Children of Blood and Bone: Chapter Eighty-Two Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Amari slashes through guards alongside Tzain. The stain of bloodshed is difficult to bear, but necessary. She tries not to think about the fact that she’s fighting and killing her own guards.
Once again, the heroes must use violence in service of their broader goal of bringing peace. Amari is uncomfortable with that paradox, but also feels that it is necessary.

Amari sees Inan crumble, pierced by Saran’s sword. Amari runs towards her father. The king says that the gods have cursed him with children who are traitors. Amari says it is his own blood that is the curse, and she is ready to end it.
Amari sees that not even the bond of blood will keep Saran from hurting Inan. For her, too, the ties of blood family are no longer the most important thing. Instead, she recognizes that their father is evil, and that it’s time to fight back.
