The Gearheart: Artifice Ep 13 & 14

The Gearheart

By:  Alex White

Format:  Podcast; 28 minutes

Genre:  Fantasy

Episode:  13 of 37

Jonathan's appointment with the Seeress does not go as planned, and malevolent forces arise in when he needs answers.  Will he defeat them?

My Thoughts and Summary:
Oh my!  This is one of those episodes again with so much tying together and coming out!  We meet the Seeress, a woman entwined in tree roots with wounds across her.  We learn of why she is this way, of her own approval to help her "children," the Seekers. We see what is inside Jonathan!!  Oh, this man is powerful, and very dangerous.  Jonathan is a key to more than he even realizes!

This was cool to meet the Seeress, even though the meeting doesn't go as planned, we learn so much about her and Jonathan.  And more!  We learn about what is inside Jonathan, and the dangers of him.  Audun Slade.  A new player now.

There is talks of another Antonello!  Is there a secreted Antonello hidden out there somewhere.  And why does Audun Slade want all the Antonello's dead?  What did they do to him?  I know it was mentioned that Antonello's were extremely strong alchemists.  Maybe that has something to do with it.

There is mention that the Hangman is an enemy of Jonathan's, but I wonder if it is to Jonathan or Audun.  And the Seeress mentions to tell Cog she will be seeing Wylan soon.  Jonathan doesn't know who this is.  Who is he?  Is he the one that Cog remembered a few episodes ago?  The one that told her to never forgive him?

Then!  Isabelle living or dieing depends on Jonathan's actions!  Wow! Talk about a web. lol.

Oh, sooo on to the next episode!


Format:  Podcast; 23 minutes

Episode: 14 of 37

Jonathan and Darren deal with the aftermath of The hangman's vicious attack on Isabelle, and Jonathan offers to make a sacrifice.  Will it be enough?

My Thoughts and Summary:
Now we start to see the consequences of some actions.  Isabelle is hemorrhaging energy and Darren doesn't have enough in him to give her what she needs to stabilize her.  She will die.  Cog's life gem is in tact, and she shouldn't get any worse.  Jonathan realizes the Hangman is calling Jonathan forward, through his closest friend, Isabelle.  He has an idea to save her.  But will the Council reverse it afterwards?  Now the Council are suspicious of Jonathan after his episode with the Seeress.

It seems Audun is whispering to Jonathan to crush Cog's life stone.  I'm still wondering what that man has against Cog and her late family, the Antonello's.  Poor Isabelle!  The Hangman has really injured her.  I wonder what anyone can do for her.  Darren has her stable, for the time.  But the Council is ready to snip the ties and let her go, which Jonathan doesn't want to see.  The Seeress is momentarily blind, after Jonathan's visit as well, which is not setting well with the Council.

Darren is telling Jonathan what is going on, and trusting him.  Jonathan seems to have a good friend and maybe an ally here.

On to see how Jonathan gets out of the infirmary where he is guarded by the Queensmen.  And if Isabelle makes it, and how Cog is feeling.
