This was somewhat disappointing. While there are a few WoT concepts here, this is a much rougher work. Apparently different groups of creatures, including humans, have shown up on this world. From time to time, people arrive from 'our' time. The wild tribesmen who survive the extremely challenging Plains are challenged by city dwellers. There's betrayal and combat and clever tactics, but overall, this wasn't great. ( )

I enjoyed the story. A well-done first effort from a master. I did not think it was too much like the WOT although the main characters were somewhat Aiel-like. ( )

Lots of echoes (or I guess pre-echoes given the order they were written) of Wheel of Time. ( )

Well, what do you know? Robert Jordan's done it again.

Carefully planned out and written, The Warrior of the Altaii displays his trademark attention to detail, developing several societies in just a few hundred pages. Nonetheless, the pace still remains quick -- much quicker than the Wheel of Time, at least -- and not much of the story is spared on unneeded scenes or description. Jordan carefully plucks out what the reader needs to know, sprinkles it with a bit more curiosity, and leaves it like that. Is it a different approach than the Wheel of Time? Certainly; while an entire book might've been spent then traveling from Point A to B, Jordan prefers to blip it over in a paragraph instead, here.

In fact, I almost wish that he'd spent a bit more time elaborating on certain things. Granted, not much more description is needed for the Plains, and I think Jordan was aware of this when he wrote all his brief "...We set out from Point A. Ten days later, and we'd arrived at Point B" passages. We know plenty about the lay of the land, alright, and the societies that live there -- but what about the magic system? The Most High? When Wulfgar was revealed to be a nexus point of sorts between worlds, did that really have as big of a surprise as Jordan intended? After all, we didn't understand much of that to begin with, leaving us, if anything, more confused when the part was added on.

Then there's also the role of Elspeth, which I must admit I was a bit disappointed over. The longbows did good, yes, but seriously? For all the hype and mystery you built up around her, you're telling me that was the one thing she becomes important for?

And, jumping back to my previous statement about not needing more description over certain things-- Jordan needs to calm down when writing about battlefields. Because there are enough battlefields in this story. And we don't need to hear "The smell of blood was in the air" or "The drumbeats rang the sound of death" every single time. It's like the more violent counterpart to "She sniffed and smoothed her skirts" in this story!

I know I've talked a lot about the story's weak points here, but that doesn't mean for one moment that I didn't like it. As I said before, Jordan has a well-thought-out idea here that he executed with much precision and skill. Details, though sometimes lacking, are carefully balanced to keep the reader in both suspense, (X said this, but what does that mean?) and surprise. (Aha!) The plot is complex and elaborate, yet still logical and coherent. The prose rings sound, always clear and captivating.

My hat tips to Robert Jordan for another great work. 4.5/5 stars. ( )
