So I am finally done the 10th book of the Wheel Of Time by Robert Jordan

822 pages of fun

This book picks up with Matt rescuing who he now knows is the Daughter of the Nine Moons, the girl he is supposed to marry along with several Aes Sedai. He helps them escape hidden away in a travelling circus and hides out from the Seanchan

Perrin continues on his quest to rescue his wife and finds himself at Ebou Dar a town of the walking dead. Things are not going very well in his hunt for his wife.

All the while Rand who shows up very briefly in this book is still recovering from cleansing of the Taint on Saidin.

With Egwene’s siege of Tar Valon both her group of Aes Sedai as well as the red Ajah have decided that they need to bond Rand’s Ashaman as warders but have no idea how to approach this issue due to a severe lack of trust between the 2 groups. She opens negotiations with Elaida as a stall tactic while trying to figure our what she needs to do.

This is going to be a short review as I am trying to write this while working and dealing with a cold. yuck.

Anyway I found that this volume of Wheel of Time did not have much in the way of overall story or plot progression. Though a few important events happened I did not find much in the way of advancement over all. It seemed like much of the story revolved around people wondering what was going on with the beacon of the one power that was used to cleanse the taint on saidan

Nynaeve was non-existent in this volume effectively with Elayne and Rand making some brief appearances. I liked seeing what they were up to but I do not feel that they needed to be in this volume. Of course if they were not I would Likely be complaining that they were not there at all. That tends to be the way I work.

I did enjoy it over all however and look forward to reading the remaining books in the series.

I give this volume 7/10 book worms

 

ps sorry for the short review, I just don’t seem to have it in me to write a normal length review this time around.
