So I just finished reading this, and I enjoyed it, but must say I am just a little confused by the ending.

It seems to me that the thing Cyrus was dealing with in "Fateweaver" was obviously Kairos, but then in "Accursed Eternity" the thing they fight laughs at the inquisitor for wrongly believing he was Fateweaver.

Was he lying to the inquisitor? Was the thing Cyrus dealing with lying to him? Did I miss something somewhere?

I like how to book looped back onto itself.

Fateweaver became the Accursed Eternity, he is the ship. That other Daemon was likely another that entered the ship and became trapped, same as the Star Dragons.

Thanks, that makes a little more sense.

I remember when it was describing Fateweaver become the ship, something about he had no other choice; It was either that or go back to the warp, which he was trying to avoid.

Still, it was confusing, because

  • The 'other' demon was a Lord of Change.
  • They described him as needing people onboard to manifest. When they were gone, so was he.
  • He interacted with the other 'trapped' time period. (Which ended up being the crew from Fateweaver)
There was also a point after the inquisitor called him Fateweaver, that he said something like "Not exactly". Or "We used to be" or something like similar. Do you think that demon and the ship combined represented the two heads, the same way that the astropath and Hekate were its two heads?

Going to have to flip through that part again tonight at home.

Very old post but I just finished the book.
I have some questions if you are still active.
How is the Astartes stuck on the Accursed Eternity in a time loop, won't the others who escaped also be in the same loop as he sees the Astartes priest again and again at the mercy of the demon ? Are the other ghosts in the ship also in a time loop ?
Also if that astartes equipment deteriorating doesn't he get older also ? Yes Astartes are long lived but certainly not immortal.
