Awesome book sat up most of the night reading it. And that's all I can say for the present.

*** SPOILERS START HERE ***

Hey, it's been twenty four hours... and thirty something minutes.

Holy crap, a lot happened. I don't even know where to start. The end with Zaria didn't shock me too much, all the people that died kind of did, even though it makes a lot of sense given their histories.

Anyone figure out why Hank wanted to wait two weeks? Was it so that ending was assured and Reah was put on the throne, and all the corruption to the high demon race was finally wiped away?

Another series down. I can't wait until the next one!

I guess that's Blackwing Pirates, time to set my countdown clock :D

If I had to guess. I would say that there was a lot of things that had to happen before, and things that could have happened to prevent the final reckoning.

For one, Jayd needed the opportunity to redeem himself that was offered. Had Zaria changed what was sooner that test may not have been valid allowing the "flaw" to continue forward.

I think that the Mighty strive to keep a balance and act, mostly, when that balance is out of kilter. The High Demon race failed their test in an epic manner, so now we see that failure balanced. The race can continue forward without the flaw and a much healthier attitude. Any bets that there are a lot of female High Demons births before the male to female births balance out now?

I also think it was important for some of the humanoid population of Kifiren to spend a week traveling the tunnel with Lexsi and Kordy, and to fight with them and Reah in the battle against Jaydevik's army so that they would trust and accept Reah as the new Queen with Lexsi as her Heir apparent.

This book did a great job of bringing together a lot of stories that were left open in the past. If Connie keeps all this in her head, I'm in awe of her plotting and planning abilities! I would need sixteen whiteboards covered with diagrams and post-it notes.

Loved the way she used her experience cruising New Zealand and Australia within the story. Those countries should be paying her for advertising their tourism. (Minus the R"aak invasion!)

Do you guys think this is the end of the Lissaverse?
Felt like it to me. I'm going now, before I start crying. :unsure:

No, we already know that BlackWing Pirates is the continuation of the series, and we have snippets

There are still plenty of questions to explore!


Wisdom/Charles as father to Zaria, Kierra and Connor? There's got to be a good story there. I don't think Connie would just throw it out there and not follow up in some way.

Zaria/Corrine's continued evolution. Bree said that Zaria, unlike any of the Three, brought her own power into being. She now contains the Metal Library within herself, so that has to increase her power even more. And she has gold on her wings! How cool is that?

The "Mindsighted" snippet featured Lissa with Winkler, so we'll see how she copes with the loss of Gardevik and Tory.

Can some one answer a question for me? The last I remember, at the end of "God Wars, Finale", Tybus and Gavril/Teeg were sharing one body. In "Demon's Due" they were two people who are identical. Apparently, I missed reading how that changed. When and how did that happen?

There seems to be a trend of our heroes referring to their ladies as smelly vegetables. Cabbage? Onion? What's next? Will Gavin start calling Lissa, "my little turnip"?

Breanne bought Gavril back and enabled both to exist as separate entities even though technically Gavril is Tybus reborn. On the "Lissaverse" or more correctly the Le Arth Veronis Universe Connie has said there is more Sarr Thalar stories to come it is just all her other books have been getting in the way so maybe we will get those now she has tied up some of the loose ends.

One thing I'm curious about, it said the library knew everything in creation. Down to the smallest rock.

Does that mean that now Zaria can trace the untraceable? Like Breanne, Reah, and all the other untraceable people, I know there are more, but I can't remember them right now, and even general stuff, like the Sirenelli?

I think I spelled that last one wrong.

Either way, she's like the only omniscient god and she can reset the universe, not sure how much more development there could be for her character given those facts...

Wow, never saw that coming, jayde and garde leading most of the high demons down the drain. Wow, talk about cleansing, only the larentii have not much done to them by the rogue gods beside the mind cloud that I am aware of. I don't know if losing most of their women in their species was attributed to a rogues influence or not. And morwin at the end using Zaria as a weapon. Should
he not know better?

@David - I would believe that the "Library" would work more along the lines of you if you don't ask it won't tell ... like it did with Lexi.

@Ann C - The rogues fear the wrath of the one, if they directly went after Larentii, they would be in the same boat as Acrimus ... dead.

There is a lot going on in this story, it answered a whole bunch of questions, tied up a ton of loose ends, but it did open several interesting lines of thought.

Morwin - he and his family now owe Zaria a debt ... that could be one hell of a ride.
High demons - with the deadwood cleaned out, and instruments of change in power ... they could become what they should have been ... protectors.
Reah - we have basically been told she will not keep the queenship forever, it should be interesting to see what drives Lexi to the throne.

I saw several more, but what did you see?

I agree Larry, but the point is if someone is hiding behind a Sireneli... She can ask instead of tracing timelines.

But no, not like Lexi, she IS the library now. Remember in the last fight, when Lexi was given fire the "voice" of the library was different and strangely familiar. I'm pretty sure that's because it was changed when Zaria absorbed it. It's also why the library won't respond to Lexi anymore, because Zaria fully controls it, not the other way around.

Effectively that makes Zaria equal to if not more powerful than the three.

Bree pretty much stated that.

I think Connie is going to either have Zaria divest herself of some of her Power or set up a situation that drains (not the best word but it's as close as I can come at the moment) some of her Power. As it stands Zaria is very close to what Charles was, I just don't see Zaria allowing herself to fall into the trap of absolute power corrupting absolutely.

I also think that there are balances that need to be restored, for the universe to thrive there must be competition. Please note I said competition not whole sale slaughter.
