Yes it was quite a turn-up for the books to find out who it was.
I don’t think Casca knew and that the knowledge of who was the Elder was only for the reader’s benefit and not part of what Casca imparted to Goldman.

I’m in The Damned, now. Good story! I miss the Doctor, though. Bothered as I am by the long reach of the cursed Brotherhood, were they responsible for what happened to Helsfjord?

Nope. Barry never inferred it and I certainly won’t change that.

I’m glad to know. Omnipresent enemies are hard for me.

So I don’t do the Brotherhood all the time and later bring up an interesting opponent for them.

The Damned is a fine book. Every once in a while, reading these and of course my haphazard knowledge of history, I wonder how the human race made it to now. The story of Casca dying very quickly from the plague, and later freaking Atilla out by proving to be alive made me smile.

Things I expect to come back: Atilla’s treasure. Sleeping away years.

Question: Does Casca start telling women who want him that he can’t sire children?

I’m happily in Soldier of Fortune, now. I’m waiting to find out if Yu Li survives. They’re in what feels like the last firefight.

I love Casca’s two friends, and the reference to his buddy from Panzer Soldier. Loved the sky hooks.

Sky hooks were from Fort Bragg and Sadler was there training so he knew them quite well. I liked SoF’s descriptive telling of the jungle temple scenes.

Answer to your question re: women. I sometimes have him infer that, I did so in the Lombard.

I’m in The Sentinel, now. Very early in, actually, Casca and Ireina are on their way down to the village. I have, unfortunately, caught wind of what’s going to happen with the Brotherhood in this book. I do hate spoilers, but they came with looking up how to spell Ireina’s name, as I’m listening to the audiobooks. I’ll be picking up the ebook for #2 soon.

Still unknown: How did Casca get the power to mesmerize another person and have them relive what he wants them to know of his life?

Since Jesus had the power to make Casca immortal, then unless he’s a monster himself, he also has the power to pass judgement on the Brotherhood. It would be nice to think that these filth end up in Hell for the evils they commit.

Sentinel is one of my faves from the Sadler era. I love that period of history and I enjoyed the fact Sadler had him entombed in ice for all those years. I was irritated at the couple of errors at the start with the time of events, but I suppose that’s me being OCD with history.

I have no idea where Casca got his power to mesmerise from but Sadler had Casca use it right from the word go.

I think the Brotherhood will be judged at the right time by the right people and end up in the right place.
