If you’ve been reading since the series began, you know Allumette’s fighting style has been seriously hampered beyond the memory loss. She’s been like Wolverine without his claws, Cap without his shield… I can’t think of any DC references so I’ll end it there. Of course, as you can see from Trane’s expression, the reintroduction of the deadly sparks into Allumette’s life is not entirely welcome.

And thanks to readers Gary and smithy who figured out the connection through Makvala’s gloves and emailed me instead of commenting… not a huge revelation but your efforts to avoid being spoiler-y are much appreciated!

We’re taking a short break before chapter 8 begins. Thank you all for reading, and if you haven’t already, sign up for our email list so you get notified when updates happen:
