In this chapter, the story continues from where it left off at the end of Extraordinary Part 1. Cassie is about to meet the Craevyrn, the feared enemy of the Graysons, and the evil creatures she has been dreaming about for weeks. What will they demand of her friends? What do they know about Cassie and Astra? And what will Alex do to protect the one he loves?
Extraordinary Part 2 is, in my opinion (and really what do I know? I just wrote it!) the darker half of the Extraordinary story. Cassie has a lot of choices to make, and a lot of growing up to do.
I was discussing her story with my husband in the car on the way home from work today. I made the comment: "Cassie is brave. Only she doesn't really know it. She has to go through a lot to discover just what she is capable of, and just how brave she really is."
At this point in the story, Cassie is afraid. But, she is about to be presented with a number of opportunities to develop from a frightened "child-like" character, into a stronger, braver, more powerful "Star Kin-like" character.
This story will take her down some darker, more serious roads, with a number of decisions to make. And not only her: Alex, though he has been around a lot longer than she has, is rather naive, especially when it comes to Cassie, and love. He has a lot of learning to do in this part of the story as well. Not every decision is easy, or black-and-white. Not every decision leads them where they expect to end up.
I'm excited that you've decided to join me on their journey. I hope that it is as interesting to read as it was for me to write.
