Wasn't that a reference to dream that Damia had? I'm also remembering Larak and Damia camping out and there being a story-telling event that scared Larak to death.

Arrgghh...cannot remember.

didn't they also refer to the encroaching mind from extra galactic space as a soul stealer after all was said and done .... (i'm trying to be vague on purpose to avoid spoiling for anyone who hasn't read it!)

She asked a question and deserves a straight answer, spoilers or not. The books have been around for over 10 years, so...

During a hectic game Damia as a child got hit on the head with a stone and was knocked unconscious. During her coma she had a dream of soul-stealers coming to "get" her. She scared Larak into starting a forest fire when they were on a trek to find Hiver artifacts by telling the story. Later she compared the alien Sodan to soul-stealers.

Thanks Granath. I figured you would be the one to remember this correctly. It was all mixed up in my head.

You're welcome. Although come to think of it, they were soul-eaters, not stealers...

Thanks Granath!

I couldn't recall it at all, and actually thought the term had come from one of the other series.
