Well, it now starts to come together. Boo one was a little bit boring and confusing for my liking but to my surprise I didn’t find it long. It is very rare that I enjoy a book longer than 500 pages but recently it happened more than once, not sure if it’s me or the books. Kidding, for sure it’s the good books.

The story begins right where the first book finished.Rand accompanies his two friend along with a Shienarian army to retrieve the horn from dark friends. Nynaeve and Egwene are going to White Tower to become Aye Sedai. Rand is struggling with his faith but he forces to channel.
I can’t decide yet what I make out of Rand, for sure he is not a strong main character. So much doubt, so much fear, and still confused about too many things, not only him.But then I think maybe that’s how it should be. To see him grow and become he needs to be, should be. I’ll wait to see what’s happening in next books, it’s just the beginning I guess.
My most favorite character of book two is Nynaeve, doing everything she can to help her friends from two river. Looks like she sees herself still as their Wisdom and don’t want to give up on them. She is the voice of wisdom so many times when Egwene is all energy, excitement and worry about Rand.

Soon I’ll start the third book and I’m sure will be more confused by many new characters. Hell, why there are so many already? How many more are going to be added in next 12 books?

P.S : I listened to the audio book, narrated by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading, both are amazing. I’m now listening to Mist Born (Final Empire) again narrated by Michael Kramer, not sure how I’m going to get used to not so good audio books again.

All things are known at the end.

wow, what an ending. This series is one of my favorite Fantasy trilogy in recent years. Solid characters, solid plot and very well story telling narrative.

The book starts on when the second book was finished, Van Bam is dead and Clara is now alone with a Genii and demons. Samuel, Hillem, Goldergol and Namji are on their own back in the Sisterhood of Bells. Can these scattered remaining Relic Guild overcome Genii and Spiral and save Labrys Town and Alfier houses?

Like two previous books, the narrative switches between present time and 40 years ago. slowly every secret is revealed and every person’s place in Skaywatcher Lady Amilee’s long schemed plan is known and fulfilled.Lady Amilee has plotted what’s going to happen carefully so at the end everything will be as it should be. She doesn’t hesitate to sacrifice Relic Guild agents for the greater good.

I’ve enjoyed these series so much that I’m sure I’m going to reread them soon.
