I would hazard a guess that the threat of war, an impending wedding, oracles predicting either the death of your beloved or your as-yet unconceived child might make you a little...disjointed.
Sure made for a disjointed book. And yet, the wedding interruptions were vastly amusing.
That said, after all that drama, the battle seemed to be...almost an afterthought. Which is odd considering how all-encompassing it actually was - all of the People, the shifters, mercs, several random mythological beings, etc., all uniting to fight against Kate's dad...and a considerably larger force. I mean; I get that spending very much time on the battle would make it boring. Just seemed like there should have been more.
