Knife of Dreams (The Wheel of Time, Book 11) by Robert Jordan



Knife of Dreams book. I have to say that Robert Jordan can surely set a scene; indeed, each chapter begins with a very detailed description of the setting, including such minutia as the style and oiliness of men's beards, the height of ladies' boots, every knickknack on every plinth, ever ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy Literature. But, if you've made it this far, perhaps that won't bug you.

Too quiet for the time of year, as though the forest held its breath. This had been a major trade route once, long before Amadicia and Tarabon came into being, and bits of ancient paving stone sometimes studded the hard-packed surface of yellowish clay.

Trade had shifted far north, farms and villages in the region dwindled, and the fabled lost mines of Aelgar remained lost in the tangled mountain ranges that began only a few miles to the south.

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.

The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope.

Unbeknownst to Rand, Perrin has made his own truce with the Seanchan. It is a deal made with the Dark One, in his eyes, but he will do whatever is needed to rescue his wife, Faile, and destroy the Shaido who captured her. Among the Shaido, Faile works to free herself while hiding a secret that might give her her freedom or cause her destruction. And at a town called Malden, the Two Rivers longbow will be matched against Shaido spears.

Fleeing Ebou Dar through Seanchan-controlled Altara with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, Mat attempts to court the woman to whom he is half-married, knowing that she will complete that ceremony eventually. But Tuon coolly leads him on a merry chase as he learns that even a gift can have deep significance among the Seanchan Blood and what he thinks he knows of women is not enough to save him.

In Caemlyn, Elayne fights to gain the Lion Throne while trying to avert what seems a certain civil war should she win the crown...

In the White Tower, Egwene struggles to undermine the sisters loyal to Elaida from within...

The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believes are fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes. Even the White Tower itself is no longer a place of safety. Now Rand, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and Elayne, Nynaeve and Lan, and even Loial, must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph.

FREAKING FINALLY ★★★★★ Stars

After 3 books that went basically nowhere with minuscule plot development FINALLY and I mean FINALLY the story took off and things HAPPENED

It’s like Jordan had a check list of things to tick off and he just went done the list….

✔ - Perrin looking for Faile and getting his woman back

✔ - Egwene actually doing something useful. Sure she had to get captured and put in the white tower to do it but finally her story arc is way more interesting.

✔ - Nynaeve and Lan finally getting a little relationship fleshing out and one of my favorite moments of the series. Way to go all Aes Sedea on your man Nynaeve. This is probably the only time I will approve of such a move.

✔ - Avienda cutting strings from Elayne. Maybe it will be her turn with Rand again soon.

✔ - Rand outing another of the Forsaken. The price might be a little heavy but he just keeps on swimming. Actually I love him and Min together, she seems to get him better than anyone else and I love how in her own way she is just as strong or actually stronger than him. (view spoiler)

✔ - Mat and Tuon playing courting games that seem more like battle strategy I LOVE THEM SO MUCH TOGETHER

✔ - Thom finally telling us what is in that letter that Moraince left for him how many books ago. Well we get to read it AND I’m so excited about where that is going to lead our crew.

✔ - The Elayne the Daughter Heir finally finding her place. Whether it is on the Lion throne or not you will just have to read to see. Her arc is actually my least favorite maybe because so much time is spent on the pregnancy and sometimes she is so smart and THEN she does that very stupid thing towards the end that just leads me to believe she isn’t even close to ready to be a Queen.

✔ - Birgetta being awesome as always. Why would we need Galad or Gawyn again to protect Elayne??? I just don’t know. I’m pretty sure I know who Gaidal Cain is reincarnated as *crosses fingers* that is my favorite deviant in training (view spoiler)

And Much Much more…. A few characters get the comeuppances that they deserve and it is so gratifying.

Was it worth going through three pretty slow books to get to some awesome? The jury is still out. For me yeah probably since Sanderson is finishing out this series and I read ~200 books a year so no biggy. But for someone else who doesn’t get to read so much and has to pick and choose probably not unless you are into extreme worldbuilding.

Very excited to start the into the end with my favorite Epic Fantasy Writer the fantastic Brandon Sanderson.

I have been waiting for the pace to pick up and the plot to progress and it finally does in this book. Probably because originally there was only supposed to be one more book after this one so Jordan had to start wrapping things up. About time!!! It took me forever to start this book because I was sick to death of his writing and the slow plotting pace of the last five books! But I had made it this far and I hear that Brandon Sanderson does an excellent job and that the last three books are really good (my husband loved them, although this is his favorite book series so...). I am happy to report that this book feels more like the original books in the series, which were excellent. Stuff starts happening and instead of focusing almost exclusively on the girls, the guys get to have some "screen time." I read this book a lot faster and didn't have to resort to skipping parts like I did the last one or two books. I am so happy to be getting to the juicy end of this series!

Jordan must have known he was dying and didn't have much time to wrap up all the story lines of the WoT in one book, but he sure as hell tried his best. I've seen more advancing of the storyline in this book than for the past three or four books combined. Book ten was the worst book I've ever read with it's meandering nonsense from Elayne. Literally useless descriptions of a hundred nobles names, everyone's clothes, goats milk, and blaming Rand for her own actions. I was surprised to see more tactful storytelling in this book despite Elayne's horribly boring and pointless chapters which I got tired of and skipped through eventually. She is the most reprehensible character who still refuses to accept responsibility for her actions, is conceited beyond belief, and makes rash terrible decisions that get people uselessly killed and then shrugs it off as not her fault. Rand turns out to continue to make similar mistakes but Mat's story makes up for both those nincompoops! And Egwene is finally getting some more necessary character development to help her deserve her undeserved position as a leader of 200 year old witches. I mean come on shes what twenty?

"Knife of Dreams" is the 11th book in the "Wheel of Time" series, and I was pleasantly surprised that Jordan started to pull things together in this book compared to the previous one.

Many people claim female characters in the series are weak, but I thought Jordan did a great job of adding dimension to Egwene's character as she faces her custody in the White Tower and her punishments for refusing to yield to Eladia's command. She is subjected to severe penance, but embraces it in Aiel fashion with great honor. In addition, I also thought Nynaeve grew immensely in this book in her relationship with Lan, and there was an awesome scene involving Lan and his destiny in the story.

After meandering for the last two books, I thought Jordan did pleasing advanced the story arcs of Perrin/Faile, Mat/Tuon, and Elayne while including and some battles with trollocs and the Black Ajah. Rand's story also advanced, although it is a bit slower since so much focus was on the other main characters.

I've already finished book 12, and I can tell you the story is really getting exciting now! I thought Jordan really got the story back on track with book 11, and Sanderson cranks things up in the remaining books. It is so worth the long read if you've been involved since the first book in the series!
