Greetings, Zanus! It's always a pleasure to see both newer fans of WoT and new members to the site. I hope you enjoy the rest of the books as much as you've enjoyed the first seven! :welcome

(And don't get tricked into a game of Maiden's Kiss with this lot. :look: :laugh:)

I have been trying to get my mum and sister to read them, yet I think they are daunted by the sheer size of the series, I have the whole collection on display in the living area so if they won't read it, they at least have to look at the books!
If you don't mind me asking, how did he introduce you to the series?

He bought the first book in the airport on the way to Wales for a mission trip and was entranced. He read the first couple and suggested them to me.. he talked so glowingly (is that a word? :scratch) about them, I had to check it out. I was NOT disappointed in his recommendation at all. We both voraciously read the whole series, sharing the books, until he went to college and took them with him. :indifferent: I purchased them on my Kindle. He hasn't completed the last book because he feels he won't like the way it ends.

My favourite character thus far definitely has to be Nynaeve, she is such a hypocrite at times I can't help but laugh at her. Especially when (spoilers just in case)

In Book 7 when Elayne and Nynaeve make the promises to Mat, it went something like ""I promise I won't shout" Nynaeve shouted" I had to reread a couple of times just to make sure what I read was real, then I resorted to laughing for a good 10 minutes. Also the showdown with Moghedien in Tanchico was so cool, there was something said in the chapter which made me think of what it would look like to a non channeler, I imagined it would just look like a fierce staring battle, and I laughed a while then. Plus some of my favourite scenes in the series so far are the White Tower scenes when Nynaeve was Accepted. And finally of course when Nynaeve healed Siuan and Leane, I found that so emotionally. Sorry for the long paragraph, but I love WoT so much!

It seems I will have to take my time finding a good avatar pic, everybody's I have seen so far are extremely pretty!

Dude, you know if you were born earlier you'd have had to have the anguish of waiting for every single book? :eek

Waiting for the two or three that hadn't been published when I was born was tough! I can't even imagine waiting for ALL of them


Anyhow :look: Welcome to the madhouse :hug :hug

The Nynaeve moment you mentioned is SO satisfying to read, it'd been a long time coming! Feel free to send me a visitor message anytime :D

Thanks for the kind welcome. Hoping for even more great Nynaeve moments later in the series!

Hello, Zanus, and welcome to Tar Valon. :D I've only begun reading the books when I was in my first year of high school or something such - when I was 15 (I am 21 right now), and I have to agree with Nyavene Sedai, waiting for the books to come out would have been a paaain. I barely deal with waiting for new seasons of certain shows to come out, let alone books. :laugh:

It is really good to have you here, I am sure you will fit right in. :pleased-1:

Hi, Zanus. What a great introduction - I loved your enthusiasm. I introduced my daughter to the series when she was 15 and we joined TarValon.net together this past May. I think you will find a lot to enjoy here and plenty of us to share in your excitement as you continue to read through the series. I LOVE Wheel of Time and it stands as my favorite series. Please feel free to Visitor Message me any time if you have any questions. Have a great time poking around the site!!! And, welcome again!

Welcome! :joy I absolutely love your enthusiasm for this series. It's what brought us all here together to begin with, and it makes me so happy that people are continuing to discover the series for the first time. I've been reading the books since I was in my early teens (I'm 37 now), so WoT has been with me for more than half my life. :pleased-1:

I hope you'll enjoy getting to know all of us and will stick around! I'll insert a shameless plug for the Tar Valon Times here (https://www.tarvalon.net/content.php?115-tar-valon-times) and say that you should come read it and get to know the community better. :D

Feel free to send me a Visitor Message with any questions you may have or just to say hello. :welcome
