Rated 4 out of 5 by from Winter's Heart- Set faster tempo I've been reading the Wheel of Time series back to back and felt that books 4 through 8 were slow paced and long drawn out. Many times I thought I would give up on the series but Winter's Heart has restored my enthusiasm. The tempo was faster with many exciting moments. Now I look forward to book 10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A triumphant Come back After the disaster that was books seven and eight Jordan is back good and strong in Winter's Heart. The plot is moving straight forward with an ending the says "the days are short, the end is near". Jordan is winding up for his finale, and doing a marvelous job. He has restored my faith in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hmmm... Great book. I love all the books in the series. I will however have to read them again. The series has drawn on so long that it is starting to wear me thin. Though I greatly enjoyed the books, I've been skimming through chapters of the last two books just looking for the action. Maybe it has been drawn on for too long? Then I realize that I certainly do not want it to end. I love these books far too much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from can we move on yet? Wow, what started off as one of the best fantasy series I have ever read has gone on for way too long. I started to lose interest after the seventh book and only buy them now for the sake of completing the series. However even that is starting to wear thin fast and I am not sure if I will buy the next one. It was a good thing, but its time to end it before it starts getting remembered for the wrong reasons.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An Okay book The book itself is not too bad, but I am starting to get sick of having to keep track of 6,000,000 different characters. Maybe Jordon could finish up a few of the plot lines so that we can get back to more important matters. For that matter, do you believe just how many characters this man puts into his books? He gives even the most inconsequential characters names. For the last book, I decided to keep a list, so that when he threw in another plot line I would know who he was referring to. By the end of the book I had three pages worth of characters' names, and most of them appeared for only one line of the story. I figured out the secret: If he devotes an entire paragraph to a description of that person, you had better remember who they are, because they will come up in some major role in the next novel. Now that we have to follow so many plot lines, it seems that he barely even scratches the surface of any of them. Two paragraphs on the disappearance of Faile is ridiculous, when it should have been resolved by the end of this novel. ...And it seems that even in the plots that are covered, very little happens. Lets have more action, Mr. Jordan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but... As with (in my opinion) with books 4 through eight, this is a good book. Excellant action at the end, but until then quite slow. I enjoyed his first three books far better, but I encourge Wheel of Time readers to keep reading, because the last battle is coming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Book The best book since The Lord of Chaos, it has a good ending and it will be exciting to read the next one. I urge readers not to throw down the series because of slow 7th and 8th books, because with the last battle coming the books are bound to get better.
