The Malazan Re-read of the Fallen - GOTM Ch. 16 & 17

Amanda and Bill are up to Chapters 16 & 17 on their Malazan Re-read of the Fallen:
That Rake/Baruk scene is one of my favorite Rake scenes (and I have a lot of Rake scenes I enjoy). We’ve discussed how often Erikson plays with point-of-view to leave us thinking one thing and then switches over to reveal we weren’t playing with a full deck, so to speak. But in this case, I immediately bought Rake’s sincerity in describing his sense of duty and eight books later I have yet to question that first impression of sincerity. 
 Interesting stuff for new and veteran Erikson readers alike.
