    Usually my reviewing style includes a plot synopsis at the beginning, but through experience I ve come to the realisation that it s most often a huge advantage when the book actually has a plot.This was essentially Interlude the Book No plot development, no character development, no setting development, no development At all And you don t need to tell me it gets worse I know.The chapters written from the viewpoint of the main protagonists are downright boring Quite the opposite is true Usually my reviewing style includes a plot synopsis at the beginning, but through experience I ve come to the realisation that it s most often a huge advantage when the book actually has a plot.This was essentially Interlude the Book No plot development, no character development, no setting development, no development At all And you don t need to tell me it gets worse I know.The chapters written from the viewpoint of the main protagonists are downright boring Quite the opposite is true for the chapters written from the viewpoint of minor characters, like the Forsaken, the Seanchan and the Black Ajah But unfortunately, there are so depressingly few of them.Then we have people being stupid, other people being incomprehensibly stupid, the development of what has the potential to be the worst love plot in fantasy, and Faile being Faile that s the worst part.And the only real redeeming quality of the book is called Cadsuane Melaidhrin.The only reason this doesn t get two stars is because it s a Wheel of Time book and it allows me to spendtime in this wonderful world But if I were to be objective, it s definitely closer to two stars than three.At least I read most of the book in less than twenty four hours That must count for something Though the book was only 672 pages, which is barely even a novella by Robert Jordan s standards.Fortunately, I still love the series a lotthan when I was reading the first three books And this changes nothing Wheel of Time reviews 1 The Eye of the World 2 The Great Hunt 3 The Dragon Reborn 4 The Shadow Rising 5 The Fires of Heaven 6 Lord of Chaos 7 A Crown of Swords 8 The Path of Daggers 9 Winter s Heart 10 Crossroads of Twilight 11 Knife of Dreams 12 The Gathering Storm 13 Towers of Midnight 14 A Memory of Light

    Month 8 and Book 8 go hand in hand with my buds at Buddies Books BaublesThis will forever be THE BOOK WITHOUT MAT.When The Wheel of Time began there was Rand, Perrin and Mat I didn t even like Mat very much It wasn t until maybe book 3 or 4 seriously they start to run together that his character became semi interesting Now he is one of my favorites and he is missing the entire book.Instead we have Aes Sedea shenanigans Really I m still of the opinion that if you can channel the on Month 8 and Book 8 go hand in hand with my buds at Buddies Books BaublesThis will forever be THE BOOK WITHOUT MAT.When The Wheel of Time began there was Rand, Perrin and Mat I didn t even like Mat very much It wasn t until maybe book 3 or 4 seriously they start to run together that his character became semi interesting Now he is one of my favorites and he is missing the entire book.Instead we have Aes Sedea shenanigans Really I m still of the opinion that if you can channel the one power if you are a man you slowly go mad, but if you are a woman you loose all common sense Most of the Aes Sedea plot line drives me crazy and so since we spend so much time with it this time I just spent most of the book frustrated.I m not going to spend a ton of time on this review because this was my least favorite installment.For Rand there are some good developments or reveals Hopefully he won t go traipsing off without Min or the Maidens again But chances are he is a woolheaded fool and will make that same mistake again.Perrin might have finally figured out his wife with a little outside help I m glad because that meant I figured her out too and now some of the confusing bits of the last books makesense.Finally Finally we have meetings and do things with the Sea Folk I feel like I have been waiting forever for them to enter the story.And last but not least it was actually one of my favorite things of the story there is the reunion of Lan and Nynaeve THANK YOU I feel like they have been apart for 5 books grumbles probably because they have.All in all it didn t seem like a lot actually happened in this book until the last 80 pages as usual and it actually ended on a few cliff hanger situations But I m marching forward and so I m on to book 9 for September

    ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.The best thing I can say about The Path of Daggers is that it is significantly shorter than the last few novels have been only 700 pages mass market paperback compared to the 900 1100 page novels that have preceded it There is much less of the repetitive backstory I guess Mr Jordan finally realized that new readers aren t jumping in at this point.However, that s not to say that there are 700 pages of plot here, either For again, most of the pages ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature.The best thing I can say about The Path of Daggers is that it is significantly shorter than the last few novels have been only 700 pages mass market paperback compared to the 900 1100 page novels that have preceded it There is much less of the repetitive backstory I guess Mr Jordan finally realized that new readers