Without giving anything away, I will start my review by saying this is one of the better Jordan books to come out in the past few years. Although still sluggish compared to the first five books in the WoT series, Knife of Dreams picks up the pace considerably, with events starting and FINISHING in a short amount of time. A lot of nonsensical details from Crossroads of Twighlight are explained too (think ghosts and weevils). There are flaws in the book, however. Many important events feel rushed, and because of this the core climactic scene in the book fails to satisfy. Other scenes seem completely irrelevant, as though thrown in there for filler. I also have a personal dislike for some of the main charcters, and this book puts them in an even more selfish and debasing light.
All in all, there's plenty of action and adventure in Knife of Dreams, and of course a few laugh out loud moments. There's even a *Gasp* moment, thought die-hard fans may already know what it is. So if you haven't already go buy Knife of Dreams. You'll be one step closer to The Last Battle, but hey, it's worth it, right?
