  1. I finished a few hours ago and I'm still trying to make sense of it all. Total information overload! (But in a good way). I had been anticipating this so much. Feel a little deflated and have so many unanswered questions. Did a complete reread before this so have been living in WOT for the last month. Need to process it all. Great end to the series it all just flew by
  2. I am not sure about the Genetic thing as bearing in mind both Adeleas and Vandene can both channel and they are siblings.
  3. I think I always thought Elaida's foretelling refered to Rand (once we found out who his mother was). He is decended from the Royal Line of Andor. Galad being his half brother I hadn't really thought about but he will defo be at the Last Battle with Perrin. Not really sure about Gawyn (but he is annoying) but I do actually like Elayne. Only 6 weeks to go!!
  4. I have started my Re-Read now. I started last week and have just finished EoTW. I started reading the Wheel of Time in 1996 so got all the way up to Crown of Swords before I had to wait. I have since re-read them every time a new book comes out. I tend to read quite quickly and miss bits so there is always something that clicks each time. Can't wait for the 8th January (already booked time of work) but will be so sad when it ends!!
  5. I just finished the series. It had been a long time since I read it last. Very good set of books. Now I've started on The Baker's Boy.
  6. If you have a Kindle or book reader I would recomend a few of the new independant Fantasy authors. The books are slightly cheaper than normal paperbacks and sometimes even free. I liked David Dalglish especially and also T C Southwell (there is a lot of these but I really like the set I read) Also love the old favourites. Here are some I don;t think mentioned yet. Raymond Feist- The Magician to start with, and most of the rest are ok although some of the newer ones are slightly repetitive. Janny Wurts - The Curse of the Mistraith (although not yet finished and up to book 11). This is a little bit different. JV Jones - The Baker's boy trilogy and also he has a second set of bools but I can't recall the name now and they are good. Robin Hobb - Assassins trilogy (and then there are a few other related trilogies) Brent Weeks - Shadow assasins trilogy Dave Duncan - The Blades trilogy It depends if you are in the mood for Light or Heavy fantasy.
  7. My top choices for favourite wizard/magic guys would be: 1. Gandalf 2. Belgarath 3. Raistlin 4. Elminster
  8. Currently just started Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb. It's been a while since I read them and I love these books. Just finished reading Raymond Feist (Magician - A Kingdom Besieged). As for what's next I really don't know. Always looking for something new to read if anyone has recommendations. I have read quite a lot of different stuff and have varied tastes.
  9. Have just read through the list and can recommend some of them and also have some hints where I can go next for something to read. My favourites are Feist, Eddings, Robert Jordan. RA Salvator to name a few (although I did quite like the early Sword of Truth books) A few I'd like to add are: The Gap Series by Stephen Donaldson (more SciFi and a bit nasty in places but different). Baker's Boy Trilogy by JV Jones (fairly easy read) Wit'ch Wars by James Clement Tairen Soul Series by CL Wilson (mixture of Fantasy and romance. Got strangely hooked) Star of the Guardians by Margaret Weis (Fairly light heated Sci-Fi with Star wars themes).
