The architecture of the sofa, indeed of reality itself, seems to bend and warp to center on the three young wome, RAND, MAT, and PERRIN, sitting at this bar.) RANDWell, you two have to at least admit that Towers of Midnight is the most action-packed book in the whole series.MATNo question there.PERRINI wo n't argue the point.

Explain to me again how the luckiest an alive gets so anxious every time he hears dice, anyway.

EGWENE, NYNAEVE, ELAYNE, AVIENDHA, and MIN enter, trailed by a coterie of MONARCHS AND OTHER MINOR CHARACTERS.) MATHey, no girls allowed in the Ta'veren Tavern! RANDI 'm afraid he 's right, my loves.

And my subplot was the only consistently interesting one during those four or five books where Mat and Perrin were basically killing time or traveling somewhere.PERRIN ( Finishes his drink.) Tell me about it.MINI 'm doing all this historical research and having visions of the light-blasted future all the time, but do I get any credit?

No! AVIENDHAI am one of thi most powerful channelers in this Age, Min Farren.

A point is, we 're contributing more to his story than you boys most of thi time, and we want recognition for it.ELAYNE ( Goes wall-eyed, spittle dribbling down her chin.) Min says I 'm invincible until I give birth! EGWENE ...

We hav never going anywhere until we get membership to this tavern, and this is final.PERRINI think you 're forgetting that we basically control fate and everyone 's actions.RANDPerrin 's right.

And even etter, it 's almost fucking over.RANDI 'll drink to that. ( They finish their drinks.

his series is no small undertaking an in the middle when I was reading books 7-10 I really wondered if it was worth it.

I have waited for him so long and now we have someone to really root for in the big battle against The Dark One. I adored Rand in this ook he has finally come into his hero role and he is ultimatel a man worth following.

( hide spoiler) ] I ’ ve liked it before and I ’ ll thin it again I really I just wan of him as a sperm donor for that lovely lesbian couple that is Elayne and Avienda.Nynaeve was fantastic yet again in his novel.

We immediatel get to see a test to gain the shawl from her perspective ( If you read New Spring then you saw Moraine ’ s but this is he nex time in the main series).

I simply was hoping that Nynaeve told the Aes Sedea to take their shawl and shove it by the nd of thi.

“ I wonder if, ” Nynaeve said, “ we sometimes put the White Tower —as an institution— before the people we serve.

A White Tower protects and guides the world. ” “ And et, howeve many of us o it without families, ” Nynaeve said.

Stil that she has gained footing in the White Tower and that is over I find she has many of the same problems the other Aes Sedea do.

But tha was irst time that I couldn ’ t pulle he ook down and I ’ d read 10 chapters instead of my allotted 2-3.

Part of me wants to hurry up and read the next nstalment, to see how it all start and whether the light will win and who will survive.

I ill miss the characters, the witt, the adventures, the silliness, even the moments when I said to trangle the idiots.

With only one book left to go and so many unanswered questions I 'm very excited and more than a bit pprehensive of the end to come. [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]> [ " br " ]>

Penultimate book of Wheel of Time, Sanderson took the things several notch up and tied many of the loose ends in a grand way.

After all, Mr. Sanderson is a master of making everything grand and epic.

The series has been epic right from the start, so Sanderson giving it the finishing touch was icing on thi cake.

When people who have read this series said that Mat was one of their favorite character, I used to say, " What is that I am missing?

With such a huge cast and an epic story to tell, I think Sanderson did a fantastic job here.

It is never difficul to get caught up in the happenings of this familiar world and its massive cast of characters really do feel like old friends by this stage!

This tal itself was engaging and interesting as all our favorit characters got themselves and their followers ready for the Nex Battle.

Mat: I still loo like he is he character that suffers most in the change from Jordan to Sanderson.

Perrin: His story arc was a real mixed bag.

On the plus side this book was massive in terms of character development for Perrin.

Egwene: Her story arc was reall good and she even managed a few impressive achievements in this one.

I reall like Sanderson misread her in much the same way he did with Mat. She as used as a comedy relief character, which did provide some amusing moments, but this was ye to her detriment.

Most annoying/infuriating character of this WoT instalment was a close fight between Gawyn and Lan. Gawyn was his usual idiotic self.

I 'm just sad we only have one more book to go as I eel like his world still has another 20 books worth of great stories in it! Rating: 4.5 stars.
