  1. I can see that, but I’m kind of having trouble with all of them, so I’m not sure how to frame that without clogging the board.
  2. I made a separate post, but it was suggested to discuss here. So... the interludes in this book flummoxed me and I would be curious what others thought of them. I had a hard time connecting most of them to anything relevant overall, but I’m certain I’m missing something.
  3. Good catch! I thought this was a Rothfuss reference.
  4. Likely. Maybe it’s still not Taln. You know, just for kicks.
  5. I somehow forgot that the Unmade came in different sizes and varieties.
  6. I assume he had two, unless Eshonai gave it back to him at some point. which wouldn’t make much sense. The gemstone used to trap the Unmade in Oathbringer was much larger and quite specific (perfectly cut, etc), that these spheres don’t really jive. I’m all sorts of confused on this one. Especially since there are only three (I think?) unaccounted for Unmade by the end of OB.
  7. DISCLAIMER - Please let me know if I’m doing something wrong with this post, and I’ll edit or remove as needed. I was sort of flummoxed by most of the interludes in this one, to be honest. They were extremely short, and I never really got much of an understanding of what was going on in them like I did in the previous books. Anyone have any thoughts? I know they’re often there for world building purposes, but they also often offer Cosmere tidbits or other insights. Aside from the Venli parts, they seemed more detached this time, but I’m sure I’m missing a lot of nuance and hints. would appreciate any of your expert opinions on them. Thanks!
  8. Anyone know why all the subterfuge from Brandon regarding Taln being Taln?
  9. I an sure we have other skills to balance out this horrible flaw.
  10. I spent the first several Vivenna chapters thinking she was a Herald. Even the scene where she wraps cloth around her made no impression on me. it wasn’t until they were in Shadesmar and she basically spelled it out that I got it.
  11. I was extremely proud of myself for recognizing Vivenna and someone from Sel (the Shadesmar fortune teller). Beyond that, I’m pretty awful at recognizing these things and rely on lurking here to impress my friends with my vast Cosmere knowledge.
  12. I have been going back and forth on this in my head. I can’t tell, but it would make sense as a Shard intent.
  13. For some reason, I didn’t realize until right now that the Sibling was not the Nightwatcher. D’oh!
  14. I’m not really sure how much I care to read an Eshonai book at this juncture.
  15. I imagine it may have something to do with letting go in some way. Whether that be letting go of the past, or accepting when he is unable to protect someone, I don’t quite know. It seems that he resisted heavily in part because he maybe felt that saying the words would possibly make them lose Adolin? I’m really not sure.
