My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed following Nynaeve, Elyane and Aviendha’s plot from Ebou Dar to the Farm, using the Bowl of the Winds and then running back to Camlyn. Rand scares me more and more with each new book. The Power being sick and unwieldy scares me as well. What else is going to go wrong? I love that Elias is back with Perrin. He’s one of my favorite characters. Also, poor Faile being captured by the Shaido! I’m so glad that Egwene has wrested some control away from the Hall and marched on Tar Valon. I wasn’t really caught up in the battle against Seanchan this time. Just… meh. Overall, the plot continues to move, but I have to listen to it on my commute. Reading it gets a little tedious as it does move slowly with lots of detail. The detail is beautiful, mind you, but it makes the plot move slowly.
