Brandon Sanderson / The missing Herald statue. (WoK) *Probably spoilers*
« on: January 21, 2011, 05:23:46 AM »
So I just finished reading The Way of Kings, which I loved, and was going back and reading some of the beginning chapters.  To see if they brought any new meaning to the ending.  And as I was reading through Szeth's assassination of Gavilar I noticed a peculiar sentence that I hadn't seen discussed anywhere yet.  Here it is:

"Szeth brushed by, continuing past a line of statues depicting the Ten Heralds from ancient Vorin theology. Jezerezeh, Ishi, Kelek, Talenelat. He counted off each one, and realized that there were only nine here.  One was conspicuously missing.  Why had Shalash's statue been removed?"

After that the chapter goes on and doesn't mention it again, and as far as I can remember it's never brought up again for the rest of the book.  Does anyone here know if it IS mentioned or if it's not, does anyone have any ideas about why Shalash's statue is missing?