aren t jumping in at this point.However, that s not to say that there are 700 pages of plot here, either For again, most of the pages are devoted to minutia such as nearly every word spoken during one of Elayne s 3 hour long rides, every thought that Perrin has while walking around his camp, etc Most of the significant action is squeezed into the last couple of chapters The story is still interesting, but The Path of Daggers doesn t advance it far enough.But what s annoying me most is that the female WOT characters are the cattiest bunch of women I ve ever encountered Supposedly the Aes Sedai are dignified, cool headed, and calm, but yet we see them constant bickering, back biting, squabbling, thinking about their positions relative to others, and worried about what everyone else is thinking For such powerful women, they are continually showing their shock, getting into petty disagreements, trying to out wit each other, widening their eyes, adjusting their shawls, and smoothing their skirts apparently this is an indication of uneasiness, though I have never actually seen an uneasy woman smoothing her skirt And why the heck are adult women SPANKING each other I find it irritating that women leaders are portrayed this way while the powerful men are portrayed as hard, reserved, and distinguished I m sure that Mr Jordan meant for his female characters to seem strong, but they just come across as bitchy I really can t figure out why they all take each other so seriously ReadRobert Jordan book reviews at Fantasy literature

    This was another fun instalment in the WoT series Just like the last book plot advancement was moving at a snails pace but we did get a few interesting developments and the story was always entertaining It is the characters, Jordan s storytelling, and the sheer size of the world that make this such a great fantasy series.So what actually happened in this 8th WoT book SPOILERS AHEAD Most of our favourite characters went on much as the have been doing for the last few books Egwene She This was another fun instalment in the WoT series Just like the last book plot advancement was moving at a snails pace but we did get a few interesting developments and the story was always entertaining It is the characters, Jordan s storytelling, and the sheer size of the world that make this such a great fantasy series.So what actually happened in this 8th WoT book SPOILERS AHEAD Most of our favourite characters went on much as the have been doing for the last few books Egwene She edged closer to the White Tower with her rebels and continued to grow into her role as Amyrlin Seat I thought this was a good book for her character Nynaeve and Elayne They are still stuck at the hip but the pair did have an eventful book Finally using the Bowl of the Winds and then heading back to Andor for Elayne to make her claim on the Lion Throne Rand It was another action packed book for Rand As well as dealing with the usual political manoeuvrings he had to repel another Seanchan invasion and survive numerous assassination attempts His chapters were probably the most exciting of any character in this book.Perrin He got started on his mission to deal with Masema, the Prophet, and his own group merged with Morgase s group Which provided a ton of amusing moments as she is travelling in disguise Mat OK the guy was totally missing in this instalment Weirdly I never even realized he was gone until I read in a friends review that he had not featured at all in this 8th WoT book Obviously I never missed him That said, things did end in a bit of a cliffhanger in the 7th book with him so I hope he features heavily in the next book The Love Interests Min, Aviendha, and Faile had little to do in this book and at this point in the story their whole reason for being is simply to be love interests for their guys Min actually had a good book She seems a great fit for Rand and was fairly helpful to him throught the story Faile was Faile Aviendha really just tagged along a bit with Elayne and Nynaeve Jordan very much seems to have her character on the shelf for now Minor Characters There were a few but the ones who were the most memorable were Morgase and Siuan The Villains There POV segments are usually short and super interesting and it was no different in this book as we got a glimpse into what the likes of Greandal, Moridin, Sevanna, Eladia, Alviarin, and a few others were up to All in all I thought this was a good addition to the series and I seemed like the story flew by while I was reading it which is always a very positive sign Rating 4.5 stars Audio Note Another great performance from Krammer and Reading

