I hope you are staying safe and calm in these troubled times.
I’m sorry for skipping a couple of weeks again. Our various, non-writerly, tasks became too much. Besides planning how to return to work safely, we have to assume more responsibility for my 90-year old father-in-law, who has become slower and more fragile.
Cosmic LockAthanor has teleported to the nearby town to deal with the outcome of the attack. Note, Violet can see what’s happening through a special amethyst he wears. Athanor has just met their staunch ally, Grand Master Hanuman.

It ended with this sentence: The white-robed Grand Master bowed, “I am at your service, Griffin.”
In the next snippet, I’ll conclude this lengthy opening scene.
Relieved that Athanor had a powerful companion for his search, Violet returned her attention to the interior of the forge. Stimon had recovered from his trance and was showing his apprentice the next batch of work. Clasping her white woolen shawl around her thin chest, Tingu gazed abstractedly at the opposite slope of the volcanic crater.
Little Varan tugged on her hair, babbling, “Dada?”
“We’re going home,” Violet said. “Dada will come later.”
After saying goodbye to Master Stimon and his apprentice, Violet propped Varan on her hip, touched Tingu’s hand and ported to the Griffin’s Eyrie.
They emerged in the great room of the Griffins’ castle. Comfortable seats were arranged around the big fireplace next to a marble statue of a griffin. On the opposite wall, a large picture window showed a golden stripe of sunset under the darkening sky.
Grand Masters Violet and Athanor Griffin return from beyond the Cosmic Rift with two shiploads of rescued children and escaped slaves, but their enemies have not been idle in their absence. Avalon is in flames and their little son is missing. Finding him may be the easiest problem for the powerful couple. They must unite the fractious Grand Masters, stop the bloodsucking Ixioths from enslaving sentients, and seal the Rift to prevent new incursions of the vindictive Nulls. Can they overcome the challenges and secure peace for the galaxy?
I hope to release it before the listed date.
