  1. Wait, so Merlin ends the war, goes to report to his “master” (which for some reason is not involved in the story at all other than writing it all down, because he cares not for the affairs of men, I guess), and then they’re all hanging out in the forest, and this is all one chapter? That’s some strange pacing right there.
