5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first half of the series., 28 Oct. 2009
This review is from: The Gathering Storm (Hardcover)
I have read the Wheel of Time books avidly for 10 years and have being waiting for this volume for 4 years and it was worth the wait. When I heard that Brandon Sanderson would be replacing Robert Jordan I was sceptical about the final book as I did not feel it would flow narratively and I was further worried when they split the final volume into 3 separate books. However my fears were for nothing as the book flows well from start to finish and as a fan of the series I could not spot any obvious parts written by one of the other author.

The plot of the book is excellent with the plot lines for Egwene and Rand advancing a great deal. The plot for Egwene is especially good and gets the book feeling like the first few in the series. The main flaw with the book is the plots for Perrin and Mat are not advanced a great deal but that was to be expected with the split in publication so that there would be a resolution at the end of the this book instead of leaving it completely hanging. The book has some great scenes including a brilliantly orchestrated battle sequence. We also finally get to find out what side Verin is on and it still leaves you wondering about her.

My final conclusion about this book is that it is amongst my favourites for the series and that I can't wait for the Towers of Midnight to come out next year.

I could hardly agree more, except I would rephrase "One of my favourites" to simply favourite. I thought this book was amazing. I couldn't put it down and I ended up staying up 2 nights (not after each other) when parts of the book was too exciting to put away. The part about Verin was simply shocking. Of all the things that could happen that was one of those I least imagined. Makes me think that she was never really bad, but simply a double crossing double crosser. There's a reason this book got mostly 5 stars, and my vote is set on at least 10 stars out of 5.
