4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Fires of Heaven, 22 July 2011
This review is from: The Fires Of Heaven: Book 5 of the Wheel of Time (Kindle Edition)
The fifth book in the Wheel of Time series continues the story of Rand al'Thor, The Dragon Reborn and his childhood friend, Mat Cauthon. In the previous book Rand was named the One Who Comes with Dawn, the chief of chiefs by the Aeil, a people as hard as the harsh wastelands where they live. The prophecy of the One Who Comes with Dawn is that he will break the Aeil, yet everything in their culture and tradition says that they must follow him. The book opens with the battle of Cairhein, the city is besieged by Couladin, an Aeil claiming to be the real One Who Comes with the Dawn, and his clan, the Shaido. The battle progresses giving Mat Cauthon his first unwanted opportunity to step out of the Dragon Reborn's shadow and proves to be a great general. Also, the story follows Nynaeve and Elayne's journey with a travelling circus. It is quite satisfying to see Nynaeve being brought down to Earth, but the number of times it is done seems to be a little harsh. The book ends on an epic boss battle but on some small issues disappoints (can't say without spoiling the end.
The writing is just as strong as the previous books and the characters seem to be coming more to terms with their lot in life and thus are able to move forward with their humongous destinies. Its probably my favourite book so far in the series. So, if you have read the previous books, then this one will most definately satisfy.
