This is the nineteenth 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.
18: you discover wonders down below
Ykka takes them on a tour down beneath Castrima. There’s an absolutely enormous geode that people are living in down in a tunnel/cave system. People even carved houses into individual crystals it’s that big. And the way the air filtration system works is by being in the presence of orogeny – no one knows how it actually works though because that’s been lost to civilizations long gone. (I want to live in a giant crystal!!! It sounds really pretty.)
nothing new here
Personal Point of Interest
I wonder if it’s actually plausible to find a geode that big in the real world.
