If it does, then I plot that out and follow the characters after the arc concludes. However, that first arc is almost always plotted out from the beginning, so you can just read that and experience the original story that was intended. If you want more of those characters, then you can keep reading beyond that. (less)

“That’s the illusion they preach, the trick you end up believing is real. They tell you true power is dictated by the dictator, because he lives in the ivory tower with his finger on the trigger, but the secret they keep, the part they refuse to tell you during your adolescent indoctrination…is that none of that is true. “Real power,” she said, “isn’t dealt in bullets, darlings, but in words.”
J.N. Chaney, The Amber Project

“He sweated like a whore in church.”
J.N. Chaney, The Last Reaper

“That’s what it means to be human, Siggy. Living with the weight of your past and learning to walk forward with it.”
