Let me know in the comments what you think of the chapter (and the cover). And throw a buck or two in to support the book, if you like it.
It is well known that there is a higher echelon of nobility, above that which you or I can see. In the same way that we are able to look down at the commoners who scratch and toil for their every cent, there are others who look down upon us as well. We know the king to be at the top of this pyramid, but very little is known about those who sit just below him.
