A satisfying conclusion
I loved the story. It was not a traditional story, in that there is no massive battle in the usual sense. The enemy, the "bad guy", is so dark and insidious that it is a really interesting journey with Aralorn and Wolf to find out how to defeat him.
Without wishing to spoil the surprise, the "trick" Aralorn plays on Wolf that reveals a lot about how much they have been through together is my favourite moment. It really touched me, and was very well written.
The scene where Aralorn returns home is excellent. The revelation of her being surrounded by family is a real eye opener into her character, especially after being so isolated previously.
When Aralorn believes her father is dead, it was really moving. It is very well written, emotional without being overly sentimental.
Again the narration is excellent. Katherine Kellgren does an excellent job of all the difficult language and characters. I really hope Patricia Briggs revisits this series in the future.
