  1. i paid 16$ on amazon for the hardcover
  2. Blurb for the new book doesn't even get the name of the character right in it
  3. Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan Farseer trilogy Robin Hobb Mistborn trilogy Brandon Sanderson Stoemlight archive Brandon sanderson
  4. So in the grand scheme of things his entire plot was pointless besides some nonman world building. That's kinda what I figured What ever happened to kelhus' grandson at the end of TGO? Just running around somewhere to be used in the next series?
  5. Finished the book yesterday and just like how I felt with great ordeal. I like the "story" but have no idea with what is going on because of the way he writes. Only reason I have even an understanding of what happened in this series is werts fantastic recap and these forum threads I think if there is another series I'll just wait for wert to recap it again. I do have a question. What was the purpose of sorweel exactly? From my understanding he is tasked by a god to kill kelhus and is immune to being unmasked by kelhus. He is sent with Sera and serwa and moenghus have sex to make sorweel jealous so he can do something for Sereally after they escape ishterberinth Was his purpose to fall in love with serwa so that serwa has a "darkness" like kelhus (esement)? Then kelmomas slits his throat as kelhus was approaching sorweel (was sorweel actually in the position to kill kelhus at that point because from what I gathered he had truly become a believer king at that point?) And then when sorweel gets his throat cut it does something to serwa that allows her to be the person she needs to be to kill the dragon? Or am I just completely wrong
  6. Bought a house March 2016. Found the place on Zillow took my realtor to it and then made offer same day. Fairly easy process. The nerve racking part for me is the appraisal since I was buying a flipped house. Lucky for me the offer the accepted from me turned out to be 15k less than the appraised value.
  7. because you have chosen to be a death chooser, and have not risen to embrace life
  8. no you're right
  9. Its honestly baffling how incompetent democrats are. They fight tooth and nail to get 60 votes to pass healthcare. And republicans are able to dismantle it with 50 (plus pence). Whenever democrats do get in full power again (if ever) they would be stupid (which they are) to not just nuke legislative filibuster for the 2 years they knoe tjey will have absolute majority, do whatever it is they want and if they lose in the midterms just change it back to 60.
  10. He just cant stop himself from leaking to the world for covfefe's sake
  11. I loved TTM. RWC i liked a lot more on my second read through. I never understood anyones hate on any od the fitz books. They are amazing. And i had tears in my eyes the entire last 10% od the book. Probably earlier as fitz was telling the fool to leave him as he was trapped. The tears dtarted there and didnt stop until i finished. I was so hoping he got to end up with Bee at the end.
  12. I was crying my eyes out the entire last 10% of the book. Such an emotional wreck this book made me. Perfect way to end the book
  13. New thread definitely. I live in California, at 4pm I de registered my kindle from my amazon account, registered my brothers account to my kindle (he lives in the UK), purchased Assassin's Fate, downloaded it to my kindle, and then re registered the kindle back to my account. can't wait to dig in!
  14. So I'll be honest. I feel like I love the story of the series.. but i don't think i have the patience, knowledge or understanding to actually understand what the hell is going on and basically start skimming the book because I don't really get what was happening in the last book. Maybe it Is because I sped through the Aspect-Emperor series in less than a month, but I really skimmed the 3rd book. What really helped me understand what was even going on in the series was thanks to Werts multi part breakdown of the back story. I was really getting thrown during the White Luck Warrior, especially with all the nonmen stuff, and as I was reading the great ordeal I felt like i knew even less of what was going on and I honestly just skimmed to get to t the highlights of anything exciting. It really got bad in the second half of this book, and to be honest, I don't think I have the energy to go back to try and re read it. So if someone can just clarify/summarize a few things for me I would be extremely grateful 1) the survivor kills himself after taking quirri because he realizes that his entire belief structure as dunyain was was wrong? 2) the kid with the survivor was his own kid so he is Kelhus grandson then? and could potentially be the one prophecized? 3) The Great Ordeal was becoming more and more inhuman as they continued to eat the Sranc. Kelhus wanted this to happen so that the Ordeal can experience great loss so that they have something to truly fight for, which is their salvation? 4) The Horde was completely wiped out by the Ordeal, but the Ordeal was abandoned by Kelhus and now is on its own? that was it? 5) The Sorweel stuff. I honestly have no idea what happened to him after he put the helmet on that was the soul of a nonman. (i really got confused with this storyline in the middle of white luck.. am i right in thinking that Cleric was the nonman king of the Mansion that Serwa, Moenghus and Sorweel were traded to? From my understanding of this storyline, Sorweel put on the helmet becomes semi possessed, walks down into the depths of the Cave to find the father of one of the only sane Nonmen.. and said father was a huge mythical hero of the big nonman war against the inchoroi so that they can go against the semi erratic leader of the nonmen mansion who had allied himself with the Consult... because the Consult for revenge against man and salvation (no idea?) and then i have no idea happend after 6) Kelmomas kills Theli by getting the assassin to kill her. Somehow the Cisharauam gets injured so the Fanim can't destroy the walls, but then that one lady somehow gets something to happen that gets the walls destroyed and Esemente thinks they're all going to die but then Kelhus shows up and kills the lady, Fanayel, and then spares the Zeum ambassador who was with them for reasons? I think the Akka storyline was by far the easiest one for me to follow.... I think
  15. Just bought both books because of your reviews. can't wait to dive in
