The final chapter of Swan Knight's Son is little more than a denouement. Gil returns the kidnapped baby to its mother and earn his the earthly rewards.
That he so misjudged how his actions would be seen by the 'normies' of the town is unsurprising given the wisdom he had shown moments earlier when dealing with the Erlkoenig, the Winter King. Either Wright dropped the ball here, or Gil is still learning and hasn't quite figured out how to slide through the Twilight. We'll give Wright and Gil both a break. It's Gil's day on the job, so he can be forgiven for making a few minor mistakes.
And that, dear reader, closes out The Swan Knight's Son.
Thank you for reading along with us. We'll see you next year when we start off 2017 with a bang by reading Shambleau. My exposure to C.L. Moore has been limited, maliciously if Jeffro is to be believed, so I'm looking forward to reading a work by this undeservedly forgotten old master.
