I finally got to read this! I needed to reread the whole series first, which turned out to be very wise because I remembered almost nothing of Oathbringer, and Words of Radiance was also pretty dicey.
- I LOVED the end of the trial, which I figured the deadeyes would be pivotal to in some way. I was so invested in Adolin trying to reach Maya as she was freaking out and then when she finally managed to get those words out, I felt this surge of triumph and then immediately burst into tears. I loved it SO MUCH.
- It's been a loooong time since I read Elantris and I've only read the first three of the Mistborn series (also long long ago) so I figure I'm missing a ton of references and easter eggs in these books, but when they opened that box and were like hey it's a seon my eyes just froze and re-read that sentence over and over again. Those types of connections will never stop being exciting to me.
- If Taravangian is the new Odium, is he still bound by the old Odium's bargain? I feel like the next book is going to be wild if their big battle is ten days from the end of this book!
