But those paths are filled with complications and dangers, for Moiraine, of the royal House of Cairhien, whose king has just died, and Lan, considered the uncrowned king of a nation long dead, find their lives threatened by the plots of those seeking power.… (more)

I wavered between 3.5 and 4 stars but in the end, it deserves the higher rating. I started this audiobook yesterday; after a few hours of listening, I planned on doing some other stuff but each time the sleep timer turned the book off, I would want to find out what was going to happen next and turn it back on again. The fact that Jordan's books do that to me tells me that, despite all the things that irritate me, they are indeed better than just good.

I found that young Moiraine reminded me a lot of Nynaeve without the braid pulling. My annoyance didn't really start until Moiraine meets Lan - as had happened many times in the series with Rand, the way people are oblivious to the circumstances surrounding other people and their assumptions that they read both the person and events correctly irritate me. However, that irritation is more a reflection on me than Jordan as this facet of human nature is undoubtedly one that exists (particularly in adolescents and young adults!). ( )

It seems to me that for some spinoff book for Wheel of Time, a prequel based around Moiraine and Lan seems like the obvious choice, but not the best choice. It's good for what it is, but I've never liked the White Tower stuff in the main series anyways. 3/5 personally, but 4/5 objectively. ( )

This book is quite interesting, but I think that the storyline of the whole series works best if you read the book after book two or three, at the earliest. Otherwise, some perfectly good mysteries are revealed before their time, IMO. ( )
