I’ve been looking forward to Will and Alyss’ wedding ever since The Sorcerer in the North. So, to have a very sweet, intimate short story that tells of their picturesque ceremony bought more than a tear to my eye. Where the story of Evanlyn and Horace’s wedding was filled with fanfare and drama, Will’s and Alyss’ was simple and small – something that actually seems like the most perfect wedding in my eyes.

The lack of drama and violence within this story, although unexpected, was kind of nice. It made the idea of Will and Alyss tying the note even more endearing. And, Halt’s presence and comments throughout just topped off the feeling of completion that this last story in The Lost Stories exuded.
