Comments to Caine Black Knife by Matthew Woodring Stover
Submitted by Anonymous (Aug 11, 2009)
Caine did not really have godlike powers, he had that black energy drawn to him that he used to move his legs again. All this energy does is let him be the centre of fate for the world, and sometimes let him change it. Everything else that he does is completely mortal in nature, just brutally effective and extremely well trained.

Caine had godly powers in 2 instances. First was through the sword / his wife / The River, which was ended when Kosall was "destroyed". The second was the power Home gave him. In Caine Black Knife, Home isn't responding to Caine. So, no powers.

I just got the book and absolutely agree with the review. Outstanding book, did not disappoint at all. I am only halfway through the book, not sure if the other half has the answer to my question but would like clarification before I finish.
Blade of Tyshalle ended with Caine having godlike powers, in Caine Black Knife he seems to revert back to his mortal self. What happened? Did I miss something?
Not complaining, one of the things I enjoy about the character is Caine is always at his best when pushed to the limits...and beyond.
