Publisher Description

The Wheel of Time is now an original series on Prime Video, starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine! In Winter's Heart, the ninth novel in Robert Jordan’s #1 New York Times bestselling epic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time®, Rand al'Thor and his friends face personal trials in their quests to build alliances against the Dark One. After locating Masema Dagar, the Prophet of the Dragon, on Rand’s behalf, Perrin Aybara returns to his encampment to discover his wife Faile has been abducted by the Shaido Aiel. Determined to reclaim her, Perrin forgoes his mission, risking his army in pursuit of a dangerous and unpredictable enemy. Wounded and trapped in the Seanchan-occupied city of Ebou Dar, Mat Cauthon is awaiting an opportunity to leave. But he is not the only one in hiding. Three Aes Sedai are desperate to escape. As Mat seeks a way to smuggle them all out of the city, he encounters his own prophesized fate when he meets the Daughter of the Nine Moons. Rand himself is on a mission of vengeance. He has tracked the traitorous Asha’man who tried to kill him to Far Madding. It is a city where no one is capable of channeling the One Power, leaving Rand vulnerable to those who would stop at nothing to destroy the Dragon Reborn… 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.

    " The books keep going. They are great books, if you can get past the parts that feel like a chore. Not to add spoilers, but I was a bit disappointed with the last chapter. I thought there would be more to it then one chapter. It was probably good actually, I am just so used to how things are normally drawn out that having something in a single chapter seemed almost unimportant or rushed. "

    " This book was less than satisfying. Perrin was my favorite character until he became fixated on saving Faile from the Aiel. The story seems to progress less in this book. But you have to read it to get to book 10 which is good. "

    " Looking at this book, individual from the series, I'd say this is certainly one of the best ones. The storyline is progressed nicely, if a little slowly at times, and has one of the best climaxes so far. Regarding the series, I'm concerned by the ever-growing list of characters and struggle at times to remember who's who, especially when a character crops up who we haven't heard from for two or three books. But this won't be such an issue if the pace picks up and the separate storylines eventually weave into one. "

    " I had some hesitations about reading this one because of what I had heard about it. I actually liked it quite a bit. I think it helped that Mat was back and he is my favorite character at this point. He keeps things funny. There are also a few things that happen in this one that make it worth the read. I am curious to see how the next book plays out because there are some characters I am curious about. When you read an epic series one of the problems is that there are so many characters with so many stories going on the time line doesn't move as fast as I want it to. "

    " This was one of the weakest books in the series. Mat's storyline did pick up and there was a funny twist of events that tied to the plot line we have been waiting a few books for. The bonding of Rand by Elayne was stupid, and the following sex scene was dumb. This book read at times like it was written by a 14 year old hormonal teenager. This book dragged on for me but it was redeemed by the last 60 pages or so. I hear that the series doesn't pick up again til Knife of Dreams so I will have some more reading that feels like work to do. "

    " Jordan tries really hard to get the plot moving again, with a gratuitous cutting of some hanging threads in the last chapters (such as Osangar, who had done nothing, disappearing in a flash). Still a ways to get everything back to the same path, mind. Rated M for violence, supernatural themes. 3/5 "

    " Okay, I liked this one. A lot! But I think I liked it mostly because of what happens at the end - which is something I'd been hoping for since like book two. And that's really all there is to say about that, because now I'm on book ten. "
