The first two chapters of Enid: The Soulkeeper are now online for free. You can read them here: https://www.dylandevinewriter.com/book-preview
Some things to keep in mind:
1. You can read on mobile devices, but a laptop or tablet with a wide screen is recommended.
2. Headphones are also recommended for the best reading experience. (You'll see why.)
3. Just like the rest of the book, the contents of the preview are adult, and the barrier for entry is quite high. There are a lot of obscure terms and phrases that you may not be familiar with, and a lot of casual allusions to medieval and religious nomenclature.
Without further ado, enjoy this glimpse into the mystical world of Tolvia: a world of enchanted forests and ancient folktales; a place where nature itself seams to play a role in the human condition, where humanity bursts from the seams of reality itself, and history feels alive.
If you liked the preview and want to learn a bit more about it, check out this spoiler-filled essay I wrote going through the backstory of how the first two chapters came to fruition: Reflections on the Enid Preview.
