"The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, confronts the Dark One as humanity's only hope. But Rand dare not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison, and until he has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean. The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believes are fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes. Not even the White Tower itself is any longer a place of safety. Now Rand, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and Elayne, Nynaeve and Lan, and even Loial, must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph."--Publisher website.

Though the beginning of Knife of Dreams was good, the rest of this book was kind of like the last four Wheel of Time Books. The plot didn't move too much and some characters, like Elayne, were super boring. I did like that the book spent a little more time on Rand and Egwene, but I didn't think it was enough time. I also think that too much page time was spent on Mat (who's side of the story only gets interesting toward the end), and Elayne and other boring characters). Perrin's story isn't too bad, but it would be a spoiler if I said why.
So Knife of Dreams was a little bit of a disappointment, but I'm hoping that the last few books that Brandon Sanderson wrote get better and help the plot get out of the hole it got stuck in.

But if there is one good thing about this book, it's the cover! It's absolutely fabulous! Hats off to the artist!

In typical Jordan fashion, the amount of description in this book is over the top. I often found myself skipping 3/4 of a page because it contained so much description of rooms/people/places you'll be in once. With that said, the plot is somewhat more focused this book, and Mat's story is really great. Beware of Elayne's plot, though - it's a bore.

This is the last book in the Wheel of Time series that Robert Jordan completed before his death. After the previous book, Crossroads of Twilight, brought the plot to a halt (800 pages of checking in with each character, seeing that nothing has happened, but hinting that something might soon), Robert Jordan has finally re-grown his ability to progress the plot. Although it's not the best written of novels, it's nice to see the plot we've been following for thousands and thousands of pages get moving again.

This is the last book that Robert Jordan wrote, and it's really good. However, fans of the series should keep reading! Brandon Sanderson did an excellent job with the next couple books! He really picks up the series. Keep reading!
