Day 5 already! Wow we are making great progress!!
-S P O I L E R S-
Okay wow Zash about to kill himself. Honestly I feel the same as Nastya, angry and hurt. Alexei is just too freaking sweet. But also *grudgingly* he's right.
Those words at the end of chapter 29 - "You can save Alexei's life. And then disappear from mine."
But I would have probably felt the same as Nastya and even said something worse! I definitely am looking forward to Zash's explanation, not sure if it will be a good one but nevertheless I'm intrigued and wondering whatever it could be.
BUT OKAY JOY IS ALIVE AND SAFE AND THAT FILLS MY HEART WITH SUCH HAPPINESS.
I like Zash's grandmother. She's such a practical and kind lady and I wish we'd seen more of her. Also am I the only one curious about all the food mentioned? I want to taste borscht because it sounds like the perfect comfort food. (If anyone knows, is it just a variant of soup or quite different?)
ALSO ALEXEI MY BRAVE, PRECIOUS BOI! when he woke up and asked Vira "Will you fight with me?" I swear I had a lump in my throat like Nastya. That boy deserves SO much better!
And when Nastya questioned if the bond of their hearts spans death, I got all choked up again. Seriously, this book is making me quite emotional!
OH OH also the spell leading West to Dochkin. That's such a brilliant little thing. I hope they find Dochkin soon and fix up Alexei!
I feel like a lot happened in these chapters but also not much happened? I'm not sure how to explain but yeah!
-L E T U S D I S C U S S -
What do you think is going to happen next? Do you think they'll find Dochkin without any trouble from Yurovsky?
