5.0 out of 5 stars The Wheel of Time turns again..., 5 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Towers Of Midnight: Book 13 of the Wheel of Time (Hardcover)
Towers of Midnight picks up where The Gathering Storm left off, maintaining the much needed greater pace the The Wheel of Time series had started to gather in Knife of Dreams.

Brandon Sanderson proved in TGS that he can more than just fill in for Robert Jordan and although he doesn't quite write with the descriptive finesse of his predecessor, he more than makes up for that with this excellent and thrilling portrayal of the action sequences.

Without giving away any major spoilers, this book focuses predominantly on the development of the 2 ta'veren Perrin and Mat. Sanderson came in for some criticism in TGS particularly with regards to the latter character, but he has captured his personality well in ToM and Perrin's battle with his own inner demons is particularly nicely done - giving a nice staging field for much of the books action. His plot thread kept me constantly hooked.

ToM continues to tie up many of the loose ends that had been left by the earlier books, but the beauty of this book when compared with TGS is that it perhaps poses even more questions - leaving things nicely poised for the finale, A Memory of Light.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, finished it in 2 days which was even quicker than TGS. The only downside is that I have to wait another year again for my final adventure in Randland. Guess I'll just have to go back to the start and read them all again in the interim......
