Did the final part of the story come as a surprise, or even a shock, to you? Or is it something which you felt 'had to be', based on what had happened earlier in the book?

Please remember to include spoiler tags where necessary.

I think I expected the end to be the way it was with Tor and Aerin. However, what I didn't expect was Maur's revenge from the grave so to speak. How they got rid of his head was kind of funny. There was also another time switch when it came to explaining her father's death which through me off for a minute, so I had to re-read a few pages to understand what had just happened. I don't think I expected her father's death, but I did expect Tor and Aerin to marry and to become king and queen at some point.

I'm glad people look at Aerin better now, and since she's kind of not mortal now, I have to wonder when she will see Luthe again. I imagine the training she does with the children and Talat's children play into The Blue Sword perhaps. I am very curious about what happens next, so I may try reading the first book. I hear it's more straightforward.

Oh, yes. I forgot that one part where there is a time switch about her father's death. I'm sorry! That thing about Maur's revenge - that, to me, was so scary. He's STILL THERE. I wonder if his head was sort of like a horcrux, in which a part of him could exist?

Ah. Luthe. Well. I think if you try The Blue Sword, you will have an easier time reading it than you did with this one. Thank you for continuing to read it, Niffler!
