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.

Into the forbidden city of Rhuidean, where Rand al'Thor, now the Dragon Reborn, must conceal his present endeavor from all about him, even Egwene and Moiraine.

Into the Amyrlin's study in the White Tower, where the Amyrlin, Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan, is weaving new plans.

Into the luxurious hidden chamber where the Forsaken Rahvin is meeting with three of his fellows to ensure their ultimate victory over the Dragon.

Into the Queen's court in Caemlyn, where Morgase is curiously in thrall to the handsome Lord Gaebril.

For once the dragon walks the land, the fires of heaven fall where they will, until all men's lives are ablaze.

And in Shayol Ghul, the Dark One stirs...

    " Just finished reading the first 11 books, at my son's insistance. It was very interesting. Lots of plots to follow and with 6 main characters lots of tangled threads to weave together. Looking forward to seeing how they manage to finish the series ... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadine | 1/31/2014

    " A very long book. I think Robert Jordon could easily have moved the story along faster. He spends way too long on the clothes people are wearing or especially not wearing. He should of just let them all be naked then he wouldn't have had to talk about it any more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 1/29/2014

    " This was the middle book of my favorite mini-arc in the WoT. The first six books are incredible, if you ask me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 12/26/2013

    " As good as the last book. Great action, did not drag much at all, focused on some of my favorite characters. This might be my favorite of the series thus far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Siobhan | 9/10/2013

    " Overall enjoyment. Felt that certain things should have moved on as you will all probably agree and know maney do. On the other- hand I loved watching Rand become more cold and hard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adrion | 8/13/2013

    " Far too much focus on Naynaeve and Elayne in this one. I like the characters but most of this book was spent on the two of them battling for leadership. I had hoped for more on Perrin and Loial but it just never came. Time to move on to Lord of Chaos. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katrina | 1/2/2013

    " On rereading... you know, it was perfectly good, but I can't remember what happened in it, just now, days after finishing. It's so much just a part of the whole. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 7/16/2012

    " You know what I hate about this series? The books are just interesting enough that I keep reading for 900 pages of very little happening. Then the last 100 pages get kind of exciting, which gets me to start the next book. Damn you, Mr. Jordan! =) "

    " as good as the rest of them "

    " Book 5 in Wheel of Time. Rand al Thor, with the assistance of the Aes Sadai and Aiel people, continues to build allies and eliminate the Unforsaken as foes in preparation for his ultimate showdown aganist the Dark Lord. Missed Perrin in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 11/18/2011

    " Somewhat slow in places, but there was some complex characters and situations devolving. The end was pretty good, I was going to wait a bit before jumping into the next book, but now I'm not sure I can! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 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. "

  • 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 3/18/2011

    " A lot slower than the other books. It ended with a big bang, but the middle of the book was a bit boring going over some strange stories. For example, I really didn't care too much about what the two girls were doing in a circus that seemed to go on forever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 2/22/2011

    " I feel that this book was hard to get into. A very long and slow start. It wasnt towards the end of the book that I was into the book. For me I didnt get inot the book til the 600's annd there is only 9 something pages... "
