Towers of Midnight, Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

I’ve finished the thirteenth book in the Wheel of Time series.  This particular installment is even better than the last book, and has me very eager for the final chapter, A Memory of Light, due March 2012.  Perrin Aybara and Mat Cauthon figure heavily in this volume, with Rand, Elayne, Egwene, Aviendha, and the others less so but with some memorable moments.  It is really great to see Rand kicking some serious ass.  My only complaint, as throughout the entire series, is how the characters seem stuck in the “men versus women” attitude that they started out with.  I mean, after all this time, you’d think they would trust and understand each other a little bit better.  I was very glad to see Perrin picking up his hammer and taking responsibility (and credit) for who he is.  Lan also seems to have settled into his king’s crown.  And not to spoil things, but very happy to see a certain woman in the arms and tattered cloak of the man who has loved her all this time.

    I have never read any of Robert Jordan’s books. My son has read them all and was a big fan..perhaps I will add them to my list of reads if I can tear myself away from my addiction to romance novels! 🙂

    The middle set of the series got pretty hard to slug through, but being somewhat OCD I simply have to finish any series I start. And there is some “romance” in with the swords and sorcery… some pretty spicy stuff in fact.

    Thanks for stopping by!
