I'm just going to jump right into it.1.  I think Gavin (Dazen) killed Sevastian and that was actually the first time he used black luxin to forget. I think I've said this theory before, but I'll…Continue

The blue wight

So I re-read the series again, and the blue wight killing Sevastian still irks me. It seems to random and purposeful at the same time. There is a deeper significance, but I can't think of any. Any…Continue

So I'm re-reading all the books and I'm trying to figure out what the deal is with the prisoner.Note: most of this is from The Blinding KnifeThe seer says his "counterpart" has escaped the blue prison.Marissia (spelling) said no alarms went off; however, the bread shoot shifted over to the green cell.But in the Blood Mirrror, it is insinuated that Gavin (Dazen), actually killed his brother at Sundered Rock and drafted a black luxin spear. So the question is: what escaped/is escaping the…See More

So can Grinwoody draft? If yes, what colors?

The Broken Eye and Black Luxin (Spoilers if you haven't read TBE)

Posted on September 6, 2014 at 12:57pm 3 Comments

So I just finished TBE and was thinking about the tenets of the Order of the Broken Eye.  At the end, Grinwoody tells Ironfist that he either needs to save or Kill Kip.  Ironfist delivers the black luxin crystal.  

We also see that Gavin (Dazen) is locked up in the prison he set up for his brother.  Gavin is capable of drafting black luxin as we saw in the eye gouging scene and he mentions it (I think after he kills the Whiteoaks). 

I think it's fair to say The…
