These were challenging reads, both thematically and structurally, but well worth it. I did not expect such a satisfying ending. My heart broke so many times reading this and yet there were so many grains of hope scattered just where they were needed.

favorite serious quotes:
Spoiler
Hoa says to your slumped back, "I can't die."

You frown, jarred out of melancholy by this apparent non sequitur. Then you understand: He's saying you won't ever lose him. He will not crumble away like Alabaster. You can't ever be surprised by the pain of Hoa's loss the way you were with Corundum or Innon or Alabaster or Uche, or now Jija. You can't hurt Hoa in any way that matters. "It's safe to love you," you murmur, in startled realization.

"Yes."

Spoiler
She draws up her feet and wraps her arms around her knees, curiously vulnerable for someone whose presence within the strata is as deep and dense as a mountain. I reach up to touch her ankle, greatly daring, and she blinks and smiles at me, reaching down to cover my fingers with her hand. I will not understand my feelings for centuries afterward.

Spoiler
The onyx says, in its ponderous, wordless way:

Execute Y/N?

And in the cold stone silence, alone, Nassun chooses.

YES

Spoiler
"It might take some time."

"I don't think I'm very patient."

But you take my hand. Don't be patient. Don't ever be. This is the way a new world begins.

"Neither am I," I say. "So let's get to it."

Spoiler
It's almost like the old days, except that now Hoa appears as you walk, gets left behind as you keep walking, then appears again somewhere ahead of you. Most times he adopts a neutral posture, but occasionally he's doing something ridiculous, like the time you find him in a running pose.

Spoiler
Remwha crouches to run a hand along the wooden slats of the floor. I don't know why he does anything.

Spoiler
Asked Tinimony to take me into the hole today and she said no. What's in the hole, huh? What's in the hole.
