My favorite fantasy books don't spoon feed it to me and have a lot of complexity so I spend a lot of time speculating. If you're spoon fed what's the fun? If you really want a dark mind twist read Beyond Redemption and The Mirrors Truth by Michael R Fletcher. So much fun in an F'd up way. They are part of the Manifest Delusions series. I'll get to your book as soon as I clear a few obligations.
