What I want to know is the identity of her grandmother. Context suggest Erra. Roland is her grandfather by adoption. Erra said once that Julie was a child of the steppes. She has a ton of magic. I wonder whether she and/or Hugh is/are  descended from Erra. Maybe one of her children managed to procreate before she killed them. Or maybe Erra is just her grandmother by adoption, though strictly speaking she's Julie's great-aunt by that means. It arguably could be Martha, but the description doesn't fit.

I was thinking that possibly Erra's and Roland's mother had resurrected when they brought her back to her homeland. Roland had been worried about that. Erra makes far more sense.

At the end of Magic Triumphs, didn't Erra and Julie decide that Erra could be Julie's adoptive grandma?

Probably. That sounds right.

Come to think of it, you're right.

I had assumed Erra; but the 'child of the steppes' makes me wonder about her antecedents.

Didn't Erra at one point state that Julie's ancestral people, the kurgan, refused to marry or breed outside of their own people, despite Erra's family's best efforts?

I think so.

Also. The author lords' blog post made me curious what question everyone was asking. Not curious enough to dig through more than a page worth of comments, though.

they were asking about Julie being called Julia.  The page they reference has Barabas call Julie by her full name, Julia.  Basically they're confirming that yes, it is in fact Julie.

I was baffled about that, too. And took a sampling. Some folks really came far away from the wall. And one post after the explanation thanked the AuthorLords for explaining that Julie was the Grandmother involved, this was her Grandchild, and I forget who the others were deemed to be. The next post said "I hope you're kidding".

This scene must be kicking their butts, or else something dire has happened. I am trying valiantly not to pout. I have never needed an installment more than this week. Hope everything is ok with them (not just because of Innkeeper!).

I can imagine it being a scene that just isn't coming out the way they want.

I am feeling impatient, but that's my problem not the Authorlords, who are so kind as to share their creativity with us. I agree - hopefully they're just struggling to get the scene in shape and it's not a matter of some personal emergency.
