Wouldn’t be surprised if he is a light weight and can only take one beer.
You weren’t far from right Joel!
I like this. I really do. I’ve seen stories like this where the victim is really just a passive observer and lets incredibly obvious situations escape his curiosity, and I, the reader, am shouting, “Here’s something, go! Explore every chance you have!” Ter isn’t just a passive observer. He’s doing what the audience wants him to do, what we’d do in his situation. Observe everything and actively use all of his knowledge to try to escape. This is a good twist on the plot,and Koren Shadmi is not taking the easy route here by giving Ter a strong voice of his own.
Thanks you for the good words, I’m glad you’re enjoying this.
