Epilogue Pagination

Shadow is ever besieged, for that is its nature. Whilst darkness devours, and light steals. And so one sees shadow ever retreat to hidden places, only to return in the wake of the war between dark and light.

Observations of the Warrens
Insallan Enura

On the Tiste Edur ships, Cutter and Apsalar speak about denigrating warrens, the Throne of Shadow, and Shadowthrone's schemes. Then shadows crash and swallow around them.

Onrack and Trull Sengar walk alongside a tortoise and speak of mating. Then they discuss the Logros T'lan Imass along with the First Throne and Kellanved's history with it. They speak of the Nameless Ones once trying to claim the First Throne, and the unknown way the Emperor found the Throne and claimed rule of the Logros for his own. They then speak with Monok Ochem and Ibra Gholan about the renegade T'lan Imass and their history.

Pearl and Lostara Yil walk together and speak of Sha'ik Elder, Felisin Paran, and rebirth. Lostara recalls when she killed Sha'ik, and thinks on the Toblakai bodyguard. They then decide to go further into the Whirlwind, and bicker and flirt as they draw near. Once they cross into the Whirlwind, they grab onto each other and begin to kiss.

Kalam Mekhar walks in Raraku and hears the ghosts speaks, ghosts of the past speaking about Dessimbelackis and the Nameless Ones. The ghosts fade away and he addresses the ghost of a Tanno Spiritwalker, and they speak together. Then massive unknown dogs attack him, and he calls upon Azalan demons to help defend him. Those demons answer they call many places, and Shadowthrone is shocked at seeing these strange beasts.

Finally Crokus and Apsalar crash into a dark and dusty chamber, and they find Iskaral Pust waiting to welcome them back to Seven Cities.
