I think SJM is referencing Erilea and Aelin and the TOG world. Hear me out,
“Koschei, too- confined and bound by his little lake on the continent”
Is it just me or does Koschei sound like the creature in the lake that Rowan and Aelin encounter when training. Afterall, The Bone Carver and its siblings are said to be around for tens of thousands of years.
“All before Prythian, before this land was carved up and Any High Lords were crowned… Ancient Fae”
SJM droppin some hints here about the timeline difference between Throne of Glass and ACOTAR series. That the TOG world came first.
“Clever, that Fae warrior. Her bloodline is long gone by now- … No one remembers her name. But I do. She would have been my salvation, had I not made my choice long before she walked this earth.”
Uhhhh Sound like Aelin to anyone?? No one remembers her name, making her The Nameless once more. She knows how to open wrydgates, it’s how she could have gotten the Bone Carver and his siblings, and Amren, home.
“She could not kill them in the end- they were too strong. They could only be contained”
Foreshadowing the next TOG book?
This just stood out at me a lot and we all know how SJM is with slipping in details.
