The Wheel of Time ® is a PBS Great American Read Selection! Now in development for TV!

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers and listeners around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.

The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Into the forbidden city of Rhuidean, where Rand al'Thor, now the Dragon Reborn, must conceal his present endeavor from all about him, even Egwene and Moiraine.

Into the Amyrlin's study in the White Tower, where the Amyrlin, Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan, is weaving new plans.

Into the luxurious hidden chamber where the Forsaken Rahvin is meeting with three of his fellows to ensure their ultimate victory over the Dragon.

Into the Queen's court in Caemlyn, where Morgase is curiously in thrall to the handsome Lord Gaebril.

For once the dragon walks the land, the fires of heaven fall where they will, until all men's lives are ablaze.

And in Shayol Ghul, the Dark One stirs...

    The worst one yet, this book really dragged. I would never have finished it if I weren't already hooked on the series. There was too much bickering dialog, and not enough storyline. I was very dissapointed, since I've considered all the other books in this series to be outstanding.

    As with the rest of the series the book and narration was great, the only reason I gave it 4 stars was the random talking over itself/skipping.

    Absolutely love this series! It's hard not to skip work and just listen too it all day. The narrator is fantastic and makes the book that much better. I feel like listening to wheel of time on audiobook is the only way with this narrator.

    This book was the least interesting thus far in the series. The writing style is still great, but the action/fighting just did not enthrall me. Also, the parts containing two of the main women drives me nuts! The bickering is almost too great. The narration was still top notch.

    This book is Good! But it has some pacing issues. It’s really slow in the first half, but then it explodes! Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are simply amazing (I just hope they will have planned to pronounce Ravine the same way for latter entries). The tape recording has problems here and there, they did not bother me so much. What I found annoying was that there were something like 500 tracks and were NOT divided by chapter. After all, it’s been a really pleasant listen, a good entry for WoT!

    Just getting better and better

    Love this series! Second time reading it

  • Thomas Baker

    Yet again another great book in the series, though it is a shame that Perrin's part of the story is not advanced at all in this book for some reason (it is in book six) which was somewhat of a surprise to me. But It is still a really good listen and well worth it.

    I love the book, but the track skips really bad in some parts! It either skips or talks over itself.
