Questo "capitolo" l'ho trovato a tratti un po' lento e con molte "ripetizioni" dai precedenti libri. ( )

It was great--I felt like everybody was back in fighting form, whereas they had been a rather dispirited bunch in the last book. Lots of action: battles, traveling, sneaking around and spying. New friends were made, new powers discovered, old powers honed and developed, and enemies bested. A rousing good read! On to the 5th book! ( )

Excellent epic fantasy series with suspense, strong characters and expansive world-building.

Highly recommended. ( )

i liked this installment a lot more than the last. I would like to finish the rest of this series by the end of the year so... ( )

It's nice to see Perrin getting some screen time, but it's been four books now and I'm drowning in emotional constipation, here. Every characters seems to amplify their problems - and their sense of alienation from the others - by festering over things and sharing nothing. Rand won't tell anybody what he's planning. Moiraine won't divulge her schemes. Mat won't speak up about his fears. Perrin can't tell Faile how he feels, or that he's worried about her. Elayne sends mixed signals to Rand. Egwene... And Nynaeve. Christ, even Lan is a walking pressure cooker of unexpressed inner angst. I expect this sort of self-oriented world view from the Forsaken, and the Seanchan, but every single human being in their entire world? Really?

Sigh. Well, at least the world building is interesting. ( )

Epigraph
The Shadow shall rise across the world, and darken every land, even to the smallest corner, and there shall be neither Light nor safety. And he who shall be born of the Dawn, born of the Maiden, according to Prophecy, he shall stretch forth his hands to catch the Shadow, and the world shall scream in the pain of salvation. All Glory be to the Creator, and to the Light, and to he who shall be born again. May the Light save us from him.

--from Commentaries on the Karaethon Cycle
Sereine dar Shamelle Motara
Counsel-Sister to Comaelle,
High Queen of Jaramide
(circa 325 AB, the Third Age)
And when the blood was sprinkled on ground where nothing could grow, the Children of the Dragon did spring up, the People of the Dragon, armed to dance with death. And he did call them forth from the wasted lands, and they did shake the world with battle.

--from The Wind of Time by Sulamein so Bhagad
Chief Historian at the Court of the Sun, the Fourth age

First words
The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0812513738, Mass Market Paperback)

The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind.

In Tar Valon, Min sees portents of hideous doom. Will the White Tower itself be broken?

In the Two Rivers, the Whitecloaks ride in pursuit of a man with golden eyes, and in pursuit of the Dragon Reborn.

In Cantorin, among the Sea Folk, High Lady Suroth plans the return of the Seanchan armies to the mainland.

In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve.

Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn.....
