- Davien is just awesome
- we’ve finally made it to Ettinmere - which has always been listed as an unconquered town on the map.
- oh Arithon
- oh Lysaer
- oh Daliana!
- such callous talk of wholesale slaughter
- the despicacality (?) of Morriel / Selidie just grows - makes me want to reach into the book and enact something..
- can’t wait for the next chapter!

I got to the end and it was like Noooooooooo.......

Should have known Janny could not fit all I was expecting in one book. I was a bit sad about some things, but it was not anywhere near the grueling experience I thought it would be.

I get the kindle version tomorrow, have to go study some things a bit closer, a few things I did not understand. Wait for more to finish.

Hey you guys!

Amazon dot com has installed its
"LOOK INSIDE" feature for Destiny's Conflict.
That means, that even without making a purchase,
I can click the mouse on "LOOK INSIDE"
and read, not only the
Lysaer material in Janny's Sneak Peek ("Duress") posted here at Janny's website,
BUT ALSO
the opening lines of "Pitfall"
covering Arithon's next steps, literally.
Go check it out!

SPOILER ?

The Amazon/Kindle "Look Inside" feature includes part of Janny Wurts's Timeline, and I have to say:

Drake Wars?
DRAKE WARS?

What's this about DRAKE WARS at Penstair
fought by the Fellowship of Sorcerers?
And why the heck did they do it ... what ... how ... AAAGH!

Just finished the summary - that was really useful.

https://www.harpercollins.com which is the publisher's website
has got a page for Destiny's Conflict.

And that page, the first time you pull it up,
provides a link to A SAMPLE ONLINE.
If you read the sample, then return to the book's page,
the sample-link disappears, so you can only look once.

What's in the sample??

The "Duress" text posted here by Janny.
Elaira, gone to ground, attempting a scrying.
Arithon, headed for Elaira's empty cabin.
Tarens with Siantra, catching up with Esfand,
and arriving at Halwythwood to confront
caithdien Cosach and Laithen.

Enjoy!

The recent Drake wars were first mentioned back in Initiate's Trial, while Asandir was dealing with the young drake. And there was a mention later that seems to indicate a crowned S’Lornmein might have died by Drake fire.
=================================================

They had battled ravenous drake spawn, and died in the bale-fires of dragons gone rogue. But never before had a newly crowned sovereign risked the raw brunt of Lysaer s’Ilessid’s mastery of elemental light.
Initiate's Trial
=================================================

It was interesting the Fellowship went to so much trouble to keep Seshkrozchiel sleeping. The dragons might return when she wakes and starts house cleaning. Keeping her in reserve for the worst maybe?


‘May the great drakes seed ruin, and rain scorching piss on the upstart religion.’

Morriel... HAHAHAHAHA!!!! I saw that coming as soon as she let the fly into her web. I was not disappointed! I made insane vague posts about my fist pumping action to my FB page. They probably think I'm nuts, but that's what happens when I get sleep deprived. I should nap but I'm still too stoked at finishing.

Sethvir sensing the beginning of the avalanche towards ???possible??? co-habitation with the Paravians... Elaira using a kind of magical search engine (that had me chuckling)... Cosach's litany of the clan daily life struggles vs. townborn comfort... that could be anywhere in the world today where refugees are.

so much.

diving back in ...

Just finished- head spinning because I read through so fast. There were a few- "what??" moments- so thank you Janny for getting my heart rate up a bit! Absolutely some sad bits, but also some closure.

Thank you so much Janny- well worth the wait!
