twenty-thirty pages left of book 3

I'm having trouble finishing the third book of the Vineart War (I reviewed the first book Flesh and Fire a few weeks ago) because [SPOILERSSSS for The Shattered Vine]everything. Uh, there's stuff like pacing--she kind of had an issue with that in Flesh and Fire too, it felt like everything was pretty compacted to the end, though not unreasonably so, but this one had a lot of Jerzy muddling round in the middle and then suddenly bam sixty pages to the end and now people start rushing around like mad chickens. Also, Mahault and Kainam's fathers drop dead. And I don't think I will like how/what Jerzy does. Oh Jerzy, don't do it!

There are three ways things usually end: yay, bittersweet, or DEATH. Things to pick from are stuff like:
  • sail away forever
  • die
  • restore things to status quo and then go away
  • restore to status quo of before and take up more responsibilities (HEA)
  • die from overextending self
  • die/pass on because the world has changed too much and no longer fit/cope
  • many other sad things


You get the idea. [further spoilers]I'm afraid Jerzy is going to die. SHE KILLED MALECH, all right? Giordan! She maimed Ao. It's not quite totally unpredictable who'll be killed, but this close to the end, I have a feeling he might be for the block. Mostly, I'm bugged by the pacing, though I haven't even finished it yet. What if it's all crumpled together?!
