Finished Wheel of Time book 12. I give it somewhere around 4.5/5. It surpassed my expectations up to the last couple scenes. They fell flat for me.

Peter began to say to him, "We have given up everything and followed you."
Jesus said, "Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age: houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come.
But many that are first will be last, and [the] last will be first."
