It’s been an intense week of going through the last edits but they’re practically done now and I can resurface for air!
This is another excerpt from the first chapter, focusing on the deities of the world in the Hyllethan Gifts trilogy. As hinted in the first few lines, the gods are Zy’el, the god of death and the afterlife, and Ay’el, the god of life. The idea of the eye painted on the boat came from the Maltese traditional fishing boats with their typical Eye of Osiris. As for the gods’ names, the saying ‘the Alpha and the Omega’ led to the names beginning with A and Z.
