Review: The Fires of Heaven - Robert Jordan


...Into the forbidden city of Rhuidean, where Rand al’Thor, now the Dragon Reborn, must conceal his present endeavor from all about him, even Egwene and Moiraine.

...Into the Amyrlin’s study in the White Tower, where the Amyrlin, Elaida do Avriny a’Roihan, is weaving new plans.

...Into the luxurious hidden chamber where the Forsaken Rahvin is meeting with three of his fellows to ensure their ultimate victory over the Dragon.

...Into the Queen’s court in Caemlyn, where Morgase is curiously in thrall to the handsome Lord Gaebril.

For once the dragon walks the land, the fires of heaven fall where they will, until all men’s lives are ablaze.

And in Shayol Ghul, the Dark One stirs...

My thoughts:
Ok time to say something clever again, 5th book, all almost 1000 pages it seems. It just gets harder to harder to review this series, not to mention since I have already read it before too.

Starting to like good old Rand again but Mat is still such a favorite. I like the memories in his head and how he becomes something more. And still such a rascal.

Hey, where was Perrin!?

Nyn and Elayne was all over the world doing their stuff. And obsessing over Rand much?

Min, Siuan and Leane, I did like these three together and especially when they get into trouble.

Egwene still bores me.

Ok, is there any POV I am missing? Aviendha, I just wish she could stop talking about protecting Rand for Elayne. Come on woman! You are from a culture where women share a man anyway.

So lots of POVS, duh. Exciting things happening, like the Aiel leaving the Waste. War coming. Rand learning about Saidar. And much much more.

Conclusion:
I can stop reading at a page and jump back 2 weeks later. That is how well I know this series by now.True love.

Cover:
Lol, Rand's coat. He looks so weird.

  1. kuddos for reading this! I wouldn't be able too...I'm not a fan of a lot of POVS. A few are good, but my brain can only handle so much.

  2. That is definitely a lot of POVs to keep track of! Sometimes I really enjoy that though, it all depends on how well it's done:) So nice that you found a series you love as much as you do this one!

  10. It's been forever since I've read this one, but I love this series. I've only read one actually written by Sanderson though. I need more time.

  14. I have no idea how you are managing to find the time to reread these books, especially with all of the other books you are reading. I was tempted to give it a try just so I could get to Sanderson's books but I decided this is something that will have to wait until I have a lot more free time. Maybe when I retire.

    1. The trick is that it takes a month for me to read them, I read a little here and there when I have the time.

  15. I was obssessed with it when I first read this series about ten years ago or so... now, not so much anymore... I can now see the cracks in the books... still planning to re-read though after the last book gets published.
