Chapter thirty six (I almost wrote thirty sex) is the final rite of passage for Jacob. Sex. I didn't go hard core, for obvious reasons, but I didn't just pull the curtains and fade to black. Hopefully it'll be honest and not exploitative. I didn't go to the extremes but it's not G-rated. I guess we'll see how readers take it. I think after all this waiting, people will want more than just a kiss on the lips. I know I would.
After that, we get Jael's POV again. After several chapter's absence. Which was the reason I went with the structure I did (One chapter from Jacob, one chapter from Jael). I wanted readers to get the feeling that Jael really was gone once we stop seeing her POV every other chapter. We'll see if it works and if it's worth the frustration editing this novel and trying to keep that structure.
But that's not the only climax here, pardon the pun. We also have the final confrontation with the Sorcerer. I know I'm subjective, but I really love these last few chapters. I love these characters and it may sound weird but I love letting them earn their happy ending. (or bittersweet ending. Parting is such sweet sorrow...) I think all these moments work well but again I'll have to see what readers think....assuming anyone ever gets this far.
Sigh. Still haven't gotten anyone to finish this bloody thing and give me feedback.
Ok, end spoilers.
