I try and read through this very quickly. I hate horror stories etc. It
comes up so quickly in the story though that I'd read it by the time I
realised what it was.

No. But I think I'd just like a character list! (I could do one, I suppose).
And probably I need to find out more about Fitela.

Not sure I have an author's note at the back...will check my hardback.

(I've just read Northern Lights for the first time, after putting it off for
a couple of years, and I'm really ready to discuss that. But I think
girlsown has a Philip Pullman discussion scheduled for next year.)
