I am most excited to see what it says about Hemalurgy. . . those will be the first pages I read.  I have NO will power. ha ha.

I will either have to finish the book the same day . . . or not get on TWG until I am finished, because I'm SURE I'd walk right over a couple hundred spoilers.

I would not recommend looking at it. I don't know what's going to be in it, though.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Well, my only thought is that since it is the final book in the series, it would be relatively complete.

It seems such a waste to go for spoilers when you have the story right there in front of you. That's just...wrong.

That's what I'm sayin', man. It takes willpower!  Willpower that months of waiting will pretty much erode!

Maybe I'll ask the clerk at Walden's to just cut out the back pages for me, then buy a new copy once I'm done. ha ha.

I was just going to suggest that. Do what you must! This is not a book you want to spoil, if ever there was. (Not that I guarantee the Ars Arcanum will spoil anything, mind, since I haven't seen it.)

Well, don't forget that I said I'm positive some people are going to hate Brandon for the ending.

Ookla where'd you say that?  I've been all over this place (not posting obviously) and haven't seen it.

I think it's actually in this topic, way, way earlier. Of course, I could be wrong on that one, but that's where I seem to remember it.

I definitely recall that Ookla said this before, however.
