I just finished my first read of The Bonehunters .The series just gets better with each book.As always the last 1/3rd of the book was breathtaking.Here are some questions. (If there are spoilers please comment RAFO) :
1. Has Dassem Ultor ascended to become Dessembrae (The Lord of Tears) ? I think it is mentioned somewhere in TB but not sure.
2. There an ascendent mentioned in the glossary-Grizzin Farl. He doesn't have any role in TB. Do we get to see him in the following books ?
3. How is Icarium so powerful ? It takes an primitive spirit goddess (I think that is what Eres'al is) to stop him from slaughtering everyone who comes across his path.
4. Are all warrens physical worlds like Kurald Emurlahn or the Warren of Shadow where Shadowthrone lives ? Both are same btw.
5. What should I read next - TRoTCG or RG ?

Some afterthoughts :
1. Cotillion is a badass. He is one of my favourite character along with Karsa,Paran and Apsalar .
2. I am really excited to know more about Traveller. I think I will like him.

Yes.

And RAFO.

His Warren is a combo of Jaghut and Chaos, driven by pure insanity and rage.

No, and no they aren't the same. Meanas was a chunk of KE once but it's spun off and has its own aspect. Also, RAFO.

Order of events would be RG then RCG then TtH.
...and that assumes you’ve read NoK. Otherwise read that next.

ZUMA: It means let's dive in, dude!
PUST: What? What is a dude? WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?????

1. It's presumed so. You have to read Toll the Hounds to get clarity, so RAFO.
2. Only another throw away mention. You need to read Kharkanas to get information, so RAFO.
3. Icarium history is still mostly unrevealed and hints scattered across various books, so RAFO.
4. Most elder warrens are (excepting Chaos I think), Kurald Galain, Omtose Phellack, Arkhast Korvalain etc have physical worlds. Some ancient warrens like Liosan, Imperial, Tellann etc will have physical realms. It's a very complex structure.
5. What Abyss said.

The character I really want to know more and very interested in is Edgewalker!
