Rogue Chronicles Entry No. 107
This wasn't so much a sequel but more a companion story. It started out earlier than The Island, on the other side of the island, and also carried on a little further in the end. I really liked that, especially since Walt's side held a religion. It was nice to learn about the costums on his side of the island, and that people there were just as power hungry and treacherous as they were on Leia's side. I guess it's in mens nature, sad as that may be.
It was also nice to learn more about how the two sides belonged together, what has been truth in history and has evolved to the needs of the inhabitants, like the religion of Annabelle and her daughters. It's not like it was something far-fetched, but somtimes the simplest things make the best ideas and still manage to amaze us. And I was so happy when all their unfounded believes were shattered, well, when the truth was uncovered about Anabelle.
But most of all, I am curious what else is there to discover. We've now met the two sides, their customs and religion were found to be rooted in their first inhabitant's history, and I just don't know what else Jen Minkman has up her sleeve for this little island. Unless, of course, they make it to the World across the Waters, that'd be so awesome! I'll be looking forward to the thrid installment!
