Summary:

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 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.
The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope.
Unbeknownst to Rand, Perrin has made his own truce with the Seanchan. It is a deal made with the Dark One, in his eyes, but he will do whatever is needed to rescue his wife, Faile, and destroy the Shaido who captured her. Among the Shaido, Faile works to free herself while hiding a secret that might give her her freedom or cause her destruction. And at a town called Malden, the Two Rivers longbow will be matched against Shaido spears.
Fleeing Ebou Dar through Seanchan-controlled Altara with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, Mat attempts to court the woman to whom he is half-married, knowing that she will complete that ceremony eventually. But Tuon coolly leads him on a merry chase as he learns that even a gift can have deep significance among the Seanchan Blood and what he thinks he knows of women is not enough to save him.
In Caemlyn, Elayne fights to gain the Lion Throne while trying to avert what seems a certain civil war should she win the crown...
In the White Tower, Egwene struggles to undermine the sisters loyal to Elaida from within...
The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believes are fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes. Even the White Tower itself is no longer a place of safety. Now Rand, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and Elayne, Nynaeve and Lan, and even Loial, must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph.
TV series update: 'Sony will produce along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce. Judkins previously worked on shows such as ABC's "Agents of SHIELD," the Netflix series "Hemlock Grove," and the NBC series "Chuck." Red Eagle partners Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will executive produce along with Radar's Ted Field and Mike Weber. Darren Lemke will also executive produce, with Jordan's widow Harriet McDougal serving as consulting producer.' -Variety

    I really enjoyed this book, just as good as the others. This is a great series, Kramer and Reading are excellent narrators!

  • David Sandoval

    This is an awesome series and I love every book. I love listening to them while I drive.

    This book was better than the last book in the series, but I have gotten the feeling that with each book, less and less happens and more and more unimportant and tangential characters and plots are thrown in so that the same main characters can go on and on in book after book without the story ever coming to a close. After 11 books, I plan to continue reading the series until it finally ends, but there is just way too much filler in this series.

    What a great follow-up to the last book in the series, which fell flat. Everything came together and the buildup was worth the wait. I look forward to the 12th in the series in '09

    Robert Jordan's tale continues. A fine story, great characters and a world without ending or beginning, yet this one feels incomplete within the confines of itself. Read the other "Wheel of Time" books and you will find more complete epics. This piece needs to be read, it just isn't as whole as the other pieces. T. V. Vessels, Jr. - author.

    I read all the other books in this series so this is the first one I listened to. I really enjoyed it! There are 2 people reading which gives you some change for such a long book. I think the woman's narration is better, but both do well with the voices. It seemed to make me picture the scenes all the more. The book is one of the better ones in the series...it doesn't drag like a couple of them (such as book 5!). You really need to start from the beginning though, don't try to listen to this out of sequence.
