Woven In Moonlight Readalong: Day 3

Lovely photo by @obscure.pages

Hello again everyone!

Who’s excited to read today’s pages? It’s now day three of our readalong and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone for joining me on this ride!

It feels like were at a crucial point in this story now! Will we finally find out the identity of El Lobo and what will happen between Rumi and Ximena? I cannot wait to see what’s going to happen next.

But before that, we have our semi hush-hush giveaway to cover! What’s that? Oh just a chance to get your next FairyLoot for free as a reward for reading! It doesn’t really get better than that and your chances are so good too! We don’t really announce this anywhere else as we truly want the person from the readalong to win! If you’d like to try your luck, all you need to do is follow these steps!

Now with that being said, let’s pick up from where we left off and read pages 145- 216 🙂

Please be warned, the following will include spoilers for Woven in Moonlight by Isabel Ibañez up to page 216! Read only if you’ve finished those pages!


We pick up and things are tense, time is running out folks! There’s now only 4 weeks until the wedding! One month to go and we’re no closer to finding that supernatural weapon, do you have any theories as to where it could be?

This whole scene with Rumi and Ximena is so freaking cute– I cannot! He does accuse her of using drugs- but besides that, cute! He’s supposed to be her enemy but he clearly cares for her wellbeing…

Can we talk about the moment when she knocked out some drunk woman by kicking her in the head?!

Yes! Finally here’s El Lobo!!! Interesting how she can’t tell if he is Illustrian or Llacsan as his accent matches that of a low lander, is he disguising that too? This guy seems pretty smooth but she’s not giving anything away, staying silent, good tactic. Is he also searching for the Estrella or just causing more havoc? Is this a character we’ve already met? I know I have my suspicions…

Well crap, the guards arrive and their conversation is cut short which is so frustrating! My heart was racing when El Lobo approached Pidru and it seemed like he was about to finish him off, I wasn’t prepared for another death!

Ximena finaaaallllyy comes to the realisation that it’s not all Llacsans she hates, just Atoc and his priest Sajra, which is one hundred percent valid in my eyes. It is troubling however to be reminded that the real Condesa hates all Llacsans. I can’t imagine she wouldn’t come to care for these people too, if their roles were reversed.

What are your thoughts on Juan Carlos? I am definitely warming up to him but I’m not sure I trust him quite yet. Plus his resemblance to Rumi has me questioning whether they are related? I know some of you have had the same theory!

Oh my! The scene with the tongue and cutting off the journalist’s hands?! I would have been nauseous too! Ok ew at Atoc demanding she give him a son unlike his first wife! Who was 15 when they got married, even more ew.

The tapestry moved again! The lizard jumped off the tapestry!

This is so cool and unique! A room full of new woven friends, how adorable? Plus helpful, let’s just hope the parrot can deliver the message to Catalina!

Loving how amongst the flirting- which usually leads to an argument– Rumi keeps giving Ximena reality checks, there’s so much she didn’t know about her own history and how the Llacsans suffered under Illustrian rule. Would Catalina really return things to how they were if she were ruling? I have hope that she wouldn’t but do we truly know her?

Sajra’s attendants now want her to know she’s being watched. They’re not being as careful, is this him threatening her? if so, he must know what she’s been up to. Right, now to search this tower! Ooh she’s finally putting the moon dust to good use I see and the woolen ants can pick locks? So handy!

Of course Atoc had the Princesa locked in a tower, so original this guy! Interesting how she laughs at the idea of Rumi being in love with her, maybe they are just friends? There’s still hope for Ximena, yay!

Ok so apparently the King changed after he lost his childhood love in the revolt and he became bitter, all of his energy turned into ensuring his legacy. A lot of people lost their loved ones in the revolt Atoc and they didn’t turn into power hungry creeps, just saying…

It turns out the princess has spies all over the Castillo and she’s in cahoots with El Lobo!? Does she know his identity? Who do you think it is? Like some of you, I’m torn between Juan Carlos and Rumi because we keep being reminded of how similar they look, it could be either of them! Or maybe both? Or is it someone else entirely? I gots to know!

