In an excoriation of an episode, we wrap up Messenger. Make sure you listen to hear how we respond to all of the suspense built up in the first half of the book. This episode is rather quick as the reading is short, but we cover many perspectives on the resolution of the book. There’s a discussion of the powers of the protagonists, the worldbuilding, and arc of this particular novel. Once again, we confront the idea that these books all feel like separate books, rather than a cohesive series.
Next week we will be reading chapters 1-22 of book 4 in the series, Son.
