  1. Lux

    Can’t stand the tension.... I’m to where Paige just unmasked herself to them in Lux. She betrays them doesn’t she?
  2. So I’m on my re-read and just going to keep track of a few thoughts I’m having. 1. Is Adolin going to try and find a reason to stay in Shadesmar so he can work closer with Maya’s deadeye form? Or is he going to come back to the PR and notice another difference in her behavior there? 2. If the 4th ideal gives plate what does the 5th ideal do? My current abs only guess would be something to do with soulcasters. This would be a good explanation for why they’re so much more rare than other shards. thoughts?
  3. I like this theory and was thinking it myself. Gavinor certainly provides drama. A Singer child would probably be easier for Toad to use for the purpose willingly. Wasn’t there a WoB about how long the gap is between book 5 and 6? I think I remember something about 30 years... which would put Dalinar in his 80’s... a ripe time for natural causes to creep up on him if they can find a way to claim the fight lasts that long.
  4. It does, sadly, seem like Dalinar winning isn’t an option. Gah book 5 may be packed with tragedy
  5. Argent says Invention=Cybertron confirmed lol.
  6. I listen to audio books at work lol. Perk of not having anything to do with customer service or the public
  7. Please let us know if yours actually shows up when it said it would... that way if it doesn’t I’m not refreshing my stuff repeatedly for no reason lol.
  8. My audible pre-order confirmation just says “less than 1 day”... I like yours better lol.
  9. I believe previous books were released at midnight... and the counter linked above corroborates that.
  10. So I just re-read the audible description and noticed something. It says something along the lines of “the enemy prepares a bold new plan. The following arms race will challenge the core beliefs of the Radiants and possibly reveal information about the ancient tower.” now at first I didn’t think anything until we knew the Singers are preparing an assault on Urithiru. But if there’s going to be an arms race after their plan... or caused by their plan, it makes me feel like that assault may come much earlier in the book than I would have expected. Maybe I’m digging too deep but this really surprised me.
  11. I have been thinking that Formless might possibly be the “real” Shallan. My reasoning for this is that she is scared of Formless and obviously scared to confront whatever caused her DID to start. Two fears that she doesn’t realize are one and the same has a nice symmetry from a story telling perspective. And there’s nothing in this theory to rule out that Formless is also a child... maybe the Shallan that was abandoned at the time of the trauma? Which would obviously still be a child. This also opens up the possibility that Shallan isn’t scared of Formless because it’s evil or another personality to contend with... but she could be scared of Formless because Formless is a wounded, scared and powerless child and returning to that... well who wouldn’t be terrified. These theories are definitely not mutually exclusive.
  12. Jasnah’s travels with Hoid... though that might be covered in the flashbacks of book 10. I’d be very interested to hear those conversations.
  13. I finished Dawnshard this weekend but there’s no way I’m going to be able to finish the last 1.5 books in the Spellmonger series before Tuesday... but SA definitely gets priority lol. I will have to take a break from Mancour and finish that series after RoW.
  14. 1. Odium putting T in a better state of mind consistently now? He definitely seems to have changed. 2. adolin wanting to see Maya in Shadesmar... too see if anything has changed since her summoning time has decreased? Very interested to see. 3. Super excited to see whatever Stoneward we get. I fully expect this to be a minor character but I’m still excited by this. 4. Navani caught that Shallan had an ulterior motive lol. 5. Jasnah and Dalinar playing right into Raboniel’s plan by leaving Urithiru. Good thing Navani will still be home. Dammit this next week cannot pass fast enough.
  15. My first reaction is the K will be for knights... but this brings about the phonetic vs spelling debate. So I don’t really know. King of Worlds? Knights of Wisdom? I can’t think of anything that sounds suitably epic lol.
  16. I think Gavilar’s spheres contain the souls of Singers. Maybe Fused. For some reason I cannot specify I ascribe a size requirement to hold an Unmade. Like the King’s Drop or the ones mentioned in Shadesmar held by the money exchangers. Basically Gavilar’s spheres seem underwhelming to contain Unmade. But both instances are extremely interesting to me.
  17. I think both cases will definitely be resolved in this book. I may be wrong... but I would guess most individual story lines will be tied up to allow the 5th book to more easily focus on the larger story in a more traditional sense of story telling. I will also say it’s entirely possible Brandon can blend these issues better than I can see a way to imagine.
  18. Hoid would own all. Raoden would be tough. Susebron. Dalinar. Vasher. Marsh. These top my list of people fighting with investiture. Maybe Jasnah. unpowered fighting... Adolin, Szeth, Wax (maybe put an asterisk by him)... having a harder time with this list. Possibly Rock?
  19. Has there been any indication of the length of Dawnshard? I’m hesitant just to assume it’s the same length as Edgedancer.
  20. Ok. I think I’m starting to get a better grasp of what he was saying. He’s just tweaking the ore-existing name due to his continued education basically.
  21. I’ve seen several people in here discussing Zahel’s classifications, such as type ones... I re-read Warbreaker not long ago and if iirc the wording there was “type _ awakened entity”... whereas in this chapter he says “type _ invested entity... my question about this is does the distinction make a direct comparison impractical? At a glance I would posit these are two separate lists and he just used similar language... naming apparitions of two different types of investiture or beings similarly can still be comparing apples and oranges. I guess I’m saying all this because it seems people are trying to fit things from SA into a package from WB and it just doesn’t fit exactly right to me.
  22. Torn between Bands of Mourning, Way of Kings and Oathbringer. Gotta think on this.
  23. damnation... math is brutal.
  24. I would have to say the most obvious answer is Venli or her sister. More likely Venli. But obvious isn’t always true... obviously. lol.
