If Alice does actually have sex with lukrasta,wouldn't you have to raise the age rating on the book? Also is it possible that Alice might be having a baby related to her promise to pan? I know this is a seemingly random idea and that you can't answer it easily. But I would really appreciate it if you could give me a clue.
It is for the reader to judge and more will be revealed in ‘The Dark Army’ but there will certainly not be a baby!
