My heart hurts a little for Rayek. He really came full circle and embodies the growth someone can accomplish. And to be in love with Winnowill whose idea of growth is more perversion and how she taunts him for it. It was one heartbreaking thing to watch him walk away from the castle to not live near it but to have it leave and him stay behind. Gentle Ekuar, such a stalwart supporter of Rayek, but there is a part of me that hopes he could have peace and go with the castle.
