Definitely an interesting chapter as they escapees rest and recover. It will be interesting to see how quickly they meet up with Jericho. The new sword sounds interesting, it sounds to this reader as if Magic understood his needs and used the power he put into the ore to shape a sword that would meet his needs, both present and upcoming.
lol you're either really insightful or Im getting predictable. Anyway you're half right in your theory behind Marcell's sword. Alaman (who has been quiet as of late) will come back with more explanations after things settle down.
