    Is there a thread dedicated to the Dragon Age game series? If so, I would appreciate if someone posted the link.

    Anyone?

    Maybe if they had escaped and she had gone on to live a long, free life there'd be more to her story, but they fail and she does turn into the Sha'ik Reborn-v2 role the Crippled God wanted her to fulfill. At that point, the person Felisin-the-Younger is gone, only the mask of a role others wanted her to fulfill is left, so it's fitting that that is where her 'story' ends. Take it as a theme on how broken parents and protection alone isn't enough to raise a healthy child with an identity of their own, if you want.

    As I stated earlier, her story didn't feel like it ended but rather it was cut off.

    Since the Crippled God succeeded in turning Felisin younger into his very corrupt version of Sha'ik Reborn, my question is to what end? Because this particular cult has no impact whatsoever in subsequent books and not even Ganoes, who is fully aware of it, makes any references in TCG.

    Maybe I'm just focusing too much attention on this particular plot, since I am seemingly the only one who's bothered by the way the story "ends".

    I don't like this narrative sleight of hand where Erikson invested quite a bit of time in Felisin younger between HoC and TBH, giving us the impression that her story was leading somewhere particularly with the Seven going through the all the trouble of snatching her away from Cutter's hands and making her Sha'ik Reborn, implying this was going to have greater consequences, only to completely discard the story and never bring it up again makes me feel like Erikson wasted my time as a reader.

    But my problem is that I didn't feel like her story ended, it was merely paused and seemingly forgotten.
