Review: A Crown of Swords – Robert Jordan

Elayne, Aviendha and Mat come ever closer to the bowl ter’angreal that may reverse the world’s endless heatwave and restore natural weather. Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel – Sea Folk, Windfinders, Wise Ones, and some surprising others. And, above all, Rand faces the dread Forsaken Sammael, in the shadows of Shadar Logoth, where the blood-hungry mist, Mashadar, waits for prey..

The WOT re-reading challenge continues
My thoughts:
What should I say about book 7 then…hm…I mean the last book I talked and talked about the characters and truth be told not that much has happened to make me feel one way or another.
Well Nynaeve met Lan again, I liked her more at once as they got it on. But he needs to remove that stick from his behind. All Warder and stiff. Maybe she will stop tugging that braid now.
Oh Mat, quite the rake these days…grrrrr The Seanchan are coming.
Not much happened when it all comes down to it. Elayne and Nynaeve looked for a bowl to fix the weather. Mat drunk and chased women. Rand was Rand, must get Sammael, can’t sleep with Min and be in love with A and E. Some Forsaken learned a lesson. And that was pretty much it.
Conclusion:
By now the books move slooooooooooooower. Still I love it, and I did read it over a month so it went slow indeed. But that is the pace I have set for this re-read challenge.
Cover:
These UK covers are boooooooring.

    I downloaded the first few books on my Kindle when they were freebies but I haven't started it yet. I get intimidated by these long series – like I'll never catch up because I already have so many books to read!

    I don't like the UK covers either. I'm not even a fan of the new US covers. These books do tend to plod along about this time, but I can't remember ever being bored with them. I think I love the characters too much. I'm getting ready to reread book 4 within the next few days.

    I've been thinking, instead of re-reading my copy of this series, maybe I could get an audio format and listen to it instead of reading it 'coz I have to agree with you that the series kinda slowed to a stalling pace from about book 4 or 5 as far as I could remember it…
