Exciting book with lots of nice deep dark action. ( )

This installment takes assured steps in adventure but is hampered by one-note characters and some very poorly conceived villains. Nynaeve is by far the most frustratingly annoying character ever conceived and Rand still lacks charisma. For every step it takes forward, two seem to be accelerating back. ( )

The Fires of Heaven is mostly a book to extend what we've seen before.

Elida solidifies her control on the tower while the rebels come together to oppose her. Nynaeve tugs her braid. A lot. Elayne and Nynaeve end up in the circus (not even kidding) and with a captured Forsaken...

Rand solidifies his control on the Aiel[^1] and grows in his relationship with Avidendha[^2]. Nations fall to Rand (and co) as do more of the Forsaken (and they haven't really started respawning yet...).

Egwene continues her studies with the Wise Ones, growing stronger in her control of Tel'aran'rhiod.

Mat begins to learn just what he can do with the memories in his head... and Rand finds that he will use anyone, even his friends.

Perrin... isn't even in the book at all. I guess he's off doing honeymoon things with Faile. (I honestly didn't notice until I couldn't remember what he did and looked it up...)

All together, it feels like the weakest book thus far. But that's mostly because you can't keep up a pace like that forever. Eventually you have to dig in and really build the world, which is what we're seeing now. It's still well worth the read and hard to put down.

One interesting note: This is one of the first big cases we see of just what balefire can do. Reversing the death of a whole pile of main characters? Oy. That's quite a thing. It hits less hard than it did the first time, since I know they'll all be in future books, but it's still an intense scene.

[^1]: Which of course ends up going sideways... Oh the Shaido. One of my least favorite plot lines and they take forever to go away.

[^2]: That's what she said. ( )

Book 5 in Wheel of Time. Rand al Thor, with the assistance of the Aes Sadai and Aiel people, continues to build allies and eliminate the Unforsaken as foes in preparation for his ultimate showdown aganist the Dark Lord. Missed Perrin in this book. ( )

Pacing is still terrible although at least some things do happen other than at the end of the book. But my biggest issue with this series remains - I don't actually like any of the main characters, except Rand. And the female characters are either complete bitches or act like 3 year olds! I'm listening to the audio and whenever it's a female character I'm hoping the chapter will be short and then it's a relief when it moves to Rand. I mean, will any of these supposed adult women actually grow up?
The death of a main character was telegraphed - knew that was coming. The unravelling of the other deaths was clever though. Another thing I found quite odd was the Matt fighting in a battle and killing someone powerful but we don't actually see that - we just get told about it afterwards - HUH?
Jordan as usual lands the end though - exciting and interesting - it's just a shame that it takes so long to get there.
I'm taking a break from the series now to listen to something else on audio, then will go to New Spring. I'm determined to finish the series as it's a classic (supposedly) but I need a break. ( )

Met zijn komst zijn de vreselijke vuren wederom ontvlamd. Heuvels verbranden en landen verschroeien. De jaren van de mens geraken ten einde en de uren korten. De muren zijn doorgestoken en de sluiers van het vaarwel geheven. Stormen rommelen achter de verten en vuur uit de hemel zuivert de landen. Geen redding zonder ramp, geen hoop aan deze zijde van de dood.

Uit: De Voorspellingen van de Draak,
mogelijk vertaald door N'Delia Basolaine,
eerste vrouwe en zwaardvrouwe van Raidhen van Hol Cuchone
(ongeveer 400 NB)
