maps:

Westlands



Tar Valon



My books don't seem to have maps (apart from the main map of the Westlands) from this point on.

I just finished The Dragon Reborn, the story is getting better with each book.
I hope I can wait until next month for book 4 ;-)

>1 humouress: Thanks for putting these up, Nina!

>4 FAMeulstee: Glad to hear you're liking them, Anita! By the way, I just noticed the pic of you and Frank on your profile. I love your hair!

I finished The Dragon Reborn back in June. It's probably unfortunate that I'm reading the Realm of the Elderlings series at the same time I'm reading this one. I think I might like it if I didn't have Robin Hobb's books to compare them too. I'm just on the edge of my seat with Hobb's series, wanting to read more and more. Fool's Fate which I finished in August was absolutely wonderful, a total page-turner. There's not as much world-building in the Hobb's books, they are very much more character-driven, but in each new book there are new things to learn about the main characters. I'm just so invested in those characters, they have come so much more alive to me and I just don't feel the same about Jordan's characters. I really want to like this series, but it honestly feels flat to me. I'm going to take a break with it until 2020 and then continue with the next book and see how it goes.

>7 rretzler: Thank you, Robin.
Indeed, it is probably not a good match to read two epic fantasy series at the same time.
I won't start the Realm of the Elderlings before finishing (or discontinuing) Wheel of Time.

>8 FAMeulstee: Anita, please let me know when you actually do start The Realm of the Elderlings series - I'd love to hear your perspective. I will say that as much as I love it now, I almost gave up on it after the first two books because the main character was whiny, but the third book hooked me, which I guess is why I'm willing to give the Wheel of Time a little more time (but I don't know how much more after reading your comments about the next couple of books!)

>9 rretzler: I will try to remember when I get to The Realm of the Elderling series, Robin, that might be a while.
At the moment I am busy reading the last of all my own childrens/YA books, so the next Jordan book is planned for the end of the year.
