Ahhhhhhh! I read Cast in Ruin too fast. I really need to learn to savor the books by authors I love. But I can't, I really can't. Unlike a sweet, luscious dessert, however, I CAN revisit the books over and over.
The egg and the West March, I am just gonna have to wait for the next book to have resolved. Only one of which I have any assurance WILL be resolved in the next book. Also, Kaylin and Severn actually talked about issues about each other and Nightshade that have been eating at my brain for a few books now. Kaylin even came up with confusion for exactly the same reasons I have.
But the BEST part is the addition of Bellusdeo. She fills me with glee. Especially when the resemblance between her and Kaylin was remarked on and by the Archon, even! I was nearly bouncing off the walls with delight by that part.
