By request of the boyfriend, who is in love with epic fantasy series. In this one we have an attack on a farming community, after which three boys must leave the village and go on terrifying adventures in order to save the world. You know how it goes. This book was kind of disappointing in that the mysteries that crop up throughout the novel are not all taken care of by the end. This is clearly so that you’ll read the next one, but I’m almost disinclined to do so. I don’t mind getting a new mystery at the end, but when I’ve been waiting for nearly 800 pages to find out Rand’s true lineage and I don’t get to find out? Boo on that.
