I kept pressing the next page on my e-reader convinced there must be more. Then sitting back and thinking about it I realised how engrossed I was in the rich imagery - I could read many more chapters on this intriguing story. By the way aaron lilies are also very aptly called "varkore" - pigs ears. Sometimes authors are so busy showing off their smug phraseology that they loose simple readers like me, who only read for pleasure. I certainly enjoyed this read.
