I DID IT! I finally finished the Wheel of Time series 3 years after I started it. Now, understand there were many Book Club picks and the Read Harder Challenge last year that put the completion of the series on hold multiple times. So my tardiness is not because it was not entertaining. On the contrary, this book and the series as a whole was highly entertaining and full of adventure. This whole last book was an extended battle, so there was certainly no shortage of twists and turns and surprises. Of course since the whole thing was a battle, Matt, Perrin and Rand played a big role and the Blue Battle Ajah of the White Tower and, therefore, Egwene. All of our favorite characters make at least a brief appearance to take their final bows and wrap up their storylines. Everything came to a satisfying ending, although not how I expected. Certainly not everyone in a battle can have a happily ever after, but at least some of the bad guys get a happily NEVER after. So all in all, definitely recommend this book and the series.
