  1. Yeah, I thought Bryne would end up being the only one not affected because of the warding, but then they never mentioned it. The most glaring error for me was: "Birgitte reached beneath her shirt and removed the foxhead medallion she wore, one of the three imperfect copies Elayne had made. Mat had the original and a copy. Mellar had escaped with the other copy." (p. 230) Elayne made three foxhead copies originally, one of which Mellar has and two that Mat intended to give to Olver and Tuon.

  4. I hated what she did in the Ways. One of the things that truly angered me. The actual Two Rivers stuff I was okay with, up until they got married. Everything after that I couldn't stand. The worst thing about Faile is what she did to Perrin's character. The next 10 books were whining about how he couldn't understand her and then brooding when she was captured. Whine, whine, whine, angst, angst, angst.
  5. One of my favorite scenes of the series is when Elayne tries to unravel a gateway to make sure the Seanchan don't discover Traveling. She sends everyone else away, but Aviendha and Birgette stay with her knowing how dangerous it was. They barely make it out alive while taking out hundreds of Seanchan (even if accidentally). At the end Elayne thinks: "She hoped she could be a queen to make her mother proud, but it was clear that she would never make a hero." I beg to differ.
