The Gathering Storm The Gathering Storm by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
reviewed by Christopher DeFilippis
Brandon Sanderson, has reinvigorated the Wheel of Time with a renewed sense of momentum. The last battle between main character Rand al'Thor and the Dark One is finally imminent. Darkness covers the land and the final seals are breaking on the Dark One's prison. Evil is becoming more manifest as spring blooms fail and food inexplicably spoils, throwing kingdoms into famine and chaos.

Knife of Dreams Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan
reviewed by William Thompson
Those who have been patient, addicted, or simply too far invested to give up will be pleased to hear that most of the ancillary storylines that have bogged down the last few outings -- Perrin's protracted chase after Faile; Elayne's unsteady struggle to gain the Lion Crown; Mat's languid flight from Ebou Dar and his tangled courtship of Tuon -- have for the most part been resolved. Several villains that have become prominent during this period finally meet their deserved bad end. The anticipated return of a long-absent character is all but announced.

New Spring New Spring by Robert Jordan
reviewed by William Thompson
The story revolves around the early careers of two of the more popular and important characters, Moiraine Damodred and Lan Mandragoran, and the events leading up to their fateful meeting. The initial chapter suggests the reader may actually experience the birth of The Dragon Reborn, but instead the story soon shifts to the halls of Tar Valon, leaving the circumstances of Rand al-Thor's birth the stuff of legend and prophecy.

Crossroads of Twilight Crossroads of Twilight by Robert Jordan
reviewed by William Thompson
The author revisits all his main characters, bringing the reader current with events following Winter's Heart. In terms of plot progress, this expands the narrative little more than a couple days. Perrin Aybara continues his pursuit of the Shaido, seeking a way to rescue Faile, a challenge that has occupied him since the start of Winter's Heart, and that he seems no closer to resolving. After traveling for two books, Eqwene's army is finally poised before Tar Valon, but only in view from across the river. Within the White Tower, intrigues entangle Black Ajah, rebels and Elaida's supporters alike without further conclusion.

A Path of Daggers A Path of Daggers by Robert Jordan
reviewed by James Seidman
The author succeeds in carrying forward his stunning world building in this detailed story of a struggle between good and evil. The story continues with its myriad threads and subplots, carrying the reader inexorably toward an unpredictable conclusion.

Crown A Crown of Swords by Robert Jordan
reviewed by Jim Seidman
In the seventh book of Robert Jordan's fantasy epic saga The Wheel of Time, Jordan proves again that he is one of the very few authors who can maintain the quality of a fantasy series this long. A Crown of Swords demonstrates the meticulous forethought and planning that make this series read like a gigantic single book.
