Beste | 1163 comments Only thing that doesn't alter for better is women in this series. I finished 6th book and they keep getting more selfish and cocky. I don't like men dominance all the time but this is not feminism either.

You'll (weirdly) start accepting them as they are :)))


Em Lost In Books (emlostinbooks) | 2385 comments okay I read 25&26, and wow what huge info dump they had but also very fascinating about the Aiel history.

how's Rand is able to summon a sword out of nowhere? O.o (inspiration for Sanderson to create Shardblades?)
