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. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of th Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of...Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages. And it is stolen.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Jordan has come to dominate the world Tolkien began to reveal....The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience....The evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades. The New York Times

  • Adventure and mystery and dark things that move in the night—a combination of Robin Hood and Stephen King that is hard to resist. Furthermore, Jordan makes the reader put down the book regretting the wait for the next title in the series. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
  • The Wheel of Time is a fantasy tale seldom equaled and still less often surpassed in English. Chicago Sun-Times
  • Read by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer, who breathe life into this epic tale. Patriot News

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy Bonk | 2/19/2014

    " Adventurous fantasy - the adventure begins. . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brock Pattison | 2/7/2014

    " Though this book had some lulls in the storyline, Jordan kept the same grandiose epic feel of the series going. I think Lord of the Rings will forever be the greatest fantasy epic ever written, but this series is now second place in my personal opinion. It is quickly earning a special place in my literary heart. "

    " This was good, but I liked book one better "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent Bullock | 1/15/2014

    " This book was kind of lukewarm for me. Really just another step to getting to the end of the series. Basically, much of it was they loose the Horn of Valere (and Matt's knife) and spend the whole book trying to get it back after getting it back and loosing it again half way through the story. Once again things seem to just fall into place a little too perfectly for me, but maybe because that is just how the wheel weaves the pattern for everything to work out in the end for everyone:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 7sabo_vicky | 1/5/2014

    " This book much like its processor was a strange and wonderful tale, while the charicters can be a tad flat at times the depth of the story makes up for it. This story dosent allow you to see who is in the right and who is in the wrong, or even who's who, until the battle is not only over but forgotten in the new battles build up, if then. You simply cannot say that even Rand is good, prophesy may meen something completely different than what you would like to think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bruce | 1/3/2014

    " The plot thickens as Rand, Perrin, and Mat weave the lives and events around them into the pattern of time. The Great Hunt adds depth and complexity to everything in Robert Jordan's world and leaves you knowing that there are countless more enjoyable hours to spend with the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 11/12/2013

    " Wish I could give it 6 stars! To say I found it to be a "creative fantasy" might seem redundant, but it literally applies here. Compared to other books of its genre it is creative, innovative, and intricate! this might have to go on my "favorites" shelf. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 10/21/2013

    " Robert Jordan provides some truly epic scenes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J Andrew | 10/14/2013

    " Pretty good. I almost gave up on WoT when I saw how long the series was. Glad I changed my mind. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 8/31/2013

    " Fantasy good v. evil tale--the characters are more compelling than the story, but still worth reading. This is a series of over 10. For the time being, I'll continue to read the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johnglen | 7/8/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles McGonigal | 10/26/2011

    " The Wheel of Time keeps on turnin, turnin, turnin. I'm loving this re-read and how much I'd forgotten about how the story goes. Even when I recognize Fain and Domon, I am reading for the first time how they weave into the Pattern. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean-Jacq | 9/19/2011

    " Now this book deserved a full 5 stars. With its twists and surprises, The Great Hunt was unpredictable, captivating, and brilliant all at the same time! It kept me up reading well into the unholy hours of the night. Robert Jordan, well done :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua Castleman | 8/30/2011

    " It was exciting to see all the pieces Jordan had painstakingly placed on the board explode into action for this sequel! Very fun read that even further sets the stage for more excitement. "

    " The Wheel of Time saga continues, as Rand al-Thor and his band become embroiled in the hunt for a horn that can be used to raise the dead. Trapped between the dark forces that want him alive and a mystical power that could leave him dead, al-Thor continues his adventures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathi | 6/26/2011

    " This was a much better book overall than book 1, I thought. More complex, more action, somewhat less repetition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 4/28/2011

    " Well-written fantasy series. Reminiscent of Lord of the Rings (although not as intense yet). It is a long series, though. After finishing book 2, it may take me a while to get through the rest of the 14 (?) books in the series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 4/26/2011

    " I am biased I know beacuse I really enjoy the early books in this series, I do think it loses its way a little later on but for know its a quick page turner. Onwards, onwards to the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 4/24/2011

    " if you are reading it, you like it, otherwise you wouldn't be on the second book. "

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Niels | 4/11/2011

    " It starts off a little slow, just like the first one. But when you get to the end, all the story lines get together which makes for an awesome ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 4/9/2011

    " Just getting started. There is great intrigue swirling around the Keep at Fal Dara! (Add dramatic music here.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 4/1/2011

    " I'm really enjoying these books, although I just found out there are 17! Not sure if I can make it that far to find out what happens, but this a masterful plot. I am hooked. Be careful though, I'm pretty sure if you want to find out what happens you have to read all 17. Just as good as #1. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 4/1/2011

    " Same review as the first book. Excellent! I love Jordan's poetic writing. I wish I could write like him. It's so unique. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 3/31/2011

    " Eye of the World was good, but The Great Hunt has taken the concepts introduced and further expanded the world. More mythology, more characters, more obscure fight scenes . . . Awesome read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 3/30/2011

    " 2nd time around- great story. Keeps you reading and on edge. "
