My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Things are starting to pick up. The Dark One is full on slapping the world, not just touching. Long held plot lines through the series are coming to fruition. The lines are being drawn for the Last Battle and I was a little surprised at some of them. Everything isn’t tied up in a neat bow of course. There are still some things to work out, like how is Rand going to convince everyone that his plan going into the Last Battle isn’t sheer madness? How are the loyalists in the Black Tower going to get themselves organized and to the Last Battle? I guess we’ll see as the Last Battle draws near.
