Even though I am giving this book a three I still want to give a positive review for this book which is kind of tough to do because it seems like the weakest book in the series just one point ahead of COT. I know alot of TWOT fans would probably argue that COT is the worst because it is so slow. I have to give that to TPOD mainly because the ending of the book felt like it was rushed and added on at the last minute. Despite all the faults in this book I still thought it was a decent read and not as bad as some people have made it out to be. With that being said lets start the review!

Robert Jordans series has become nothing more than a struggle to write more words. The series started excellent and was exciting. The third book sucked. The forth was alright. The fifth book had 500 pages of boring charectors worrying about what dress looked best on them. The sixth book was like the fifth with nothing but politics and endless fussing. The seventh was not very good either. The eight has proved about the same as the rest. Here is a hint Jordan, how about offering more battles and excitement. Screw the politics, I am so tired of everyone struggling for power and thinking they are right and everyone else wrong. I predict, because he will probally not read this, the series will end badly or not at all. A great author is only great if he continues greatness.

After reading Book Seven, I was very dissappointed with how the series was going. I was hoping that Book Eight would be a definite improvement. And after finishing it, I found out the truth. It was great! I have read many reviews saying that it was a bad book, and I have to agree that it isn't as good as The Fires of Heaven. But, every book series has to go through a building period. Sure, I hated that Mat was left out, but that only means a great story is coming in Book Nine. We also learned that Rand could be beated, which is a great relief, because the last two books he has thought himself invincible. I am giving it only a middle rating, but I loved the book all the same, and lok forward to the next.
