Annotation Elantris 58-1

Chapter Fifty-Eight–part one At least you can’t say that I didn’t warn you about the Avalanche. Okay, so I’m a prude. I’ll admit that. I like my characters to be married before they have sex. Besides, Sarene is right–she deserves a wedding. She’s waited since chapter two to have her big, princess’s wedding. She deserves Read the full article…


Annotation Elantris Chapter 57

Chapter Fifty-Seven As I’ve mentioned before, I didn’t want Hrathen’s affection for Sarene to ever be overt in the book. He’s not a man of passions, and I think he would be very good at keeping his interest unacknowledged, even in his own thoughts. He has ‘learned to ignore’ the passions of the flesh. We Read the full article…


Annotation Elantris Chapter 56

Chapter Fifty-Six This chapter begins with an interesting scene. There’s already a bit of tension between Sarene and Raoden. Nothing big, of course–but I think it’s realistic. People don’t always agree. Loving someone doesn’t change the fact that you sometimes think what they’re doing is flat-out dumb. It does, however, tend to change your reactions.

Annotation Elantris Chapter 55

Chapter Fifty-Five (With hidden spoiler text!) So, one thing you should notice from this chapter is that Raoden no longer needs his book of equations to draw his face illusion. He’s been practicing and getting better. A subtle hint, but one I decided to throw in. I don’t know if you, as a reader, have Read the full article…


Annotation Elantris Chapter 54

Chapter Fifty-Four Poor Hrathen. He’s been getting jerked around a lot lately–it’s hard for him to react to events before new ones draw his attention. In addition, most of the Mad Prince scenes happened in his chapters. That meant that when I did the revision, he lost the largest number of pages. So, his sections Read the full article…


Annotation Elantris 53-3

Chapter Fifty-Three Part Three There has been some confusion about Raoden’s line “After I left” to Sarene right before they go back into the kitchen. Right here, he’s getting ready to tell her that he’s really Raoden. He is implying that, after he left Kae (and was thrown into Elantris) he didn’t think his group Read the full article…


Annotation Elantris 53-2

Chapter Fifty-Three Part Two Yes, Ahan is a traitor. When building this book, I knew that I wanted one of the characters to betray the rest. I also knew that I didn’t want it to be the most obvious one in the group. This left me with a problem. I had to provide a character Read the full article…


Annotation Elantris 53-1

Chapter fifty-Three Part One I hereby dub this chapter the official start of the Brandon Avalanche! Let the rejoicing begin. On a more serious note, I’ll get to some of the major events in the chapter in a moment. First, let’s talk over some smaller annotations. I like the fact that Lukel doesn’t like Kaloo–it Read the full article…


Annotation Elantris Chapter 52

Chapter Fifty-Two In a later draft, I added a bit of padding to this chapter–in particular, I included more explanations by Raoden regarding how he’d been trying to meet with Sarene. I was worried that I was pushing the bounds of plausibility too much with Raoden’s false persona. One of the main reasons that he Read the full article…
