First thing I thought, as Tanith showed up on that island, was Polyjuice.
Second thing was that that was a fairly stupid security question. Or, at least, not paranoid enough :).
But then, even if you continued dropping sort-of-hints about her measured speaking etc, nicely hiding them by Tobias' own explanations, you got me believing it's her, mostly because all the details about coals and such.
That would be mainly because you completely omitted what Cal's cooperation looked like, so the consequent events felt as a surprise to me, just as for the characters. And that (getting to the point, yay!) is one of the reasons I dig this story so much, because you allways do that, because the story is not obvious even to a piercing eye.

I should review the chapter, too, seeing I am reviewing the chapter. The chapter was amazing! I can feel myself jumping internally with the action. I'm selecting 9/10 mostly only because of my inexplicable avoidance of boundary values :).

(A bit chaotic, but I'm going to excuse myself, as this is my very first review after reading stories here for a few years.)

Author's Response: I'm so happy people are still reading this series, much less reviewing it. So thank you for that!

The polyjuice conclusion was never an illogical one to reach. It was a tricky line to walk, between showing what happened to Cal and Tanith and at the same time having the reader as in-the-dark as Tobias (as I regretted keeping as much of Cal's story in Shade, his writing to his father, as off-screen as I did. It made for a good reveal but it meant we missed a lot of what happened in his head). I had hoped that people would at least be uncertain, rather than going "J'accuse!" at their screens (or maybe it's just me who does that as a reader).

This chapter was a satisfying one to write, considering how much it resolved, especially Gabe's vision. I'm glad it paid off for a reader. I totally understand going for a 9. If you give a 10 then if something's better than this, how can you mark it appropriately!

Thanks a whole bunch for reviewing!
