So I'm kind of wondering here if this is some weird version of our world. There have been odd phrases and things here and there, coupled with the idea that the wheel of time turns and that things are repeated.
Also, I absolutely recognized bits of that prayer. That was a very odd feeling, listening to it.
This is a lot of fun, though. I'm really enjoying it now that I've gotten my footing again. I feel silly for putting it down. I can't wait to see how the whole series will play out! So many books to go... :)
