I loved the series so much that I ended up rereading it. Whilst doing so, I came across a scene that got me to start thinking. It was in the Spook's Revenge, the blacksmith had stared at him, and said "You're dead". Well, I can't remember the exact words but it goes along the same lines. SPOILER ALERT: Was that you giving a hint on what happened in the Starblade book 1? Thanks for such an amazing series! Can't wait to read the next book.
Yes that is good speculation. Having written that it sowed the seeds of what I did in Starblade Book 1!
In the second book (which I am polishing dow) in a way that scene is returned too. It is what could happen if Tom does not intervene.
