  1. Welp, I finished the book. To start, if you want to simply write, “I hate Moash because he killed Teft” I reluctantly have to agree. I may have thrown my book across the room and stalked around my house while my partner asked what was wrong yesterday. However… After taking some time, I still hope Moash makes the turn to the side of good. If Kaladin forgave Moash for killing Teft, can you imagine how powerful that would be? Anyways, I still saw moments. As soon as Navani + the Sibling filled the tower with their light, Moash starts regretting stuff. He is controlled y’all, at least to an extent. That doesn’t free him of guilt. He would have to do some major work, and would need to start actively resisting Odium’s control to deserve redemption. I feel saddened still by Moash’s story. I think he still deserves pity, but I do understand the hate a bit more now. Next up, we started discussing Taragavian so lets include that. He became Odium and y’all read…that book, and still…understand him. Really? Seriously? How? Again, he is worse than Moash. Like…so much worse. He ended the book by already thinking about cleansing worlds. He is straight up, the closest thing to actual evil in these books. I seriously can’t understand how y’all can look at an ordinary broken man who has made the wrong choices and hate him more than…like the closest manifestation to the devil in our story. Am I missing something? A note : Dalinar is right. Taragavian is wrong. Taragavian is a monster. An actual monster. Oh and to those of you who think it, Taragavian had choices. He isn’t all knowing. He is arrogant and petty, he reminds me of Light in Death Note if anyone had read/watched that. When I see people say Taragavian did his best or that he had to do what he did, that frightens me. He didn’t y’all. He is wrong. His way is wrong. The deaths he caused were not unavoidable. He caused them. He has in fact now been proven wrong. Dalinar was on his way to defeating Rayse EVEN WITH Taragavian helping Rayse. Taragavian’s betrayal only caused more death and prevented nothing. He is responsible for MORE DEATH not less. Just real quick, a note in support of my theory that Moash at some point will turn good : 1. Venli. She went as about dark as one can go in our storyline, betraying her own people and giving into Odium. She was just so selfish. Yet, she started making the right decisions and was able to return to the side of good. 2. Lady Leshwi. An actual immortal fused was able to change sides. Again, lends credence to the potential for Moash’s turn. 3. Rabonial. She was so close. So very close to also making the turn. You know, a side note, I wanted her to bond the Sibling WITH Navani. I thought that was a possibility of where the story might go, her death was still beautiful…but I think it could have been more beautiful if Navani and her had formed a more permanent bond toward a compromise and peace. I know the series is 10 books long, and I am not sure that ending would have worked…but…it was so close. I believe, by the way, that no one is beyond redemption. Even Taragavian, who I hate. An arrogant man, who has somehow apparantly convinced a bunch of people that being a brutal tyrant is the only way to succeed. It’s not. Your wrong. He’s wrong. Sorry, I won’t budge on this one moderators. It’s against my absolute moral compass. Killing and causing wars because you think you are helping is just an excuse tyrants and monsters use. It wasn’t his only choice. He even midly realized on his “stupid” days he was able to think morally. Taragavian on his smart days, was essentially without empathy or morals, and that is wrong. Absolutely and completely wrong.
