I get that we wanted Frigg and Syr’Nj to use different words to underscore the differences in their characters, but it’s a good thing Gravedust is similarly well-read, or Syr’Nj’s shouting “REGICIDE” to her allies would’ve been pretty unproductive.

As a reader or two pointed out, it’s a nice reversal that Syr’Nj has to go to Frigg for the conflict-resolving battle strategy.

The cover served as a clue that this blue floor and slate-gray staircase represented their quest nearing its end, but most readers were focused instead on the fact that Byron was nowhere to be seen on this page.
