Memories of Light, week 4

Posted by herid, 26 December 2012 - - - - - - · 420 views

Here is my take on the Memories of Light, week 4.Monday December 17th : Clearly, this is a woman speaking and it's somebody whose offer of aid would seem suspicious to Perrin. My best guess is that it's Tylee. She mentioned that she is fond of Perrin (tGS Prologue) and she fits the bill really well.Tuesday December 18th : I think Rand just realized that s...


Memories of Light, weeks 1-3

Posted by herid, in My Theories 21 December 2012 - - - - - - · 293 views

Monday November 26th:"It had been useful at Maradon. Nobody knew he had it. That was important." Rand thinking about the fat man angreal. He could have retrieved it post VoG, most likely based on the info he got from Verin's red letter she left for him in the Tower. The next day after getting to Tear Rand went somewhere to fetch something He'd (...


AMOL predictions, revisited

Posted by herid, 17 December 2012 - * * * * * · 438 views

I posted some AMOL predictions last year but since then I've changed my mind about some and have thought of some new ones based on the recently released AMOL material. So here goes.Things I believe will happen in AMOL. These are in random orderRand will be captured by the Dark side in some fashion, perhaps during his attempt to kill the DO using Callandor...


What will happen to the Aiel after the Last Battle?

Posted by herid, in My Theories 15 November 2012 - - - - - - · 598 views

This theory is mostly a variation of a theory by Linda at the thirteenth depository but I disagree with her on one very important point. I would also like to address a fair amount of additional evidence which she doesn't consider and so I want to record the whole thing here.

In short, I believe that the Aiel will have to return to the Way of the Leaf af...


Will Rand kill the DO?

Posted by herid, in My Theories 14 November 2012 - - - - - - · 761 views

Rand wants to kill the DO for good. Will he manage that unlikely feat? I believe the answer is "NO". First, a closely related question is whether or not time will remain circular after the LB. BS said the following on the subject. Interview: Jul, 2009  BarnesandNoble.com Book Club Q&A with Brandon Sanderson AldothThe question that I have for...


Who betrayed Egwene in COT?

Posted by herid, in My Theories 07 November 2012 - - - - - - · 779 views

One of the thus far unanswered questions is who ratted out Egwene's plans to turn the harbor chain into cuendillar  which led to Egwene's capture in CoT, ch 30.I believe it was one or several of the five Sitters sent by the Tower Ajah heads to Salidar: Takima, Magla, Faiselle, Saroiya and Varilin.Let's go through the list of possible suspects...


My theory on Rand's death

Posted by herid, in My Theories 21 October 2012 - - - - - - · 1,366 views

It's a well established theory that Rand will have to die and come back to life before the end of the Last Battle. There are many clues in support of this theory and I believe in it fully so I won't bother presenting arguments for it.The interesting question for me is how exactly Rand is going to die (and come back to life). The idea I'll present occurred...


Was the Eye of the World used correctly?

Posted by herid, in My Theories 19 October 2012 - - - - - - · 940 views

In short I believe that Moiraine and Co were baited into using the Eye of the World prematurely by Ishy in order to speed up the destruction of the seals on the DO's prison.Many of the ideas here are not due to me originally. I'll try to give appropriate links when I can.The original purpose of the Eye was never explained. We are simply told that it's sup...


AMOL chapter 1 readthrough

Posted by herid, in Reread comments 17 October 2012 - - - - - - · 432 views

First the general impression. I was very glad to see chapter 1 released as I was starved for new material and developments. But the chapter itself is just so-so from the literary perspective. Basically ok  but nothing I'll want to reread just for the pleasure of it.  The writing seems  rushed at times and BS seems to be...


AMOL Prologue readthrough

Posted by herid, in Reread comments 25 September 2012 - - - - - - · 462 views

Some general comments and impressions first. Overall the prologue is so so. Not too bad but not too good either. It is certainly much weaker than the TOM prologue. That one had some of my favorite scenes in the whole series: the Apples first and the borderlander Tower scene. Nothing in the aMoL prologue comes anywhere close to either of those in terms of...
