Although I did enjoy this book, I distinctly missed reading Rand’s point of view. I did enjoy getting to know Perrin more. I think I’m going to like him. I also love the girls’ POV– Nyneave, Elayne and Egwene. I hope I could be as brave as they are. I also enjoyed how the story weaved them all into the same story and location at the end of the book without any of the separate groups knowing about the others coming their direction, except Mat. The Aiel have been interesting to meet and I look forward to learning more about The Dragon’s People. With that said, I do think I’ll pause on this series for a bit and read some other things that I’ve been itching to read.
