I rarely read novels outside the fantasy genre. However, if a book is handed to me, I will likely read it regardless of its setting. Micro was one of such cases.

The Wheel of Time: Knife of Dreams

Once again the title comes from an excerpt from a book/prophecy in the world of The Wheel of Time. And once again it has little and everything to do with anything in the book. I guess a generic name is the only way to go when there are so many separate storylines to follow. The eleventh book, Knife of Dreams, splendidly ties a handful of loose ends together and even has the decency to continue from the cliffhanger the previous one left Egwene al'Vere in. Well, after the hundred-page prologue anyway.

The Wheel of Time: Crossroads of Twilight

The tenth book of The Wheel of Time didn't receive too praising reviews; Crossroads of Twilight goes through already occured events through different viewpoint characters. And it wasn't all that exciting. Or that's what I accidentally read beforehand on Wikipedia.
