I have greatly enjoyed watching Imrahil take on a life and logic of his own in Isabeau's hand. It stands to reason that he would fall for the one woman who won't have him unless he applies himself to the difficult task of finally growing up and into the wisdom that we later see hinted at in ROTK. Nimrien holds her own in this story, as a character and as the object of Imrahil's affection; it was good to see, too, her strengths as a behind-the-scenes scholar who plays a pivotal role in her suitor's diplomatic success. That we get to see Andrahar's and Imrahil's relationship developed as well is just icing on the cake. I won't even stoop to mention in this forum that it'd be great to see another chapter soon...
