This is the twenty-third 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.
22: Syenite, fractured
Cannibals, the Sanzeds are/were cannibals. That’s why Misalem went to Yumenes to kill the emperor – they took and ate his family and he wanted payback. After Alabaster tells the full story of Shemshena to Syenite and she tells him of the guardian, he swears that he’ll break the world if the guardians hurt him or Syenite or Corundum anymore. (And now I’m guessing that he’s the one who caused the rend at Yumenes.)
Oh snap now a few weeks later burgundy guardians have found Meov; and the story is very intense, and we finally learn who the narrator is. (AHAH I thought the narrator would play a part in this story!)
nothing new here
