SYNOPSIS

In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times bestseller The Fires of Heaven, we plunge again into Robert Jordan’s extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world:

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 Goldeneyes, 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 …

MY THOUGHTS

This was maybe my favorite in the series so far! (although I also really loved book 5) Even though this book is ridiculously long, it didn’t feel as slow as previous books in the series. The worldbuilding and character development were great, with Egwene and Nynaeve stealing the show toward the end. Rand’s journey in this book was his most exciting yet, and the mindblowing ending left me stunned and so excited for the next book.
