Notes, comments, and thoughts about the issue. Additional comments are
Issue #21 (Chapter 5 in the Blue Book)
- Page 1 - Is this the voice of the Wishing Key we're getting in the
scroll captions, maybe?
- Page 2 - Smith Robins appears to be quite the idealistic soldier chap.
I wonder if later in the series he'll become disillusioned with the
actions of the city militia.
- Page 2 - More hints at a coming war. But with whom?
- Page 3 - Likely a picture of Islen and Baily on the wall in the
- Page 4 - Whatever happened the Mr. Porter? Was he like Heath's Uncle
Peter, much like Jenny Porter is similar to Heath's Aunt Jay?
- Page 6 - The lettering on the street sign is decidedly not English
characters, but the marketplace in the earlier issues had signs in
English. Is Asaria a multi-lingual city, with different dialects

- Page 7 - Is the building Soracia's standing on anything special, or
just some ruins? Was it once her home, within sight of Quinton's tower?
- Page 9 - The potion seems to just have sped up the healing process,
rather than completely patched Rubel up.
- Page 10 - Will the mice come back into the story later?
- Page 12 - Who did the tower use to belong to?
- Page 13 - Whose magic is it that keeps the path hidden unless you go

- Page 14 - Rubel meant to reassure Heath about Jurid, but he didn't.
Varkias hypothesizes that this is because the Soracia made him take
- Page 16 - Rubel's grandfather in the background, maybe?
- Page 19 - Rubel says that he and Varkias almost found the key.
Almost? Will this be (hopefully) explained next issue?
