The hardest part of writing Raven’s Song was the ending. Should she live happily ever after, or should it all end the way she always thought it would? Those of you who write your own stories know that sometimes a character dictates their own fate and seems to take their tale out of your hands. Raven was one of those characters. The original ending was the one she wanted.
Many people who have read the book had hoped for a different type of ending. If you are one of those people, then this is a gift for you … The final two chapters written as Balin would have wanted it, if he had been in charge instead of Raven.
