Well, this installment of WOT may be regarded as part of the "slog" but I think it is actually the book I have enjoyed the most so far. Am not sure why. It's certainly shorter. The characters are showing some signs of maturity although not many. I still hate Faile and prefer the Rand POV. My audiobook listening is on 1.75X which also speeds up the read. ( )

And so begins the slog.

[b:A Crown of Swords|13890|A Crown of Swords (Wheel of Time, #7)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1358542379s/13890.jpg|791214] is by far the slowest book of the series thus far.

What was once a climactic battle--Rand versus the one or more of the Forsaken, in Shadar Logoth no less--feels somehow less for all the times we've seen it, even if Rand does end up conquering another kingdom.

Egwene spends the entire book trying to solidify her position as Amyrlin in truth, including a whole handful of things 'that have never been done' (we hear quite a lot of that series).

The main plot line in this book follows Elayne, Nynaeve, Birgitte, Aviendha, and Mat in Ebou Dar, searching for the Bowl of the Winds--a ter'angreal that could be used to heal the weather. It's an interesting enough plotline, but do in large part to every single main character in this series' inability to communicate with one another, it takes far longer than it should. And hey. The Seanchan are back.

Unfortunately, together with [b:The Path of Daggers|140974|The Path of Daggers (Wheel of Time, #8)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1390508613s/140974.jpg|1098593], [b:Winter's Heart|13891|Winter's Heart (Wheel of Time, #9)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1480096268s/13891.jpg|791225], and [b:Crossroads of Twilight|113435|Crossroads of Twilight (Wheel of Time, #10)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1408325146s/113435.jpg|195579], A Crown of Swords begins the slow section of a Wheel of Time, with the vast majority of plotlines likely to be cut if/when the series moves to TV. There's still a whole pile of fascinating storylines and epic battles, but they do tend to come fewer and further between.

Still worth the read. Just perhaps with a bit more skimming. ( )

I was pleasantly surprised (as I have been by the last couple of books) that there was enough relevant plottage going on to keep me wanting to read the book, rather than just trudging through it out of some self-flaggelation type of obligation. I almost gave the book 4 stars. Almost.

The ending is . . . lame. WoT endings are usually by far the best part of the book, but this ending is a bit anti-climatical and doesn't leave us with much closure. I'm still not convinced that Sammael is dead, no matter what anybody says.

It's hard to believe that this book only covers a period of about 10 days. Jordan's habit of backtracking every book to keep us up to date with what was going on with the rest of the world at the end of the last book is extremely annoying. And it just gets worse as the series goes along. ( )

My feelings haven't really changed about this one. I'm still utterly disgusted that rape is portrayed as lighthearted farce because the victim is male. Though I will note, that the defense that the person is a flirt would, very unfortunately matter in a court of law. I'm still deeply annoyed by the whole men-can't-understand-women and women-can't-understand-men on repeat in every single relationship. And I'm exhausted by the violence of the women that is also presented as humor.

Yet it is still an amazing universe. Egwene is utterly magnificent in this one. The deviousness on both sides is fantastic.

ORIGINAL REVIEW
The storm is coming.

This would, but for one thing, be one of my favorites of the series and a 5-star book for me. Egwene's storyline and development is fantastic. More is learned of the Atha'an Miere, which I find to be one of the more interesting cultures. The deviousness of the Forsaken is delightfully wicked. The darkfriends as a whole are cunning and intriguing.

A Crown of Swords loses a star for one thing. I have always found the portrayal of the relationship between Matt and Tylin extremely disturbing. She rapes him. If you question that at all, I ask you to read that storyline again only with it firmly in your mind that Tylin is a man and Matt is a woman. Would you be okay with that? A king refusing to feed a woman because she rejected his advances? A man cornering a woman in a locked room who has told him no, removing her clothes with a knife, and having sex with her? I don't think you'd be cool with that. At least I hope you wouldn't. We treat a male being sexually preyed upon by a female very differently. We don't really consider it rape. Many don't even believe that a man can be raped by a woman. Matt's treatment by Tylin is treated as a topic of humor. It's presented as his “just desserts” because he's a unabashed woman-chaser and tends to ogle. Even if it weren't made abundantly clear that Matt doesn't chase anyone who isn't interested (and it is), these are not things that make rape okay. If you doubt that, try it on as rape defenses by a man in a court of law. “Your honor, she flirts with lots of men. She even looks at them.”

Yeah, that's not okay for me.

To me book seven is unique from the others of the series and in fact most other fantasy stories in that here we begin to see multiple enemies not vying for a common goal but rather clashing with both the protagonists and the other antagonists. The being of Shadar Logoth formerly Padan Fain has emerged separate and distinct from the forces of the Dark One. And the internal politics of the Dark One's greatest followers creates a interesting and unique challenge for the protagonist and a draw for readers.

There can be no health in us, nor any good thing grow, for the land is one with the Dragon Reborn, and he one with the land. Soul of fire, heart of stone, in pride he conquers, forcing the proud to yield. He calls upon the mountains to kneel, and the seas to give way, and the very skies to bow. Pray that the heart of stone remembers tears, and the soul of fire, love.

- From a much-disputed translation of 'The Prophesies of the Dragon' by the poet Kyera Termendal, of Shiota, believed to have been published between FY 700 and FY 800.

From the tall arched window, close onto eighty spans above the ground, not far below the top of the White Tower, Elaida could see for miles beyond Tar Valon, to the rolling plains and forests that bordered the broad River Erinin, running down from north and west before it divided around the white walls of the great island city.
