I assumed it with Ambrose and Co doing the poisoning, they have ties to the University/Caldicus and people in the line of succession are killed off through out the chronicles (Wasn't there a shipwreck that brought Ambrose closer to the throne? Hmm.)Secondly, the Maer's poisoning, and the reference to the Amyr that is/are near him. I feel that those two things are connected. Firstly, the Amyr work for the greater good. Could they be responsible for the poisoning?
I think Denna is the opposite of the Amyr. I think it more likely that she is being slowly corrupted by the Chandrian.
There are certainly clues enough that she works for one of the Chandrian.
Groovy - but will it be as enjoyable without Kvothe?Yeah, I'm going with that...
BTW, on Patrick's latest blog, he links to an interview done (where he drops a hint and clue or two) and is asked the question "Will there be more books in this world?" and he says "Oh yes." YIPPEE!!
