Review of 'Knife of Dreams'

Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan
Book 11 of the Wheel of Time series

Book 11 of the long-lasting Wheel of Time series (which Jordan promises to conclude with book 12) sees war springing up everywhere. The Dragon Reborn is still struggling with the mantle of destiny and the burden of authority. Egwene, now an apprentice in the White Tower, sows her seeds of discontent against Elaida while Elayne seeks to unite Andor. Mat has his own problems with his wife-to-be Tuon (or is she?). The battles come thick and fast with much bloodshed as the stories come to a climax.

As with the previous novels Knife of Dreams is well written with very believable characters and places. A must read for every fan of the series but, as with all but the first, not a place for a new reader to begin in the series. I still find the intricate story difficult to follow at times but still very much worthwhile continuing with it…
