Reader Adelaide brought Andrew a gorgeous art piece to sign, and of course we wanted it on the website too. Check out the color gradient, the stars in the wolf (!), Janner’s humble posture. That posture speaks to me, especially with the scenes that’ve been standing out in my reading lately, where Janner has shown such willingness to fling himself into danger to protect Kal and Artham. Sometimes those decisions must be made in a split second, but even so they’re based on more subtle decisions made day after day to prefer others, to identify oneself as a protector and servant. In this pose Janner seems to be saying, as he is saying every day as he learns to be a Throne Warden, “Here I am. Send me.”
Thank you, Addy.
