First Line: β€œThe man who called himself Bors, at least in this place, sneered at the low murmuring that rolled around the vaulted chamger like the soft gabble of geese.”

“The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. For centuries, gleemen have told of The Great Hunt of the Horn. Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

And it is stolen.” – from

My thoughts: I’m terrible at reviewing fantasy books I think. As much as I read, I did poorly in reading comprehension in school. I get caught up in the story and forget about all the details and stuff, and I don’t really like rehashing everything. I just talk about how I felt about it I guess. So I hope no one comes to this blog for a summary of anything, because I just pull that from Goodreads, hehehe. But anyway… on to the book. I really liked this book! I have to say I liked it a lot more than I liked the first one I think. The characters have grown on me now. It took me a while to find a liking for them in the first book, but I liked them all at least at some point in this one; even Nynaeve had a pretty awesome part, and usually I can’t stand her. And whereas I was pretty indifferent about Egwene before, now I like her as well. I think right now though, my favorite is Loial. Loial is awesome. So based on this book, I’m expecting the series to just keep getting better and better. πŸ™‚
