Everyone is having a rough go of it. Rand is getting more and more questionable in his choices, and poor Perrin has his own new side quest. I did like the story alignment for Morgase and her group. 8.5/10
While it seems the plot is inching forward, and one of main characters is left in the dust, there is so much going on in this volume. Invasion, intrigue, and betrayal are on full display as the plot thickens.
