SOD

Post by Fasmin »

Rowan killed the demon Sod more or less easily. And yet Demetrius spent an entire book trying to do the same and ended up freeing an entire army of demons.

I realize it probably happened that way because Tsyz wanted the story to go that way. But all the same, did it have to be that hard? Couldn't Sod have been killed and Virko saved from the state it's now in?
What do you think?

I agree. I think it was meant to heighten the crisis. It's also a wonderful twist since Demetrius, being a monk and a mage, was most likely the one to kill the Demon. However, it's the opposite and Rowan who is nothing but an archer becomes the unlikely hero here.
The conviction I had had had had, and still has the conviction that: I am the only version of myself. :tiphat:

Sod had to be "unbound" in order to be killed permanently. Demetrius accomplished this, but did not have the chance to kill him as Sod's army stampeded past him. Rowan caught Sod unbounded and alone, and caught him by surprise.

Ooh. I think I get it. Demetrius did have the skill and everything but got neither the luck nor the right circumstances. But Rowan had the skills paired with the perfect circumstances and luck. Thanks.
