Visions in Farstryke Castle
Ciaran seems to be briefly inhabited by experiences of future events while in Farstryke Castle:
- "You are only my face and voice, not my Will, and I will have you remember that!"
- "She fooled us all, like Russian dolls inside Russian dolls inside Russian dolls. The canny bitch!"
- "Their bodies have been lost to the waves. There is no more cause for hope."
- "The Westlands is advancing on us, we must prepare."
- This last may be a reference to the events in the Moral Certainties compound at the end of The Last Sun.
