As sad as King Matt’s death always makes me (it’s so poetic and perfect, in its way), Coll’s is probably the saddest in the book for me. He is the closest thing to a father figure the book has and his death is completely tragic. I mean, it’s perfect for the story, but as right as Math’s felt, Coll’s feels wrong. His makes me want to cry because he should have gotten to die in his garden. He wasn’t a warrior at heart and it makes me sad that he had to die like that. He was so sweet, he deserved much better.
At least I didn’t actually cry this time, since I’m at work and wouldn’t have wanted to have to explain that!
