I thought this book felt really long while reading it, and well, I was right. It’s the longest WoT book of them all.
The beginning didn’t grab me–I’m not a big fan of when the action stays just in one place with a lot of talking. Once it switched to more POVs and more travels, I loved the ride again.
Perrin’s story was great, as always.
I wasn’t too excited about Elayne and Nynaeve before, but they rocked in this book.
This was also perhaps Jordan’s best use of the third-person limited viewpoint, hiding and revealing information to the characters and readers effectively.
Unfortunately, Mat dissapointed me a bit. He was incredible in the last book, carousing around on his own. He became a bit bland and sulky being dragged around.
Getting excited, as I’m another step closer to Brandon Sanderson’s finale of the series! (Which just arrived in the mail. SO PUMPED)
