Fantasy Friday: Elantris, Chapter 5

Previously on Elantris: We learned so many things and Matt mused about zombie sex. Also, Galladon can access the ancient magic of Elantris, so OF COURSE that was the end of the chapter. This week, Sarene and Hrathen cross paths. YEEEEEEESSS. Chapter 5: The gyorn strode into the king’s throne room with the arrogance characteristic…

Fantasy Friday: Elantris, Chapter 4

Previously on Elantris: Rebecca revealed some psychological issues via her weird crush on Hrathen, the religious extremist from Fjorden. This week, we’re back to Raoden. He’s having a rough time.

Fantasy Friday: Elantris, Chapter 3

Previously on Elantris: Sarene was engaged to Raoden, but now they’re married because he died. Yeah, their religion is weird.

Chapter 3: Hrathen joins us…

Fantasy Friday: Elantris, Chapter 2

Previously on Elantris: a prince is cursed, a dead man named Galladon is too perky, and gross things are gross. I think I forgot to mention last week that Raoden lives in the city built right outside and around Elantris. It becomes relevant later. This week we get to meet Sarene, the second of three…

Fantasy Friday: Elantris, Prologue and Chapter 1

I was partly inspired by an AMAZING blog called Bad Books, Good Times that I’ve followed for a couple years now. Read all of it forever. Matthew and…
