I think some of the parties involved needed to die but that just my opinion. It seems to me that the lead bronze, Mnemorth, should be running the meetings. The classism and totalitarianism and misogyny become eroded by new ways of thinking that develop in this novel, which is pretty cool.

Masterweaver Zurg had compensated for his tendency to slouch, so the hem did not hike up. But then again, books should come with cloth bookmarks by default. Great series to read. F’larF’nor’s half-brother, is eventually forced into a duel with T’ronthe leader of the Oldtimers, which ends in banishment for the Oldtimers who will not accept F’lar’s leadership and in a grave injury for F’nor.
