I came here hoping someone who has read the second book may have come back to provide some insight, but it seems no one has yet! This bothered me, too.
There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!
-Emily Dickinson

I thought maybe Seren is Catrin, she only emerged as Catrin after the woods.

This is likely my imagination filling the plot hole. It absolutely was a twist that could have had more of an impact if used differently.

I only read the first book, so that might be further explored in the other book. But it was random and unnecessary I'd say. She died at the age of twelve so she and Catrin should have grown together and her death should have left a huge impact on her. The loss of a sibling isn't something that is ignored and dismissed like that.

In Rhan's curse, only one individual is supposed to join Marrock and overthrow the king. In my opinion, I thought that Rhan killed one of the twins because her curse only mentioned one person killing the king. It boils down to Rhan's revenge. She wanted the king to suffer, so she took away one of his daughters, one of his biological daughters. Also, I thought if Rhan wanted one of the twins dead, then she would have wanted the other one dead as well, but then she would not get her curse to work.

It was definitely glossed over. So much in fact that I didn't even remember her until I saw this thread! Interesting that it might be foreshadowing and will have some importance in the next books.
