A Fantastic Book! ( advise you skip this review if you haven't read the book)

This was a great book. In the previous books, Jordan touched lightly on the relationship between Lan and Nynaeve. Finally, they have gotten married. I was also curious as to how things would fall out between Min and Rand and also Elayne and Avendia. This book reaches deeper into topics it had touched only lightly before. I have heard many complain that the time between the books is too long and I do agree, but I do ask one question. Can a man right a 900 page book, get it revised over and over again and get it all published in less than a year like everyone wants? Just a small question. :-)

This series has lost its shine and the plot veer too much into unnecessary side tracks, smoothing of skirts and inconsequential story about the yapping of the Aes Sedai or the Wise Ones. The entirety of the book could have been compressed into 2-3 chapters. The ending seems to be an after-thought (trust me, it's an anti-climate how Sammauel is taken care of) and yet again, the 3 female characters are a constant annoyance. I'm reading it to completion yet to see how Brandon completes the "plot". Sigh...

    Deepening the rift amongst the Chosen

    Obviously a must read for WoT fans. A Crown of Swords deepens the rift forming amongst the Chosen (aka Forsaken), specifically Sammael's and Moghedien's ability (or lack thereof) to follow orders and spread Chaos throughout Randland. While the ending is a little blurry and somewhat anti-climactic, readers may be surprised at who turns out to lend the Dragon Reborn a helping hand.

    Mediocre

    Unlike the previous episodes, I found this one to be a bit slower and aven a bit boring. Jordan spends way too much time repeating events he brought out in the other books. To me, he seemed to be trying to fill the pages to make the book longer. At other times he spent too little time on explanations concerning new characters and events. Or maybe I was too bored and missed them. I hope the next one returns to the quality of the previous books.

    What?

    This book was pretty dull. What happened to all the suspence in the first books? Robert, where are you? Write the last books. I've read this far and I want to finish the series, but you left me hangin'. I am really disappointed with this.

    Too wordy, but still interesting

    These guys should have found the Bowl of the Winds forever ago! Will the weather please change soon? Also, enough of the mysterious deaths. We are already unsure If Moiriane and/or Lanfear are dead, and we have two reserrectued Forsaken in Osan'gar and Aran'gar, now we can add Sammael to the list. Look, they're either dead or they're not. I can't keep up with all the characters. Jordan switches scenes frequently, which is a good thing, but he writes like you know volumes about every character and its aggravating. The overall series is good though, and Jordan does a wonderful job in keeping multiple storylines fluid. The love scenes are interesting. Hope the Path of Daggers focuses more on Mat and Perrin, Rand is getting a little weird.

    decent

    it was good, but too short. i was just getting into it at about the middle, and there was little developement of the story. I have read all the paperbacks up to eight, and hope nine stops the downward spiral that has fallen on the series. dont worry though, i'm still going to buy all the books eventually
