This is the second shortest ("only" 685 pages) and second-worst rated ("only" 3.92) of the series, and I'm inclined to think that there's a correlation there, as this one seems to have been MOSTLY just a lot of moving people into place. It ended just as there was a lot of BIG action about to happen, and there were characters who'd been left in peril in the previous book that didn't get a mention here. But I suppose that it's inevitable that there are entries in a series that are just first halves of what may have been originally a single much larger book. I suspect that the next book will probably have a bit more action and hopefully some resolution for poor Mat & Olver (and others). ( )

My audio read of this series continues. Even though I only finished this a week or so ago, I had to go back to the synopis to remember what happened.
I am enjoying the series more now although all the things I have disliked since the beginning are still there. But having now invested so much time in this, you remain interested because of that. But the level of personal violence is discomforting - all that spanking! The TV series will surely have to remove that - our societal opinions on this have changed so much. ( )

“How do you know when a woman wants to kill you?” Rand mused.

“When she knows your name?” Dobraine did not sound as if he were joking.


For all the time it took them to find the Bowl of the Winds in [b:A Crown of Swords|13890|A Crown of Swords (Wheel of Time, #7)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1358542379s/13890.jpg|791214], they certainly get to using it quickly enough 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]. It's the first of a series of truly epic uses of the One Power in the series, magic use that actually feels epic on a scale I've only rarely seen in other series.

Unfortunately after that, a lion's share of the book is taken up by Perrin going to Ghealdan to stop the Prophet of the Dragon. Along the way he collects a couple queens (and somehow no one notices the one?) and right at the end Faile is kidnapped by the Shaido--I did mention we weren't done with them.... Both are interesting enough plotlines, but already take too long just in this book, let alone what I know is coming ahead. Sure, it's not entirely fair judging this book on ones yet to come... ¯_(ツ)_/¯

On the other hand, Egwene's plotline in this book is actually pretty cool. I generally enjoy scenes of an underdog leveraging little known rules to gain the upper hand. And now she's actually on equal enough footing to make the conflicts with the rebel Hall interesting. I expect good things from that plotline.

And then finally, there's the final battle. Rand and the Asha'man, once again attempting to drive the Seanchan back, this time using the sa'angreal Callandor, the Sword That is Not a Sword. Unfortunately, it has something of a flaw and Rand manage to kill many of his own men. It's certainly an intense scene. Oy.

And then to add insult to injury, on Rand's return to Cairhien, rogue Asha'man led by Dashiva tear apart the palace in an attempt to kill him. Oy oy.

Overall, a solid beginning and end, but a slog in the middle. There's probably a comparison to the Wheel of Time / the Pattern here. ( )

This is the novel I stopped on a long time ago. The problems with this one make it... unbearable.

Despite being largely about the women, these women do, say, and think ridiculous things on nearly every page they are present. Even Cadsuane, supposedly one of the longest lived and strongest Aes Sedai, thinks about spanking all the time. I'm pretty sure many a fantasy could be fulfilled by the amount of spanking these women think about doing. And so much smoothing of skirts and hair pulling. Because you spend so much time with them, you can't help but constantly be reminded that Robert Jordan had literally no idea how to write about women. What was just the occasional WTF in previous novels happened on nearly every page.

Then, nothing happens. This can be done well. Seinfeld, after all, was a show about nothing and it was brilliant. Alas, this is not that. You could have cut this thing down to a quarter of its size and it still would have had filler. Then suddenly everything happens at once, in the final chapters: a kidnapping, battles, madness, betrayal. "The book should have just started here," you think, "and these pieces needed far more detail." And you'd be right. And then it's over. ( )
