Synopsis

In the tenth book of The Wheel of Time from the New York Times #1 bestselling author Robert Jordan, the world and the characters stand at a crossroads, and the world approaches twilight, when the power of the Shadow grows stronger.

Fleeing from Ebou Dar with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, whom he is fated to marry, Mat Cauthon learns that he can neither keep her nor let her go, not in safety for either of them, for both the Shadow and the might of the Seanchan Empire are in deadly pursuit.

Perrin Aybara seeks to free his wife, Faile, a captive of the Shaido, but his only hope may be an alliance with the enemy. Can he remain true to his friend Rand and to himself? For his love of Faile, Perrin is willing to sell his soul.

At Tar Valon, Egwene al'Vere, the young Amyrlin of the rebel Aes Sedai, lays siege to the heart of Aes Sedai power, but she must win quickly, with as little bloodshed as possible, for unless the Aes Sedai are reunited, only the male Asha'man will remain to defend the world against the Dark One, and nothing can hold the Asha'man themselves back from total power except the Aes Sedai and a unified White Tower.

In Andor, Elayne Trakland fights for the Lion Throne that is hers by right, but enemies and Darkfriends surround her, plotting her destruction. If she fails, Andor may fall to the Shadow, and the Dragon Reborn with it.

Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn himself, has cleansed the Dark One's taint from the male half of the True Source, and everything has changed. Yet nothing has, for only men who can channel believe that saidin is clean again, and a man who can channel is still hated and feared-even one prophesied to save the world. Now, Rand must gamble again, with himself at stake, and he cannot be sure which of his allies are really enemies.

What a complete waste of time. Don't bother with this book. 75% of this story is happening during Rand's cleansing of the source. Which could could have been summed up in one chapter. The last book, including this one, is why I will no longer be reading this ridiculously drawn out series. Good luck following the 35 plus characters who contribute little if not nothing to the story.

Great story - poor characters
January 12th, 2014
This book is, in my opinion, par for the course for Jordan. The story itself is great and is what keeps me coming back. The problems are with the characters. All of the main characters act as though they are early adolescents. Men treat women as if they are completely indecipherable and women treat men as if are all complete idiots. The relationships between women strike me as unrealistic as well, particularly between the women who are in love with Rand, the main character. While I have few hopes for any of this changing in Life of Dreams, I do hope Sanderson does a better job with these relationships and characterizations in The Gathering Storm.

Somehow lacking in the storyline - perhaps because there isn't any resolution with respect to one of the forsaken
