OK wow Part 1 is done and that was quite the ending to it and OMG everything was so sudden and just.... I'M RAMBLING
-S P O I L E R S-
I was going to do a methodical discussion. Honest. But all I can speak is gibberish so this post is going to be me crazy screeching. Bear with moi.
OKAY NORBU THE ABSOLUTE JACKASS. I could have just pounded on his head with one of those big, vintage sewing machines.
I ABSOLUTELY WAS SO MAD AT HIM THROUGHOUT THESE CHAPTERS. I mean he tries to get everyone drunk and lose, set fire to all their work, BROKE MAIA'S HAND, found her secret, exposed her in front of everyone and I AM OVER HERE WANTING TO DROP HIM IN A VOLCANO.
AND EDAN MY PRECIOUS BEAN FIXED SO MUCH! He set Maia's bones, told her about Norbu using magic, helped her out of her sentence (Although I was at that point sad he didn't speak out in front of Lady Sarnai to help. but also I understand why he couldn't) and then is going to make everyone forget the truth about Maia. Edan is the sweetest honestly.
Lady Sarnai. When she called Maia and asked her to be an ally, I was kind of hopeful for a friendship to develop but it was kind of SQUASHED LIKE BUG when immediately upon learning Maia's secret, she sent her to the dungeons and her death.
The Emperor is honestly the most intriguing at this point. WHAT is his secret?? Why are people so crazily attracted? Maia says the "spell" was broken only when he left and I kind of thought it is a spell? Like an actual spell maybe? We'll find out soon enough
