I know others have probably posted this same question but I am not sure where to look. I am currently on my third re-read of the entire series to date by both authors. I am starting up Dust of Dreams again (actually my second read of that book) and I just bought Orb, Sceptre Throne. I have never read The Crippled God. My plan is to read OST in between DoD and TCG (yes, I know they are meant to be taken as one giant novel, but I have no problem with cliffhangers and MBotF is my favorite series ever and I don't want it to end. I want to put off reading TCG for as long as possible!) But one thing I wanted to make sure of is that OST has no information that will spoil the ending of TCG. As I understand it, OST continues on directly from TTH. But whether it syncs up with TCG or stands relatively apart from it I don't really know. I am not looking for reviews about whether OST is good or bad, just want to make sure I don't ruin the grand finale of the main series for myself.

You're safe to read it before tCG. As far as I recall, there isn't a single spoiler. OST takes place around the same time as Dust of Dreams (roughly), so you'll be fine.

Yup, I cant recall spoilers to TCG. I dont think its wise decision, rather self tormenting, but...yeah, suffering cleans karma! :p (and I mean that cliffhanger in DoD, not quality of OST)

I cannot recall any spoilers at all.

No. There's one moment where they vaguely allude to something that's going on in TCG and it may be a minor wtd moment for you, but it's not as if this series isn't full of those

It spoils the fact that a crazy big convergence is happening on another continent.

Oh, bollocks, I just spoiled that for you too.
uhm, that should be 'stuff.' My stiff is never nihilistic.

No worries, Defiance, I was pretty sure that would be the case anyway! Thanks for the replies, guys!

The OP hadn't read OSt at the time of posting, so you have just given a massive spoiler. Probably should tag that for new readers stumbling upon this topic.

Nope. Reread the TCG scene, it's explained.
...and if you want to discuss that further, take it elsethread and avoid further spoilers here.
