Felipo certainly has a silver tongue and some real impressive guts as well, with how well he's managed to deal with the elves so far. I'm also liking Odysson so far, he's a real foul-mouthed guy, but one has to respect his desire to stick to his fellows. I wish they'd all be able to survive, but given the prologue, how harsh their world is to people and those flags at the end of this volume? I have a bad feeling they won't, aside from Sira.
