I read in someone's review of The Path of Daggers once that it was just a big continuation of A Crown of Swords. In some ways, I have to agree. Elayne and co. finally get to use the Bowl of Winds that they found in the last book, and Perrin and Rand try to get everyone to side with the Dragon Reborn. Exactly what they were trying to do in the last book. Mat isn't in this book, but it didn't really bother me as I've found myself starting to like his character less and less as the series has progressed. I think in all, this book was an improvement over its predecessor, and I liked it better than A Crown of Swords. But like what a lot of other readers say, it is a little slow. I think that Rand is certainly the most interesting character here, but his mood changes faster than you can blink, and he acts a little too insane to be likable. But on the flip side of that, there were some great character interactions and there also were a few surprises and plot twists that I didn't see coming.
SPOILERS: My favorite scene was probably near the end where some Rand's Asha'man turn against him and when he talks to Mazrim Taim.

The Wheel of Time series continues to be fantastic with this book! I know books 7-10 most people say are a bit dry, but if you're into this series, you will still love this book. I would recommend to keep reading because the series gets better and better near the end!

SUMMARY FROM WIKIPEDIA:

Elayne Trakand, Nynaeve al'Meara, Aviendha, and their coalition of channelers use the ter'angreal called the 'Bowl of the Winds' to reverse the unnatural heat brought by the Dark One's manipulation of the climate, and then escape a Seanchan invasion by Traveling to Andor, where Elayne initiates her claim to the throne.
Perrin Aybara moves into Ghealdan to stop Masema Dagar, the self-proclaimed Prophet of the Dragon; but unknowingly rescues the deposed Queen Morgase of Andor from the Prophet's men. He then secures the oath of fealty from Alliandre, Queen of Ghealdan. At the end of the book, Faile Bashere is kidnapped by the Shaido Aiel. Egwene al'Vere, Amyrlin Seat of the rebel Aes Sedai, manipulates her unruly followers into giving her more control, and they Travel to Tar Valon, before their siege of its White Tower.
Rand al'Thor, with Asha'man and Illianers, attempts to repel the Seanchan invasion in Altara. Though successful in early skirmishes, Rand loses control while wielding his sa'angreal 'Callandor', forcing a stalemate. Returning to Cairhien, Rand is attacked by traitorous Asha'man led by Dashiva, who fail to kill him.
