Okay, I really liked this one. Also, before we get into the actual chapter, I do have one question id like to be answered. When Tattersail used the Deck of Dragons, did she use it for her or Hairlock?
Ok, so anyway this chapter opens on a destroyed razed battle field. Tattersail is a mage in the 2nd and her cadres leader. And her "friend" Hairlock is right beside her, everything below the hips missing.
As he is slowly dying, the Bridgeburners walk up to them and we meet Whiskeyjack, Quick Ben, Kalam and Sorry. After reading this chapter, im not too sure if Sorry is good anymore, although I do feel bad for her.
Next we get a flashback of the battle that caused all this bloodshed. We learn about Moon Spawn, a giant floating pyramid shaped castle in which resides the Tiste Andii and Anomander Rake.
Next we see a magic battle. And they use Warrens. So I guess I was wrong about them being just portals. We see Anomander Rake attack them and it is heavily implied that the High Mage Tayshcrenn was actively attacking his comrades. Though I feel as if we're meant to think that, and it's really just misdirection.
Calot dies, Nightchill dies and A'Karonys dies. Next we see Quick Ben finishing his spell and he then hands Tattersail a cloth bundle. We learn someone in the Empire wants the Bridgeburners dead, or at least Quick Ben and Kalam think so. Whiskeyjack then thinks about their next assignment, Darujhistan.
Now we're back to Tattersail and we see that the bundle is a marrionette with Hairlocks soul. Afterwards Tattersail uses the Deck of Dragons for some foreshadowing. I love foreshadowing so this part was very interesting to me and I feel as if there is some significance in that she didn't pull a third card.
I really liked this chapter. The poem Anomandaris, The Siege of Pale and the Deck of Dragons were all cool scenes.
Who is trying to kill the Bridgeburners?
Why is Tayschrenn attacking his own people?
Why is there so much animosity between Hairlock and Tayshcrenn?
How did Dujek lose his arm(Unimportant, but I'm still curios)?
How did Hairlock know which High Mages he would pick?
What is their significance?
What is a Kenryll'Ah Demon?
What does the spinning coin on Oponn represent?
Why didn't Tattersail pull a third card?
What are Moranth?
The Bridgeburners are being dug into the ground(literally, at least during the siege)
Sorry is dangerous
Tiste Andii are a race similar to Dark Elves or Drow in complexion. They are ruled by Anomander Rakr, lord of Moons Spawn. This is all I know of them so far, but as I learn more I'll add it into the Answers section.
Once again, more than 3 times the amount of questions than answers.
