At the end of the second Wheel of Time installment, Rand al'Thor was declared the Dragon Reborn. As before, the past, the future, and the present are vulnerable to The Shadow, and though Rand Al'Thor has been anointed as Dragon Reborn, he is unable to wield the One Power. Now, his only clear mission is to face the Dark One in a battle to the death--the next great test for the Dragon Reborn.

With the third installment of the Wheel of Time series, this epic tale reaches new heights of emotional impact and we find the author intrepid in his prose, treading stealthily on the tracks of fantasy writing, which J. R. Tolkien opened up to audiences decades ago.

Robert Jordan is the pseudonym for writer James Oliver Rigney, Jr., who uses this pen name for his fantasy collection and other names for historical fiction, westerns, and dance criticism. He is also a ghostwriter for an international thriller. Born in Charleston, South Carolina, he served two tours in Vietnam as a helicopter gunner. After, he completed his bachelor's degree in physics. He was then employed by the U.S. Navy as a nuclear engineer before beginning his writing career. His wife is his editor, and he lived with her in a house built in 1797, until his death in 2007. When he became ill with cancer, he related the appropriate details to friends and family for his last books in the Wheel of Time series, in order that they might be fleshed out, in spite of his dying too soon to complete them himself.

The Wheel of Time returns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Rand Al-Thor is the Dragon Reborn, able to touch the One Power, but unable to control it. Rand knows only that he must face the Dark One in a battle to the death. Ahead of him lies the next great test for the Dragon Reborn. Download and start listening now!

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