Ok wow so Princess Tamaya can read people’s minds through her weaving? If you could weave people’s innermost thoughts and desires, would you want that power? I feel like that could backfire pretty quickly!

I like the twist of the army of ghosts being llacsan miners, forced to mine silver by the Illustrians and now their souls are trapped inside the Estrella! Like some kind of mega horcrux?

So we know now that he locked her away for attempting to steal the Estrella but this has me wondering whether she wanted to keep it’s power from her brother or whether she planned on using it herself. She’s is in league with El Lobo to free the prisoners so she may have my trust after all! Plus I admire that she won’t run from her brother but she is running out of time!

Yay, El lobo is back! She’s really going to take on six of Sarja’s spies all by herself? And that ended as I would have expected, she is K.O.

Oh crap, the priest will unleash his awful magic on all the Illustrians back at the keep, slaughtering them all, unless she gives him the name of El Lobo before Carnaval. I just hope El Lobo isn’t Rumi! Is she going to have to choose between his life and her peoples’? Things are getting even more intense!

Oh my, what an explosive end to today’s chapters! We have a new mission, find out who El Lobo is! Do you think it’s going to be Rumi? Or Juan Carlos? Someone else entirely?

And what did you think of the woven animals who came alive from the tapestry? I think that’s one of my favourite parts of this book so far, they sound adorable! What’s been your favourite part so far? Do you ship Ximena and Rumi as much as I do?

Let me know your thoughts friends and I’ll see you tomorrow!

  1. Wait wait wait: Juan Carlos is half Illustrian?? My first thought is that Ximena’s tapestries reveal their meaning only to Illustrians, sooooo did Juan Carlos see the secret message woven into the first tapestry?

    The princess! Finally! She’s a really nice, bright person, I like her already. Also it seems that Atoc once was a nice guy? I like this, I can’t stand villains that are plain and flat, like “urgh I’m doing evil deeds because I’m bad uuuuuh oooooh”.

    The truth about the Estrella is quite a shock, I suppose the ghosts had to come from something but I didn’t expect something so harsh.

    OK, so the priest totally has his own agenda behind Atoc’s back. Let’s see where this goes, I can’t wait to dig into the tomorrow pages!

    P. S. I almost forgot: I’ve posted my photo and my Instagram handle is sputnik.books ✨

    1. I totally think Juan Carlos could see the message now and I agree, very glad to have some back story on Atoc to make him more of a fleshed out villain!
      Yes!!! the priest has to be up to something!
      Thank you for entering the giveaway ☺️

  2. There are a few things in this book that doesn’t make sense, but other than that, I love it so far! I might have to start tomorrow’s reading right away.

    1. I’m hoping we’ll get more answers and things will be more explained too 🙂 so happy to hear you’re enjoying it!

  3. absolutely more to juan carlos i think, i’m convinced he’s el lobo disguising his voice, as a guard he would have an excuse to visit the princess/give her meals etc and then information alongside it too

    the princesses power is pretty unique, i didn’t expect that one at all. i’m sure it’s a blessing and a curse, knowing what everyone’s inner thoughts are, and being able to display them for all to see, perhaps that’s why she’s been locked and kept away.

    love the weaving of the animals, the llama particularly!

    posted on ig as @katcandyfloss

    1. yesss I definitely am still torn between the two! it would make a lot of sense if it’s Juan Carlos 🙂 ooooh interesting, maybe that is the reason she’s been locked away…
      Isn’t the llama the best?!
      Thank you for entering the giveaway!

  4. It’s been awhile since I last hated a character so quickly. Priest Sajra literally has no redeeming qualities so far– murder, blackmail, mutilation. ?

