Let me start out by saying that I loved this book the first time I read it and I still think it is a good book! If I could I would give this book a four and a half rating instead of a four. Since I cannot do that I just want to stress how good I think this book is. I think this book has some minor flaws in it but I think it is a great addition to the series. Now to the review.
After finishing TPOD I was not sure what to expect with WH. Even though the beginning of the book starts out a little slow I found it a little bit exciting also. After Perrin returns to camp from meeting with the prophet he learns that Faile and several of her female companions has been captured and resolves to get her back while Elayne is busy trying to manage and reign as queen of Andor. After being absent from TPOD Mat is back in this book and it is good reading about him and his adventures in Ebou Dar. Rand is busy trying to kill some renegade ashaman. There are other things happening and several other character point of views. The ending of the book left me stunned and I thought it was very exciting reading the awesome and wonderful event at the end of the book!
To sum it up WH was a great book! I know alot of people including myself think that books 8-10 were a little slow and yet I still thought they were all pretty decent. However book 11 was awesome and so was book 12 even though it was written by BS. With that being said I am looking very forward to the future books in TWOT series!

I thought that this book was very good. It is true that it has too many subplots, but what Robert Jordan wrote of the main plot was fairly fast paced and very interesting. There is a lot going on in this book that is important to the story. This book provides depth and prepares us for the Last Battle. I know that the reviews have been pretty low for Winter's Heart and Crossroads of Twilight, but I really can't see why. All the minor characters that are introduced in the various subplots do not really confuse you while you are reading-unless you are only reading ten pages a day or something. I have confidence that Robert Jordan will bring all the subplots and main plots together nicely in the last book. So far this series has been wonderful- exciting, even addicting.

I cannot criticise Robert Jordan for the work he put into making book ten of the series come to life. I will say that I was disappointed, in a way, at the change of style that Jordan makes in each new book that he writes.

I give book ten an A+ for detail and for how it brings the world of the series to life but it lacks the excitement and intensity that the other nine had present. Reading this book made me feel as if Jordan is purposely dragging out the story, and if rumors are right, he is. It is time to finish, once and for all, the Wheel of Time series.
