Rise of the Huntress-- Spoilers

So... on page 373, Tom shouts out "There's darkness inside me, too!... I can match anything you do. I'm the hunter, not the hunted!"

But... the title is Rise of the HuntRESS. Tom's not a huntress. Initially, I though the title referred to Bony Lizzie, but we've killed her off, so I'm thinking that the Huntress has to be Alice. Is anyone with me on this? Or am I totally off base.

Also, I'm excited for Ireland. I want to see more of the Morrigan and the Celtic witches. AND I hope nothing happened with Grimalkin-- I want her back because she's awesome.

If I Stay-- Spoilers

1. The scene where her grandpa is at her bedside

"It's okay," he tells me. "If you want to go. Everyone wants you to stay. I want you to stay more than I've ever wanted anything in my life." His voice cracks with emotion. He stops, clears his throat, takes a breath, and continues. "But that's what I want and I could see why it might not be what you want. So I just wanted to tell you that I understand if you go. It's okay if you have to leave us. It's okay if you want to stop fighting."

2. When Kim is at her bedside:
"I do have a point to all this," she continues. "There are like twenty people in that waiting room right now. Some of them are related to you. Some of them are not. But we're all your family."

She stops now. Leans over me so that the wisps of her hair tickle my face. She kisses me on the forehead. "You still have a family," she whispers.
