Oh that was lovely. I do enjoy Megan Whalen Turner's writing in this series so much. Now I want to start over and read the whole series again from beginning to end. In fact next month I think I might. What vivid characters and situations!! Somehow in just a few well chosen words she makes me see these people and care about them. I actually gasped at a couple of points, I had gotten that absorbed in the story. Just so good.
