  • Review of ‘All the Seas of the World’ by Guy Gavriel Kay
    All The Seas of the World is the 15th novel by Canadian author Guy Gavriel Kay, and is the closest to a direct sequel of any of the novels generally marketed as stand-alones.

  • The Eye of the World – The Whyyy of Time
    Here we are, the final episode of Season 1 of The Wheel of Time. It’s been an extremely short journey to this point, with almost no time for any of the character development that happens over the much longer duration in the book, but nevertheless, it’s time for the climax of the story! Rand is…

We start the episode off with a ‘flashback’ to the birth of Rand with an action scene that undercuts several core tenets of Aiel culture….