    I’m so intrigued by Ximena’s power and am looking forward to learning what her little woolen creatures will be able to do.

    I don’t know what to make of Rumi or Juan Carlos yet. If I had to choose, I’d say Juan Carlos is El Lobo and his mother being Illustrian is another reason in his favor.

    It was so interesting to learn El Lobo is really one of the Princesa’s spies. From the little we’ve seen, I think she would make a much better queen than Atoc or Catarina.

    1. Isn’t the priest THE WORST?!
      yesss his mother being Illustrian builds a strong case for it being Juan Carlos! Yes I’m thinking the Princesa would be the better option too 🙂

  5. That was a part loaded with history and background information. Finally some questions are answered. And I get what was meant with history and politics slipped in, you can easily draw real life parallels with some of the stuff. I knew the Illustrians were not all just good and caring, there’s some darkness in the past. Especially when you think about the ghosts, that’s stuff for horror movies. But I love the idea.
    Important and oh so true quote is on page 178: “There will be a day when even you won’t be safe from our neighbors.” There’s some wisdom there. And the following of this sentence, what the priest does to those poor journalists, it’s so cruel and horrifying. His magic is really scary. But funny, how Ximena says after this that her dreams are the stuff of nightmares. Girl, those ARE nightmares, that’s what the word means.
    The development of her relationship with Rumi is great. Now she even starts to chew mint leaves when she expects his visit and has a feeling of something fluttering inside her. So cute. I wonder though, when she will read that book. I’m sure she will eventually. Maybe after the meeting with the princess and the reveal of the true nature of Estella.
    It already bothered me in the last part. It’s a minor detail, but Ximena is afraid of heights. Yet she climbs over the balcony. Ok, you can say she does what needs to be done, but earlier she mentions having breakfast on that balcony.
    At least we finally meet El Lobo. I know, the fight scene in Atocs office is supposed to have me bight my nails, but it was so funny. Can’t help but imagine a comedic Zorro movie fight. El Lobo is so entertaining, I want more of him. Wonder, if Pidru recognized her. If El Lobo is Rumi or even Juan Carlos, he for sure did. And don’t forget the nastiest chicken and cat fight to have ever been seen in the castello. This image is just hilarious.
    Interesting reveal that Juan Carlos is half Illustrian. Could he maybe see the message then? And as it’s mentioned that he and Rumi look so similar, is Rumi part Illustrian, too? Maybe that’s why they both could see the magical thread.
    The little twist in her magic is so interesting. Very neat that she can weave her messages onto the animals and they deliver the. I’d have loved to see Catalina’s reaction to that parrot. The idea is so beautiful. But I kept wondering, how could the Llacsans not notice the Llama made of wool in her room? I had to laugh when I read that the animals hide in the tapestry during the day. I love this whole idea. Now I’m wondering, does the merchant’s tapestry have little bee shaped holes in it?
    The next part will be so interesting. Whom will she betray? She already started to doubt Catilina.
    On a side note: Suyana is a really beautiful name, one of my favourites so far. Oh, and: Words empowered by justice can never be silenced. (p. 177) This book has some quotable stuff.

    1. I’m very happy to be getting some more history too and i think the ghosts are a nice touch! As heartbreaking as that is!
      Ooh yes that’s a great quote. They are nightmares ?
      I love that she now chews mint leaves too, it’s so cute!
      ooh I didn’t pick up on her being afraid of heights! The image of the chicken and cat fight is hilarious, definitely made for a good distraction. interesting, perhaps they are both half Illustrian and could both see the message, hmmm makes me think they both could be El Lobo!
      I love the magical wool animals too, definitely something I’ve never read before! ☺️

    2. Yesterday I didn’t have much time, so I just spit out my comment without reading anything. But now the book had a little shoot and was posted under the.little.world.of.eva.
      Just wondering, as this is my first readalong: What about those who don’t have instagram?

