About Lord Melkor

  1. But Sutts, I'm going to a book signing next month, you best believe I intend on asking about the Sharan men. I just can't let that one pass me by. I can stand for making random people disappear, I mean maybe they were hiding, because they lost their will to live and survive, but I can't abide by introducing people who don't bloody exist! Well, Sharan male channelers were likely trained to channel by Demandred.
  2. Regarding not committing of all channelers to offensive by both Light and Dark sides - maybe they didn`t want to make the entire war a battle between channelers, since with hundreds of them it would mean uncontrolled bloodbath?
  3. Romanda is incinerated by dozens of Sharan channelers hitting her at once. Doesine is beheaded, IIRC. Alanna is stabbed, almost bleeds out, is Healed by Nyaneve, and then killed by a thrown knife to the chest from Moridin. Annoura also dies as mentioned above. Sarene is Compelled by Graendal and appears to be dead (she's last seen collapsing with 'glassy eyes' as Cadsuane blows the living crap out of the area around Graendal). Siuan dies. Leane almost dies but just about survives a direct meeting with Demandred. I thought Yukiri was toast when Mat's command tent was attacked as she disappears
  4. Do some named Aes Sedai that are not major characters (like the Sitters) die?
  5. Yep. That's Logain's glory. Being a leader and a beacon of hope after the last battle (weird that that particular prophecy is something that's going be fulfilled offscreen after the series proper). Hmm, does it seem like Logain would like to make Ashaman more than warriors, but also advisors and researchers like Aes Sedai are? He would certainly need to find reasonable compromise with the White Tower.
  6. One thing I still did not learn much about - did anyone (in the book) wondered what Ashaman are going to do after the Last Battle, as they were created solely to help in Last Battle?
  7. Only if Shara is minutely populated. 400 Ayyad are less channellers than the Shaido alone had at their disposal. Given that the Sharans use both men and women as channellers, the entire nation/subcontinent's total tally of channellers should have vastly outstripped that of the Westlands (and maybe the Westlands, Aiel and Seanchan combined). No. Pevara and Androl touch on it and actually find a solution - bonding one another simultaneously to balance out with no one person in charge of the other - but Logain spends half the book being tortured by the Darkfriend Asha'aman and the res
  8. That'd be like looking for a needle in a haystack (the book is 910 pages long in hardcover, and remember no e-edition for several months). She certainly doesn't appear (that I recall), so I may have misremembered that she was mentioned. The Sharan thing could have been explained better. My take - given that Demanded had a different title and the Sharan leader was not identified as Sh'boan or Sh'botay - was that Demandred had effectively taken command of a Sharan army of Darkfriends, consisting of a few tens of thousands of troops and 400 Ayyad. With Shara in civil war/chaos, that w
  9. Really nice to hear about Demandred. Did Taim receive some development as well? Can we imply from this book how the relations between the Ashaman and Aes Sedai are going to look like in the future? Was any official policy adopted with respect to Ashaman and Aes Sedai bonding each other?
  10. Nothing about Nakomi is explained. There is something about her at the end. But it's pretty much meaningless so far as I can tell. You might as well wait until you read the book because it's not going to satisfy you anyway. Taim wove a huge amount of balefire using a Callandor level sa'angreal and the Pattern was on the verge of unraveling so Egwene gave enough time for Rand to fix it. About bodyswap, basically, everyone besides his three women assumed Rand died, while he was alive in Moridin's body. He got his own peace. I wish he'd gone out in a blaze of glory and maybe come with the
  11. Wait, so does that mean that channelers were not essential part of the war? I was under impression that hundreds of channelers together can destroy entire armies easily. On the other hand, they were not all used to using the One Power in warfare, other than the Ashaman. Didn`t Demandred utilize the Aiel turned channelers and evil Ashaman in his strategy?
  12. Another thing I am curious about - did most of Taim's followers fight in the Last Battle, or were they routed earlier when Logain retook BT from Taim? Does Mazrim Taim have a POV in this book?
  13. Well we can make up all that stuff as fans right? :) Aviendha vision has probably been averted. Early on, they insisted they be part of the Dragon's Peace which already significantly changes things. Rhuarc dies which is different from her vision where he is alive. Every Wise One at least who walks through those columns sees the same potential future so it is very unlikely that future will now come to pass. Rand essentially creates a United Nations with the Aiel as a peacekeeping force to enforce the will of the "UN." Rand makes a truce to bring the Seanchan over that is reasonable. The
  14. Some minor questions, if I may: Did Aes Sedai made circles with Ashaman en masse or was it only Androl's group? Were any normal soldiers even relevant in Last Battle when we had hundreds of channelers facing each other? Did Taim's men constitute a large number of Shadow channelers? Thanks.
