Oh boy this one is really really going to need multiple reads there's that much going on. Am I right in thinking Zaria is now ranked as one of the gods and no longer restricted by Laurenti rule (not that she wasn't a goddess already)

She is a Larentii Guardian, we will have to wait to see what rules she now operates under. As Vhanarazsh she operated under different rules already, so I can see her having more freedom to act for those under her Guardianship.

That doesn't mean she is also not more. She holds the power that destroyed Liron, which means...

She wouldn't be the first to hold more than one title after all.

Qelindi, Vhanarazsh, guardian, why not goddess as well?

The extra power belongs to Wisdom, when / if he calls it back is up to him. If Zaria is elevated to "god" status I believe she would get an invitation, the same as the others that were elevated.

As to what she can be ... the only limit is Connie's imagination (which means there is not a lot of limits :-)).

Perhaps. But The POV on that explanation is Quin's, and clearly she's being kept in the dark. She knows about the mighty, but she doesn't really have a clue that she's constantly surrounded by other gods.

In a way, all the ones who were created could be described as given power from one of the three. Technically, the power still belongs to them, they can take it back.

Just saying, it could go either way because of the limited POV. But you're probably right.

My reasoning is that, to date, we have specifically seen the elevation to "god" by written invitation to all except Lissa & Hank. I think the elevation to "Mighty" is one of those offers you can't refuse.

I don't agree that the Mighty can call back the power given to other gods ... otherwise Wisdom and Love wouldn't have had to drain the rogues to recharge.

But, I don't write the books so I freely admit that I can be wrong.

What did you think of all the timing Zaria had to line up to make things turn out? How about Vardil & V'ili's appointment with justice?

Vardil and Villi got off way to easy, but it was good to see them taken out. With all the time line shenanigans I am a little disappointed we didn't get to see Norian die a third time. Seriously, at least once a series would be good. LOL. Kidding (mostly)

Was this the end of first ordinance? The plot was buttoned up for the series, unless I missed something. Even Illya finally caught a clue. I'm sure we'll see most of them again though, in other series.

Tracking them through the timeline was genius. No need to locate them if she just followed them to a point in the timeline that ending them wouldn't be interference. I also loved that she swiped all those orbs under Liron's nose.

WOW! I will read again before commenting too much.

I really wanted Vardil and V'ili to die a horrible death. either by one of our hero's hands or by their own miss-doings. like firing a Ranos cannon while cloaked (large stealth device) cause some kind of imbalance and the ship implodes killing them or something like that.

Not sure how I felt about the happy ending at the end. It reminds me too much of Twilight's fight at the end...

I thought it was about time the good guys started using the timeline to do good things (besides just plucking future Saa Thalaar from death)

Got it on my mind to change my ways, but I don't think I can be anything other than me.

Did anyone else feel that one of the Mighty was lacking representation? I saw one place he might have thrown in a bit but, I can't say for certain who provided the hail storm :-).

Charles?

To be fair, none of them really did anything except talk and give Zaria permission to fix it. The most active thing was Ashe giving refuge under his shield. Charles has always been more behind the scenes, even in God wars it was Bree and Ashe that did the most.

One of my concerns is I hope Zaria doesn't play a major role in the next, or any of, the rest of the Lexsi books. As far as the happy ending I was expecting it for the most part, too many people died for it to stand without being fixed.

If this is the end of the series I am disappointed that there was no mention of Feryis until the end. Last we know is that Amlis asked to find a wife. I thought for sure now that Quinn can have babies we would see something about them interacting. It kind of just leaves us hanging. And the next series starts 13 years. Later? That is a long time without anything happening. I didn't think the hea finalized everything.

Connie still has the Latter Day Demon series going and we can already see some over lap so there is still an outlet for stuff to happen.

Also, I don't think Amlis deserves to love Quin. When he beat her, he sealed his fate with her.

While this is probably the end of the First Ordinance story arc ... There are still the Saa Thalarr series, the Latter Day Demon series, and the BlackWing Pirates series to add to the tale, As we all know these series do tend to run into one another with high frequency. Considering that the characters live much longer than normal humans thirteen years is a drop in the bucket, look at how long Lissa tossed Kifirin out for.

Amlis, I still think he ganked any chance with Quin, but I can see him getting his own book ... Saa Thalarr anyone? (If Griffin can get in ... anyone can get in.) :-)

It's funny when Griffin trumps Saxom as the worst Saa Thalarr.

I agree there are a few more threads, but all the major ones are closed for that series, like Larry and JD said, there's plenty more series with overlap to tie those up.

Saxon was evil, Griffin was evil with family, that in my opinion, is worse. I realize Griffin is on Quins' list of projects so there may yet be redemption for him but ... /shrug.

I completely agree, that's the crazy part. He's supposed to be one of the good guys. Belen is a horrible judge of character...

The Seattle Elementals is also not finished yet,
And with the multiple world/universe or whatever thing, there is a chance for cameos from Lissa's Universe too.
I'm not sure if I want to read the next Saa Thalarr book. We already know Anna Kay (poor baby) isgoing to meet a sticky end.

Finished my 2 read of the book just now. And obviously I have a question or 2.
Am I the only One wondering why Cayetes was the boss?
I mean V'ili was technically the king of the Sirenali.
You need a planet to be king, still V'ili could obsess, shapeshift and fold space.
Cayetes on the other hand appeared to be a mere human.
Criminal mastermind yes, but I never saw him have any real power.
Why did V'ili call him master? Did I miss something?

RKET, I agree with you on V'ili working for Cayetes is very strange. At first I just assumed they were partners in crime, but as time progressed it seemed more one sided and when V'ili called him boss, I was like WTF.

My theory is that one the rouge gods (Acrimus probably) had something to do with the V'ili - Cayetes relationship dynamics. Then again, V'ili could have been playing Cayetes to his own ends, feeding Cayetes' ego by letting him be in charge all while working in shadows.

I'll have to double check but didn't Zaria say something about how many rogue gods did it take to obsess V'ili into serving successive criminal masterminds? My guess is ... that is why V'ili is not on top. Considering the number of years that V'ili has been "serving" I am certain that if he had a choice in the matter he would have been calling the shots.

That would be my guess as well. One of the rogue gods told him to. Nothing else really makes sense.
