Did anyone notice how Chapter 11: An Unexpected Letter's Chapter icon is the Dragon, but the entire chapter's POV is Elayne? I thought Elayne's POV chapter icon was a lion of some sort. Somehow i feel that the chapter icon/POV in TOM were a bit inconsistent. There are other chapters where i saw the icon and thought, "oh this chapter is going to focus on ____" then found out it wasnt really so, especially with so many chapters having multiple POVs.

She could not let that happen. The woman in her cringed to think of planning for Rand's death, but the Queen could not be so squeamish. The world was changing.Since Elayne was planning both for Andor and Cairhien, neither of these would be appropriate.

Yea but she had NOT taken over Cairhien yet. And that still doesnt answer why they would use the Dragon as the chapter icon. They mentioned Rand like once? but talk about other things mostly

I guess this just bothers me because i've always liked the POVs of Rand the best and it seemed cruel give me glimpses of Rand but basically starve me. Seeing that Dragon icon got me excited then crushed my hopes >.< One of the other books was like this too, err, i think it was Fires of Heaven, mostly ignore rand, focus on perrin, matt, and egwene
