  1. Oldium seems far more capable than Rayse was. I think this was simply due to the fact his personality has been mostly eroded by the shards intent. I think Oldium will chose El? L? (I’m an audiobook listener) as their champion against Dalinar. Im a little disappointed that Kal won’t be champion but I think he may end up replacing Honor/Tanavast in the end. He’s already got a cult and no significant other (RIP Jasnah shippers) and I think he’s the personification of Honor by the end of this book.
  2. I think Thaidakar is Kelsier. What makes me think this is the fact: When Shallan breaks from the Ghostbloods she mentions Wit also calls him the 'Lord of Scars' The fact Wit mentioned he’d met him on other worlds Wit said he'd go back to his planet and slap him around again (Their tussle at the Well of Ascension)... Iyatil being from Scadrial, the south specifically, where Kelsier is worshipped and this may have been passed on to Mraize Kelsier couldn't visit Roshar because in person because Rosharns are too far beneath his level to be worthy of more he is a cognative shadow bound to Scadrial. When we last left Kelsier he was consumed by the need to prepare his world against other threats from the Cosmere. I also think he was mentally damaged during the time of his death, he never seemed quite right after. I remember a WOB where Brandon said if Kelsier joined the Ghostbloods he’d be the leader within two years. I think this was a little tongue in cheek comment. The guys a master schemer. I have just finished the book and I am a little shaken by all that happens so this isn’t exactly a full on dissection of facts and quotes like others post so I apologize.
  3. I have been where you are. I have a few recommendations for you, although these suggestions are generally a little darker than Sandersons work these are some of the best fantasy and UF novels I have experienced. If even 1 series fills a small part of you book deprression I suggest trying the rest out too Dark Fantasy 1. First Law by Joe Abercrombie (Trilogy - 3 Stand alones that progress the story - and a sequel trilogy) 2. Lightbringer by Brent Weeks - (5 Books) 3. Malazan the Book of the Fallen (10 Books) 4. Shadow of the Conqueror by Shad M Brooks (1 Book so far) 5. Night Angel by Brent Weeks - (Trilogy) 6. Kings Dark Tidings by Kel Kade (4 Books so far) 7. Saga of the Redeemed by Auston Habershaw (4 Books) (Not quite Dark Fantasy) 8. The Drenai Saga by David Gemmall Urban Fantasy 1. Graveyard Shift by Michael F Haspil (Stand Alone) 2. Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews (10 Books) 3. Sentinels of Creation by by Robert W. Ross (5 Books) 4. ONSET by Glynn Stewart (4 Books)
  4. I have just come off a Malazan Book of The Fallen reread and I am halfway through Joe Abercrombies First Law series reread.
  5. I don't want to be a downer but Lift drives me insane. I don't find her goofy act cute at all. I find her quite irritating. Some of the interlude characters were a little dull but there are some interlude characters who are incredibly interesting, so it doesn't balance out so to speak but makes reading the interludes a positive experience. I got a little irritated at all the Bridge 4 characters getting their little 'breathing in stormlight for the first time' and there 'you got this bro' moments. But on a reread I really enjoyed them. I think the 1st time I was just really eager to follow the story and see what happens. On the second reread I could fully appreciate the character building scenes.
  6. Welcome and walk in the light. I swear I have spent more time reading the WOB's than I have the actual books. I have spent a lot of time reading those. No idea if you have dabbled in https://wob.coppermind.net/ yet but it is a rabbit hole full of tidbits and extra info on behind the scenes and characters you should definitely check it out. Be careful of spoilers. Hail Shaitan.
  7. I've been tempted to check this out but Diskworld is... well.... Huge.
  8. Deadhouse Gates (Malazan Book of the Fallen) by Steven Erikson I haven't been so blown away since Way of Kings.
  9. I've lurked upon this site for years and KalNah is still being debated and not changed XD It goes a little something like this..
  10. Outside the cosmere: The phrase "carrot and stick" is a metaphor for the use of a combination of reward and punishment to induce a desired behaviour. -Wiki Inside the cosmere: The phrase "Stick and The Stick" is a metaphor for the use of a combination of reward and/or divine blessing from a godlike being to induce a desired behaviour. -Church of The Stick
  11. Well I can't turn down such a polite and flattering invitation First chance I get I will take a look
  12. I think Kaladin definitely betrayed Dalinars trust when he was plotting to kill the king but in the end he bailed and recommitted to his oaths and saved him in the end, I can’t really see Dalinar holding it against him tbh. It would be hypocritical considering what he wanted to do to Gav Moash just doubles down on his betrayals and they seem to be compounding. I had a little sympathy for him after book 2 but it was pretty much squandered after Oathbringer. The guys a douche canoe.
  13. Me too. Soooo bad XD
  14. Might be a typo... Might be a pun. Whose to say...
  15. I cry often. And I cry well.
