The main character, known simply as “The Doctor” may be perceived as an antagonist in the novel. In truth, he’s a far more complex person, and he inhabits a far more complex role than that perception allows for. Careen won’t learn all of that until far later in the series, so careful readers will do well to learn from the prequel tale.
The characters from Uncounted who also appear in Salvaged include the Doctor himself, Mistral, and a young girl named Sophie. In today’s update, the Doctor meets Sophie for the first time. Click the teaser pic below to see how that introduction came about.
