LEGACY OF THE CHAIN

FLATLAND FICTION

SUMMARY

A tattooed wizard unleashes double-edged magic in this excerpt from the novel The Sisters Will Dance. The wizard with the strange patterns of ink swirling across his skin discovers an audience of one in the young man named John Johnson. Spells of earth and smoke unfurl at the wizard's summons and captivate John, whose life until witnessing such magical powers felt timid and dull. The wizard saves his most amazing, and most diabolical, trick until the end. With water and chain, that wizard wraps John's soul into floating, iron chain, and so forever shatters the smooth conformity until then known by John Johnson's days.
