Oh man thinking about what he's been through I've just realised how great and subtle the ascension of Senlin actually is! Like, he's very slowly but very definitely become a really hoopy frood!

How do you feel about not getting to see what happened to Marya at the "start to the real story" segment?

I'm talking about when Marya goes missing and the story shifts from a couple's trip to the Baths to something much more.

She's just... gone and Senlin has to go on.

Oh right yeah. I think the blurb told me she goes missing so it didn't seem that surprising iirc. I did like how sudden it was though. He's just there by himself with nothing.

Macros I'm hijacking this thread to continue talking about the Books of Babel.

I think I just hit the bit you mentioned elsewhere that was a bit of a shock moment around halfway through The Hod King...

Dang this series is so excellently crafted.
