Definite improvement over the previous title, this one saw a lot of action and seemingly long-discarded story points start to get resolved. ( )

As usual, there is a great heart stopping end but it's often a slow slog to get there. Perrin and Faile - yawn but at least that's at the beginning and then disappears. The whole 3 wifes bonded to Rand is all rather peculiar but hey ho. As is the Mat and Queen whoever relationship. Mat coming out with "She's my wife" about the Seanchan princess actually made me laugh out loud. I'd still rather read about Rand than any of the other characters although Nynaeve didn't annoy me quite so much in this novel. There's going to be lots more Faile in the next book though isn't there - SIGH. ( )

A man who trusts everyone is a fool and a man who trusts no one is a fool. We are all fools if we live long enough.

In my opinion, entirely too much of [b:Winter's Heart|13891|Winter's Heart (Wheel of Time, #9)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1480096268s/13891.jpg|791225] if taken up by Perrin attempting to rescue Faile and Elayne solidifying her grip on the Lion Throne. Either is an interesting enough plot line to carry for a little while, but they just go on and on... I don't think I'd mind if either was shortened significantly or even dropped entirely if/when the Wheel of Time goes to TV.

One pair of cool scenes we get though is Elayne and Aviendha becoming first sisters and then they plus Min all three bonding Rand. The entire relationship between the four of them is just strange and I'm not really sure what the point is it from a meta narrative perspective. But we do get a few interesting bits, such as this scene. Aviendha and Min feeling Elayne and Rand having sex through the bond though... oy. So very awkward.

The main redeeming trait of Winter's Heart? The finale, where Rand and Nynaeve use the most powerful sa'angreal every made--the Choedan Kal--to cleanse saidin. Similar to the use of the Bowl of the Winds in [b:The Path of Daggers|140974|The Path of Daggers (Wheel of Time, #8)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1390508613s/140974.jpg|1098593], this is a truly epic use of magic. On top of that, we have a direct battle between channelers of the Light and the Dark, without all those pesky soldiers to get in the way. Pretty intense.

Mat finally learning who the Daughter of the Nine Moons is pretty cool too. Quite a way to introduce yourself to your future wife... ( )

This is the first of the books I never read in my youth, swearing to return when Robert Jordan finally finished the whole thing and the fact the last few books had been... not good. Its only took me about 20 years to make that return. The series is starting to pick up again, but even so, its still only limping along. Again, the most exciting bits are shoveled into the last few chapters.

Much of the book focuses on Matt, but instead of actually spending time learning more about the Seanchean, for which this would have been a perfect opportunity, we're pretty much still in the dark in the end. There is creature hunting Matt... but that's not the story either. The story is his sexual encounters (or, attempting to avoid those encounters) with the queen. And waiting. And waiting. And waiting.

Somehow, Faile is still stuck with the Aiel.

It took an entire book for Rand to somehow make his way to Shadar Logoth to attempt the cleansing. And just as it picks up, you get to the end. Again. ( )

The seals that hold back night shall weaken, and in the heart of winter shall winter's heart be born amid the wailing of lamentations and the gnashing of teeth, for winter's heart shall ride a black horse, and the name of it is Death. --from The Karaethon Cycle: The Prophecies of the Dragon
