Rosemarie My feeling was that their wish from the first book - to live in a world without war - had basically come true. At least, the Angels and Chimera were no longer fighting. So now, they needed a "new" wish. It reminded me of something Oprah has said: "When your dream comes true you need to find a bigger dream." So I think that was what was meant by the wishbone at the very end - they are starting a new life with a new dream/wish. What it might be...I don't really know...it's anyone's guess I suppose. Anyone have any ideas?
