Great fantasy series where women finally have many prominent roles. I have read them all. This series truly will not disappoint.
this book is ninth in a great series that will not disappoint you. If you are a sci fi fantasy fan and you haven't read these, I highly suggest you start!
A wonderful continuation of Rand's story. He finally has to face all three of the ladies in his life and is bonded to them. Perrin is still searching for his love as Mat finally meets his.
Actually this book is just "good" not fantastic as are most of the volumes in this series. So you need to read it for continuity. In large part it chronicles Perrin's attempt to rescue Faile from renegade Aiel. Jordan's stories move along glacially and that also hurts the book's contribution to the series. There is a place, indeed many places, for Jordan's attention to detail, describing people and places, but this ain't one of them. This needed to be an action book, not an establishing story. It fits in well with the rest of the series, but don't expect the sense of wonder of earlier volumes as the young people learned they had until-then unknown powers and are key players in the future of the world.
This book was a bit better than the last two but it still contains way too much detail that does nothing for the story.
