I just finished reading book 10 of the Malazan Book of the Fallen and I was left with a big question from books 8-10. Major spoilers below.
When Dragnipur is shattered by Caladan Brood, it released all the beings trapped within that weren't killed by the forces of chaos (or already died within the sword). Apsalara, Draconus, Hood and the Bridgeburners were all released.
Why is it that Anomander Rake was not released when the sword was shattered?
