The second vignette in the Betweentimes series is “To the Flame” and may be considered more “required” reading for Afterlands as a bridge between Book I and II. This piece is about yearning, contact, and facing the void.
Betweentimes are slices-of-life about tossed things, lost things, and making the best of bad situations as our survivors navigate the new world order following the events of Afterlands: After the Harrowing. Stories are presented on this website, always free to download.
If you are new to Afterlands, it might help to familiarize yourself with the characters and events of the previous stories first.
