This recent spate of questions about individual books in The Wheel of Time is really stupid; it doesn’t make sense to read any of them, except the first one, on its own. If you are already invested in the series and have read book 6 (Lord of Chaos. If you are already invested in the series and have read book 6 (Lord of Chaos), then book 7 is going to be disappointing the first time around. It’s shorter, less happens, and the big Forsaken fight at the end (you know, like the one that’s at the end of every book) is kind of weird and unsatisfying. But then you do a reread after finishing all 14 books.

There can be no health in us, nor any good thing grow, for the land is one with the Dragon Reborn, and he one with the land. Soul of fire, heart of stone, in pride he conquers, forcing the proud to yield. He calls upon the mountains to kneel, and the seas to give way, and the very skies to bow. Pray that the heart of stone remembers tears, and the soul of fire, love. тАФ From a much-disputed translation of The Prophecies of the Dragon by the poet Kyera Termendal, of Shiota, believed to have.

The Wheel of Time and I have an interesting relationship. Almost all of the characters totally infuriate me but I love the writing, cultures, world building and overall plots so even when in this book everything moves at a snail’s pace and almost nothing really happens plot wise I’m still thoroughly entertained and enjoy most of the story.

But here is what I’ve learned during my time with the Wheel.

❶ - The Wheel Weaves as the Wheel Wills.

What does this mean exactly? Well it pretty much means that at any time anything can happen. Especially with Ta’veren about to increase the chances that the pattern will adjust to their needs at anytime.

***“Untamed men are often the most interesting. To talk to.”
A finger outlined his lips. “An untamed rogue who travels with Aes Sedai, a ta’veren who, I think, makes them a little afraid. Uneasy, at the least. It takes a man with a strong liver to make Aes Sedai uneasy. How will you bend the Pattern in Ebou Dar, just Mat Cauthon?”***

❷ - There will be a prophecy or five and it will probably not go exactly how you think.

***“The White Tower will be whole again, except for remnants cast out and scorned,
whole and stronger than ever. Rand al’Thor will face the Amyrlin Seat and know her anger. The Black Tower will be rent in blood and fire, and sisters will walk its grounds. This I Foretell.”***

Although most of this one could go like I think, the part about the Black Tower is still very up in the air.

❸ - If you are from the Two Rivers then you are more likely to distrust the people you grew up with and completely trust someone who is most likely a darkfriend. Seriously this is that part that frustrates me the most. Rand, Mat and Perrin were best of friends growing up. Thick as thieves all of their lives. Now each is Ta’vern and has a specific part to play in the final battles to come and they are more likely to distrust each other than to try to help each other out. Actually often times when they do help each other it is by complete accident. And the women they grew up with Egwene and Nynaeve it is the same issue. You would almost think they were enemies the way they all treat one another instead of people who were close in a small village and grew up together.

But throw a darkfriend or Forsaken in the midst of them and that is almost always the person they decide to trust with a ridiculous amount of information and power.

❹ - If you can channel the one power then you lose some form of common sense. I seriously think that there is only a small section of Aes Sedai that I like. For the most part they seem far too arrogant and self-serving to actually get anything done. Even the ones I do/did like tend to go to extremes and I really want to smack them.

***Mixing with Aes Sedai was too much like wading the streams in the Waterwood near to the Mire. However peaceful the surface, currents beneath could snatch you off your feet.***

❺ - The details for the cultures and places is going to be fantastic and rich. You will definitely see not only the great differences but also the nuances between the Aiel, Domani, the Sea Folk and Seanchan. There are rich histories and reasons that each culture evolved as it did. This is really Jordan’s strong suit. He completely struggles a little with interpersonal relationships but the world building is impeccable.

Even though this book barely moved any portion of the plot forward I still enjoyed most of it. There were a lot of great parts and fantastic characters. I did have a huge problem with one section thought and I’m totally going to go off on it for a second.

As I said before, Jordan struggles with interpersonal relationships. Often for our main characters the jump from just meeting to being in love is really short and has very little page time dedicated to the buildup of an actual relationship. But in this book he really missed his mark with the character development he was trying to give Mat.

