The Long Silence Part II

Is this really the first post of 2015?  I suppose it is.  Nearly half the year gone, and over 6 months since my last post.  I've been doing some major restructures within the book, shifting sections and massive rewrites to the parts that have already been done.  I'd probably estimate I'm nearly through the thickest part of the briar patch, and I hope to once again see the light within the next few months.  I've been working steadily, both writing and abandoning sequences.  Hopefully all this editing results in something that readers truly enjoy.  Once again, here is a non-edited sequence I worked on recently.

 “The sky is full of ghosts,” Aeden said.
Shadow looked confused, “What was that?”
Paedrig let out a sharp, quick laugh, “Mayhap the boy has the right of it.”
“What do you mean?” the girl asked.
Paedrig smiled, beaming down at the boy as if he was some impressive progeny. “How far away are stars that their light can be chased away by the sun? How long does it take their shine to reach us? How many have gone dark, but we just don't know it yet?”

“That may be the most awful thing I've ever heard,” Beodelf said nodding his head.
