Hey all

So i have made good progess on the DHG re-read and feeling more positive about the reading and life in general

(SPOILERS BELOW)

So when Coltaine is outside Aren battling away and Duiker and co are already inside the city gates; im a bit confused, when Squint shoots Coltaine, is Coltaine on a cross? I was reading the chapter fast so i could finish before my commute ended this morning

Or was he just fighting/got shot and died/ the crows come down and take his physical body away

T'anks

The crows shook the air with their eerie cries and plunged down toward the sagging figure on the cross, sweeping over the warriors crowding the slopes. The sorcery that battered at them was shunted aside, scatter by whatever force --- Coltaine's soul? -- now rose to join the birds.


Feel free to ask for recommendations. It is quite common. If you search the forum, you will find several threads of that type.

Yah, there's a whole Other Literature subforum that is consistently active.

Korbolo Dom and Kamist Reloe's troops overwhelmed Coltaine and crucified him in plain view of the people of Aren. At the time when Squint put him out of his misery, Coltaine was indeed nailed to a cross.
