****SPOILERS**** I am a huge fan of all of Seanan's books. But....for the 1st time this book seriously made me question Toby. We always see Toby reacting and running and fighting with no prep time. It's understandable for her to not be outfitted with what she needs. But - this book shows her choosing to go on a dangerous quest. With plenty of time to prepare she takes ONE knife with her, no food or water, and Quentin and May are completely unarmed. Seriously? I really hope that this is going to be addressed. Maybe her move closer to pureblood is causing her reckless arrogance? Other books she'd do anything to protect her squire, but this one she doesn't even let him grab a weapon? Hopefully the next book does better.
