  • Katherine's birthday gift from Scott was an evening of Gilbert & Sullivan at the National Concert Hall

  • Holybrooke construction has also been going great guns. We now have roof rafters!!! they are now putting the roof back on the west wing, which had a fire a little over 30 years ago.

  • Katherine is glad everyone is enjoying In The Service of the King

  • Katherine has finally started Childe Morgan.

  • Katherine said that Jiri and Se Trelawney will be back.. "you can count on it."

  • Se is pronounced Shea, or Shay.

  • Lewys vanished on Bee's birthday

  • It is doubtful Katherine will ever be more specific about what happened to Lewys ap Norfal

  • Katherine is having great fun sorting out the Camberian Council in its earlier incarnation.

  • There are reasons Lewys was kicked off the Camberian Council. She says he was a kind of "loose cannon"

  • Lewys is a progenitor of Jehana

  • Stevana's grandmother was Grania d'Oriel (yes same Oriel's)

  • Ships in use during Kelson's time - jibs have just come into use. Galleys are still common. See KKB for details.

  • Katherine's favorite parts of In the Service of the King are:

    • the bit in the scriptorium where Zoe and Alyce discuss what their various animals are going to do....

    • when the king has Alyce help him interrogate the suspects in Krispin's murder.

    • The enrollment of Alyce and Marie at Arc-en-Ciel.

    • and she had fun with the conversation between Alyce and Zoe on Alyce's wedding morning, too.

  • We will get to meet Kenneth's two younger daughters, his sisters, and his aunts in the next book.

  • Arc-en-Ciel does exist in Kelson's time, we've just not seen it.

  • Katherine thinks Zoe may end up at Cynfyn with Jiri.
