  1. black tower all the way for this guy
  2. The cleansing of saidin was not o nly one of the best scenes in this book but also of the entire series!
  3. I just talked to him at a book signing on saturday. He said he is hoping for a march time frame, but he is going to do all he can to ensure the book is done right so it might take longer. He just finished tDR on his reread before he actually starts writing on it. he said when he actually starts writing he can usually write about 1000 words a day or about 1 % of the book a day. I want it to come out soon just like everybody else but I will not complain if it takes longer so that it is a polished book deserving of being the finale of the most epic Fantasy series ever written
  4. I believe in one of the past two books that Rand said he wanted nynaeve to be one of the women that would wield callandor with him, and when i was re-reading TGh and caught that it just seems like classic RJ foreshadowing to me
  5. Towards the end of TGH When Liandrin turns Egwene over to the Seanchan she emphasizes that Egwene and Nynaeve must be collared and taken across the aryth ocean. Then a couple chapters later when Rand is doing his dream thing with Ba'alzamon, B says "They will not save you, those who might save you will be carried far across the Aryth Ocean. If you ever see them again, they will be collared slaves, and they will destroy you for their new masters." This shows that the Shadow has a vested interest in keeping these two girls as far from Rand and Tarmon Gaiden as they can. To me this is a big clue that nynaeve and Egwene will be the two that link with Rand to use Callandor.
  6. yea I suppose that mkaes sense...I figured it probably had something to do with the power because as you said aginor seemed to be growing more and more healthy...so maybe since ish was able to come out from time to time each time he did he rejuvinated.
  7. "The Forsaken," Mat said hoarsely, "are bound in Shayol Ghul-" "Were bound." Aginor smiled; his ytellowed teeth had the look of fangs. "Some of us are bound no longer. The seals weaken, Aes Sedai. Like Ishamael, we walk the world again, and soon the rest of us will come. I was too close to this world in my captivity, I and Balthamel, too close to the grinding of the Wheel, but soon the Great Lord of the Dark will be free, and give is new flesh, and the world will be ours once more. So this passage seems to suggest that Ishamael either hasnt been in captivity at all during the past 2000 years or that he was bound as close to the world and the grinding of the wheel as Aginor and Balthamel were. Why does he not show the same wear and tear of the years as those two?
  8. heh thanks for letting the world know my chances of winning just dropped significantly :)
  9. One of my favorite memories of Moiraine is when she scares the whitecloaks in Baerlon by making herself appear as big as a giant. I have often tried to figrure out what weaves would be used to do that.
  10. Male 20. I am starting my third read through and I am about half way through TEoTW and it has been a few ears since i read the series all the way through. I am interested to see how my view of characters might have shifted since the last time i read the first 5 or 6 books like 4 years ago.
  11. Well, no, because they're ethnically diverse. I don't remember the books ever really saying what Hawkwing looked like, though. "He knew the man who rode at their head too. Tall and hook-nosed, with dar, deep-set eyes, his great sword justice at his side. Artur Hawkwing" That is the description given to Hakwing in TGH Chapter 47 The Grave Is No Bar to My Call
