Pwerhaps the chorae was not special so much as it signalled her revelation and it was she foresweared sorcery, she could do this to any chorae.

My exact feelings. There was nothing special about the chorale, Mimara is/who is special. It could've been any chorale.

There are pieces throught TAE where she talks about the chorae, but especially when it first happens. I can't recall if she refers to 'the chorae' specifically or Chorae generally as truly tears of god (if you could only see what I see, Akka! - something like that).

I'd hesitate to call Malazan similar to TSA on almost any metric. Loved the series, don't get me wrong, but other than both of them being fantasy war novels I'd say they are quite dissimilar, tbh. Plenty disagree though :)

Wow, an Old Name responding!!!  Thanks, Wilshire.  Dora Vee, I have never been able to get into the Malazan.  I should try again.

One of the most different and amazing things I have ever read.  It didn't go the way I wanted the story to go, but I thought it was perfect.  I did not let that color my feelings on the book.  I am Team Kellhus all the way and I wanted a win for him; obviously not what happened.  Bakker books read like scripture and tell me more about me as a person than any other thing I have read. I can't wait for more.  It transcends reading because of how he writes; how can you not want more of this?  ASOIAF, Kingkiller Chronicles, Dresden, The Iron Druid, and even Dragonlance and that old stuff doesn't come close to what Bakker has done with his books and world.  Time spent rereading, lurking on here and researching related topics to *know*.  That is amazing.  The only thing that comes close is Richard Kadrey or Wily Vlautin; check them out- good thinking man writing.

Actually, Malazan comes pretty close too.

That's a member here, thus why there wasn't a link.

You can see his profile here and send him a PM if you'd like. 
This was probably the post being referenced :). Some other links in that thread from years ago that might still be click-able.

Definitely agree with the sentiment SalvatorDunyain, and thanks for sharing. I think that's probably a well-shared feeling around here - that the stories here go beyond mere fantasy writing and seem to encourage some inward reflection in a way that appear totally unique to the genre.

Those t-shirts that Redditor made are awesome.  What is the link for Thing Called Sarcellus?  It wasn't a hyper link in the post.  I have a few ideas and I would like to see how hard this is to do.  Im not interested in making money; i just want to rock and support my fav books.  Also, if we buy shirts from that guy with the 3 designs do you think Bakker would get upset?  Just wondering....
