Foreshadowing forewarned that something was amiss,
but I still didn't figure it would turn out like this!
Plot twisting like a wicked roller coaster
I still wish I knew which surprised me most:
when the hero kicked the bucket right before the end,
or the sidekick betrayed by a backstabbing friend,
or the way defenses weren't so protective
or how the day was won not how I expected.
Lots of new questions, but there isn't much heft
in the handful of pages that this book has left.
My best bet is we ain't yet seen the end of evil,
but we gotta wait another year before we get to read the sequel.
