Overall, I thought the book was ok. It seemed to start off with loads of potential but then that kind of dissipated as the book progressed.

I don't know if these questions have been asked before so my apologies if they have been.

My first question is why on earth would Togg care about what happens on Assail? Not one other god seemed to give a damn if previous books are anything to go by.

I guess it could be mentioned in future books but I would have thought that Kilava would have been the Summoner for the Crimson Guard but that doesn't seem to have happened?

I'm confused as to when these books took place. I don't know if this makes any sense but this is what I've worked out (it is probably wrong) -

Stonewielder and Blood and Bone took place concurrently with The Crippled God. Orb Sceptre Throne took place after these two as it showed the continuation of Kiska and Leoman's journey from Stonewielder yet seemed to take place at the same time as Assail as both showed the Visitor seemingly moving further away and there is reference to Fanderay dying after the events of the Crippled God in Assail. Fisher was in both Orb Sceptre Throne and Assail. How was he in both books at the same time?

I'd say the timeline goes something like this: DOD, SW > TCG, OST, BAB > Assail
