But signs of madness are appearing among the Asha'man.In Ghealdan, Perrin faces the intrigues of Whitecloaks, Seanchan invaders, the scattered Shaido Aiel, and the Prophet himself.

The chicks are doing the more interesting thing here, using the ter'angreal to do their own version of a weather control machine, or at least a weather fixing machine.

Rand is involved in yet another large armed conflict, and gets a bit crazy, which ain't good if you were a soldier there, on either side.

Easily the worst of these books so far, and a lot of pointlessnes

Many people have raved about this series- frankly, I have no idea what all the excitement is about. I just couldn’t wait to put the book down. The characters are boring, unrealistic, and the world itself simply does not have the strength to suspend disbelief as it should. If you want fantasy go for Feist or Eddings- pass Robert Jordan by.
