I was discussing this with @Rob yesterday at lunch as well. I think the souls are going back to the home world and that may be why there is life coming back into the Home Star. But I don't think it's a good thing. It may actually be something more sinister.
We know the Palace is made of the Home Star, and it is "living" and changing the elves. Perhaps the reason the planet was dying is because the High Ones were no longer dying on the Home Star and the planet actually needed their souls for a life source.
Yes, the idea is out there, but I just don't think this is going to be sunshine and preservers.
