My parents were scary, yeah, but they still looked like my parents — a little paler, I guess. Some red in their eyes. But they walked and talked the same way. I didn’t know anything was wrong with them, but my aunt did.
This battle scene was my favorite because it shows that Lissa is more than a pretty face, I think this was the point in the book were Lissa being the kind person that she is the one that would help a bird in need from the flashbacks back in the First book, she starts to see here how it is very necessary to learn to defend herself, that even with a guardian, things happen and she will need to be prepared for them.
Pretty much most of Chapter 19 made me happy to read, Lissa comes back from her trial, Christian is the first to greet her back. They go back to her room and they have their moment together. Christian shows his support that he believes in her no matter what. You can see how much they truly love each other in this chapter.
