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.

Winter has stopped the war—almost—yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he? In the Heart of the Stone lies the next great test of the Dragon reborn.

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

    " Boring and repetitive. I now realise that this 10 book fantasy saga should have been a trilogy. What a disappointment and indeed a rip-off. I won't be reading any further books in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johnny | 1/18/2014

    " Another 700 pages down, another great Wheel of Time book read. As soon as I finished, I went to the library website to reserve the fourth in the series, if that tells you anything. Great development of other characters' storylines... great story again weaved together from so many different threads. Loved it. A little slow at parts, much like any 700 page book, but enjoyed throughout. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lennie | 1/16/2014

    " the wheel of time is one of my all time favorite series. if my father ever did anything good for me, it was introducing me to fantasy. he introduced me to lord of the rings, harry potter, and star wars. even though i've never watched them all the way through. i want to SOOOOOOOOOOO badly. i do like the family guy spoof though. and with these great works of fantasy and science fiction, i was introduced to the wheel of time. now, it did take me almost a year to read the eye of the world. and i'm glad i finished. it i consisder it one of the best birthday persents i ever got. next to my trip to the wizarding world of harry poter, of course. then he sent me the 2nd book. the great hunt. i finished it much faster. i like it even better the the 1st book. there was more action, and magic. thenthe 3rd book. i got it at the library and i flew through it in two week. and considering the size of the book, the size of the tpye, that was incredabley fast. i loved it!!!! this is were the series starts to get good. i love rand. he is so awesome. but Mat is my favorite character. :D he's the most funny and entertaining. "

    " Still one if the best in the series as Jordan has you racing forward with each chapter. The complexity of character, drama, and humor makes it a joy to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Billy | 1/11/2014

    " This book takes off in adventure, just like any other Robert Jordan book in this series. the storyline if this series is very complex and amazing. lower level readers may have trouble with the length, but to anyone up for a challenge or a fantasy lover i highly recommend these books. if you have not red the other books in this series then you will want to start from the first book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J. | 1/7/2014

    " A bit of a stopgap in the primary story of this epic series, but important for developing some of the subplots and secondary characters so that Jordan can use them effectively later on. To call him a master-weaver of story-threads would be a significant understatement. The glossary Jordan includes at the back of each Wheel of Time novel has reached 22 pages and counting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ivar | 1/4/2014

    " Much weaker storyline than the previous two books. Not much story progression until the ending and quite tedious dialogues throughout. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrik | 1/3/2014

    " In my opinion the all time greatest fantasy series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mustafa | 12/19/2013

    " 3.5 stars maybe not sure Good Reads needs to change this rating system too shallow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 12/15/2013

    " Just didn't pack the same punch as the earlier books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon | 12/14/2013

    " best of the series so far. the creativity from this author is amazing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zip | 12/9/2013

    " Most of it was a little slow, but the last part, when everything converges, was interesting. It was nice as an audiobook to listen to while doing other things but I am not sure I would finish it as a regular book. I will continue to the next books of the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meghan | 11/19/2013

    " The dud of the first three books. Persevere, book 4 is better. But I would advise skimming for dialogue through this installment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 9/30/2013

    " a great story about true friends and the whiles of a world gone insain "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 8/9/2013

    " I love the beginning of the Aiel showing up and the travels to the siege of the Stone of Tear. Rand needing to believe himself that he is the Dragon Reborn. All good stuff. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Miranda | 11/29/2012

    " I couldn't get into this book no matter how hard I tried. I wasn't interested in the characters or their plights. I may try again in the future. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JF | 9/7/2012

    " I had to put this one down. It just did not hold my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 7/18/2012

    " The third book in the series was good exciting story. Oddly despite the title the dragon is hardly the focal point of the story but the other characters adventures were fun to follow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 6/15/2012

    " The third book in the series, brings to height foreshadowed in the first two books, but introduces the read to the story line beyond. Yet again i could not put it down until it was done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 2/16/2012

    " I love this series and this book is one of the best in the series, in my opinion. "

    " These characters just get more angery and more confsed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiston | 6/18/2011

    " The series is starting to pick up speed. I can't wait to read the fourth book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K. | 4/11/2011

    " I enjoyed the first few Wheel of Time books when I read them, but it was years ago. I started to find the series tedious around the fourth or fifth book, and never finished it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 4/4/2011

    " Starting to feel a little Terry Goodkind, I don't mean that in a bad sense... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 3/27/2011

    " I love the way Jordan has made a whirlpool of characters, with Rand in the middle. It is odd how Rand -who is the main character- is not the one we read off the most. We are told more off the whirlpool than it's center, and it makes my toes itch for more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 3/26/2011

    " On Audiobook. Very nicely done. "
