While the inhabitants of the Care of Fayle are not as fully-realized in their characterization as the people of Domne, I'd like to include a few quotes about them in this thread as well, which I hope to be able to do next week.

Maybe you should change the title.

Speaking of family moments I also liked the scene where Elega faints in panic when she believes her lover would not help but behave like the hardhearted Alends of old.

Not the same but it showed she does love her family deeply beneath all the intrigue and self serving attitude.

Yes, Elega is an interesting and somewhat complex character. I'm considering contributing more posts and quotes about Elega and her sisters in duchess of malfi's "Mordant's Princesses" thread sometime in the not-too-distant future. That's a thread that I'd like to see revived, for sure!

Oh, I'm not sure about that. I entitled the thread, "Quiss and the other innocents of Mordant" rather than calling it "Quiss and the other innocents of Domne", so I'm sure the Fayle and his people are included in the title's meaning. Smile

In Chapter 36 of A Man Rides Through was wrote:
The day began well. The air was clear and crisp, and the horses moved easily along the increasingly traveled paths. And before noon she and Geraden came upon a village that had nothing wrong with it.

Nothing, that is, except anxiety. When the people of the village heard what Terisa and Geraden had found in Aperyte, they muttered nervously and scanned the woods around their homes and began to talk about leaving.

"Ghouls," a woman pronounced, confirming Terisa's guess. "Don't know what else to call them. Never seen one--but the lord sent men to warn us. Attack at dusk or dawn. Little critters, almost like children. Green and smelly.

"Eat every kind of flesh. That's what the lord's men said."

Geraden scowled as if he were in pain. "That's why the gate was closed," he muttered. "The horses never got out. They were eaten right there in the corral."

Terisa was thinking, They're the ones who did. They escaped into their huts and somehow sealed the doors. And then they were incinerated in their own homes.

Eremis.

She was beginning to understand whey King Joyse had fought for twenty years to strip Alend and Cadwal of Imagers and create the Congery. He wanted to prevent creatures like ghouls from being translated into the world.

Through a haze of nausea and anger, she asked one of the villagers, "What're you going to do?"

"What the lord's men told us." came the reply. "If we heard any rumor of ghouls around here, saw any sign. Get to Romish as fast as we can."

"Good," said Geraden fiercely.

He and Terisa rode on.


Even with simple passages such as this one, Stephen R. Donaldson increased my concern for the people of Mordant, people just trying to get on with their lives, and increased my contempt for the villainous Imagers that were causing all the suffering.
