After divisive episodes on Gathering Blue, we are back this week with renewed hopes for book number three, Messenger. This community connects our first two books and also develops its own struggles and complexities. The protagonist Matty is a fun character to read from, and we are excited about the darker themes being explored in this particular conflict. Both hosts do take some exception to the ret-conning and world inconsistencies revealed, but are hopeful for the second half.
Next week we will be reading chapters 12-21 of book 3 in the series, Messenger.
