The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.


I really enjoyed the second book in the Wheel of Time series! There’s still a lot of world building, introducing more depth and intricacy to the politics, prophecies, magic system, and history. There were a lot more characters and POVs than in the first book, which took some getting used to, and there were some slow parts, which is not surprising in a book this length, but by the end I was completely swept up in the action and invested in the characters.

But I think we can all agree that Rand’s whining is getting old. Like, I get it, you didn’t ask to be a hero…but you’re the main character in an epic fantasy series so get over yourself!