  6. I had to finish, I couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t wait to see what happened. But no spoilers. I absolutely love everything about this book. Maybe because I’m Latin American so I identify with a lot of things. This had me biting my nails all the time.

    I love sloths!!! I posted my pic on my ig @nosequepongo

    1. Oh yay! So happy you loved this book! It’s definitely a nail biter and I love the wool animals. Thank you for also entering the giveaway ☺️

  7. I really love the magic Ximena can use. It’s not something I have read before and I hope she ends up weaving an army of animals to help her.

    I have to admit, I don’t love Rumi and I don’t like the idea of them together. His support of the King fills me with disgust, even if he turns out to be EL Lobo. At this point, it feels difficult to feel sympathetic with any of the characters, with the exception, perhaps of the Princesa. The Illustrians and Catalina winning seems like a terrible idea too. The only positive result would be for Princesa to end up the ruler and Catalina ceding her place and the King dead, IMO.

    I also secretly thing El Lobo is Miguel… with zero evidence to back it up other than his suspicious absence.

    I posted on Instagram as @bkbarons1

    1. I agree the magical elements are so unique, I love it! 🙂 Yes, Rumi’s support of the King is definitely questionable to say the least…
      oooh I love that theory that it could be Miguel! We have yet to learn much about him.
      Thank you for posting and entering the giveaway!

  8. Had to finish the book but no spoilers. I liked the animals coming to life although I couldn’t quite picture them. Especially when they were able to harm.
    Will post later today @artistry_and_books

    1. I really like the animals too 🙂 although I do have to wonder do they still have teeth and claws or are they fully wool? haha
      Thank you!

  9. Juan Carlos and Rumi seem to obvious to be El Lobo. I think Sofia’s brother Manuel is playing a part and might be undercover and acting as El Lobo. And probably I’m the only one but I don’t ship Ximena and Rumi, not sure why. But how interesting and cool is Ximena’s magic! Not something I’ve read before! Also I didn’t expect this book with the cute cover to have bloody scenes in it with the tongue and hand cutting etc ? but I’m intrigued and looking forward to the next pages.
    I posted my picture on Instagram @tessa_elvina

    1. ooooh interesting that you suspect Miguel! We don’t know what he’s been up to really hmmm…
      I love Ximena’s magic too and omg yes I definitely wasn’t expecting to have so many grizzly scenes but I love how high stakes it makes it feel 🙂
      Thank you so much for posting and entering the giveaway!

  10. Really enjoyed today’s pages,.

    I’m hoping we see more of the princess as she seems quite in tune with what is going on.

    I’m loving that the tapestry is coming to life from the moonlight wool that Ximena is using.

    I’m still thinking it might be Rumi that is El Lobo, I could be wrong and it could be Juan Carlos but that just seems too predictable to me


    Photo posted under neverendingtbr

    1. I agree, excited to learn more form the Princesa! Perhaps Juan Carklos would be too predictable but I still think he know’s something haha
      Thank you for posting and entering! 🙂

  11. Hi! So I would love for El Lobo to be Juan Carlos but I am now thinking it might be Rumi. But all together, I’m not sure at all and have no idea ?. So we’ll just have to keep on reading!
    I dont know if I ship Ximena and Rumi. I have no idea if I can trust Rumi so I want to learn more about him.
    I absolutwly loved meeting princessa Tamaya. I think she is my favourite character so far.
    Those are my thoughts for now. And now I am going to make the photo for the challenge! My instagram handle is @warnar.books

    1. I feel the same way, I’m completely torn ?Definitely hope we see some more of the Princesa too!
      Thank you so much for entering the giveaway

  12. I’m leaning more towards Rumi being El Lobo even more after today’s chapter.
    Ahhh I loved the animals in the tapestry coming to life! What an amazing magical skill to have.
    I love how she used the ants to unlock the door. Wondering ifbshe will use the other animals for other things 🙂

    I added a photo to Ig under the name @KawaiiStar87 ☺?

