They were building up to it for the entire story.
We needed to experience what happened to Hugh. Leave Marit out of it.
But the last thing you need in the final book of a seven-book saga is to introduce some random character, try to make your audience feel for her, and give her point of view more precedence than the other characters who we were already close to.

Loved the dragonlance series, but this last book is 8 bucks for pages. And there's typos and it's a very old series. Not bothering with the other series by these authors since it's price gouging.
