Another fantasy author (whose work I am not familliar with) interviewed JC and asked her some pretty thought provoking questions about the books and the theme of love and religion within. I thought I'd link to them and open up a discussion if they bred any thoughts of our own here.
Warning! For those of you who have not finished ALL of the books in BOTH series, there are HEAVY spoilers in these interviews. Do NOT follow these links or click on this thread in case we discuss them if you don't want to be spoiled!
