Since these new issues started comming out, time seems to go by very slowly ;) I think Wendy could post a few more spoilers while we're waiting.. Obviously I'm of the spoiled graphic novels generation. No patience at all :D Cutter recognizing Timmain, the thought never crossed my mind before... I always thought it would be Skywise and Timmain, because of his dream about the star who turn into an elf maiden, and him saying (to Ember??) that he wont recognize unless he gets the stars in return (which probably will happen if he continiues to stay in the palace and learn from Timmain). Have you not noticed the panels in "Full Circle" where he thinks of Timmain? The picture of Cutter and Timmain looks like they're saying goodbye to me. I think Timmain and a bunch of elves will go with palace, searching for a new world to live in without humans.
