Dan Wells / Best line from Mr. Monster [spoilers]
« on: October 07, 2010, 07:14:00 AM »
Just read your book, Dan.  That was really amazing work you did.  Now I feel like going back and rereading the first one.

Anyways, there were a lot of really good lines in the book, so I figured I'd give other fans a chance to talk about which was their favorite.

My absolute favorite is this:
"I beat you," I said. "You've lost."
"And for the..." he coughed, raspy and painful, his voice charred and black. "For the first time in... ten thousand year..." he coughed again. "I feel like I've won."

It took me a second to realize what the demon was talking about here.  At first I wondered if the demon had managed to accomplish some hidden goal.   When it finally hit me, I couldn't stop laughing for about ten minutes.  I can't imagine how bitter it must have to for him to place himself above humanity, to consider himself superior, and yet the more power he gained, the weaker and more pathetic he'd feel, because that's how the people he used his power on would feel around him.  Absolutely freaking beautiful.

Brandon Sanderson / "Unite them" [Way of Kings spoilers]

1.  So, Dalinar's visions keep telling him to "unite them" which Dalinar interprets to mean uniting the Alethi.  We already know that Dalinar misinterpreted the part of the visions about trusting Sadeas, and that the visions likely weren't specifically for him, because the almighty was already dead when he was getting them. 

2.  We know that when Odium/Rayse killed shards in the past (Aona and Skai) he broke up their shards to prevent anyone from holding them to gain power.

Theory:  The "unite them" phrase refers to the pieces of the shard the almighty held, which were likely splintered by Odium when he killed him.  The visions are instructing whoever receives them to unite the fragments of the shard, so that someone can stand full strength against Odium

Brandon Sanderson / Gaz [Way of Kings Spoilers]

So, I finished the book, I can't figure out what happened to Gaz.  Seems like he disappeared sometime after the side-carry snafu, and never showed up again.  Did I miss something?  Are there any hints as to what his ultimate fate was?  And why did he have to pay Lamaril all of that money?

I'll likely do a second reading before long, and look for those answers then, but if anyone knows, I'd be happy if you told me.  Also, if anyone on these forums is going to one of his signings, would you mind asking Brandon Sanderson about this?
