Review A Crown of Swords (The Wheel of Time Book #7)

 a crown of swords book cover

Reading A Crown of Swords, felt like coming back to a place I knew well but that was always changing. I’d read the other books before this one, so I remembered a lot about the characters, the story, and how everything fit together. This made it easy for me to get into the book and feel like I was right there with the characters. The author, Robert Jordan, has a way of telling stories that feels big and exciting, and all of that was still fresh in my mind as I started reading this new book.

In the book A Crown of Swords, the story picks up right where the last one left off. There’s no pause in the excitement; we’re thrown right back into the middle of the action. The aftermath of the big battle at Dumai’s Wells affects everything that happens next. It changes how the important characters behave and who they team up with. And it also starts a chain of events that will have a big impact on what happens later in the story.

Rand al’Thor, the main character, has a lot on his plate. He’s dealing with what he’s supposed to do according to prophecy and his desire for power. It’s not easy for him to figure out who he really is and what he has to do to achieve his destiny. Along the way, he faces both good times and tough times as he tries to lead and has to watch out for people who might betray him.

In A Crown of Swords, not only does Rand change, but also his friends go through a lot. Egwene, Mat, and Perrin all have their own problems to deal with. Egwene’s story, especially, is interesting. She’s trying to become powerful among the Aes Sedai, but it’s tough because of all the politics in the White Tower. Plus, there’s the danger from the Seanchan hanging over her head.

Besides focusing on what the characters go through, A Crown of Swords also explores the big fight between the good guys and the bad guys. The story digs into the Prophecies of the Dragon, the plans of the bad guys called the Forsaken, and how the Dark One is always trying to cause trouble. All these elements make the book more exciting and suspenseful, making you want to keep reading until you reach the end.

Moreover, the way Jordan creates his world is amazing. He describes places and cultures in a way that makes them feel real and interesting. From the busy streets of Ebou Dar to the empty lands of the Aiel Waste, he makes every place seem so alive. These settings are the perfect background for the big events happening in the story.

To sum up, A Crown of Swords is a great part of The Wheel of Time series. It’s got a lot of good stuff in it, like characters growing, a plot that keeps you guessing, and a world that feels real. I you read all the previous books of the series, this one is sure to keep you interested and make you want more.
