So, there could be a TV show coming. I need to read these books soon.
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”

Just got book and it's a pretty short one, Don't you think?
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

I don't know that I'd call 400 pages short, but that's not particularly long either.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasûrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

H, my man, so why haven't we discussed anything here? Huh? Very good book, imo, with some details that didn't make some sense. Like why wasn't Essa confronted by any of the stone eaters in the finale, didn't make much sense on some levels as many wanted an end. Overall, I enjoyed it though. I'll tell you when authors are pushed to make publishing dates you do see a dip in quality.

Yeah, I felt like a bit of the ending didn't really make too much sense, like the Stone Eaters leaving them alone, but honestly by the end, I was a bit checked out of the "now" storyline.  I think the past story of who Hoa was and what happened to the moon in the first place was more interesting.
