We did NOT, we repeat, NOT read 2800 pages plus of Romantic historical adventure novels, forsake our bloggo, forsake all functioning besides Cheez It eating, to be forced to read a Romantic historical novel ending featuring the death of BELOVED and heroic characters. Damn you!
This being said, the end of a particularly strong Herculean character was as good as anything in Homer. You may disagree and be wrong in simultaneously if you so wish. I’m trying to freeze frame it in my mind.
