I'm not nearly as irritated as I should be

Winter's Heart  - Kate Reading, Michael Kramer, Robert Jordan

...because I just realised this is book nine and I only have five more of these to go.


Also, because Mat and Birgitta are a thing and I ship it. I don't care that there was a prophesy or that Mat acts like those words alone have married him to a woman he doesn't know. Egwene and her helper are a cute femslash ship too.


Other than that, all the complaints for previeous instalments still apply.


The duality aspect of the one power, Saidin and Saidar thing, would be brilliant if Jordan hadn't tied it with gender. As it is, I hate it with the passion of a thousand burning suns.
