Er was wat minder sprake van herhalingen, maar de hoeveelheid personages en plotlijnen zijn me iets teveel geworden in dit boek. Op een gegeven moment haalde ik Cairhien en Caemlin steeds door elkaar en begreep ik niet altijd meteen wie wie was.

En toch spreekt de wereld en het verhaal op zich me nog steeds aan. Ik krijg nu pas wat meer sympathie voor Rand, omdat zijn strubbelingen nu bij mij meer echt overkomen.

Maar ik wil weten hoe het met Matt is en hoe het met Faille afloopt. Dus ga ik meteen door met boek 9. Dat is ook meteen het laatste boek dat ik herlees, want daarna ben ik toendertijd gestopt. Dus vanaf boek 10 is het verhaal echt nieuw voor mij. ( )

Despite all the annoyances I have mentioned in my reviews of previous books in the series still being present, I liked this 8th book a bit more. This one has no big battle but I felt that all the various plotlines (except for Mat) were present and fit well together. ( )

Again somewhat of a slow story, to reiterate, with however-many volumes there are in the series I am sure that there will be a few titles that are more story building than story telling, and this was full of story building...Kate and Michael were exquisite as always. Damn they are good at what they do. ( )

This book took me a little longer to finish even if it's a bit shorter than the previous ones. Parts of it really dragged as there's more setup than action here. As always, I love the Rand and Perrin chapters though I miss Mat. The rest were just okay. I noticed that I'm starting to skim some of the repetitive description, but I can only take so much and I don't think I'm missing much. On to Winter's Heart. ( )

Up until this book, I had a theory. My theory was that the first Wheel of Time book where "nothing" happens is the first one that you had to wait for. That theory held good until this book. This book was legitimately slow. That said, I'm still enjoying the series -- perhaps more so because I know the books do get better again, eventually and perhaps more so because I am reading through them aloud with my husband, so we can analyze things.

Book description
All’orizzonte si profila la minaccia di una nuova invasione del mondo da parte dei Seanchan, una razza di conquistatori il cui arsenale comprende rettili volanti cavalcati da uomini, e schiave dalle abilità magiche più potenti dei soldati più forti, molti dei quali si sono uniti all’esercito dei Seanchan spinti dalla paura che suscita in loro il Drago Rinato. La magia di Rand al’Thor continua a mettere in pericolo le persone a lui care, accrescendo il timore di essere condannato a distruggere chiunque ami. Egwene intanto continua a consolidare il proprio potere come ‘vera’ Amyrlin, avvicinandosi sempre più a Tar Valon e all’inevitabile confronto con Elaida.
