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.

Fleeing from Ebou Dar with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, whom he is fated to marry, Mat Cauthon learns that he can neither keep her nor let her go, not in safety for either of them, for both the Shadow and the might of the Seanchan Empire are in deadly pursuit.

Perrin Aybara seeks to free his wife, Faile, a captive of the Shaido, but his only hope may be an alliance with the enemy. Can he remain true to his friend Rand and to himself? For his love of Faile, Perrin is willing to sell his soul.

At Tar Valon, Egwene al'Vere, the young Amyrlin of the rebel Aes Sedai, lays siege to the heart of Aes Sedai power, but she must win quickly, with as little bloodshed as possible, for unless the Aes Sedai are reunited, only the male Asha'man will remain to defend the world against the Dark One, and nothing can hold the Asha'man themselves back from total power except the Aes Sedai and a unified White Tower.

In Andor, Elayne Trakland fights for the Lion Throne that is hers by right, but enemies and Darkfriends surround her, plotting her destruction. If she fails, Andor may fall to the Shadow, and the Dragon Reborn with it.

Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn himself, has cleansed the Dark One's taint from the male half of the True Source, and everything has changed. Yet nothing has, for only men who can channel believe that saidin is clean again, and a man who can channel is still hated and feared-even one prophesied to save the world. Now, Rand must gamble again, with himself at stake, and he cannot be sure which of his allies are really enemies.

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

    " Not as in to this one as some of the others. It's one of those platform novels. The next one ought to be awesome. "

    " On Audiobook. Very nicely done.

    Some slow progression through this book, lots of character developments and explaining of what is going on internally in characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 3/25/2011

    " So many people are so bitter about this book. Sure, it's not quite as engaging as the other books in the series, but it was okay. It's not unreasonable to allow Robert Jordan one fair-to-middling book in an otherwise phenomenal series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan | 3/24/2011

    " or, as it is better known: Elayne Takes a Bath: Book Eleven of the Wheel of Time "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jarrod | 3/18/2011

    " If you enjoy the detail, then this series is wonderful. If all you see is drudgery, then this book especially is torment. The choice is yours. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barry | 2/27/2011

    " A bit tough to get through. A lot of minutiae that is not very interesting or important. The last couple of books in this series have not really delivered for me. I'm definately ready for this story to rap up. "

    " I wish this story would just end. I love the story, I just wish Robert Jordan could have finished the story three books ago. Yet, here I am reading #11... =) "
