They are so brazen with their truths, though in truth there is only one truth that is impirical. My truth.

You are indeed the pura, Lace.

Although, if there had been a very final ending for him, I think it all would have been wrapped up a trifle too neatly to really be "good writing," and may have ruined the mystery that surrounded him. I don't think he was meant to ever be completely understood.
I agree with you Arya. I don't think he is to ever be completely understood. I have come to terms with the idea he is one of those characters who is very much debated about and will still be very much debated about both in his world and ours. I believe his purpose in the series was 'peace' and that is the attribute he brought always feeling guilty for his turmoil and anger. Looking back on the series I think it was to be viewed as not good vs evil kind of series, but rather peace vs war and coming to terms with compromise. Stronghand is a valiant example of that wisdom. Coming from a savage person with the instincts to kill to a person who thought situations out, carefully using his wits to gain the upper hand and learning that not always jumping in regardless of the aftermath as he once did. I always wondered at the final battle what was his intent. He did nothing but watch and commented that they (the Wendars) were making his job easier. I don't think he had to lift a finger to fight, nor his men. I don't think any of his men would have been killed if it hadn't been for the gallas.

The gallas...

Why the heck did Antonia send them after Sanglant? Why not those who betrayed her? Why Sanglant? That seem to shock me. Anyone else?

Re: The Crown Of Stars, Book 7

I loved you three once. Now I suffer your lies. I would send a Galla your way but no doubt you would simply kick and 'L' out of it and turn it into a dancing and singing festival and dance and sing to your hearts content. I loved you three once....

She sent them after Sanglant because she still had delusions that she was a tool of God. She saw Sanglant as an abomination who did not have the excuse of human weaknesses that could be forgiven. I think that deep down inside she hated him because she feared him. Plus, in her mind, Sanglant stole her son's love from her.

I felt just fine about Hugh's fate. I thought it was fitting that a man like him would lost control over his life and have his power harnessed by someone inherently good, like Sorgatani. Plus, the fact that he was blind definitely helped make him a good match for her.

Arya, how can somebody be so beautiful outwardly but in truth have such a rotten core?

AH! I forgot about this little bit of triva...

Hugh?

Well... I like what Liath did to him. Most fitting. Still think Wickman should have been the pura.

Oh...sorry lace... you're the pura.

You're going to have to be more specific, my friend.

Have you finished yet? And if not, why the crap are you on here? You should be tearing through the last pages as I type this.

In reference to yourself? Nasty creature that Hugh, Lace. Didn't think you were that evil.

At least they were all referred to as Angels... beautiful in looks. I accept that.

Echoing Arya... Now finish the books.
