I just finish reading the first book of the soldier son trilogy. I have one question.

Why doesn't the magic act on its own in Nevare?
The tree woman said the magic will usually act on its own once it claims a person.
Yet, in Nevare's case, he doesn't do anything to betray his people and help the Speck until the tree woman actually activates the magic in him.

Why is that the case?

There is much to come so just keep reading and you will understand. It all becomes clear eventually

I had finished book 2 and 3 of soldier son trilogy. Book 2 is tragic and sad. Book 3 moves at a slow pace.I am glad the story has a happy ending, though.

Yeah, I really liked the first book...the second was sad and tragic, and the third felt like nothing happened...it felt like they walked back and forth in the same part of the forest doing nothing and then the happy ending seemed forced...i feel like the ending was "Disney'd" up for us, like Hobb felt she put Nevare through so much that she had to throw him a bone.

I agree. It is a happy ending for everyone.
Soldier boy gets to be with tree woman forever.
Everything that turns up bad turns up right, again.
