    I actually gasped when it was like "Vin slammed the body on the floor." D: :cryLike I'd rather her kill a bad person than treat a dog that way. :look

    I gotta rush to catch up so I can click on Elia's spoiler. I can't believe how much of this book I've forgotten. It's like reading it again for the first time.

    Yeah, and in the annotations, Brandon talks about how he was surprised that readers were so mad that Vin killed the dog. :blink

    Really?! He clearly doesn't understand the intense love of dogs by the masses then. :p People get mad at dog-killing in movies too.

    To be honest, I don't envy Vin in either of those situations. :look

    With a single line of "I am insane" in Chapter 8, I think I'm 90% sure I remember who the Watcher is.

    HUGE SPOILER FOR END OF BOOK:
    We learn here when Tenn Soon killed Ore'Seur. Here we suddenly have two bodies in the closet. And the kandra didn't remember the conversation they had about Rashek being the packman to Alendi etc
    Did any of you see that one coming? Because I sure didn't!
