This is the fourteenth blog installment of Read & React for The Fifth Season. If you’re new to the series check out the first installment here. Eventually I hope to take my notes from this and transform them into a Spoiler Free Review, but this segment will definitely be filled with spoilers since it is my thoughts as I go through the book. Reader be warned, this post is meant for discussion purposes; avert your eyes now if you wish to avoid spoilers.
13: you’re on the trail
The lady from the pump house’s name is Tonkee. She confirms that at one point she was a university student, but now she’s lives in a bit of cave in the middle of a forest not far from the pump house. They all rest up at her house then, as a group, set out on the road again with Hoa giving instructions on how to follow Nassun, but eventually he loses the trail since a lot of orogenes seem to be meeting up at a place they’re approaching. (I like this little group and I wonder how Hoa’s powers work since they’re so different from orogenes’.)
