Towers of Midnight (Wheel of Time, Book Thirteen) is the penultimate Wheel of Time book. I continue to be satisfied by Sanderson’s treatment as he starts to wrap things up. To some degree, the book feels like a checklist of remaining plot points getting crossed off the list, but I don’t know that that’s a bad thing at this point. There’s enough to tie up that the somewhat mechanical feel is perhaps an inevitability. Some things like this get sort of weird/asymmetric treatment (we spend the whole book waiting for Thom and Mat to go to rescue Moiraine, only to have it rushed into the end of the book in a few pages). Still, the book is at least as solid as the first of the terminal trilogy. Looking forward to finishing the series. 7/10.
