    I am very interested to see if Rezkin will be able to heal the head of house mulnak. I still do not know how the burn that could not be healed actually happened.

    “I had no say in this arrangement.”
    “It is for the good of our people (earnest).”
    “That is a lie, and you know it. When has this kind of arrangement ever done our people any good. The results are—”

    Are they talking about a special offspring of their pairing? I am very interested the results with Rezkin as the father.

    Light behind darkness – the curse of thy soul. Fracture thine heart, and broke becomes whole.

    Perhaps you find the meaning, but methinks you know not how.

    I discovered Mel’s Dark Tidings series through a VERY HAPPY ACCIDENT on Amazon Kindle Unlimited years ago, and every time another book in this saga presents itself I giddily devote how ever many hours and days it takes to devour it whole. I’ve even created a Spotify playlist dedicated to Rezkin. Alter Bridge’s Cry of Achilles is an excellent place to start. Lord have mercy, I can’t wait for book 6. Heaven help me, where’s HBO, NETFLIX, HULU… SOMEBODY CALL HENRY CAVILL CUZ GERALT’S A LIL’ BITCH COMPARED TO THE TRUE KING. I WANT A CELEBRITY DEATH MATCH between. Rezkin and Khal Drogo. DEATH IS NOT THE END!!!

      Ugh… My Kindle turned Kel into Mel… Perhaps fate is reaching out from the aether to suggest a “Connovan” or a director…. or both…?

    I fun product that king killer chronologicals is coming out with is Rothfus’ personal version in print. It includes notes in the margins, underlines and circled text. Personal Reminders about the text and why they are important.

    Any plans to come out with something like this? Maybe a pre-edit version scanned into digital format, and just available on your website…it would just be a draft version at that point.

    How many people would know if Rezkin were dead or alive, via a bond. 1 group of dead elves, a living elf, and 1 wolf? Maybe a tree nymph too.?

      If they do not relay the info that he is alive in time, he might lose a queen he married…though I guess it would provide him the full queen/kingdom. He might also lose the others that are ruling over his other kingdoms. A small army knows that he is dead though…
