Robert Jordan's bestselling Wheel of Time epic is one of the most popular fantasy series of all time for a reason. Jordan's world is rich and complex, and he's assembled an endearing, involving core of characters while mapping out an ambitious and engaging story arc. But with the previous book, Crown of Swords, and now with Path of Daggers, the series is in a bit of a holding pattern. His huge, ambitious Wheel of Time series helped redefine the genre. George R. R. Martin, author of A Game of Thrones.

The Path of Daggers (abbreviated as tPoD by fans) is the eighth book of The Wheel of Time series. It was published by Tor Books and released on October 20, 1998. Upon its release, it immediately rose to the position on the New York Times hardcover fiction bestseller list, making it the first Wheel of Time book to reach the position on that list. It remained on the list for the next two months. It is 685 pages long, making it the shortest book in the main series.

For Harriet My light, my life, my heart, forever. Who would sup with the mighty must climb the path of daggers. тАФAnonymous notation found inked in the margin of a manuscript history (believed to date to the time of Arthur Hawkwing) of the last days of the Tovan Conclaves.

Path of Daggers is the red-headed stepchild of the Wheel of Time series: as noted by other reviewers Mat Cauthon - the series character who is a majority of readers' favorite or second favorite character - is entirely absent from this book. Moreover, he is absent despite an ending in the previous book worthy of a old-time Movie serial. That said, and (I've deducting a star for that), the book is otherwise a worthwhile entry in the series. A lot of non-Mat stuff that was gong on in the previous books continues to go on and a fairly reasonable place. The Perrin sequences aren't as frustrating as most Perrin scenes are, and it's nice to finally see the weather change. This may seem like damning with faint praise - but it is not intended as such - it's a very long series (some 4 million words) so presumably you reading it in part because you want to read a very long story. Not every page or every book of a very long story can be A+ content - this is a B/B+ novel (with a few A scenes in it) in an otherwise overall A+ series. It suffers in comparison to some of the books that have come before, and some of the books that come after - but that doesn't mean it should be given three stars simply because the reviewer is annoyed Mat doesn't show up again until the next book.

Entertaining, yes. Exciting at some points... The battles were actually pretty good... But it felt dragged... Spoilers ahead.

The story os progressing slowly and this book felt like a distraction. The Seanchan are back and they're a force to deal with for sure... It was good that the Bowl of the Winds arc seems to have ended (finally!). The battle between Seanchan and Elayne/BitTorrent/Aviendha was cool. She had a closing chapter that started slow but ended with a huge plot setup.

Perrin's arc had it's good parts and saw some character development... It also brought unexpected encounters which seems to reduce the number of secondary parties being followed and brought back interesting characters... Which is a good thing... But these were slow chapters without much action. Though a good setup was put in place for book 9.

No Mat chapters was a disappointment.

Egwene's chapters were probably the slowest... Too little happened here. Some small revelations about Halima were good. She's trying to be a great Amyrlin, but a bit more insight into her plans wouldn't have hurt. Can't wait to see the actual Aes Sedai war develop.

Rand's chapters... This is Rand's worst performance so far except for book 6. There doesn't seem to be anything left of the Two Rivers farmboy only an arrogant king. He keeps making mistakes and this time it had a big toll in terms of lives. Callandor's lore was revealed that could change how the story progresses... But his closing chapter was... A bit underwhelming in the end.... Sad, 'cuz it could had been SO much more.

I'm immediately going into book 9... But it feels like at this point Jordan was stretching it out.

I returned to this series after having given up on it long ago. A big part of the reason I made the decision to do this was the quality of Brandon Sanderson's solo writing. I realized he had finished the series, and thought that if I could just wade through some of these slower paced books I would finally find out how this ends.
That is still my plan, and the attitude with which I am reviewing this book.
There are moments in this story that reveal the author's skill. The characters are well developed and the world is amazingly intricate. I cannot imagine the number of hours that must have been poured into developing each city, country and culture in this book. It's almost too much. The details can be overwhelming at times. Granted, I am returning to the series after a hiatus, but even had I not been absent, the amount of detail is a bit much at times. I counted a three page long knitting scene.
That being said, when the plot finally moves, it really moves. It is those moments where things finally start to come together that convince me I definitely do need to finish this series. Their rarity is the reason I will need a break between books, however.

I recently purchased all 14 books of the Wheel Of Time in audiobook format, all read by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer (which was published by Macmillan Audio and Audio Renaissance).

In general I love Robert Jordan's work, and thought the reading by Kate and Michael was good.

The physical media, however, leaves much to be desired. The packaging was exceptionally poor, and the CDs arrived so badly scratched that they were difficult to play. Every one of the 14 books had one or more CDs with audible defects (popping sounds, skips, etc). Very unimpressed with the publishers...

Bottom line: these are great audiobooks for Robert Jordan fans, but be prepared for some work & frustration (and/or numerous/repeated returns) to get them to play properly.
