The ending didn’t feel like an ending, even though it has to end some how. Hem is still mourning the death of Zelika, a friend of his.

Plus, because we don’t even read Cadvan and Maerad coming together, we only read the afterthought of it, it makes it seem even further away as a possibility. I wanted just a little bit more.

For being told over and over aliso over the course of the four books that The Nameless One was the bad guy, I sure knew next to nothing about him by the time Maerad and Hem sang the Treesong and he was defeated.
