Winter's Heart  - Robert Jordan A welcome return to form after a very shaky three-book run (reaching its zenith with The Path of Daggers, in which, effectively, nothing happens). I will always hold a special affection for the Wheel of Time, and the late Jordan's unique brand of snail-paced storytelling. Winter's Heart benefits from an excellent climactic sequence, but don't hold out such hopes for the first 600 pages.
