The Path of Daggers (WoT #8)

The Path of Daggers (Wheel of Time, #8)The Path of Daggers by Robert Jordan
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

The eighth installment of Robert Jordan’s epic Wheel of Time series, The Path of Daggers, continues the numerous storylines that feature the main characters of the epic but doesn’t have a story unto itself.  The lack of a lone storyline contained wholy with it’s pages makes The Path of Daggers a collection of various stories all of which feature the same theme: danger.  Although this is an interest approach to contain his epic series, Jordan’s decision results in the reader finding it hard get involved in the book.

While the transition from one storyline to another was well done, none of the storylines seemed to reach out and grab the read as being the most important.  While Jordan’s world building continues to be outstanding, the characteristics of some of his main characters or characters in general continue to frustrate though if one has read this far into the series you should have found a way to deal with it.

Finally, I will admit that due to outside factors that affected my reading schedule most likely had a direct affect on how I viewed this book.  I found it a step down from the previous three installments (The Fires of Heaven, Lord of Chaos, and A Crown of Swords) though if I could have given this book 3.5 stars instead of 3, I would of.
