Wow. I can't really think of anything to say. I was kind of right about how one more book isn't going to be enough for Redmerski to finish the plotlines she started in Kindred. This trilogy is part of a larger series, The Praverian Chronicles. There's going to be another trilogy, The Darksoul Trilogy. I have no idea what it's going to be about (I have hopes, mind you, but no real idea yet).
The way this one ended up wasn't that much of a surprise in the end. I loved being able to see some of Aramei's life before the blood bond and some of it explained so much about things I wasn't sure about. I'm trying to not spoil things for people!
