AFB, but Vlad said something similar to "my soul would have gone to feed a
sentience in six inches of steel" in Jhereg (I think). It's the sort of
line that sticks with you. Maybe "feed" is being used metaphorically
there, but I got the impression from other bits in other books that
they're actually eating the souls.
