Rand al'Thor, a farm boy defending humanity, attempts to unite the nations for a last battle with the Dark One. The plan involves a pact with the Aes Sedai, the female mystics of the One Power. On the slopes of Shayol Ghul, the Myrddraal swords are forged, and the sky is not the sky of this world. In Salidar the White Tower in exile prepares an embassy to Caemlyn, where Rand Al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, holds the throne--and where an unexpected visitor may change the world. In Emond's Field, Perrin Golden-eyes, Lord of the Two Rivers, feels the pull of ta'veren to ta'veren and prepares to march. Morgase of Caemlyn finds a most unexpected, and quite unwelcome, ally. And south lies Illian, where Sammael holds sway. By the author of The Fires of Heaven.… (more)

By far one of the most awesome endings in a book ( )

The action is starting to slow down, but I'm still enjoying the series. I am starting to get a bit tired of Lews Therin in Rand's head. ( )
  eri_kars | Jul 10, 2022 |
Another stellar book in this classic series. There seems to be a pattern to these books: lots of POV changes as the characters move through their arcs culminating in a spectacular battle. This one was amazing.
I still love most of the main characters though Faile whom I previously loved is now on my nerves with her jealous fits. And Elayne is just the worst; I hope her character gets better as Egwene's does in this book. Still love the boys though. And onward to A Crown of Swords. ( )

Help.

I'm doing no housework. Dinners have been mostly pizza or take out. I'm hardly ever online. I can't stop consuming WoT. ( )

A highly variable, and at times drudging read. Some brilliant moments, but for me they are sparse and this needs considerable editing. That said, the ending was very gripping and exciting and if the whole book was like this, then I’d give it more. Take a deep breath and onto the next one. ( )

Epigraph
The lions sing and the hills take flight.
The moon by day, and the sun by night.
Blind woman, deaf man, jackdaw fool.
Let the Lord of Chaos rule.

--chant from a children's game heart in Great Aravalon, the Fourth Age
The unstained tower breaks and bends knee to the forgotten sign.
The seas rage, and stormclouds gather unseen.
Beyond the horizon, hidden fires swell, and serpents nestle in the bosom.
What was exalted is cast down; what was cast down is raised up.
Order burns to clear his path.

--The Prophecies of the Dragon
translation by Jeorad Manyard
Governor of the Province of Andor for
the High King, Artur Paendrag Tanreall
Dedication
For Betsy
First words
Demandred stepped out onto the black slopes of Shayol Ghul, and the gateway, a hole in reality's fabric, winked out of existence.

Book description
Mentre la ruota del tempo gira, i venti del destino spazzano le terre. Rand al ‘Thor lotta strenuamente per riunire le nazioni in vista dell’ultima battaglia, contro le forze del Tenebroso-, mentre altri oscuri poteri tentano di assumere il controllo delle sue azioni. Dalla Torre Bianca di Tar Valon, guidata dall’Amyrlin Elaida, è stato stabilito che Rand deve essere frenato immediatamente. La siccità e il calore estivo continuano a ritardare l’inizio della stagione invernale, cosí Nynaeve al’Meara e Elayne, l’erede di Andor, cominciano una disperata ricerca del leggendario ter’angreal, che potrebbe conferire loro la facoltà di ripristinare le normali condizioni climatiche.