    1. Yes today’s section definitely has me leaning towards it being Rumi again!
      Wasn’t the part with the ants cool?! I can’t wait to see what else they can do 🙂
      Thank you so much for entering the giveaway!

  13. That was an intense ending too today’s pages. It was interesting to learn where the ghosts came from, what will Ximena do with that knowledge? Will she still go after the weapon just to keep it out of Atoc’s hands?
    I just loved seeing Ximena learn more about her power and bring all those cute animals to life, love the idea of them hiding in the tapestry’s during the day.
    I don’t know about the romance, did he love the princess or not?? Was it an unrequited love and is that why she laughed? So many questions hopefully we’ll get answers soon.

    Posted to instagram, my handle is @jasminereadsbooks

    1. I agree, the ghosts being Llacsan miners is very interesting and kind of heartbreaking too. Yes, them hiding in the tapestry was a very nice touch as it would be pretty difficult to hide a huge llama I imagine ?I’m holding out for more information on Rumi and the Princesa’s relationship too!
      Thank you so much for your post and for entering the giveaway ☺️

  14. Oh my, I’m in love with this book ? those tapestry animals sound so adorable. Anyone else think of the princess bride every time El Lobo is mentioned/appears? I’m getting strong dread pirate Roberts, a.k.a. Wesley, vibes. Also, low key want princess Tamaya to take the throne, she seems like a badass to me.
    I have posted my photo at @han_pan_sketches
    Can’t wait for tomorrow’s read ❤

    1. Totally getting Dread Pirate Roberts & Zoro vibes. The Princess would make a much better ruler than Atoc & probably better than Catalina too

    2. Yay!! So happy you’re enjoying it so far, aren’t the animals adorable?! ?omg yes totally getting Princess Bride vibes ?
      Thank you so much for entering the giveaway ❤️

  15. I’m not yet sold on Rumi X Ximena
    But I want to see it grow if possible

    It’s nice they challenge each other
    But I still think there’s something off about him.. Some secret (still think he’s El Lobo)

    Shall look forward to post my picture later this week ?
    My account is #bookdragonbrew

    1. Yes he totally could be, there’s definitely more to him I feel and I hope we get those answers soon! Thanks so much ☺️

  16. I’ve posted my challenge photo. My IG handle is Jenthebookishbakernz

    We finally met El Lobo & the Princess. Definitely not the same person. Pretty sure Rumi & maybe also Juan Carlos are El Lobo.

    That evil priest needs to die a horrible death, so does Atoc too probably (unless he is secretly under the spell of the priest)

    Love all the woven animals…I want a woven sloth so much. Is it the wool that is magic or is the magic coming from Ximena?

    Rumi is not in love with the Princess and the Princess knows it…..maybe Juan Carlos is though?

    1. Thank you so much for posting! 🙂
      I have similar thoughts of it being both of them! The priest is the worst, I hope he gets what’s coming to him. Ooh interesting I think the magic is coming from Ximena but maybe it takes Llacsan wool to make it work this way?
      Yes! Maybe Juan Carlos…

  17. Im really enjoying the magic, love finding out all the special gifts they have.
    The animal are so interesting , I would love to know if people have had this power before. Like are powers passed down?
    Also can wait to see who the animal she creates are going to affect the story.

