Is it possible that Alice and Tom will ever be together? I know of the prophecy, but it can be anyone at the moment. Thinking of the shocking moment when Alice turned to the dark right after Lukrasta, the supposedly dead mage, appears out of the grimorie is heart wrenching. One look in his eyes sent Alice head over heels. Why would she betray Tom like that?
In the next book The Dark Army we will learn why Alice did what she did.
