he works so hard and saves the world and what does he get? his powers taken away and his memory wiped. everything he's learned along the way, all his growth as a person, the lessons learned through hardship and experience all end up meaning nothing because he goes back to being the person he was at the beginning of the novel! how can they seriously claim this is a happy ending?! I really hate these "everything goes back to normal" stories. why did I just bother reading this novel when the ending made the entire book, other than the prologue, redundant?
