  1. The final act of the fourth succession war of Andor: Arymilla Marne's siege of Caemlyn, and the defense of the city by Elayne Trakand, an animated breakdown:
  2. Rodel Ituralde leaves Arad Doman leading 20.000 soldiers, domani men and taraboner dragonwsorn, to instill rebellion against the Seanchan invaders in Tarabon. Here's an animated breakdown of the first battle of said rebellion, the battle of Serana:
  3. Ok, it's an established fact that CoT is the worst book in the series by far, but, looking in hindsight, many things happened during it. I think the main issue is the sense of not going forward, because all of the action takes place simultaneously with the ending of Winter's heart, and we keep being reminded of it through all the characters sensing what's happening at Shadar Logoth. But, I think with a good summary, the book can be seen in a better light. Here's an animated summary of the events of the book. At least it can work in the case you're re-reading the series and are thinking of skipping this book.
  4. The fight for the cleansing of Saidin. I present to you the Battle of Shadar Logoth, an animated breakdown:
  5. I was making it! Haha. I hope you enjoy it!
  6. One of the most underrated moments of the series is definitely Rand's campaign against the Seanchan in Altara. You never see it mentioned anywhere, although it's epic almost to the level of Dumai's Wells, with even more troops involved, and at least 4 full battles engaged. And not even mentioning the fact that it was the first major blow to the Seanchan army, bigger than the defeat at Falme. Here's an animated breakdown of the battles.
  7. Are you trying to convince that friend to watch the TV show? Or maybe to read the books, or both? Show them this video, it serves as a first approach to the series, introducing the world to new readers, as well as a spoiler safe review/summary of New Spring, the prequel novel to the main series.
  8. The battle of Dumai's Wells animated! Asha'man... KILL!
  9. Welcome to the animated summary of the siege and subsequent battle at the gates of Cairhien, between the Shaido clan of the Aiel, led by Couladin, and the army led by Rand Al'Thor (the Dragon reborn), as it appears on the fifth installment of the series, "The Fires of Heaven". Enjoy!
  10. Ok, you surely have already noticed that the old symbol of the Aes Sedai is pretty similar to the Yin and Yang symbol. That's not coincidence, in fact, Yin and yang can be equated to Saidar and Saidin, the female and male halves of the One Power. The duality that completes a whole comes from Daoism, but, actually, there are many influences from Chinese mythology and history within Wheel of Time. Here it is a breakdown, along with the review and summary of "The Fires of Heaven", the fifth book. Thanks!
  11. Hi! Sanderson fan here. But besides Cosmere stuff, I just started reading The wheel of time, and liked it. I just took off with a series of reviews on YouTube, I'll leave the link here, just in case there's someone interested. I'll be super grateful to anyone giving it a shot. Thanks!
  12. Oh, cr*p, I'm halfway through The Hero of Ages, and now I'm starting to feel like I don't wanna finish it. Think I'm gonna take the advice and finally start reading The Wheel of Time before grabbing The Alloy of Law.
  13. Ok, yes, I agree that the political intrigue is a must-be, considering the immense power vacuum created after a thousand years of the same ruler, and the type of leader Elend is. I'm just saying that, after having finished the book, I've been left with the impression that 2 thirds of the book are unnecesary long. The action is condensed in the 10 or so final chapters, and I'm even a little annoyed at how all of the stalling was worth nothing, as the battle for Luthadel was won with a formidable Deus Ex-Machina, incarnated in Vin being able to control the Koloss. She didn't find out how to do so through a process all over the book, she just acted instinctively after just one test on her Kandra, which means she could have just been equally succsessful if the Koloss attacked the first day, without besieging the city. Many things happen in those 10 last chapters, without the pace feeling rushed, that's why I maintain that all of the political sub-pltos could have been easily narrowed down. I must add that I agree on Straff being too unlikable a character, and not very compelling as a villain, but, at the end of the day, he was just a minor antagonist, only to give plot to the second book, and his death was worth having him. I'm looking forward to seeing that scene on the screen, if they ever make the movie/series.
