    Some other minor questions that are left open. Who started the convergence? Was it really planned to coincide with the Whirlwind or was it just a coincidence?

    Convergence is a tricky concept in MBotF. The basic idea is often summed up as "Power draws power". Whenever powerful entities gather, they create sort of an intangible nexus that draws other powerful entities to them. So, your question is kind of hard to answer. Its not exactly true to say that the emergence of the Whirlwind caused the convergence on the Path of Hands or the other way around. It's more likely to assume that both amplified each other.


    What was the Warren that the Shilanda went through and some of the passengers almost ascended (maybe Telann, since it is the Warren of Fire?) and does everybody that come in contact with this fire ascend?

    RAFO :)


    Also, I would like your thoughts on Mallick Rel. Do you believe he was a traitor from the start or did he side with Dom due to Coltaine humiliating him? We have indications for both. Pormqual is acting weird from the start, but Rel warns Coltaine that he would see to his destruction after he is humiliated by him in Hissar. I tend to believe he only cared about himself and that he decided to side with Dom after his clash with Coltaine.

    Well, there is a moment early on in the book where it's revealed that a key figure of the Whirlwind rebellion is a "Jhistal" at Aren.

    Thanks for the reply. Of course, the power draws power thing. I am so stupid, how could I have missed that? As for Mallick Rel, I remember that. But that was months after Coltaine had thrown him out of that first meeting in Hissar (with Bult, Kulp, Duiker and Sormo). Anyway, that's a really trivial matter and it's not really significant.

    Oh, and my question as to Lorn's actions were answered at the very very start of MoI. Man, I should have more faith in Erikson. Posted Image

    Oh, bookdepository has free shipping, I didn't know that and it is at the exact same price as the english version here in Greece (although a different edition, but no matter). Thanks guys...

    Woah,that bad?Ok, then I guess I'll go with the e-book or something, although I'm very traditional in anything that has to do with books (I don't really enjoy audiobooks and I find that e-books kind of tire me). Anyway, it might not be necessary. DG is pretty long after all and I don't always have the time to read for long hours.
  4. In Topic: Dujek/Tyrant question

    Something completely offtopic, but I don't really want to open another thread. So, the books are not even translated in my native language (Greek), so I am reading them in English. The main problem with that is that the books are not very popular here, so they are not always readily available. As a result, I already have House of Chains, but it will probably be some time before my MoI copy comes. So my question is this: Would it be too bad if I read HoC before MoI? Will there be a lot of spoilers? Because as far as I know these books focus on different characters.

    And apologies again for the earlier spoiler. As far as I could discern, that was the first section where Paran learns of the Finnest. So I can only assume that what QB is hinting at about Lorn dropping something off relates to something different, perhaps her 'dropping of'/bringing the Tyrant to Darujistan. Paran probably knew she had some sort of means, or item, to lure him from his barrow to the city. But that is just speculation on my part.

    Don't sweat it man...It's alright, I was pretty close anyway...I am currently like 10 pages from finishing the book. Can't wait for DG.
