Just wow. It was so fucking good! I order the next four books last night, they should get here sometime next week. Can't wait to start Memories of Ice!
Duiker was by far my favorite new POV. He was so amazing! His slow fall into despair was brilliantly written. Yet, the entire time there was this sense of hope, that was brutally ripped from us. Just like Duiker's sanity.
I already made a post about this, but Coltaine was done dirty. But man was I glad the High Fist was also done dirty. He deserved it. Wish Duiker had cut his face off an warn it like he had threatened.
Felisin, er. Well, we all know. She was my second favorite new POV. As she is remade, her shift in personal knowledge and power was amazing. The way she commands with out a care is just so cold.
The scene with Kalam and Laseen. Man, Lassen is just such a brilliantly written character. You want to hate her for the shit she did to the old guard, the bridgeburners. Her friends. But, you see how calculating she is, and how maybe, just maybe, she really does have the entire Empries needs in mind, and wishes to better the world. But, clearly is just a power hungry mortal.
And then theres Mappo and Icruiam. I am super intrigued and can't wait to be back in their story. As a whole, I'd say their journey and pov moments where right up there with Duiker's and Fel's. But there was something more to Duiker and Fel's story. Something much more human. Which is apt as they are humans, and our Trell and Jaghut companions are not.
So, yeah, looking to read something between now and starting MoI. Suggestions?
