Yay Crown of Dalemark! Ummm. . . yes, more of that then it should be
comes from Navis, but Navis is perfect. I can't help myself. Anyway, I
like Maewen quite a bit, too, and, as sad as Duck is, I still quite enjoy
_reading_ about him. It has one of my single favorite conversations ever,
the one between Navis and Alk, simply because it takes on _such_ different
meanings after finishing the book. Yes, it was slightly disappointing
that this was the first DWJ book I ever managed to successfully guess most
of what happened at the end about - but I wonder to what extent that was
just because I was getting older. And it makes up for that by not only
having the major villian spend most of the book as a horse (although it
may take knowledge of Usenet Robert Jordan culture to make that part
particularly valuable), but also making this figure-outable before it is
actually revealed (and no, I didn't figure it out before it was actually
revealed, but I realized it _could_ be on second reading).
