  1. Sneaking through, may return in greater presence soon.

  2. Ha, give him some time to decompress people. I would venture to say that he is set for a little R&R after more than 2 years of constant stress and mental torture. I doubt he intends to stay away from his children. He ponders how to handle the three loves knowing he will have to face them again. Also indicating that he will eventually return.
  3. Not sure I want to go through 24 pages of responses, so I will try to avoid too many common topics. Egwene gets mentioned a lot.....Don't get me wrong, she did great things....but I am glad she died.....I hated her from the start. Overall, The novel feels just a bit too much like the scraps left over after the other two volumes of the original aMoL story. One book devoted almost entirely to a few weeks worth of battle. I did enjoy it, I will read it and the whole series again someday(My 12th overall reread), and kudos to Sanderson on keeping us from thrashing ourselves to death wondering what we would do without RJ to finish. Bringing up Sanderson though does give me my biggest gripe. Call me crazy but it isn't plot based. It's language. On page 257, the word "Cajole" is used, and on page 301 "Adage" is used. I may be completely off my rocker here, but those words feel wrong in the text. I do not think they would have been words used by RJ. They are not bad words....they just don't feel right to me. They actually really bothered me....enough that I carried around a slip of paper with the info, so I could gripe when I was done. I understand that death must occur....especially in a battle this grand. But, it felt like RJ/Sandy were channeling good ol' George Martin towards the end there. I felt like there was a whole chapter where sub/main characters pretty much went he died...then she died....then they died....then it died....then more died. For heartfelt moments, I only had two. And they kinda surprised me. I have no emotional attachment to Olver, so I found it quite odd when Noal saving him nearly brought me to tears(FYI nearly for me is the equivalent of most people bawling....ask my wife she says I am made of stone). The other one that was even more surprising was when Logain has saved the refugees by the ruins.....I can't even put my finger on the emotional part here for me...but, it came almost as close as the Olver one. Bela's scene with Faile ond Olver was just too silly.
  4. Just finishing up my 10th reread of the WoT series leading up to aMoL.
  5. The Ogier have always been a easy going group. A few years back we lost several of our key members to a mass exodus. My attempts at resurrecting the group weree derailed by life, and now Jaimelai has taken over. Join up and help him keep things active.
  6. The Ogier live in the Stedding. The Wolfkin have also found themselves a home in a Stedding.
  7. In the Stedding there are flowers galore.
  8. Oh, Jaim....Nuki's a sneaky one, but I've seen a few tricks. ;)
  9. Yeah, I am the original Org slut. Although now they call them SG's. For the longest time, the only SG I wasn't a part of was the Shayol Ghul SG. Then Lily went there and got me to follow along. ;)
