This is less a question than a thank you. I read The Darkling Hills back in like 1989? when I was a young teenager. It was the most movingly sad and beautiful book I had read to date, and left me with so many questions unanswered. I just finished Calling Up the Fire and not only was it good in its own right, it really felt complete. Thank you for finishing the story.
I'm very glad to hear Calling Up the Fire was a satisfying ending for you after so many years. Thanks for letting me know!
