We have a hard time accepting people of different cultures and religions.
Sometimes fate is avoidable (Vivenna) and sometimes it isn’t (Lightsong).
People can change.
You can’t judge a person by their exterior (Vasher, Susebron)
Countries can be manipulated into war against their own interests and desires.
There’s a really cool magic system in this book – it’s described in very high detail and isn’t like anything I’ve seen before.
