I did too, shit happens.

P.S. It's got spoilers.  Stuff you might have figured, might not.

I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

My warnings weren't for nothing :P!

EDIT: As SR would say, some pollution begs the knife, not the cloth.

I've read the first set of paragraphs up till the spoiler warning. A voice in my head is going, you'll break and read the rest, just do it now, no point prolonging the fight lol.

At Westeros, they were complaining about a certain cliffhanger in TGO in Momemn, well Pats review puts an end to any speculation on the matter.
“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,

This is why making a policy about spoilers is laughable. :)

So SO glad that Lord-and-Profit has made it into the arc blurb, meaning it made it into the final book.

Super job Overlook, per usual.

Lol, right?

I'm mostly bothered by the various confirmations that certain characters will interact. I'm actually excited for the POV mentioned, though I do think it worth to warn of it as a spoiler.

Someone on reddit claimed MG's hype contained spoilers - there are as many definitions of what constitutes spoilers as there are people ;).

It's fixed on the jacket of the eBay ARC sold.

Huzzah!

Read it... I'd say spoilers. Telling us what storylines collide is a going a bit far, and reading in between the lines there seems to be more there than I think many would appreciate.
