My Ranking Points
For whatever reason, I’m almost completely convinced that lady lesso’s backstory will be revealed this time. Also, I wanted to point out a pattern that I noticed with the constant trail of death. So, what we know about it is:
1 whoever is going to die next is likely to have a single chapter.
2 we also know that there’s been a small pattern in at least some of the latest deaths. The characters that had only one chapter and were killed off both happen to have names beginning with ‘C’; Chaddick, and Clarissa. So who else has a ‘C’ name?
3 the first chapters of the new book are significant to future events in the book. (Thus why Soman gave us one of Sophie’s chapters as a sneak peek.)
4 this book is supposed to be similar to the third book in action, excitement, etc.
5 Evelyn Sader, Vanessa, Aric, Lady lesso, professor Dovey, lady gremlaine and
Nicola are likely of some significance, as the holes in the story have been caused by them, so it’s likely that any chance of understanding the current plot holes require learning more about them. All of them.
6 Agatha and Sophie are likely going to have more to do with the tale of the Lion and the snake, because of their outfits displayed on the cover. (My thoughts on this: what If they are in the switched costumes bc it reflects their souls? The lion killed the snake, even though he had a rightful claim to the throne, so doesn’t that make the lion evil?)
7 they won’t be staying near the usual places. (This is shown on the cover, no longer with castles in the background, but rather a tropical area, perhaps a beach.)
8 Sophie is unable to remember her past for a portion of the book. (There is however, a possibility that she stays like this longer than anticipated.)
9 Sophie will marry Rhian. In crystal in time, willam and bogden predict that Sophie will marry Rhian. And the cards are a method of foreshadowing so…
10 Rhian comes back to life? There is speculation that Sophie will bring Rhian back with her blood. Why? That’s to be found out.
That’s it for now! Comment below if i missed something.
didn’t she already die? But maybe we get Callis back somehow. Not like back from the dead but in a vision or like how Arthur was able to talk to Tedros at the end of book 5. Agatha would be able to talk to Callis and some major plot point would be revealed that way.
Yes, she died in book 3 (I was pointing out another point in the patter), and while I’d LOVE to see Callis again, I don’t think she’ll come back. A lot of her backstory was already explored in TLEA.
Ah . . . but I do feel as tho we aren’t finished with Callis. I have no idea why tho
The first chapter is actually from the covens POV, so an said he didn’t want to spoil it. But I don’t think you missed anything. Good detective vibes!
hmm. at least Soman revealed that Sophie wouldn’t be “mind-controlled” the entire book, so she’ll gain a conscience some time along the way. i liked the things you pointed out here, also!
Thanks! I think Sophie might be ‘mind controlled’ for a longer time then we suspect.
Maybe half way? I know that near the end of the book however, there’s a chapter with a somewhat romantic sounding name? I forget what it is, but I do want to know if it has anything to do with one of our ships.
Good theory but all the characters before the 4th book who died didn’t have the letter C at the beginning of their names, but still!
Also the coven starts with C…
And from the information I’ve gained on here, the coven has the first chapter… (also, thanks for the correction. The only character who has died with a C name was Callis, unless I missed someone else.)
If the Coven dies, I will literally cry, even when I finish the book.
Those are great ideas, and they’ve given me loads more to think about! I hope we find out more about Lady Lesso too, maybe if Japeth brings back Aric from the dead we’ll find out?
Thanks! I think (a personal theory) that Japheth will bring Aric back, and Aric will bring lesso back? I have no clue why, either Aric wants to kill her again or wants something, but I hope that he brings her back to forgive her. I also would like to think Aric’s father will be of some significance.
well maybe this time it might be something that starts with C bc Soman likes to put twists
You know, (not on topic of the post), but, i think Merlin and Prof. Dovey go wayyyyyy back and maybe were bf and gf ? maybe? It seems like they look out for each other. So when Merlin (If hes not dead) finds out that Dovey is dead, he will be very sad and overwhelmed. Idk just a theory!
I think that someone already said this but I thought about it and agree!
I think Merlin is like, wayyyyy older than Dovey though. Think she mentioned him mentoring her at one point? IDK
