My favorite Wheel of Time installment so far.

This book had basically four key points of view. Mat, the three Aes Sedai girls, Perrin and company (Moriane, Lan, Zarine), and Rand. Rand's part was very non-existent. Which wasn't necessarily a terrible thing. It's a 14 book series and seeing some other characters shine is very nice. I actually really like the blend of characters and the times chosen to follow them. Zarine was a great new addition to the series, and it's the most romance I've seen in the series yet; which I think is essential for adding dimensions to story. Some of the banter between Perrin and Zarine, and also Lan and Moriane was cool. Mat's part was great, I really enjoyed his character and I'm liking where he's going. He's really shaping up to be awesome. Yet, I think Rand could have had a bit more time. It's like he was the focus of the prophecy and turn of events, but you rarely saw him. I think a scene or two more of him struggling in the woods would have added to what his character had to overcome.

There were some cool new ter'angreal (magical items), and magics used, but I was hoping to see some more bizarre creatures or more of the Death Hounds. Seemed they were too short lived. The wolf thing is really cool and I'm eagerly waiting to see more Liken stuffs.

I didn't like the map they used in this one (it is different than the others), but the few drawings around it were neat.

Well, I'm off to The Shadow Rising =]

Almost 60 years ago a teacher in a small one room school in Northern Ontario read The Hobbit to us a little each day while we waited for the school bus to take us home. It opened a world of wonder. Now, once again I am exploring a wondrous world in the Wheel of Time series. This third book is the best so far, and I look forward to enjoying the rest of the series.

3rd book in the wheel of time series. Very good book and gets going a lot faster then the last one. It's also a bit shorter which makes it an easier read. Really liked how all the storylines came together at the end while still setting up the overall plotting of future books. Would continue to recommend this series but I always have to take a break from the world after each book before jumping back in. Classic fantasy.

The final book in the series is coming out January 2013. I'm madly trying to reread the entire series before then. This one is the next on my list. What a great series! And the new paperback artist is fabulous!

The first three books form a wonderful arc. Without a doubt there is much more ahead (11 books!) but here is the end of the first movement of the symphony. And it in no way disappoints. Characters are not only revealed, but they are in the process of changing. Events progress, characters change-some for the better and some...who can say? As the audience we continue to appreciate why some characters are the way they are, and we see how events and choices are shaping some characters that we already know. Characters make mistakes, but never is it anything less than understandable and through it all the story progresses. Even the audience does not yet see everything, though we see more than any one character, and the balance that Jordan attains between our knowledge and the characters' is wonderful. Really, really good.

A lot of characters chasing after each other and after some time, you think that that is the entire plotline of the story in Book three of the Wheel of time series. Yet, it is thrilling and exciting because you cannot wait to read the next chapter to see if the chasers have caught up with the important figures that get chased yet.
