Review of 'A Crown of Swords'

A Crown of Swords by Robert Jordan
7th book in the 'Wheel of Time' series

Book Seven finds the Dragon Reborn with lots of problems including how to deal with the Aes Sedai who seem determined to still him no matter what the cost. Egwene, now raised as an alternative “Amyrlin Seat” (in the “little tower”) while Rand continues to build his army of men who can channel. Elyane, Aviendha and Mat are in Ebou Dar looking for a ter-angreal that may reverse the odd weather that seems to be plaguing the world. Another installment into the Wheel of Time epic by Jordan who ones again weaves his magic including the inevitable comments and side-stories of the coming of age of his main characters (and them coming to terms with the relationships between men and woman). Another great instalment. Book Eight anyone?
