I think I captured Jacob's disappointment and anger at being abandoned by Isaac. At least it tugged at my heartstrings. Jael's attempts at comfort may or may not have worked. Something I'm going to bring up in the next chapter is that she really hasn't spend much time with people. In her old life, she'd appear only at the end of people's life. The rest of her time would be spent guarding the land, fighting and scouting for trespassers in 'heaven' or on the earth. Most of her social interactions have been with her sisters, not with human boys of 14. So, I think her occasional awkwardness works. maybe.
In any case, we got to the Sorcerer/Storyteller. Man, I had a grin on my face writing his introduction. I hated to stop where I did but if I hadn't, I'd likely have been up until 2 am. And I really need to be alert for work today. Anyway, should be a slam-bang chapter, on top of the emotional stuff of the last chapter. Got to keep raising the stakes!
