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.
Rest in peace oh author of repute! No more tales of this adventure to be spun. The tale is told...Published 1 hour ago by Limbolance
Definitely another great book in the series. With how big the world has gotten, it's hard for Robert Jordan to spend all the time you want with each character. Read morePublished 4 days ago by M. Dragovits

Book was small. Larger than paperback but smaller than normal hardback. Not what I imagined as a library book.Published 26 days ago by M. D. Ruble
