Knife of Dreams: Book Eleven of the Wheel of Time

The end of an era, but not the saga. Knife of Dreams is the beginning of the end of the Wheel of Time saga, despite there being three books after it. Here is where things really start to heat up, and some plot lines begin to wind down or close.

This caused some confusion when they were originally released, because readers were unaware that some of the things that happened in the later book happened simultaneously with things in Winter’s Heart. That’s okay, it’s straightened out and now Heart is firmly planted in the saga where it belongs. That said, this book has both very little happening and the single biggest thing to happen in the world since the
