Review of 'The Path of Daggers'

The Path of Daggers by Robert Jordan
8th book in the 'Wheel of Time' series

Book 8 in the series finds things going not exactly to the Dragon Reborns plans with the Seanchan attempting another invasion as well as the manipulations of those around him. Elayne is on her way to Caemlyn to take the throne that is hers while Egwene continues on her advance to Tar Valon along with her small army (now getting bigger with her allowing anyone to be apprenticed as Aes Sedai). The weather, thankfully, has taken a turn for the better with the use (finally) of the Bowl of the Winds along with a rather unusual pact made with the Sea Folk…Another interesting installment into the epic Wheel of Time series and the characters just get better and better (though I am getting a bit lost with so many of them…the Glossary seems, terrifyingly, to be getting smaller but the cast grows page by page…). As normal for Jordan, this is well written with more and more detail coming out on every page. A must read for fans of the series.
