Egwene needs a long period of rest and is forbidden from meeting Nynaeve and Elayne or making any trips to Tel'aran'rhiod. The whole city seems to be watching the docks now as Rand decides what to do next. Moiraine had arranged for her bond to Lan to pass to another Aes Sedai  , to take effect on her death.
Lan must go to this new Aes Sedai, somewhere in the far west. Rand wishes to mourn, but can't find it in himself. He remembers the letter Moiraine gave him before they left the palace and reads it. Her trip to Rhuidean gave her some glimpses of possible futures. Many paths led to the events of this morning, but there were three possible outcomes:. She cautions him about sisters from the White Tower who might be Black Ajah or might have plans of their own that will interfere. She specifically mentions Alviarin and Verin as Aes Sedai to be warry of.
Moiraine also reveals that she was aware that Natael is Asmodean and gives guarded approval. Sulin arrives and finds him weeping. She begins to break her spears but Rand stops her from continuing, asking what she is doing. She asks in reply if he plans to force the Maidens to marry and tend hearths or act as pets to him. She is angry that no Maidens have been chosen for the battle with Rahvin , only male societies were picked.
Rand finally agrees that Maidens can come along, as many as any other society. Outside all of the Maidens are waiting to see if Rand accepts them again as warriors. Mat joins him and they leave to docks to get ready to travel to Caemlyn. Sign In Don't have an account? There is a darkness in us. They just kinda meander around the world, not advancing the plot and just arguing between themselves. The thing is though, when the book focuses on the plot, and I guess this is the case for the entire series, it gets really good. I tried to find out a general direction he was taking before reading the end and saw a spoiler that kinda ruined the end of the book for me.
They always seem to end at a satisfying point with a lot of open questions for the next book.
The fifth book in the series seems to be a good place to mention some all around positive tones in Robert Jordans excellent fantasy series Wheel of Time. Drawing knowledge from many different disciplines he's able to create vivid and interesting characters, strong female protagonists like no other novel possibly , and keep on supplying interesting characters back to back.
A proper review can't be truly submitted till the series is completed, and while it has moments of dulnesss, it is filled with a sea of epic quotes and rich humanity of someone who has fought the battle of war and love, and I predict it will be very satisfying ending. A weaving of character continues. The self-doubts and confidences grow. A good read, if you are committed to the series. Not five stars because the final book alone deserves to be rated as a five, when the whole epic is completed, the final twist knotted in place.
I liked the tortured doubts of Rand--there is no hero like a hero with weakness and strength.
The Fires of Heaven (Wheel of Time, #5) by Robert Jordan
Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. I've never stopped reading a series of fantasy books right in the middle, but I'm out. Every little detail is spelled out, right down to the thread color in dresses. Others might like that level of detail, but my eyes start to glaze over and my mind wanders to more interesting things Almost every character is either sullen, manipulative, sulky, resentful, hateful, sexist, secretive, spiteful or dull. I've been annoyed with most of the main characters since the first book but thought maybe they'd get better I don't find myself cheering for the "heroes".
I've slogged through the word swamp of five of these books, and I'm throwing in the towel. Took me a little less than a year to finish this series only reading a little each day or so, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Jordan wrote with a lot of detail and made the characters really feel like flesh and blood. Rand, Matt, and Perrin and the rest are characters you'll enjoy getting to know and enjoy following through the many turns of the Wheel of Time. I know I'll visit again.
