Path of Daggers
Path of Daggers | Robert Jordan
For millions of fans around the globe, the wait is over. Sequel to the international blockbuster bestseller "A Crown of Swords," "The Path of Daggers" continues one of history's greatest fictional journeys and the most extraordinary work of American fantasy ever published--"The New York Times," "Wall Street Journal," and worldwide bestselling series--Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time.The phenomenal tale that is mesmerizing a generation of readers now continues in Book Eight.The Seanchan invasion force is in possession of Ebou Dar. Nynaeve, Elayne, and Aviendha head for Caemlyn and Elayne's rightful throne, but on the way they discover an enemy much worse than the Seanchan.In Illian, Rand vows to throw the Seanchan back as he did once before. But signs of madness are appearing among the Asha'man.In Ghealdan, Perrin faces the intrigues of Whitecloaks, Seanchan invaders, the scattered Shaido Aiel, and the Prophet himself. Perrin's beloved wife, Faile, may pay with her life, and Perrin himself may have to destroy his soul to save her.Meanwhile the rebel Aes Sedai under their young Amyrlin, Egwene al'Vere, face an army that intends to keep them away from the White Tower. But Egwene is determined to unseat the usurper Elaida and reunite the Aes Sedai. She does not yet understand the price that others--and she herself--will pay.

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.

I‘ve done enough work on this wee Mary & Jesus ornament that you can sort of tell what it is! It‘ll be my aunt‘s Christmas present.

This #audiostitching season took me to about half an hour from the end of THE PATH OF DAGGERS. Much to my surprise, I mostly love the book this time through. The series‘ pace has slowed right down, but I‘m into everyone‘s storylines.

Bk5 of November & Bk3 of #NovelNovember #Readathon is done. The last few days have been a nightmare, worst flare I‘ve ever had has made me unable to even hold a book and I‘ve been trying to sleep through most of it. So I had to switch to an audiobook the past two days & finished the 8th book of the WOT instead. The Seanchan are in Ebou Dar, Rand has taken Illian & Elayne, Nynaeve & Aviendha are on their way to Caemlyn. #BookspinBingo👇

Still on the Path of Daggers.
Enjoying the second half of it together with some afternoon sun in Athens, Greece.
The tv series is starting soon and the fandom has been going crazy over on Twitter. I'm still on my first read of the series, but the die-hard fans' enthusiasm is infectious 😄

I can see why people who read this at the time it was published found it disappointing. This was very much a "set-up" book; all the different factions that were put into motion at the end of Book 7 spent Book 8 getting where they needed to go. If I had been waiting a year or two for this to come out- and knew I had a year or two until the next installment -I might have been underwhelmed. But since I have the advantage of reading the ?

The_Penniless_Author ...series after it's completed, and given that this the shortest book so far (if you can call 674 pages "short"), I appreciated the slow build. The story's not without action either, including war with the Seanchan and apparent treachery inside the Sun Palace. 14mo
The_Penniless_Author One thing I appreciate about WoT's methodical approach is the way it allows character development that might feel forced in other, shorter series to feel completely organic, such as Rand's possible descent into madness. The way his personality and reactions to the events surrounding him have shifted over time feel natural given who he is and what he's faced, yet bear the hallmarks of the impending insanity the series has hinted at all along. 14mo

2. I like that it's part of the WoT, and I'm invested enough in the series at this point that anything that advances the narrative is all right by me. What I don't like is that it's advancing very slowly, one of those books that seems to exist just to move pieces into position for the big homestretch a few books further out. Oh well, no pain, no gain!

TheSpineView I finally quit the series at book five or six. It was just too slow and I lost interest. You are much better at commitment than me, I think. 1y
The_Penniless_Author @TheSpineView It was probably book five. That one was a real slog in places, and I had trouble getting through it. But then the sixth book was the best by far, perfectly paced and a ton of plot advancement. It re-energized me for sure, and it convinced me to push through the boring bits for the big payoffs down the road. 1y
TheSpineView @The_Penniless_Author Good to know. Maybe at some point I will pick it back up 1y

Reread: More positioning and less blow-out battles in this one, but still excellent. A lot of Egwene's development, which I love, but a sad lack of Matt. 😞

Just finished this 8th book in the Wheel of Time series for #DashingDecember and #ProgressItDecember. @Andrew65

I enjoyed this book the least of the ones I've read so far. I felt like I spent most of the book waiting for something to happen and trying to sort out the hundreds of character. I'm continuing with the series because I'm told that the last ones written by Sanderson are much better.

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 2y

AllisonM89 @TheAromaofBooks i look at my shelves and it's so hard to pick what to read next. Somehow, the bingo board really helps simplify the process 2y
TheAromaofBooks I enjoyed Bonanza, but it felt way more high pressure than Bingo, despite the fact that Bingo involves five more books! 😂 I don't know, it's both structured but still has a lot of flexibility, and that seems to be working for a lot of people!! 2y

Day 3 of the #GratefulReads photo challenge by @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @OriginalCyn620

The fantasy genre has a lot of books #Over500Pages, but I‘m okay with that, since I love the intricate world-building found in series like “The Wheel of Time”. Unfortunately, there aren‘t any Funko Pops for the Wheel of Time characters yet, but these Princess Bride Funkos do kind of go with the series... Buttercup would make a glorious Aes Sedai! 👸🏼

The eighth entry in the Wheel of Time Series, this one was fairly evenly paced. Even though we didn‘t see Rand until ~300 pages in, I was really engrossed by what was happening with Elayne, Egwene and Perrin. When Rand appeared, it was mainly focused on him going to war. A good entry in the series, and I‘m looking forward to starting Winter‘s Heart, as there was a bit of a surprising cliffhanger at the end.

I got through this one in a hurry. I enjoyed PoD way more than ACoS. I didn‘t even really feel like this one was a slog. I enjoyed the character development and the pacing felt good. Onward to Winter‘s Heart!

Yay, writing reviews of books I actually read recently? Number 8 in my WoT Reread felt like a built up to the rest of the series, with the pace slowly picking up. We see a continuation of Egwene‘s awesomeness, despite all the bickering Nyneave and Elayne finally reach their shared goal, Rand learns the hard way that he doesn‘t know everything and on top of all that we‘re left with quite a few cliffhangers…

Bk8 of #TheWheelOfTimeXmasReread is done, this is the smallest book of the whole series, only just over 400pges I think. Not one of my favorites, it also is the first book that Cadsuane appears in & she is a hard character to like. I‘m only just over halfway through the series, with each book around 800pges long it‘s definitely time consuming, thank god. #painbegone #readingnotfeeling

So many unbelievable characters, dialogue is laughable, and plot drags and drags as if the publisher told the author to stretch a five book series into 14 books...Oh wait, that is what happened and it shows. I purchased the bulk of this series at one point and feel obligated to read them all, but it's so hard to keep going. Painful! #ReadingDilemma #ConvinceMeOtherwise

Sad to say how glad I am to be finished with this book. I get the feeling the pretense of making the book stand on its own is way past gone. The good: amazing world-building and great character development. The bad: the incessant bickering among characters and dated portrayal of relationships between men and women. I'm giving this a "Pick," but only for readers in for the long haul of the series. Otherwise, it's "So-So." #RobertJordan #Fantasy

I'm in chapter 11 of The Path of Daggers, and I groaned when I realized it focuses on Sevanna. She might well be THE most useless character in this series, and given the obscenely large cast, that's saying something. She might also be the most unoriginal, two-dimensional character, too. She better have some amazing payoff down the road to make up for it. #ThePathOfDaggers #WoT #WheelOfTime #RobertJordan #UselessCharacter
