This one was slooooooooow. Much slower going than Reaper's Gale, I found. I enjoyed it, but it didn't have me reading with my nose to the page until the final act, and then HOLY HELL WHAT DID I JUST READ? Laughing

Question: what the hell did Hood do to Dassem??

Killed his daughter. Dassem used to be his main man. Knight, I think. It's been spoken of a few times.

Re the spoilered bit, Av- yes. Yes indeed.

I also loved the conclusion to Nimander's storyline, although the journey was a drag at points. They're not a cheery bunch. Laughing

And Spoiler:
Itkovian remains awesome. So glad he was able to triumph once again


Another question: what the hell was Humble Measure up to? Something to do with the Seguleh bodies under K'rul's Bar? That whole plot of his confused me.

Earlier in the series, you see her body in an Azath house (maybe the...Deadhouse, nyuk-nyuk-nyuk!)... at the same time, I don't know if she is truly dead, why Hood did what he did, etc. Though Dassem definitely believes his daughter is dead.

Yes, I remember that now! Also recall someone mentioning it in a discussion about the last Chaining. Man, I can see how you get these books better after a re-read!

Back to Toll the Hounds, as always Im picking up on things that I never caught before. I had forgotten Rallicks conversation with Raest near the beginning , it gives some early insight into Vorcans character, and I had never noticed that the carriages that Gruntle and his dead guards were escorting were loaded with that drink produced by the Dying God.

Or two. Wink

In fact, the more often I read them, the better they get.

LOL

Mine especially.

But I was thinking of the fact that there is always some connection that I missed the time before.

As mentioned, busy rereading this, and for the first time I've noticed it's not exactly one of the best books.

Momentous events occur, but that doesn't make the book good.

Also, I've come to the conclusion that all the Eriskson books are unutterably depressing. Very Happy
