So the consensus is that the "missing" action scenes in "To Brave the Storm" are the editors fault? I find it hard to believe that ANY editor would eliminate a compelling action scene to reduce a book's length.
Welcome to market realities. If the publisher's accounting department thinks that they book will only be profitable (based on the known production costs & the sales figures for earlier books in the series) if it's under a certain length and thus price to print/ship, then the editor needs to keep it under that length or the book won't get published.