    Book 8 of the Wheel of Time really gets a bad rap Contrary to common wisdom, plenty happens in this book The problem, I think, is that nothing gets resolved Not having any Mat, especially after the cliffhanger at the end of book 7, doesn t help either Is it ridiculous for a fantasy series to still be setting things up 8 books in Especially when that series was supposed to be 6 books long OK, yeah, it is But taken by itself, The Path of Daggers isn t a bad story.Oddly enough, the story b Book 8 of the Wheel of Time really gets a bad rap Contrary to common wisdom, plenty happens in this book The problem, I think, is that nothing gets resolved Not having any Mat, especially after the cliffhanger at the end of book 7, doesn t help either Is it ridiculous for a fantasy series to still be setting things up 8 books in Especially when that series was supposed to be 6 books long OK, yeah, it is But taken by itself, The Path of Daggers isn t a bad story.Oddly enough, the story begins with an event that could easily have been used instead as a climax in book 7 It makes some sense for this event to happen in this book, however, since it has broad implications affecting every other plotline The core plotlines of the book follow Rand and Egwene, who I m beginning to notice are actually paired off quite often despite a lack of specific plot crossover I guess that Jordan guy knew what he was planning after all.The biggest issue with book 8 isn t the fact that it doesn t resolve existing plotlines, it s that it doesn t resolve the plotlines introduced during the book The stage is set for book 9, where things mercifully do begin to resolve, but the sheer number of cliffhangers in this book is staggering Without going into details, the book ends after setting up a siege, a succession, a betrayal, and a capture Add in Mat s cliffhanger, and that s six times the usual frustration Just be glad you don t need to wait for the next book any All that said, this is an enjoyable and well written story We have epic battles, surprise appearances by objects of Power, even some amusing light shed on a few relationships But the three Aes Sedai related stories really take the spotlight here perhaps another reason the book isn t all that popular Egwene finally begins openly asserting her power, while Elayne sets into motion significant events on both sides of the world Best of all, seemingly minor Aes Sedai begin an important and long overdue witch hunt that is completely satisfying.There is one particular theme of this book that really changed the series for me I didn t like book 8 anythan most people the first time I read it, but I have since come to actually like the much maligned Aes Sedai, and the reason starts here So far they ve proven arrogant, often incompetent, and rarely live up to their reputation When Egwene proposes a major change in their philosophy, I think most readers would agree with her However, it is at this point that you really begin to respect the Aes Sedai compared to the various other groups of channelers They have been humbled at every turn, but they are the ones who ve held the world together for 3,000 years, and that s no coincidence Not only does their fate begin to change here, it s become increasingly clear that their largest problems aren t actually their fault.What it comes down to is that book 8 is a lotpalatable now that book 9 and 10, 11, and 12 are readily available Reading a book filled with cliffhangers, even if it does have a few holy shit moments, is not something you want to do a year before the next one arrives In many ways, book 8 breaks the implied promise of the author, that the story will be further along at the end than at the beginning In truth it is, but it certainly doesn t feel like it without the context of later events But stick with it, because the series is finally hitting its peak, and things are about to start changing

    This is one of the slowest books of the series Usually Mat saves the day even when nobody else does anything of value in a book, but this time Mat is not here This is especially infuriating considering that his plot line ended in a huge cliffhanger in the previous book Perrin s absence in book 5 is hardly noticeable Mat s absence here is, especially considering the slow moving overall plot.It would be unfair to say that nothing at all happens here I counted four fairly major events in the b This is one of the slowest books of the series Usually Mat saves the day even when nobody else does anything of value in a book, but this time Mat is not here This is especially infuriating considering that his plot line ended in a huge cliffhanger in the previous book Perrin s absence in book 5 is hardly noticeable Mat s absence here is, especially considering the slow moving overall plot.It would be unfair to say that nothing at all happens here I counted four fairly major events in the book which to be fair is not that much for 500 pages especially considering that readers expected two of them to happen for a really long time.In the beginning of the book Elaine was struggling to keep a leadership role with her motley crew Sea Folks, Aes Sedai, the Kin, and lovesick Nynaeve The daughter queen was constantly in the bad mood as a result, but this part was fairly amusing and this particular subplot contained two out of the four major events I mentioned above both expected at least one book ago.Egwene in rebel Aes Sedai camp continues manipulating others while trying not to be manipulated What really bothers me about this whole situation is that everybody is so busy with these games that nobody cares to notice that one character really looks very suspicious and must be at least a Darkfriend she actually happens to be a Forsaken As it is, she keeps killing people right under everybody s noses without anybody paying attention In contrast, the White Tower Aes Sedai actually created a secret group of Black Ajah hunters which developed its methods of detecting them and has its first catch I found myself sympathizing with the White Tower in this issue to my complete surprise.Perrin starts the most annoying subplot of the series here Fortunately the worst part of it comes in the last chapter which means we do not get to experience it here, it will drag on and on without moving anywhere in the next two books.Rand slowly goes mad He is also the most misunderstood character so far He has to act alone for the most part which brings up arrogance in his dealings with people His plot line happens to be the most exciting one with a lot of action.This book is not bad by any means at no point I was bored by it while reading The problem with it is that after you finish the realization comes that not much happens here I gave 3 stars to worse books this one only gets such a low rating only because it is not up to the standards of the previous ones This review is a copy paste of my BookLikes one

