You know what I really love about Pellinor? Besides everything
The fact that there’s no unnecessary love triangles.
Yes, love interests are in it (with Dernhil, Cadvan, Arkan, other boys that have flirted with her). There are hints to Cadvan/Maerad and even bigger ones for Arkan/Maerad. It’s been said in the books that she would have given Dernhil a second chance.
Yes, love is talked about between the characters a lot, but it’s to help her understand it.
BUT IT’S NOT ONE OF THOSE “OH SHE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT A BUT SHE ALSO CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT B. WHO WILL SHE CHOOSE?!?!?!11”
