Lostara is fixated on continually sharpening her knife because"...driving a knife through the heart of the man she loved was bound to leave an indelible stain on her soul". (Page 244 of Bantam paperback). Can somebody please remind me of the events leading to this act?
Thank you.

From the end of tBH

Pearl gets stabbed by Apsalar who uses the Paralt arrow that killed Kalam on him (karma), Lostara finds Pearl writhing in agony so she ends his suffering...

It's somewhat amusing since the soldiers think of their dagger as more of a tool of suicide than anything (called that in book 6), so her constant attention and sharpening of her dagger sends a rather.. interesting.. signal.

And daggers. Lots of daggers, the most personal and precious of all weapons - the fighter's last resort. The weapon that, if necessary, would be used to take one's own life in the face of something far worse.

With spelling like this you're lucky you attained a 'B'! :) I like the foreshadowing in the books, it'll be interesting to see who makes it through. Roll on TCG

thats the correct way of spelling defense, depends if your using English or American English,

but admittedly my spelling is awful, as is easily apparent with my barely coherent posts

What makes me laugh is that he pointed out the misspelling-that-wasn't of "defenc(s)e" rather than you using "I'm" instead of "in" to poke fun.

Not that I ever poke fun about things like that. Honest.

He may not have died, necessarily, but he was dying and got stuffed into an Azath last minute. It's up in the air at this point. What a Kalam-ity!
