Wert shared the following tidbits from reading the e-ARC:

Quote
Yes, I have read the ending. No, I won't tell you what happens. Well, only that if Bakker never writes the final series, there may be riots. Very small riots, but riots nonetheless. Also, pretty sure I have no idea whatsoever what the final duology will be called.

And then this (includes a WoT spoiler):

Hmm, very interesting. I was rather split on how much closure we'd get in TUC, but this nudges me toward the "less than I was hoping for" arena, though it really depends on the details. For me its more a thing of getting big questions answered -- which clearly we will -- though I wonder if I'm expecting too much from what is, really, the mid-point of the series. I would imagine (hope) that, closure-wise, we get something at least on par with TTT: satisfying character arc conclusions, but with the over-arcing narrative remaining unrealized (kinda has to be, otherwise there'd be no point in a third series).

Dovetailing that with the spolier quote:

Another tidbit from Wert:

Quote
The Unholy Consult opens with a Black Sabbath quote, which is oddly appropriate.

Something from War Pigs is my best guess.
