Marriages! Dreamwalking! Queens and politics! Mysterious towers! Ter'angreal Visions! Wool-headed sheepherders! This book has it all! Really, there's so much action and Things Happening packed into this book, I can't believe it's only 861 pages. Only slightly joking . . .

Basically, this book is resolving as many side and character threads as possible before we turn our whole attention to the Last Battle in the next book. People actually talk to each other about Things, people actually go and do Things, and there are consequences for people doing Things poorly.

I thought the tone was a little closer to Jordan's in this book, and I liked the clever tricks employed by various characters in battle. And I felt like I understood and appreciated characters who had annoyed me before (Galad and Rand, mostly).
