The first and third stories are the best! I'm trying to imagine the stories Rhalia, Cynara, and Simon must have to tell, what will be in City of Light, and then I get all giddy. Time to re-re-reread the books.

Absolutely awesome Will. Really enjoyed the first and the last ones. Simon is so well developed from the awkward boy at the beginning of the trilogy to this sword-wielding badass that you can't help but want to see what he becomes next.

From one reader to another,
I thought there could only be one Incarnation per Territory? Also, I thought that Incarnations were no longer able to enter their Territory, which is why they run around Damasca instead.

Thanks Salman and Yeah now that you mention it the old man does seem a little like the eldest; perhaps he's one of the "creatures" of Ragnarus which we haven't seen.

"Why is Rhalia so different?" - This question will be answered in CoL.

Rhys, in regards to killing vs. trapping, I am of the opinion that it is better to trap an Incarnation because then it is, well, trapped/imprisoned, whereas if you kill an Incarnation, a new Incarnation could simply be created. I think this has to do with the fact that there can only be one Incarnation in existence at a time.

I completely understand why you would think that, considering that they're the same type of character with a similar appearance, but I can confirm that they are NOT the same character. They're completely different people.

Wow! I can't wait for the next full book. Thanks for these three small snacks during the winter, but I'm ready for the all you can eat buffet. Great job once again! Now get to work and finish the third novel ;)

Glad to hear it, Gary! Back to work I go!

Also, adding to my earlier comment, when Simon first meets the Eldest Nye he "first thought that he was bowing over his arms and briefly considered a bow in return, but after a moment Simon recognized the look of an old man without a cane."

I think once an incarnation is trapped in its territory, it is possible for another incarnation to occur. For example Rhalia and Alin.
2/8/2014 07:49:48 am
That's right, but it doesn't happen immediately, as will be explained in City of Light. The Incarnation's power and nature steadily fade, until there's room for someone else.

Thank you for writing this series. It is one of the best that I have read recently. Is "The Old Man" the same as the face on the Crimson Vaults Door. He also sounds like he has orchestrated most of what is going on in Damasca. I can't wait to see if his story is revealed in City of Lights. I for one request that you do a book on Valinhal after City of Lights if you are willing. Thank you.

That's the plan, Charles: a Valinhall book after City of Light.

Good stuff yet again. I've got my brother, a technical writer, who is even more picky about fantasy literature then I am, reading and liking your series now. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book my good Sirrah.
2/8/2014 07:36:42 am
My compliments to your brother! I'm a little astounded that he's enjoying ME, of all people, if he's as picky as you say, but that sounds like a huge compliment. Thanks for passing on the word!

I just finished Brian Staveley's Emperor's Blades (amazing book by the way) and was SO pissed that it was back to the hunt for something to read. And then... I remembered, "Hey.. What's going on with Will Wight? That guy writes faster than Brandon Sanderson on adderall." Pull up your blog AND THE BOOK IS OUT? I may have done a dance and fist pumped. Maybe.
2/6/2014 03:27:56 am
Wait, stop! Don't get your hopes too far up!
2/6/2014 07:05:17 am
Dear god Will you play with my heart.
2/8/2014 12:50:26 am
I hope you're happy. After the Endross short, all I want to read is City of Light, but it's not out yet. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?
2/8/2014 07:35:31 am
Sheer malice, Ben. Your suffering gives me the only joy I feel in my cold, dark heart.
2/12/2014 09:18:29 pm
GET BACK TO WORK!
2/20/2014 03:52:18 am
Back to work I go! And I don't think we can ever get enough of crazy, murderous teenagers who get attacked by packs of fiery dogs.
2/23/2014 05:30:13 am
I can't believe how fast you can pump out new material, and the material not suffer for it. I've always had the unfortunate luck to pick up a great series, only to get halfway through and find out the next one won't be out for another year. At which point the book after that will take two, and so on and so forth to the point that it's five years later and I'm still waiting for the epic finale! (cough Peter V. Brett cough)
2/26/2014 11:31:31 pm
Thanks, John! I'll try to continue the amazingness as long as I can.
2/24/2014 09:33:49 pm
Thanks!! I enjoyed Simon's badassness immensely sir. Have a question. Will CoL answer what happened to Talos's Sword?
2/26/2014 11:31:02 pm
Indeed it will, Larry. Indeed it will.
