By the way, since I’m already posting all of my reactios to The Way of Kings, I have to comment on this line, too:
“Ati was once a kind and generous man, and you saw what became of him.”
Yes, I did see what became of him, Brandon. And really, I couldn’t even begin to appreciate this unasked-for piece of information as much as it deserved, now that I know it. Thanks, a lot, for making me feel guilty for not caring about a literal GOD OF RUIN. Of course I just NEEDED to feel sorry for another antagonist, because the last TEN of them still weren’t quite ENOUGH. I just NEEDED another one, you totally anticipated all of my emotional needs about this. Now excuse me, I have to crawl into a hole and die.
