Things in this chapter that have made it abundantly obvious Neferet is, in fact, Queen Tsi Sgili:
- She’s wearing a necklace with raven wings as a pendant.
- She’s advertising her rejection of Nyx by not wearing a Goddess insignia (ignoring the continuity errors)
- She literally quotes the prophecy, telling Stark to “aim for… the one that will make the earth bleed.”
- She uses Stark, an undead fledgling, to kill Stevie Rae. This fulfills the “through the hand of the dead” line of the prophecy.
