When they call her on it, she grumps at them and then everyone forgets about it until the next time she marchettta it. This is a badly written poem. Her character development for each and every character was stunning.

The first thing you see in the novel’s first pages is two maps, one of the land of Skuldenore and one of the country of Lumatere.
