Re: Harry's Grandmother

Hi there... nice page, Amanda :) I don't think there is any possibility whatsoever that Aerin was Harry's Damarian relative. I haven't read the book recently (read it for the first time almost 10 years ago), but I do recall the impression that Aerin had reached legendary status by Harry's time. Harry's time is akin to the Imperial period in British history, particularly the mid-to-late 19th century; Aerin's time has a far more medieval flavor, and I believe it is mentioned that centuries have passed since Aerin's feats. I read the books out of order, so I knw Aerin as a person before I knew her as a legend, and I still have a picture I drew of her big "dragonslaying" party when I was 11 years old. Sometimes it seems like yesterday *happy sigh*... and I still read Robin's books after all these years. :)
