But with the previous book, Crown of Swords, and now with Path of Daggers, the series is in a bit of a holding pattern. Path continues the halting gait of the current plot line: Rand is still on the brink of losing it, all the while juggling the political machinations around him and again taking to the field against the Seanchan. The rest of the Two Rivers kids and company don't seem to be moving much faster. Egwene continues to slowly consolidate her hold as the "true" Amyrlin (finally getting closer to Tar Valon and the inevitable confrontation with Elaida), and Nynaeve and Elayne keep on wandering toward the Lion Throne, again on the run from the Seanchan. Mat Cauthon is barely mentioned, and fellow ta'veren Perrin keeps busy with politics in Ghealdan. The ending does provide promise, though, that book nine might match the pace and passion of the previous books.
If you're already hooked, you could sooner overcome a weave of Compulsion than avoid picking up a copy of Path of Daggers. But if you're new to the series, start at the beginning with the engrossing, much-better-paced Eye of the World. --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I Have just read the 8th book in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, and I have liked it a little more then the last two.
When the plot for one of the original main characters can't even make it into a 600 page book, then it is time for the author to consider improving the story's pacing.
When I read the first book, I thought I don't understand much, and it was boring at some parts, but I'm sure it will get better once I know what's going on.
This is probably my least favorite of the WOT series. Not a lot happens and some loose ends from the previous book are not tied up. Read morePublished 15 hours ago by Sarah Bredthauer
I love Jordan's writing. His character detail is amazing. I find myself rooting for the characters as if they were people in real life. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Anthony Charles Lamp Jr

Jordan returns to good storytelling in this book. Whatever lull the last 2-3 books were in is gone and the story is getting good again. Rand is taking action. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Amazon Customer
Ok, this one was good, but it took me forever to get through it. Longer than normal, even for one in this series. Read morePublished 14 days ago by I read too much!
Another winner. Great storyline unfolds with this continuance of the series. It was very hard to put down. Great character development.Published 15 days ago by James Lee
The plot gets driven forward. More characters are introduced. More subplots are woven. But it ends in such a way as to make it a forgettable book.Published 22 days ago by TheBiggerBen
I thought I would include a paragraph of the boring explanation and description from the book and the tell you that it was not an interlude between interesting events. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Regular Web Shopper
