Publisher Description

The Wheel of Time is now an original series on Prime Video, starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine! In Lord of Chaos, the sixth novel in Robert Jordan’s #1 New York Times bestselling epic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time®, Rand al’Thor, the Dragon Reborn, builds his army of Light even as sworn enemies--and supposed allies--move against him. Now ruling Tear, Andor, and Caemlyn, among other nations, Rand is recruiting all men capable of channeling to be trained as his Asha'man soldiers. The warrior Aiel clans have pledged loyalty to Rand, acknowledging him as their chief of chiefs, even though the Shaido Aiel remain a threat. Split into two factions, the Aes Sedai of the White Tower and their rebel counterparts both seek to ally themselves with the Dragon Reborn. Rand knows all too well the manipulative nature of the Aes Sedai, no matter which side of their internal war they stand upon. But even he cannot predict just how desperate, cruel, and treacherous they can be. And in the shadows, the Forsaken and the Dark One are conjuring even more chaos... 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.

    " This is my favorite series of books. After the first chapter I like the way Jordan made the characters seam real like a ordinary person about to be thrust into extraordinary circumstances. I also love just how well the plot threads weave together. When you read it a second or third time you see so much more plot thread below the service. "

    " Just like some of the other books in this series it's a very slow red until the last 6 chapters. I just hope the next book starts where this one left off. "

    " Absolutely the best book in the series so far - fast-paced, action-packed, lots of turning points and progression with the plot. It was very difficult to put it down and it didn't have dragging moments like the previous parts. Looking forward to reading more! "

    " Usually when I try reading this series, it is around book 6 that I begin to lose interest. I finally think I understand why. Lord of Chaos is more of a very long set up piece than anything else. A lot happens but very little is resolved. However, I enjoyed this book a bit more this time and managed to make it all the way through. Now if I can just make it through the rest of the series... "

    " Still disappointed, I'm going to give it more one book. I heard that he's going to make this story a monster of 12 volumes. If that's so, he can kiss my dollars goodbye. "

    " This book took me a long time to get through (audiobook-style) and for a while I felt like I was being held hostage-- I can't stop listening... so many exciting things this time around. I love when Perrin reappears- he just brings a smile to my face. But the stuff with Rand towards the end of the book is very difficult to get through. Makes my stomach hurt and my heart ache. Poor Rand. Glad that segment is over. "

    " The slowest book yet and the weakest ending. Disappointing in those regards but still a fine addition overall. The latter half of the book had some nice reveal that kept me reading and made up for the pace of the earlier half. I just wish Perrin had arrived sooner! "

    " OK, getting a little bored now. Too many super-minor characters and pages dedicated to buildings and scenary. The plot advanced only inches. Still, the interesting and exciting parts were good. "

    " Glad to finally finish this book. Glad, too, that a piece of plot, held in my head from the last time I read the series many years ago, has come to pass. That means that the next book, and those afterward, should be new territory. "

    " This book, outside of its predecessors, truely introduces us to the elaborate villains we can expect to see throughout series. Once Again, Joradan leads us down a path which appears completely predictable, and intrigues us when he throws his curve balls! "

    " This book was still pretty good. It is runs on a bit and it is after this book in the series where I think Jordan gets lost a bit in his story. The story drags on after that in book 7 all the way to book 10. Book 11 is where he starts to wrap things up a bit. "

    " Oh my goodness, this book basically stopped time for me while I listened. Mind blowing in the character and action development. I laughed out loud at several parts, particularly regarding Mat and one of the maidens. I growled out loud in several parts, and enjoyed the book immensely. "
