I too am curious as to what happens to the cloak, but I want to know how Denth got it off him; if it wraps him up as good as the rope almost killed Tonk, then he should be incapacitated for a while, leaving Tonk (if he could take it off) to either get him out or take care of Vivenna.

That knife would have to be insanely sharp to cut a flying rope. A regular knife wouldn't have the force to cut it in mid air. The dueling sword, I could see, but not the knife. The rope would wrap around it (and prolly his hand too). That said, unless it's going to constrict his hand off, everything else that happened could basically remain the same (adding a part where he gets the rope off his hand).

But on another note, if she could tell the cloak to "Grab Denth," how come she didn't just do that to the two pieces of rope, sending one to grab Denth and the other to grab Tonk? Even specifying around the throat or make them unable to move or something like that.

So when someone Nightblood can tempt grabs him, he sucks their breath out, and then kills them. What happens when someone pure draws him (assuming they can get over the nausea)? And what would happen if someone were able to convince Nightblood that he himself is evil?

What if a Returned draws Nightblood? How much breath do they officially have for Nightblood to eat before killing them?

And if Vivenna is to die, why make it happen "off screen," as it were? Her character is important enough that an offscreen death like that (if she died there) would be anticlimactic.

Though I would have suggested El Hueco, in Medellín, Colombia. You can get most anything there... I never did check if you could buy people there... Nevermind...

Seriously, congrats on having a job again. I hate looking.

And so some of the questions do get answered. Very cool. Talk about plot twists. That makes both of the Sisters getting betrayed by the One Person they each thought they could trust (Denth and Havarseth)

Varatridees (Denth) and Tridees are quite similar names for very different people. Or are they really so unconnected?

Although, have we met the Niece yet? Lightsong's Niece? Stennimar might have more significance to us if we'd heard the name before. Was he someone important to the historical plot before? Not that he needs to have a significance, but if Lightsong had heard the name before, from someone, or some writing, or something, it might... Make a difference in the feel... I don't know... A suggestion... One perhaps needing some salt...

I still want to know who the other intruder is.

Just had another thought... Who was the girl in the painting? My guess is that if it isn't the Past (Shashara?), then it's the future – Vivenna, who Nightblood likes, while she hates it. What a wonderful relationship. Now if she were able to draw him without throwing up, she is the likeliest of all to let Nightblood know what evil is. Though it would likely be miserable for her, not to mention traumatic, corrupting, or even lethal to her. Toxic at least. That would mean either dealing with the nausea or losing control of the sword and go on a killing spree. My vote's on the nausea.

So one thing I'm waiting for; when do we get to find out who the Second Intruder is? And what did Vasher find out in those tunnels? That all happened back in chapters 26-27, and I'm just hoping we start seeing those loose ends get tied. I mean, with Vasher left tied up in the Palace, which is obviously available through the tunnels, Why didn't he explore and find the way into the city proper, and use that to rescue Siri instead of entering through the outside, and being more predictable to Denth? Who is the Other Intruder, and are they still somewhere in the tunnels? If the God-King supposedly has a set of master codes to the lifeless, why would his priests need to get them from Lightsong? And if the Priests wanted to interrogate Blushweaver, why'd they just kill her? And if Lightsong was only a scribe, and always getting them (he and Llarimar) into serious trouble, what is it about Lightsong that Llarimar admired, to make him one of the best men he knew?

On another note, in Idris, if the King often visited the Returned there, why wouldn't it be expected for them to use their breath to heal someone else, since that's what the Gods in Hallandren do. I mean, being a Returned isn't a sin to them, just the taking of other's breaths to stay alive. So, if they were sent back by Austre for a reason, it must be to heal someone else. In theory.

Of course, it's entirely possible (and likely) that my questions will be answered in the next few chapters, but that's what I'm thinking right now.

Hah. Now I just have to find stuff I want to write reviews of... Any suggestions there? I know there are reviews of games, both video and tabletop, and movies, and books, but is there an area that is generally lacking in reviews, or should I just write by ear, as it were?

Will it cost a Fell Point per post, or will it just require a certain number of FP to post in a given forum or article?

Meh. I'll be in Wyoming. The cool thing is I'll be performing in 7 Brides there, but yeah.

I gotta admit, I think that's a pretty cool drawing, I like it better than what was used, though I suppose that would have driven away some potential readers.

Collector's Edition!  :P

So much for them being fighters... But why would a scribe know such an odd assortment of skills?

"I like it."

"He likes it! Mikey, he likes it!"


I have to agree, the first is better than the second. Maybe if we had a different view of the Inquisitor and a quote from one of them instead of the Lord Ruler... Like where he's looking straight ahead with one of those scary, creepy, creepy smiles.

I thought he was wearing glasses until I looked closer.

If it is ever made into a game, I would go with the 1st person RPG, but I would love a two player co-op, since those are my favorite anyway. Either Halo style, or LEGO Starwars drop in/drop out play, or a combination of the two; Drop in/drop out where you didn't have to stay so close together. The physics engine that would require would be tricky, and the flying would be insanely hard without a really well thought out interface.

I want to help design it! (even though that would likely be a long time from now)

I don't think it was Tonk talking to Denth. More likely one of the priests still there when Lightsong attacked. It's too bad he didn't know how to use a sword. And I'm assuming that Llarimar is also being held at sword point, but it might help to mention that.

I wonder though, if Lightsong had instincts to know how to sneak, know how to interrogate and investigate, why wouldn't he have instincts on how to best deal with the soldiers? Of course, the encounter is not yet over, so anything could happen. It would be funny though, even if Lightsong's past life knew nothing about fighting, if Blushweaver's past life did, or something like that.

I think that they were torturing her because they wanted command of the Lifeless themselves, which kinda sucks, since now they have Lightsong captive, and he has the rest of the army.

But then, maybe she was sneaking in herself, and was caught... a little out of character, but since we don't know what her past life was, it's possible. More likely that her "contact" in the palace betrayed her, but it's still possible. And I suppose it's proof that Lightsong loves her that he rushed in to help without thinking about the Lifeless, plus, he'd have to search the rooms to find the ones that were his, and those rooms are big; getting from one to the other may have taken too long.

On an earlier note, I am confused as to how the fighting over stopped. In theory, once drawn, once the fighting begins, it wouldn't stop until everyone who wanted it was dead. Interesting that Denth and Tonk didn't come out until after the fighting stopped.

My name is Matthew R Carlin. I am an actor. I graduated from BYU (December 06, BFA in Acting).

I'm a twin from a family of ten kids and I'm interested in just about every aspect of art and performing (writing, acting, directing, choreographing, composing, dancing, painting, designing, conceptualizing, trouble-shooting, editing, eating, impressioning, cooking, dreaming, sleeping, casting, quoting, singing, storytelling, voice-overing, everything), and I was born in California, but my family is in Nevada, right now.

There. I've even updated it.  :P
