Lost in a Book- The Gathering Storm

Love this book! I've been immersed in it all week! As immersed as can be while keeping house and playing with a toddler!

Brandon Sanderson did a brilliant job stepping into Robert Jordan's hard to fill shoes. The intrigue and strategy continues in the 12th volume as various factions move into place for the Last Battle.

I'm particularly enjoying Egwene's battle for the Amyrlin Seat at the White Tower. All the female characters throughout this series have been well defined and interesting with distinct personalities. Plenty of quirks and foibles too. Same with the male characters and the multitude of cultures portrayed.

When the last two books come out, I plan to re-read the whole series yet again! If I can hold out that long!
