I’m super behind for my readlong post this week, and I’m posting from a mobile device that I’m just learning how to use and haven’t figured out cut and paste yet, so be patient with me. Questions are from Lisa.
1. What do I think of the opening?
Lots and nothing going on at the same time. Reminding the reader of what is going on with Hyacinthe and his fate, telling us the old Master finally died, but nothing exactly new. Just resetting the scene for us and foreshadowing. Not that it isn’t eerie and wonderful.
2. Who took Imriel and what is Melisande up to?
I read these before, so I don’t want to give anything away. I can’t remember what my thoughts were when I first read it. I think I assumed Melisande’s plotting and Imriel’s disappearance were related.
3. My thoughts on Phedre and Joscelin!
I love the place they came to! I love how they grew to accept each other!
We see an older and wiser Phedre here. In the first chapter, she admits she can be snobby. She doesn’t apologize for it, and I don’t think she needs to, but I’m glad she can see it in herself and her people.
