  1. Question, are the wands disposable (meaning that once they run out of magical charge they are useless?)? Or can they be recharged and they don’t need to be disposed of or recycled?

  2. Can you add the union kingdom to the glossary? I know the meaning is quite obvious, but the term appeared suddenly in the novel without any explanation. Also, the fact that the king of ignitia is king of the union kingdom, it was treated as obvious from the beginning though it was never clearly stated.
