    Unpopular opinion:

    I found the Wolves' motivations to be a load of nonsense throughout the latter books, and I was annoyed at how the Perish totally disappeared from the narrative and are never acknowledged again towards the end of TCG

    (Thanks whoever moved this to general book discussion, so we can talk spoilers :) )

    I can see why you'd feel that way. Tbh I don't have much of a problem with their motivations, they're wolves who wanna raze the world, whatever. I kinda have more of a problem with their followers and how naive they are to follow the Wolves

    The whole notion of dedicating yourself to wolf gods without even knowing their motives doesn't sit well with me. Take TCG for instance. He's terrible, but it makes sense why people worship him; misery loves company, TCG offers them power (corrupted power, nonetheless) to wreak havoc, etc. I think he's a pretty clear cut god with clear cut worshippers, they all understand what they're getting themselves into in their relationship.

    But take the wolves; hundreds of people are following them because...why exactly? War? Because they look cool? Idk the whole backstory behind the Grey Swords and Helms feels very vague to me, never really got why they're following the Wolves as opposed to some other god, especially gods as cryptic as them. Toc and the GS naively go to a random continent just because the Wolves tell them to, with no clarification besides some random dreams...idk I'd be suspicious and try asking questions before blindly marching into war. Maybe you can call it trust that was betrayed though, or maybe it's a commentary on faith itself...

    Note: if you're okay with whole series discussion, probably best to put it in the final book subforum, or General Book Topics.

    That out of the way, full-MBotF spoilers:

    Hi worry, thank you for the thorough response.

    Gotcha, did that even include gods like Rake?
