I do feel like I would have liked this book more if I had taken the time and re-started this entire series to read this in line with all the others, but I didn't and this is the review for that.
I personally have some problems with reading battle scenes, so an entire book where every chapter had at least one is trying for me. Also I got to the point where I didn't care and just wanted to skip ahead to get to the plot. Overall I really liked what was going on with Matt, and Perrin. I loved what Engwene and Elyne were doing. I liked that Tuon understood Min and that whole thing. I didn't like how few main people died, just the two seemed like a cop out. I was very upset that Bela died. Very very very angry about the whole thing. I liked what Thom was doing thought it was pretty clever and intuitive.
Me and my boyfriend have some discrepancies about the ending though. He says that Rand can't channel anything at all, where I thought that he can't channel the one power or the true power, but that he could however channel like the creator's power. But whatevs. Found it interesting that he made it so there could be even more books about WoT if anyone felt like it, with plenty of plots and people to write about.
Overall this I tried to make this book last as long as I could because I knew it was the end book. I will eventually go back through and read all of them from the beginning and perhaps I'll change my review.
A good ending to a good series. Read it if you've devoted the time to the series
