This book is progressing faster than normal. I do tend to finish early anyway, but this is a good leap ahead in the start giving my illness.
I do think I know why. This is the second book in a series. I Know this world. I Know this character and sub-characters. I have done all the worldbuilding. I know this world inside and out.

Yay!’ and you never celebrate it with other writers like you do during Nano
