Summary
The Wheel of Time is now an original series on Prime Video, starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!

In The Fires of Heaven, the fifth novel in Robert Jordan’s #1 New York Times bestselling epic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time®, four of the most powerful Forsaken band together against the Champion of Light, Rand al’Thor.

Prophesized to defeat the Dark One, Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, has upset the balance of power across the land. Shaido Aiel are on the march, ravaging everything in their path. The White Tower's Amyrlin has been deposed, turning the Aes Sedai against one another. The forbidden city of Rhuidean is overrun by Shadowspawn.

Despite the chaos swirling around him, Rand continues to learn how to harness his abilities, determined to wield the One Power--and ignoring the counsel of Moiraine Damodred at great cost.

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters. The last six books in series were all instant #1 New York Times bestsellers, and The Eye of the World was named one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read.

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.

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.

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.

If you are on book 5, you know what to expect. Kate Reading and Michael Kramer are amazing for this genre.

Jordan continues to tell a whole lot, and then let’s the story show us the complete opposite, or at least something different. It’s almost as if he is doing it on purpose to prove some point. It could have been done better if so, and I highly doubt that is the intent.

The book was good, missing out on what happened to Perrin, didn’t go into his story at all. Narration was good, they do a wonderful job! The only thing is the book talks over itself in multiple spots.

The narrator was great as usual with this book, the audio though in this one is terrible compared to the rest. Many scratchy parts of the audio harsh clipping and repeating of .5 second snippets. The problem persisted across multiple devices with different head phones and made listening unpleasant

Story was good, narrators were great.

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!

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

There were several times that the audio would skip. Not sure why other than that that it was great narration I love how the narrators change depending on who was the first person account for the chapter. Well done!

If you've made it to book five then you should love the story as I do...so I give the book as a series 5 stars. These narrators do a really good job and I enjoy their voices but, as someone else commented in the reviews, I did hear certain things pronounced differently in this book than they were in the previous one.

Only issues were with the audio track skipping like an old CD frequently

The book itself was great, it lends to the whole story quite well. It was a little longish in spots but never the less, it was good. The audio left a little be desired though. There were skips and pauses much like the old scratched discs, of which I think this was recorded from.

The story wasn't bad. It was slow at some points, but I am hooked on the series. Michael Kramer is an excellent narrator. Kate Reading drives me nuts in this series. She mispronounces names like crazy. Other than that, I liked it.

This is one of the top three of the 3 series, that Jordan published. It may be one of the longest, but it kept you wanting more.

This entire series is a waste of time. Drags you down to the point you wake up and realize half an hour has gone by and you haven't heard a word. Really hard to get through. One of those books, if it was in hard copy, I'd skip through. Really poorly done. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless you're looking for something to put you to sleep.

Not a bad read. A little slow to start but all in all something to pass the time with which is what reading is really all about.

I loved this book just as much as all the other Robert Jordan novels. An excelent way to spend the afternoon

Robert Jordan's series is fascinating. This is his best so far, a worthwhile read, or listen in this case. I have grown accustomed to his split-journeys for his characters. The separate journeys add flavor while defining the times and trials, the world on the brink of total destruction, or rebirth. You'll love this one -- I certainly did. T. V. Vessels, Jr. - author.

A great book in a fine series. The character's lives are all changing and becoming more complicated as they struggle in the losing battle to keep their inocent ways while the world forces them to become more.

I very much enjoyed this installment. Excellent character development. I have listened to 8 in this series so far and have loved every one of them.

I'm hooked on this series, but each succeeding novel seems to tell less and less of the story.

The writing and the readers are both as book as the previous books. The story continues to unfold, and worth every minute.
