Why you let her become evil? I was so fond of her, I liked her as Ard Rhys so much... It tore my heart in pieces! And why did you let Cymrian die, as well?? Could Aphen not have some relief? Why were you so hard to them? Why were you so hard on the Four Lands at all? The dark shade that fell when the Jarka Ruus army occupied the Four Lands has not gone away with their new reclusion in the Forbidding! All the Four Lands now have a darker shade, the evil has shaped in new ways how all the Races will live from now on! Airshag destroyed, the Druid Order almost obliterated.... Nothing will be the same, anymore....
What are your plans for them? TELL ME!

Soooo many turning points, soooo many twists of the plot, thrilling till the end.
