The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind. In Tar Valon, Min sees portents of hideous doom. Will the White Tower itself be broken? In the Two Rivers, the Whitecloaks ride in pursuit of a man with golden eyes, and in pursuit of the Dragon Reborn. In Cantorin, among the Sea Folk, High Lady Suroth plots the return of the Seanchan armies to the mainland. In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve. Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn ...… (més)

Even though the impossible names have been ramped up to 11, I still am fascinated by this series. I love that we're seeing real character growth. ( )
  KrakenTamer | Oct 23, 2021 |
The story improves as it develops, but this book was needlessly long and a tad contrived at the end. The world-building keeps being far more than impressive, and the character development is thankfully following suit - albeit slow. ( )

A very long book that in the main is very entertaining. However the middle third I found particularly draining. There was quite a considerable amount of world building and extrapolation which was fascinating went on too long. However the ending and in particular, Perrins story line was particularly exciting. At the end, I did want to know what happen next. ( )

A good continuation of the story and as always well read by Kate and Michael. ( )

Mat snorted. “I don’t want to be any bloody hero.”

Bit late for that. For all of them.


“How do you feel about your prophesied destiny? I must know, if I am to compose this epic."

"Feel?" Rand looked around the camp, at the Jindo moving among the tents. How many of them would be dead before he was done? "Tired. I feel tired.”


In [b:The Shadow Rising|9539|The Shadow Rising (Wheel of Time, #4)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1470841890s/9539.jpg|6591373], there is a feeling of settling. That's not to say that things aren't still happening, oh they very much are. Rand is coming into his own and forging a nation in a way no one would expect, Matt is coming into an entirely new destiny.

Perrin... this is among my favorite parts of the series. When Perrin hears about White Cloaks and trollocs attacking the Two Rivers, he breaks away from Rand--which despite all his grumbling Matt was unable to do--and goes to help. While some of his reasons for doing so far a bit mad, he ends up where he needs to be. And Faile. Oh Faile. They're good for one another, even if it takes them forever to realize it.

We're also getting yet more expansion of the world--seeing the Aiel waste as the Aiel see it, along with a direct look deep into the history of the world. We see another of the great cities in Tanchico, along with putting a more human face on the Seanchan. And that storyline in the Tower. Oh how the world is changing. And oh much I know is yet to come.

One interesting thing that I hadn't really put together before reading a few articles before this reread:

Once the main characters split up and leave Tear... we'll not see so many of the main characters together again until the last battle--if then. It's like knowing that one day you will pick up your child for the last time. You don't know it when it happens and there's a whole lifetime yet ahead of you. But it's still the last time. ( )

The Shadow shall rise across the world, and darken every land, even to the smallest corner, and there shall be neither Light nor safety. And he who shall be born of the Dawn, born of the Maiden, according to Prophecy, he shall stretch forth his hands to catch the Shadow, and the world shall scream in the pain of salvation. All Glory be to the Creator, and to the Light, and to he who shall be born again. May the Light save us from him.

--from Commentaries on the Karaethon Cycle

(circa 325 AB, the Third Age)
And when the blood was sprinkled on ground where nothing could grow, the Children of the Dragon did spring up, the People of the Dragon, armed to dance with death. And he did call them forth from the wasted lands, and they did shake the world with battle.
