2nd of 12 book series
Some of the people, foods,
places and things mentioned in this glossary will be found in other books in
the series. Some will not. Some are merely mentioned in passing and have no
important part in the story; however, I included all characters, including
animals with names, into this glossary. Some characters will go on to be
important in future books, but since they aren’t yet, they’ve been listed in
the minor category column
