Mostly these reflections help the character deal with life. Sometimes grey show major faults in our characters with their feet of clay, even a Druid without much ability to see faults in others of prescience in the bad plans or intended actions in others.
I’m not very pleased at waiting more than a year between ebooks that have grammatical and misspellings in them. They aren’t rocket science. Rather see authors complete a series before starting another... or get sidetracked by other short stories, novellas and the like.
Trying not to give too much away, suffice it to say that King Coroticus was undone by the circumstances surrounding his daughter’s abduction—even after she was safely returned. He became suspicious of everyone and started behaving antagonistically toward his neighboring tribes, inevitably bringing hostile forces against his own fortress. He even developed an implacable jealousy of the druid and the queen. One evening, during a particularly rowdy feast, while a dancing Queen Narina tripped against Bellicus—and of course he kept her from falling—the king walked into the room at that moment:
The spell was broken when Narina, eyes flaring, drew back, away from him, and then something hit him, hard, in the side of the face.
Instinct took over and, even as his head rocked to the side, he threw out an elbow, feeling it glance off something, but his momentum brought him around and he unleashed a left hook that hammered into his attackers open mouth.
Bellicus felt the skin split on his fingers as they hit bared teeth, but the stinging pain from that was nothing compared to the feeling, as if ice-water had been thrown over him, when he recognized whom he’d just punched unconscious.
Oops! Needless to say, things went from bad to worse and Bellicus was on the road again, doing as much “damage control” as he could against forces that affiliated against his beloved Alt Clota. The Picts were a particularly powerful enemy, aided by Bellicus’s mentor, the druid Qunavo, and the beautiful Ria, another druid who Bel was attracted to. Now they were enemies—or were they, exactly? Once again, we see that the tribes quarreling amongst themselves leave them wide open to their common enemy—the Saxons—though not everyone has even recognized the danger yet. And we know that the Saxons, who worship different pagan gods, are inevitably going to lose the war against the Christian religion. There are a lot of subtle plotlines underlying the action, and at this juncture the only solid belief is the druids’ belief in their own power.
