I haven't been driven to write a review of the series before this book, having read all of them up to book 12 years ago my memories of them were good, but oh...this one was just hard work. I am sick of the 'bulging' eyes, and worst of all, 'gaping' expressions. I have committed to listening to all the books, mainly because it's a good tale, and I like the central characters, but there's another reason...this was Robert Jordan's life work and I was so upset that he died before it was completed, I found that poignant, however, were he still alive and writing, I would be sending him a Thesaurus, and an editor to cut out all the stuff that isn't gripping. So glad I've finished this book.

If you're reading this, it's probably too late to stop now. The book is distinctly "above average" compared to books 1-7. Very important things happen here, with very little stupidity, relatively speaking. If I didn't know better, I might suspect that Robert Jordan decided to embrace character development.
What he also embraced are way more words than the story deserves, as usual.
There are few action scenes though and the ending is not as impressive as the previous ones. It snuck up on me. When I heard "the last chapter", I had to pause and check if it was a metaphor.
Book 8 is better than people say, but as usual, half of it is still boring. You will read it anyway. You've come too far to give up now.
What did you love best about Path of Daggers?
If you have read the whole series to this point, the depth of the character development is paying off in spades!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Master (or Lord) Matt Cauthen has grown into this exciting and legendary warrior/leader/horn blower!
Have you listened to any of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
yes, and this is another GREAT performance
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
this is a dumb question
Any additional comments?
keep reading this WOT series... it just keeps getting better!
