Also I do like a bit of political intrigue and I find it very convincing that despite a potentially devastating war on the horizon, the Terafin house is more concerned about succession and power moves. Very human!

That's clearly where we're supposed to think it's going.
I'm kind of hoping that the author doesn't do the obvious and have

That scene in the healery where Jewel is close to death and Levec/Dane heals her is so wonderfully written. Excellent stuff.

This was discussed recently, either in the original thread or Abyss' thread. No concrete information is provided about the rings in the Sun Sword series. QT said that more info is provided about them in the Sacred Hunt duology.

And finished!

Overall I'm still well in for this series! Already have The Shining Court ready to go. However I am taking a break to listen to The Silmarillion as read by Andy Serkis so it'll be a while before I return to this series.

So Chapter 1 and I have questions already.

Everyone seems surprised that Jewel is leaving to go... somewhere... but I thought half the point of book 2 is that she comes to realise that she needs to head South with Val anyway? Why is everyone in shock that she now needs to leave?

She came to realize it, yes. But it's another thing for the Empire to actually consider losing its only seer.

Ooh Anya seems fun! Super powerful chaotic mage living in the Shining City, most of the top demons are wary of her, I'm a fan already even though she's obviously going to have to face the "good guys" at some point...
