| > Lionheart wasn't told what they represent until after she made her choice. She was just shown a sword and an amulet. In fact, Kelsey asked, and Meggan even told her that she and Brian were not allowed to say what each artifact represents. So, basically, Kelsey just chose a sword over jewelry. Of all of Austen's failures, I'm unable to forgive this one the most. It's bloody horrific.|
I'm not sure if I'd consider this his worst failure, but the entire plot never made much sense in the first place. Why would Brian and Meggan put a curse on a mom that made her unable to see her children if the mother in question wasn't abusive? There's no way to have them do this and remain heroes by any definition of the word.
