Welcome to another installment of the Forum Roundup where I bring you the brightest and best from around the Dragonmount community.
I have to apologies for beginning with yet another contentious topic: the abridgement of the Wheel of Time series. Some readers claim that the middle section of books could be considered as "slow." Whether you agree or not, the Dragonmount community could never be accused of sitting on the fence, and here is yet another chance to have your say.
Chapter 25, "The Road to the Spear"
"The stone that never falls will fall to announce his coming. Of the blood, but not raised by the blood. He will come from Rhuidean at dawn and tie you together with bonds that you cannot break. He will take you back and he will destroy you."
It's only when reading quotes like this that you appreciate how much of a literary talent we have had the pleasure of reading in Robert Jordan. The Wheel of Time is full of these stirring and romantic paragraphs. To read more, and add your own favorites, visit the General Wheel of Time Discussion Board.
I will leave you with this ode to Dragonmount's own Wheel of Time Cage Match: Mat versus Galad; a pairing that hasn't happened within the Cage Match yet.
It's a lovely piece of writing that sees Galad and Mat duel. It's a detailed, blow by blow account which is well worth a read.