    1. I’m really enjoying the magic too! Ooh good question, that would be interesting if the magic was passed down, I hope we find out some more about Ximena’s parents too.
      Thanks for entering the giveaway! 🙂

  18. I’m really enjoying the story so far. The magic is quite interesting. I like finding out people’s powers but I would love to understand more about how they come to have each type. Are they passed down in family’s like the reading the stars. Has anyone had the power to bring animals to life before?
    The animal sound so amazing walking, breathing teddy beards of sorts. I can’t wait to see who they are used .
    I also feel like they

    1. I agree, I’d like to find out more about how the magic works over all and whether it is passed down too! We know the Illustrian magic comes from the moon and stars but does that mean the Llacsan magic comes from the sun and earth? I have many questions haha.
      walking breathing teddy bears, yessss so adorable!
      Thank you so much for entering the giveaway too! 🙂

  19. I have literally tried to post a comment twice already. I’m loving this book and the character growth and new characters and will be posting my photo tomorrow with the handle @mysecondhomeisinabook

    1. So happy you’re enjoying the book 🙂 so sorry about the comments not posting! Thank you for entering the giveaway, we look forward to your post 🙂

  20. I genuinely thought El Lobo was the Princesa until these chapters ? now I’m not so sure! Maybe Juan Carlos?

    I’m also starting to think that Ximena and the Princesa might make great rulers if they ruled together? Joining the two people under a balanced rule maybe. Who says two people can only rule together if they’re married?

    I’ve also posted a picture of Woven in Moonlight on my Instagram at @alwaysbookishbecca ?

    1. I’m totally confused too and keep going back and forth between suspects ?
      oooh ruling together! Yes! That would be ideal. Thanks so much for posting your photo ☺️

  21. I posted my picture and my handle is bookishly_kenia.

    It’s so hard for me to pick who I think El Lobo is but man I hope he doesn’t betray her. And the princesa I’m also hoping she’s planning to liberate her people and join all people to peace (a girl can dream) The priest infuriates me but I do think he’s got motives to take the throne even though I feel he already has control! And the king he’s just nasty.

    I’m really liking this book!! ❤️

    1. Thank you for posting a photo and entering our giveaway ☺️
      Yesss it’s so hard to pick! it does seem like the priest is pulling the strings! So happy to hear you’re liking the book so far! ❤️

  22. Really enjoying this book, though there’s a lot to keep straight in my head. I know Ximena thinks Juan Carlos is El Lobo, but I’m not sure, I think that’s too obvious. Maybe Rumi? I wondered if it might be the Princesa, but from the descriptions we’ve had now they’re completely different builds. I think Juan Carlos is working for the Princesa though, I and I still don’t know what’s going on with Rumi; I don’t think his adoration for Atoc is real, but I don’t know what he’s trying to hide with it!

    My insta handle is @jrosewordsmith and I’ll be posting later today

    1. So happy to hear you’re enjoying it so far 🙂 I agree that Juan Carlos could be working with the princesa and I just hope we find out more about Rumi soon!! I get the feeling he’s hiding something, El Lobo or not! Thank you for entering the giveaway

  23. I am super shipping Ximena and Rumi!!! I might have to binge the rest of this book soon because it’s getting to darn good ? but I love the little personalities of the woven animals and how she feels safer with the more vicious ones around.

    I am super intrigued by Tamaya and kinda wanna see her in power! For all the talk of his much Atoc is changed I’m guessing she’s going to be sacrificed in order to shut her up, but she seems clever and wonderful and I sorta love her already.

    The Estrella is a super interesting twist and I feel like more injustices are being thrown Ximena’s way, leading up to an ultimate test of her loyalties.

    I’m posting a photo today! (Madamepincers)

    1. So glad to hear it’s not just me who ships them ☺️ Aren’t the animals a nice touch? I love how unique this magic is too. oooh yes Ximena is going to have to make a real hard choice here!
      Thank you so much for entering our giveaway too ❤️

  24. I added the tag to my IG post 🙂 I’m @thefaeriethatreads

    I am really enjoying the pace of this book, it’s starting to get really interesting.

    It’s certainly brutal in places! And I keep reminding myself that this is based on Bolivian politics and history.

    Is anyone else rooting for Princesa Tamaya to come out as the ruler after all this is done?

