    It boils down to who his parents are... who was his father? And for the record, his mother's name is Rose. Now isn't that interesting?

    Correct me if I am wrong (Not owning the first book myself), but isn't the baby from the prologue Sanglant and the stroy behind his conception?

    Nixie hasn't read all of the first book, Jaxom. So Nixie if you don't want to know then stop reading this.... Jaxom your right.

    Oops, didn't mean to post a spoiler, I got confused. Wasn't it obvious, or did Kate keep readers guessing for a while after, sorry I didn't remember that part as being a mystery. Sorry :(

    No harm done, Jaxom. It's one of those things that make me wonder why she did that. Henry and Henri and then two boys. And then the first section is called The Motherless Child, but there isn't any mention of Sanglant. Interesting...

    That's the million dollar question Nixie. Just keep reading. No one knows who Alain is.

    EDIT: Except Kate. *whisper mode on* I think Kelpie knows too. lol *whisper mode off*

    I have another question is Liath who they say she is.I know Anne's her mother but is Bernard really her father:confused: Also was Liath born at Lavastines holdings the same time as Alain..and who was the fourth child?

    Anne is not Liath's mother. Bernard is her father.

    Interesting that you ask that Nixie, I often, and still do think that Liath might have been that same girl, but she's not. For a while there I wondered if we would see that 'girl' but we haven't and I don't know if we ever will at this point in the series. I think it may have been one of those points in the story that Kate was going to develop and never did.

    When you finish reading The Child of Flame it all will be made clear. And to answer your question... YES, they are. :)

    Bernard is dead? Alain is the child of a whore and an Aoi shade. What he 'is' with relevance to the story - God knows. Part of me just wants him to be nothing now. However, he is mainpulated by so many forces it seems unlikely.

    ***SPOILER*****

    Why would Alain be brought back in time to Adica if he was part Aoi? And if he is part Aoi, how did he not get effected by the Great Weaving?

    Enough questions for now.

    that's an interesting question I never thought of before. I'll have to think on that one for a while. And you might think of Alain as not Aoi. I'm not so sure he is.

    I know your thoughts on Alain Alia. Until I am informed otherwise I will assume he part Aoi.

    Well even if he is part Aoi I don't see why the weaving had to have any effect on him, it didn't seem to change Sanglant much.

    I think Alain is the Blessed Daisan reborn. That's my theory and I'm stickin' to it...
