I think the quote means that Demandred has been using Taim for his schemes.
Also, I think Sermihage uses the phrase as well (lord of Chaos Rule), which ties in with Demandred pulling the strings (Sermihage is allied with Demandred).
I'm wondering how the next book is going to be, myself. After I finished Knife of Dreams, I thought that book twelve is either going to be a 1500 page monstrosity to cram everything in or it's going to be shorter and very anti-climatic. I'm hoping for the 1500 page monstrosity, myself.
Personally, I'm hoping for a book in two volumes.... I don't mind a long series, I did mind CoT not having any significant plot development.
As a side note: Is the killing of shadowspan a function of gateways, or only of deathgates? (and you have to hand it to RJ, his naming of sowrd moves and weaves is pretty cool and evocative )
