Just so you guys know, the author introduces a new character in this chapter, but he doesn't let the reader know the sex of the character, so, right now, I'm not using any pronouns for the character. It's a bit odd to have the name show up every single time, but that's the reason.
Thanks to everyone who voted for the novel in the rankings, and if you haven't, please do. It'll let everyone know that you are enjoying the story and our work.
