    The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of. Now, the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

    Tony Deleeuw says: "Great Series, Great Readers"
    "Long but good"
    Overall

    I do agree with some that this is a long drawn out series, and you have to really enjoin it to want to finish. But as I came late to it when there was already ten books out I did not have to wait as long as some for the conclusion. Even though the books are long, they are well written. Keeping your attention through out to the end. Jordan does a great job holding you in the story, if a bit long winded when sometimes describing things. After reading most of the series, I then read some of the reviews. Those that compared it to The Lord of the Rings stood out to me. I have read both series, and fine it funny that people think there wouldn't be simulates. All books have a common theme, good verse evil, but to compare the two is laughable. The stories are vastly different. The only thing similar about the two is that they are both fantasy books that are well written, and a good read.

  • Redoubtable: Kris Longknife, Book 8

    Story

    Lieutenant Commander Kris Longknife has precise orders: seek out, engage, and destroy pirates, slavers, and drug lords operating beyond the rim of human space - without interfering in Peterwald family affairs. But when slavers kidnap a 12-year-old girl, Kris's mission becomes personal. And if destroying the pirate compound flattens some Peterwald interests - well, to hell with politics.

    Solomon says: "Call it a "bridge" in the series"
    "What is up with the narrater??????"
    Overall

    Someone needs to hit the FF button, if you have listen to this series you will know what I mean. I do not know if the narrater is trying to fix what others have complained about in her reading, but she should have left well enough alone. Now it seem as if she is in slow motion or really tired, not shore. I have only listened to about an hour, and I am hopping that she get faster as she goes.

    In this volume, Elayne, Aviendha, and Mat come ever closer to the bowl ter'angreal that may reverse the world's endless heat wave and restore natural weather. Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel: Sea Folk, Windfinders, Wise Ones, and some surprising others. And above all, Rand faces the dread Forsaken Sammael, in the shadows of Shadar Logoth, where the blood-hungry mist, Mashadar, waits for prey.

    "? about the end."
    Overall

    As with all of The Wheel of Time book, I enjoyed reading this one. But I wise that Jordan had made it more clear who the man was that help Rand in the end, but I think my juess is right. Just would like to know for sore that I have it right ( :
