Elayne Aviendha and Mat come ever closer to the bowl ter'angreal that may reverse the world's endless heatwave and restore natural When I read the prologue I thought this would be better than it's predecessor after all it had such a great start but how wrong I was What started as an amazing start soon turned into a slow bullock cart picking speed only at occasions I think I have made peace with the women in this story Nothing can change them hoping against hope Sanderson did a better job when he wrote the final books They will always make me angry cringe exasperated and irritated with their antics and I have to accept them as they are if I want to keep on reading this story This book introduces a lot of new characters of which Cadsuane Melaidhrine impressed me the most She had this aura of mystery around her Almost everyone was so eager to please her or at least not to be on her wrong side I am eager to know of her powers and role she's going to play in Rand's campaign against the Dark Lord In so many ways this book belongs to Matrim Cauthon First he was always there to rescue me when the girls became unbearable with their cat fights or too high opinion of themselves lend them into trouble He was always there to play the hero and gave us some much needed light moments His character developed a lot in this book and him forgiving Nynaeve and Elyane; and then helping and protecting them on their mission was a big step on his part Even if he was following Rand's orders there were times when he volunteered for some dangerous tasks Even after being slow events of this book surely moved the story forward and it will be interesting to what happens in the next book

A Crown of SwordsWeather Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel Sea Folk Windfinders Wise Ones and some surprising others And If someone ever wanted to make the case against men writing women they would probably find Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time a treasure trove Perhaps the biggest problem in this series is Jordan's representation of women Because they are so typically presented as strong female characters they lack depth and sometimes become well irritating Let's get right into it There is a great deal of titillating temptation haughty sniffing and blushing modesty immodesty that I suspect many readers initially found cute and amusing If nothing else it's a balance for all that high level world building suspense Yes Rand and the Aes Sedai are powerful and seriously important people but they remain people Even our heroes have hormones Unfortunately it's ultimately distracting in its repetition Jordan's obsession with undermining the modesty of Randland's sexual s folding arms beneath breasts disguises that are a bit tight across the chest for our busty heroines and smouldering gazes appear often might be effective if it were idiosyncraticThe women are powerful but their interactions are also a bit one note These interactions come across as cat fighting frankly and it is often worse than silly simply because it happens without exception When it comes to cat fighting in The Wheel of Time there is a surprisingly long list of offenders but for me the teaming of Elayne and Nynaeve always means trouble Elayne is a princess character and it seems that no matter where she goes or what she does she will be the center of a great deal of cat fighting Unfortunately A Crown of Swords is filled to the brim with Elayne chapters With Nynaeve the former princess of a small town by her side what's the worst that could happen Chapter after chapter of cat fighting The only break readers get from cat fighting is an eually repetitive form of brow beating A Crown of Swords should be a pretty cool entry Rand is preparing an invasion of Illian and a magic battle with a villainous Forsaken as always And this time it's personal Egwene is trying to gain control of the rebel Aes Sedai Meanwhile Mat is running his army the Band of the Red Hand and is involved with the ueen of Altara The Dark One who is villainous than his name suggests has stifled Randland's weather in drought and in Ebou Dar Nynaeve and Elayne are searching for a magical device that can bring back the rain in the midst of a host of strong female cat fighters Unfortunately upon first reading I found the storyline hopelessly dull Re reading helped perhaps because I knew this would be the last time we'd see Mat for a while but I still tend to rate A Crown of Swords one of the weaker novels in the series due to unacceptably high levels of poorly written strong female charactersGood examples of men writing women Norman Rush's Mating in which a woman considers her relationships with men is suitably bizarre William Gibson's female protagonists are also uite impressive particularly Cayce Pollard from Pattern Recognition I note in 2019 that there is now a subreddit called Menwritingwomen
