Author Note: So, I heard you guys don’t read the blurbs right under the Chapter Title? Well…you are missing out. They are important because they tell histories and fill small gaps in the story about how things work. Also, a lot of them have information that creeps up in the main story.

“…The Salresian assassins blacken their poisoned daggers, except the very edge so that it doesn’t reflect light. However they can’t cover the edge as it will make it blunt. Their main weapons, the Daharii Crossbows are made pitch black…Magic is not used so as not to leave a trace of Aurora…”

Alright, some jabber before the chapter today.
Announcement: there were some issues of bad grammar and awkward sentencing in earlier chapters, but I couldn’t address them as it is tough to edit your own stuff. So, Luciferia has very kindly agreed to help me out in that regard. So, the chapters Prologue to 10 will be slowly fixed. Right now, the Prologue, Chapters 11,12 and 01 are edited and prrofread. Btw, check out Luciferia’s story Of Astral and Umbral, pretty neat and awesome in my opinion.
Next, I would like to thank every person who has commented, reviewed and rated my work, I am not taking individual names because it will take too much space, but really…thanks for appreciating my work. As an authour, I am indebted to you guys.
Here is the new cover art of How To Survive a Summoning 101, very kindly rendered by the amazing Sleeping Soul In the Sky. Don’t hesitate to tell us how amazing the illustration is.

Chapter 11: Surviving Salrest Nights
“Silent night; Dead moon.
Dark lights; Fire hearts.
Eyes like swords; Touch of poison.
Wine soothes; remembers all.
Your tongue; Invites end.
Plunge your soul; deep within me.”
– Urasin Dak’hal, Troubled Nights, Poetry from Salrest.
Author Note: Before ya’ll take out your pitchforks, hear me out. I support equality. I have always fought alongside and walked with whoever wanted equality. I have done programmes with people who wanted equality for women. But I really can’t support when feminism turns to simple man-hating. As for Sangraal, feminism has just taken root there and is still pretty much confined to ideals of the upper echelons of the society in practice, but normal people are enthralled by the idea. Since it haa just started as an idea, many have taken it up vehemently in opposition to the Chauvinism that was prevalent in Sangraal. The socio-political structure will see more powerful and self-reliant women in future chapters. I will show you how real women are, powerful, progressive. Strong women characters are…just a chapter away.
Chapter 10 : Surviving Feminazis
“…Riladvael sung the world into existence. Her voice of pure before pure existed harmonized the world to the tune of creation. Her aria rose the mountains, dug the seas. Then came her children, the Tarufavels, scions of the song. They created the creatures and each made a world for them to inhabit, hiding between them to guide them through their journey. However, from the songs also rose Za—”
