Well, I didn't remember that Sunspark was passed over so much in this book. I think it has a great development for Segnbora and of course Freelorn, finally, Herewiss mostly came into his own in the previous book. There is a part where he and Sunspark are on their own again, but he only uses it as a handy tool, mostly.
I sure hope that the eventually to be written fourth book gives their love more of a development - I mean even Hasai has more of a development arc through the three books than Sunspark - he only had significant development in the first book.
I still love the fact that this finishes the outside threats to the kingdom, so even though the fourth book isn't written yet I don't feel dangled over a cliff. And the drama is great, as always.
