This book is full of "Noooooooooooo" and "YES". So. Good. Back to what it was in the first book. Sanderson writes Matt so well. The whole book is just quite satisfying. ( )

[b:Towers of Midnight|8253920|Towers of Midnight (Wheel of Time, #13)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1358109459s/8253920.jpg|7338128] continues the final avalanche to the Last Battle, with Lan continuing to gathering followers, the Black Tower continuing to grow more and more corrupt, Perrin confronting the Whitecloaks (it's about time that storyline wraps up), and the newly healed Rand causing even more chaos than before.

Many people, when asked what they notice most about the change from Jordan's writing to Sanderson's mention that Mat is different. Honestly, I didn't really notice it. I like Mat--Mat in all his guises. Poisoned by the dagger. Helping his friends no matter what. Son of Battle, Prince of the Ravens. He's one of my favorite characters. If he feels different under Sanderson, it almost feels like growing up. After all:

Bloody ashes, woman. This isn't a metaphor for anything! It's just boots.

Aviendha on the other hand, personally I think it was Aviendha that changed the most. Ironically, it wasn't really that she changed from Jordan to Sanderson, instead I felt that she changed while Jordan was still writing her and Sanderson brought back the Aiel at her heart. It's abrupt after so many books, but eventually I grow to like this new/old Aviendha. She's something different from nearly all the other POV characters and that's an important thing to have.

Towers of Midnight contains my absolutely favorite scene in the entire series, the one chapter I will go back and re-read even without reading the rest of the series. The forging of Mah'alleinir. Despite his bullheaded reaction to his wife's captivity, I believe Perrin remains my favorite of the three boys from the Two Rivers. And here, here Perrin the Blacksmith gets one final chance to shine. ( )

Oh my goodness. Things actually HAPPEN in this latest installment. The surprise of this nearly knocked me out my chair! ( )

The series is wrapping up and there is gobs of action-y things to do to get us there. Sanderson keeps some of Robert Jordan's ridiculous tropes, but like the last book, he has improved upon almost everything. ( )

Have the final book on hold from the library.... needs to get here faster.

Fantasy books are not my typical "go-to" genre, but after reading so much about these characters I can't help but feel a strong attachment and let's face it, deeply invested to them and their world, and definitely can't wait to see how it all ends.

As much as I don't think these are *great* books, I have to admit I start them and I can't put them down. I don't think I would actually recommend them to anyone, but that is mainly due to the fact they are so big, and so long, and honestly go at a snail's pace for so many books. ( )

It soon became obvious with the stedding, that the Pattern was growing frail. The sky darkened. Our dead appeared, standing in rings outside the border of the stedding, looking in. Most troublingly, trees fell ill, and no song would heal them.

It was in this time of sorrows that I stepped up to the Great Stump. At first, I was forbidden, but my mother, Covril, demanded I have my chance. I do not know what sparked her change of heart, as she herself had argued quite decisively for the opposing side. My hands shook. I would be the last speaker, and most seemed to have already made up their minds to open the Book of Translation. They considered me and afterthought.

And I knew that unless I spoke true, humanity would be left alone to face the Shadow. In that moment, my nervousness fled. I felt only a stillness, a calm sense of purpose. I opened my mouth, and I began to speak.

—from The Dragon Reborn, by Loial,
son of Arent son of Halan, of Stedding Shangtai
Lo, it shall Come upon the wold that the prison of the the Greatest One shall grow weak, like the limbs of those who crafted it. Once again  His glorious cloak shall smother the Pattern of all things,and the Great Lord shall stretch forth his hand to claim what is His

In that day, when the One-Eyed Fool travels the halls of mourning, and the First Among Vermin lift his hand to bring freedom to Him who will Destroy, the last days of the Fallen Blacksmith's pride shall come. Yea, and the Broken Wolf, the one whom Death has known, shall fall and be consumed by the Midnight Towers. And his destruction shall bring fear and sorrow to the hearts of men, and shall shake there very will itself.

And then, shall the Lord of the Evening come. And He shall take our eyes, for our souls shall bow before Him, and He shall take our skin, for our flesh shall serve him, And He shall take our lips, for only him we praise. And the Lord of the Evening shall face the Broken Champion, And shall spill his blood and bring us the Darkness so beautiful. Let the screams begin, O followers of the Shadow. Beg for your destruction!

—from The Prophecies of the Shadow
