Here's what I thought of House of Chains, TBH: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2508371352?book_show_action=false

As for Midnight Tides, I'm 37% in and it is probably the fastest read so far.  Yea, I knew that's it's all basically like a puzzle that comes together. I was told that before I got into the series. As for the two characters, I know who you're talking about.

I have yet to read anything by Esselmont, but I plan to given that some of them do weave into the main series, like Orb, Scepter, Throne.

I'm 65% through House of Chains and I don't think it anywhere near tops Memories of Ice. So, I think it's a question of who you ask.

I do, however, happen to like that one character though. In fact, I adore him. But, he does not compare to my cinnamon roll Itkovian.

About a year later, Adagio introduces a Fandom Wheel: https://www.adagio.com/w10591

You spin it and you get a free sample with your order. I got a tin of Griffith/Guts.

Really?—Interesting. So are you just talking about Kellhus making Proyas the scapegoat for the Cannibal Ordeal, hanging him on the Arobindant to die of exposure or are you talking about his actual death scene, the reunion with Cnaiur and then the mercy killing from Moenghus?

Pretty much all of it.  I read up to the point to where he was kicked down and left hanging. Beyond that, I looked for spoilers and boy did I find them. Like I said, I saw no reason to continue.

I'm aware of what Proyas was involved in, but I also remember that he would negotiate surrenders only for Saubon to be the one killing every one. My anger had a lot to do with the WAY it happened and the fact that his downfall was set up. I felt like it was just subversive for the sake of being subversive. I really believe that there could have been alternatives.

Overall, I LOVE the series. I have no regrets getting into it and highly recommend it. TBH, I rage quit for reasons that had nothing to do with the overall quality and everything to do with my own biased/arbitrary reasons.

It had to do with The death of Proyas and the way it happened and when I found out what happens afterward, I saw no reason to continue. Other characters were either no longer compelling enough or never were for me to go on.

I read the ending though and tbh, I LOVED that.

FTR, he's the only author ever who got me to "tap out/rage quit". In other cases, I just lose interest/bored. Not this case. The rule of the slog is "no weepers" and I wept a great deal.

Oh yea, you're right. The Third one is supposed to be the No God. I'm about 20% complete with the Unholy Consult.

Speaking of Berserk, I found out about Bakker ON THIS VERY FORUM when someone made some comparisons! LOL!

The Darkness that Comes Before by R. Scott Bakker! The Prince of Nothing series and I am LOVING it!!1 I actually found it through this site when someone mentioned it with some comparisons. I finally started reading it when my hard drive failed, leaving me without a comp.

Maybe things happen for a reason. ;)

Some of the characters remind me of Berserk characters.

Thanks to the Anime/Manga Gift exchange on reddit, I was finally able to try Guts! It's quite addictive with a good, strong after taste. I just kept sipping and sipping at it. It's a solid spice tea and like I said before, I can see why it's so popular!

Hopefully, I'll come up with some new blends soon!

What I should be playing: Final Fantasy XV/DQ7/Soul Hackers
What I am playing: Saga Frontier

There is something about Saga Frontier. Despite it's flaws, it stood the test of time for me. Especially the Asellus scenario.

I too tried Ivalera and loved it! Solid Raspberry! I noticed that the cooler it got, the better it tasted, so I'm thinking that it will make an excellent iced tea!