    Monthly buddy read well it wasstalking this time since I couldn t really participate in the discussion with the fantasy fanatics over at BBB.This keeps on getting better and better I can t get enough of this world There re simply no words to describe this One of the major plotlines from the past several books finally found it s resolution the Bowl of Winds was finally used and the weather is on it s way to normal Though I guess that going from extreme heat and drought to torre Monthly buddy read well it wasstalking this time since I couldn t really participate in the discussion with the fantasy fanatics over at BBB.This keeps on getting better and better I can t get enough of this world There re simply no words to describe this One of the major plotlines from the past several books finally found it s resolution the Bowl of Winds was finally used and the weather is on it s way to normal Though I guess that going from extreme heat and drought to torrent rains and snows probably created some pretty awful problems and the consequences will reverberate throughout the world for quite awhile With that sudden turn the people can say goodbye to whatever crops had survived the drought Still screwing over the Dark One s plans is always a good thing And with that out of the way Her Royal Irresponsibility Elayne Trakand can finally get her behind back where she belongs and do what she was trained all her life to do And she did But instead of being thankful to Rand who busted his a trying to keep Andor as safe as possible, she threw a tantrum and view spoiler ripped his banners from the Palace in Caemlyn hide spoiler Ungrateful brat I honestly have no idea why Rand likes her The thing that annoys me most about her little snit is that just as pretty much all the problems in these books it s based on misunderstanding But instead of talking with each other the characters jump to conclusions and spend entire books wondering why their relationships fail Talk to each other people Sometimes it feels like they speak different languages Rand s getting crazier with each book but I can t help but feel sorry for him He s just a farmboy that got caught in a situation he never imagined And he s trying so hard to do the right thing I admire his dedication even if he screws upoften than not when it comes to politics He s biggest problem is his inability to clearly communicate what he means I m so glad than Min is there for him Unlike the rest of the women around him she actually helps him cope with all that responsibility Cadsuane and the rest of the Aes Sedai around him picked the worst possible way to approach him and try to get him to listen As a result they drive him farther into the madness It s sad to see women, who should know better act like complete idiots.The Asha man are becoming a bigger problem and if Rand doesn t establish his dominance over them soon he s going to face an army he won t be able to defeat Part of the problem is the taint but a bigger part is Taim Rand should have never had left the man so much leeway The inevitable did happen and some of the Asha man betrayed Rand and I wonder if Taim was behind it He speaks the right words but his actions scream resentment I was hoping that Logain will be a countering force in the Black Tower but so far we only know he s there I guess that s a start view spoiler I laughed my head off when Logain so easily defeated the Aes Sedai Elaida sent to destroy the Black Tower hide spoiler I missed Mat in this book After the event in ACoS I though that he ll have a bigger role here but he was MIA throughout the entire book I know he s alive but I hope he s well And that he ll show up in the next novel Perrin had an interesting plot here and it seems he s going to be neck deep in trouble again very soon Personally I don t think he should have abide by Masema s demand view spoiler and just dragged the man to Rand through a gateway hide spoiler He should have simply said that it s what The Dragon Reborn had ordered and Masema would have had no choice Instead now he ll be stuck with a rabid dog, one who consorts with the view spoiler Seanchan view spoiler If that s not a recipe for disaster I don t know what is And with view spoiler Faile a prisoner of the Shaido hide spoiler we might get to see the wolf s teeth in action As a whole TPoD is a slower book than the previous but now that I m so emotionally invested in the story and the characters I don t mind at all Part of me wantsaction but another part wants things to remain a bit slow so I can havetime in this incredible world hide spoiler hide spoiler
