Ok so this was a short story, not a lot to say. We go back in time to see how Uorsin (that bastard) and Salena first met and made their deal. Their deal that now shapes their children. And well, she was brave, I could never have done what she did...
It's free right now so hurry if you want to take a first look into this world.
So I have no complaint about the writing style or the page by page development. It is as good as it can be within the flawed concept. Nor am I complaining about the difficult conversation in the cave in which the heroine finds she has trapped herself with her own strategy. The problem is in the limiting fatalism that occurs in the heroine's perception and thinking before they meet in the cave. First, she is assuming that her visions are complete and represent all possibilities. I find this an unlikely violation of the chaotic nature of life. Second, she is assuming no other than one of two paths can be taken. In a short term situation, like the conversation in the cave, we might believe that. Over 20 years, it seems unlikely. The number of possibilities is not likely so distinct. The author does not hint at any outside force forcing such a distinction (though the other novels might provide one). And third, based on life experience, it is just not possible to believe that anything good can come out of the heroine diving into such a hellhole of emotional ruin as she does. With real characters it would not produce three wonderful daughters, but at best, three distorted and mean witches. And forth - yes the author cannot stop compounding fundamental errors of character with her clever page by page writing - the closeness of the Tala to their animal nature utterly precludes the kind of 20-year plan the heroine makes, in any kind of reasonable world.
