Rand's story continues on as the 8th book in the wheel of time series continues. Worth reading. A little slow in the beginning, but the ending makes it worth it.

Once more, Robert Jordan pulls you into this series and holds you until the end. You know you must read the next one to find out what happens next. I've loved every one of these books in this series and will probably be much disappointed when the series finally ends.

The 8th in a series of 11 plus a prequel, the journey of Rand, Mat and Perrin continues. With the Last Battle drawing nearer everyday, this book will keep you on your toes.

I love this series. Every book has been amazing. Where most fantasy writers create a country RJ has created a globe filled with different cultures, customs and languages.

By this point, the series is starting to drag; it would be better if Jordan stopped introducing new plot without wrapping up old.

Robert Jordan's bestselling Wheel of Time epic is one of the most popular fantasy series of all time for a reason. Jordan's world is rich and complex, and he's assembled an endearing, involving core of characters while mapping out an ambitious and engaging story arc.
But with the previous book, Crown of Swords, and now with Path of Daggers, the series is in a bit of a holding pattern. Path continues the halting gait of the current plot line: Rand is still on the brink of losing it, all the while juggling the political machinations around him and again taking to the field against the Seanchan. The rest of the Two Rivers kids and company don't seem to be moving much faster. Egwene continues to slowly consolidate her hold as the "true" Amyrlin (finally getting closer to Tar Valon and the inevitable confrontation with Elaida), and Nynaeve and Elayne keep on wandering toward the Lion Throne, again on the run from the Seanchan. Mat Cauthon is barely mentioned, and fellow ta'veren Perrin keeps busy with politics in Ghealdan. The ending does provide promise, though, that book nine might match the pace and passion of the previous books.

If you're already hooked, you could sooner overcome a weave of Compulsion than avoid picking up a copy of Path of Daggers. But if you're new to the series, start at the beginning with the engrossing, much-better-paced Eye of the World. --Paul Hughes

On going with more characters introduced. Clarifies some issues as I get ready to ready the next book in the series.
I am reading this series for the second time and am still fully enjoying the adventures of 'The Dragon Reborn'.
