She even made a choice that will impact billions of people without seeking their consent in her defense, it was a time sensitive choice. Fifth Grave Past the Light. Villain Natesa remains the shrill monkey on Edie’s back, and she never changes.

But, by the end, the book really came together. Chilrden expected to learn a lot more about them, personally and emotionally, but no such luck.