What I believe Jordan was trying to do. Mat is a bit of a skirt chaser but we always get the sense that the skirts want to be chased and everyone is having a good time. But when Jordan tried to turn the tables on Mat and have a woman in power go after his attentions it is supposed to come off as a little funny and haha Mat how does it feel to have the tables turned. This is needed to set him up to be more receptive to the Daughter of the Nine Moons who he was prophesized to marry eventually. It was supposed to be cute and maybe a little funny What actually happened or at least how I saw it was totally and completely rape. Look I get that isn’t what he really wanted to come across but that is totally how I saw it. The Queen Tylin takes a liking to Mat and decides he is going to be her lover. She tries to get him alone, she limits what the kitchens will give him as food, she ambushes him in his rooms and when he tries to turn he down and move her away setting his hands on her she pulls her knife and there is a fade to black scene. The next day Mat is ashamed, wants to cry and doesn’t want anyone else to know. There is no mention that he loved it and wants to be with her. He acts like he was a victim and tries to avoid her at all costs.

It was very poorly portrayed and if it was the man on the other end it would definitely totally be rape without question.

If I didn’t think that it was totally not his intention to portray it in a comical sense I might have given up right there. Especially after how Elayne and Nynaeve treat the situation. But I’ll give Jordan a pass since all of the romantic entanglements have been handled almost as equally poorly.

Best New Friendship Award - Goes to Mat and Birgetta. I love those two on page together. I’m glad Mat has one woman in his life that he likes to hang out with and isn’t interested in kissing.

Non-Evil Character I want to push off a Cliff - This still goes to Elayne. The haughty daughter heir still drives me a bit crazy. She is a bit better with Avienda around to teach her Toh but I still don’t like her.

Overall

I’m still in it to win it and I was warned there would be a few slower books so I am prepared for them. Even though my review is a bit critical I really do like most of the characters when they are not being stupid to one another and like the intensity of the bad guys and the overall march to kill the dark one eventually. The Cultures, Magic and Mayhem make this series.

I very much enjoy serial stories. This one is mammoth! I think the author has moved a little slowly, but mostly, the reason I like it vs. loving it, is that I think he's been a little sloppy with the female characters. The story definitely wraps around the female characters; their persistence at not learning from their mistakes, their haughty and self-absorbed characters, and their very high self-beliefs make them tiring to read about. The central male characters aren't much better either.

The author manages to introduce a new obstacle, or new magic, or new opponent in every book. The story is very well thought out and very well devised. I'm enjoying that aspect very much. I just hope his character development improves, cause it's a long road to go without that. It's almost like the focus is on the story with limited attention paid to character development. So. Having said all that, I'm still hooked and have gone on to the 8th book, which is really the 9th book because there was a prequel written that is numbered "0".

Not only was Robert Jordan so in love with his own writing that he could write pages of descriptions that leave the mind numb, in A Crown of Swords Jordan decides to advance the plot only a tiny bit. How does he do this? By having a huge portion of A Crown of Swords describe the events that took place in Lord of Chaos from the vantage point of other characters. Seriously. He is most egregious about this in the Egwene point of view. So let's get this review started.

A Crown of Swords has three primary plot lines. The first concerns Rand and his return from Dumai's Wells to discover that Cairhien has been taken over by Colavere. The diplomatic maneuvering that results from this action goes on for hundreds of pages. Sadly, the Perrin-Faile plotline is still entwined with the Rand one and we see the most heinous Faile. But not too much. Still, this is not the only development for Rand. We also watch him make preparations for an attack against the Forsaken Samael. And that attack is probably among the least satisfying of any of the confrontations with the Forsaken. And if you remember the pattern I described in my previous review you should figure out what happens to Sammael.

The second plot line is more interesting and benefits from occurring over four straight chapters. Here we witness Egwene consolidating control over the Aes Sedai in Salidar. With the help of Siuan and Leane, newly restored to being Aes Sedai when Nynaeve healed severing in the previous book, Egwene makes a good job of beginning to hold sway over the cantankerous Aes Sedai.

The third plot line is by far the most interesting. For fans of Mat, you will like that a plurality of this book is told from his point of view. In Ebou Dar he accompanies Nynaeve and Elayne in their search for a ter'angreal called the Bowl of Winds. With it they hope to be able to loosen the grip of the Dark One on the weather of the world. During this portion of the book we also discover more about the history of the Aes Sedai and learn even more about the Sea Folk. As an aside, I can't decide who is more annoying - the Aes Sedai or the Sea Folk. I do wonder, despite the number of strong female characters, if Jordan was not a misogynist. It's also during this portion of the book that my favorite scenes for both Elayne and for Nynaeve occur in back to back chapters. Without those scenes this book would probably only rate three stars.

And in the background, through the points of view of some minor characters who I won't bore you by in this review (since you will have to trudge through their chapters) we see that the Seanchan have returned and are making significant conquests along the western and southern coasts of Randland.

So I have been keeping track of sniffs in the books because Jordan has his women sniff way too much. Happily this book was roughly 100 pages less in length than Lord of Chaos so there were less sniffs.
