I think the ending worked out a little too well (for most of the people involved). This is the book that I was the most excited about after starting this series. Layel and an Amazon warrior, I don't think it could have worked out better. I do wonder why the Amazons haven't been mentioned in this series before this book. Maybe they have and I missed it?
I'll admit to being really curious about the Amazons in this world. I'm wondering how they are all female How her father can be a centaur when she looks human? I'm also wondering if her father being a centaur wasn't a homage to Xena? Random thoughts and they aren't likely to be answered, since there is only a short story/novella left in this series (The Amazon's Curse).
