Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson – Towers of Midnight

The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark Ones prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck. To prevail, he must seek answers in Telaranrhiod and find a way – at long last – to master the wolf within him or lose himself to it forever.

Meanwhile, Matrim Cauthon prepares for the most difficult challenge of his life. The creatures beyond the stone gateways – the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn – have confused him, taunted him, and left him hanged, his memory stuffed with bits and pieces of other mens lives. He had hoped that his last confrontation with them would be the end of it, but the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills. The time is coming when he will again have to dance with the Snakes and the Foxes, playing a game that cannot be won. The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost.

This penultimate novel of Robert Jordans number-one New York Times best-selling series – the second of three based on materials he left behind when he died in 2007 – brings dramatic and compelling developments to many threads in the Pattern. The end draws near. Dovieandi se tovya sagain. Its time to toss the dice….

…but I’m going to stop this book for awhile and come back to it. I enjoyed the The Gathering Storm quite a bit, so I don’t think it’s Brandon Sanderson’s writing, but Perrin Aybara is becoming sooooo tedious for me. There’s absolutely nothing new happening in his story arc and I groan every time we get back to it – which seems way too often in this book. Crawling through the wolf dream with Hopper over and over again is mind numbing!
