The inverse fire is the craziest thing. How can you use the tekne to see into hell? Imagine if I could wire up a telephone and talk to god. The outside must be something like, another dimension or a parallel universe. Why do the gods/demons in those parallel universes care about this one? It's just a soul-farm for them?
That's not the heron spear 2.0. It's the sun lance. Look up "Black Iron Seat" in the glossary. I was so sure that Cnaiur had the heron spear all along. The glossary in this book and previous books confirm that it was lost when the Scylvendi sacked Cenei. I'm sure that King-of-Tribes Moenghus urs Cnaiur will find it and get the job done.
Do they even need the heron spear to beat Mog-Pharau this time? It does not have its embedded chorae.
There's no way Kellhus is actually done for. He's probably chilling in those ciphrangi non-Malowebi decapitants. Lots of good info on this under "decapitants" in the glossary.
Hell, it's hard to believe that Cnaiur is even dead the way these books go.
Is Skulthula still alive? What a badass. A dragon that doesn't get slain for once.
How about them magic cinder swords crafted by the non-man Artisan Emilidis? He also crafted the day lantern and the Amiolas. Amiolas is the helmet/mask with the non-man soul in it that Sorweel, Seswatha, and others have worn. Mostly for language translation, but also other purposes.
Dat baby. The last to be born right before the second apocalypse. Is it going to become the most legendary hero or whatever? Maybe it will be the reincarnation of Nil'giccas? Until they beat Mog-Pharau, it will always be the youngest person alive.
I really want to know more about the rest of the earth. There was that whole breaking of the world where people entered into Earwa. Meanwhile, we've learned more about the void where the Ark came from than we know about anything on this planet further away than Zeum.
