He does use it, but that's later in the series and it does have some drastic consequences and has produced some of the most vivid picture of any written scene ever for me. It's pretty immense.

That's the problem; the series is about a change of ages throughout the continent and further, and you have to look at all the individual cases. It all ties in together though later on. By book 9/10/11, starts to string in to the finale...

Oooooh, I was SO happy when she left.

She's not dead, btw. Just...gone for the moment. Unfortunately.

Btw, does anyone know who Mesaana is posing as?

This is a spoiler: Rand dies in a nuclear disaster.

ha. I'm on book 7, they're awesome but the story line has so many threads to it that it can seem a little tedious e.g. Something interesting happens, chapter ends. 200 pages of boring ****, then it finally returns to the interesting stuff.

OH AND I HATE NYNAEVE. Someone needs to smack her.

Edit: the boring stuff is pretty much just the girls story line. 90% of it is annoying and has a feminist overtone that gets on my nerves. "That mat! Will he ever learn! MEN!". I wonder where Jordan gets it from lol...

I've forgotten so much of this story line.

I honestly wish I had the motivation to read them. I remember what someone previously stated: Interesting part, 200 pages of useless stuff, interesting part, cliffhanger.

I've read all of them, I think I'll bring them back to school with me after christmas.

Anyone know if the last one has a release date or when it's expected?

Brandon Sanderson was expecting a 400k word (that's about the length of Lord of Chaos) finish. He's on 300k and thinks it may take him up to 600k. He's not sure yet but won't finish until it is properly finished.

It was expected Autumn/Winter next year. It'll probably be later.

Well Brandon Sanderson, who is writing the last book, hopes to reach 400,000 words by the end of december. I think theres suppose to be 600,000 or close to it in the last book.

Haven't read anything by him but Roberts wife hand picked him. She wouldn't let anyone she didn't trust mess up her husbands books.

Elantris and his Mistborn Triology have picked up good reception.
