Olivia Waters She was three years old when she ACCIDENTALLY killed her mother. Sure it was her storm that killed her mom, but she was three years old and wasn't really able to control her powers. Hell she wasn't able to even when she was twenty years old. She was that powerful! I don't really understand how you could blame her.
Noonecansinkmyship @Mari Did you even finish reading the whole book. They have a whole scene where she tells Wynter about how she accidentally kills her mother in the beginning of the book. Wynter tells her that he's sorry but that she was just a child and Kham has to fight to keep from crying for several minutes because of how guilty she has felt all her life.

Futhermore, the author made it abundantly clear that Queen Rosiland would have survived the injury if it weren't for the fact that she was already sick. If you want to blame Kham then heck, King Verden is responsible too (which you would know if you read the book because Tildy, Kham's maid literally explains it to her when Kham said that she was the reason her mom died).

Just because the author didn't outright declare how devastated Kham was, doesn't mean that you couldn't tell through everything that she said and did that it was a heaviness that always weighed on her heart.
Mari And why doesn't she feel at all guilty for having killed her own mother??? Sure she was a kid, but it was a temper tantrum that made her kill her mom. If she wasn't such a spoiled brat, and was a nicer kid, her mom would be alive. She should at least UNDERSTAND why her dad doesn't like her. In fact, she is NOT very likeable.
