    there’s some ‘new’ land probably along an oceanic ridge clear to the far side of the planet, and the Southern Isle below the Marid is about as large as Mospheira, which is about half the size of Australia, as I view it. Geologically speaking, the Continent is assembled out of at least 3 big pieces, former independent landmasses having rammed together from the south and east, hence the modest mountain range separating the Marid from the rest of the continent, and the really impressive range separating the East from the rest of the continent. There is no really convenient land off the East coast to encourage much beyond coast-hugging fishermen, but there is off the Marid coast, and of course there was Mospheira and Crescent Island before the humans landed, off the west.
    So, yes, I have sort of an idea of geologic history as well as political history.

    what happened to the 6 other Taylor’s Children that Ramirez activated. They are mentioned in Precursor (I think) and that seems to be that. Do Jase and or Yolanda know who they are? Is it perhaps a secret known only by the Guild or Ogun and Sabin? Do these people even know their own background?

      I can get it…may take me a bit. I’ll have to track it down. I’m not able to link to it right off.

        Cool! Thanks so much! And I preordered it while I was at it. 🙂

          If you check Todd Lockwood’s Facebook page, he has an album of the art, with zoomed in sections.

      Wondering if the Adjaiwaio (of the Midedeni heresy) have ever been mentioned again since the first Foreigner book? I don’t think it has.

      I’m thinking that a heresy that Bren was believed to believe in might, by this point in his career and positive notoriety, have a resurgence among the Atevi?

      This little plot thread has been nagging at me through all these wonderful books.

      So if the number two is so dang unfortunate, why do atevi cultures have a gender binary?

      Please don’t say “because gender itself is infelicitous.” I agree with that, but I don’t think it’s enough of an answer.