    Ximena keeps thinking that Catalina wouldn’t make a good leader but I can’t help but feel frustrated by that as Ximena keeps letting her anger get the better of her. After all she did have the messengers killed and Catalina was horrified. I think she was a little more like Atoc than she’d admit but her story arc seems to be opening her up to understanding you can’t tar everyone with the same brush.

    Still really loving the magic, I hope all of the animals are utilised in some way but can’t see how the sloth will come in handy >.<

  25. Just uploaded my pic @chloescurrentlyreading ☺️

  26. For a split second I thought the priest was going to be a good guy but nope he most definitely has his own agenda.
    I’m glad we got introduced to the missing sister though I feel there’s more to her locked away story!

    My Insta is: Books0507

  27. Yesterday I was too busy to read these pages. Only did it today!
    I am really enjoying this intriguing story and these characters! The more I read the more I want to know what will going to happen!
    I will post my photo tomorrow!

  28. I’m finding the debate between whether Juan Carlos or Rumi is El Lobo. Personally, I think it’s Rumi. Can’t wait for the reveal on Thurs/ Friday!

    ~ I entered the competition @cinnasbooks

  29. I’m a little bit behind on schedule but I really enjoy what I’ve read so far!!

    I have many theories but I am waiting to see…

    Also I entered the giveaway

  30. I am loving this book so much more than I thought I would! The magic system is so unique, I love the weaving of moonlight into the tapestries, and when the animals came to life was my favourite part so far.

    I think El Lobo is Rumi – his slouched posture, his smell, and the way he fawns over the king are all a cover for the tall, dashing figure of the masked vigilante.

    I am, once again, running behind on the read-a-long, and really need to catch up this weekend!

    I will be posting a pic on Instagram, my name is @tinasparkle04

  31. I finished it and totally loved this book! There was so much that I didn’t forsee and it was amazing (like the live woven animals, this gift is so awesome). For El Lobo, I totally saw who it would be but I wasn’t disappointed by it 🙂
    I was so happy when I saw that there would be a second book (I can’t wait to read it and I really hope they won’t be another war for the throne).

    My Instagram name is : enaemoana

  32. I really, really loved this section. Weaving the little animals, could you even imagine how amazing that would be.
    I also absolutely adore anything El lobo related, he reminds me of Zorro, still torn between which side character he could be, Rumi could be a good choice, the smell of mushrooms etc could be a great cover, as well as his fawning over the king buuut Juan Carlos could fit just as well. Or what would be really cool would be if it was Atoc’s sister or someone else entirely.

    1. Also entered, linda.k.kodachromes

  33. I am a bit late commenting these as I don’t get a lot of reading done these days but I’ll come back to the remaining days whenever I’m finished with a section. I love hearing everyone’s thoughts!
    Also, I entered on my account @patriciabeiten. It’s a very simple pic but I thought sometimes less is more. Hope you like it! 🙂

  34. I’m at a crossroad honestly. I think Juan Carlos could be El Lobo seeing as he is half Illustrian and he is a guard so he most know how to fight and get out of situations. El Lobo also knows his way around the Castillo and if you think about it at the beginning when Atoc had taken Ximena to where he planned to kill Ana Juan Carlos was missing. He never showed up again during which El Lobo showed up. Juan Carlos also has access and would know where Princesa Tamaya is. At the other hand I could see Rumi as El Lobo because he knows how to fight, he knows his way around the Castillo he’s been there the whole time, he’s pretty close the Princesa and some of the things he says makes him seem like he doesn’t 100% agree with Atoc. I feel like he tries to hide the fact that he doesn’t agree with Atoc as a cover see he tries to be overly nice and wanting Atocs approval at everything. That could be a cover because everyone in court thinks he’s a joke so no one would take him serious therefore there’s no room for suspicion.

    Sajra pisses me off so much he definitely has something up his sleeve. He knows that the Illustrians aren’t protected anymore so why hasn’t he shared that with the king? And why didn’t he automatically take Ximena to Atoc for punishment? He’s shady shady! I don’t like it! -.-
