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.

Rand is on the run with Min, and in Cairhein, Cadsuane is trying to figure out where he is headed. Rand's destination is, in fact, one she has never considered.

Mazrim Taim, leader of the Black Tower, is revealed to be a liar. But what is he up to?

Faile, with the Aiel Maidens, Bain and Chiad, and her companions, Queen Alliandre and Morgase, is prisoner of Savanna's sept.

Perrin is desperately searching for Faile. With Elyas Machera, Berelain, the Prophet and a very mixed "army" of disparate forces, he is moving through country rife with bandits and roving Seanchan. The Forsaken are ever more present, and united, and the man called Slayer stalks Tel'aran'rhiod and the wolfdream.

In Ebou Dar, the Seanchan princess known as Daughter of the Nine Moons arrives--and Mat, who had been recuperating in the Tarasin Palace, is introduced to her. Will the marriage that has been foretold come about?

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

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steven | 1/12/2014

    " 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. "

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

    " A lot of things I had been waiting for happened in this book. The climax was great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 12/25/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 E.A. | 12/2/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Luci | 11/22/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Smdc | 11/15/2013

    " My favorite series ever. EVER. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 10/22/2013

    " Pretty good continuation of the series overall. The ending is always exciting for me, no matter how many times I read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 10/22/2013

    " 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 "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joshua | 5/19/2013

    " Really... another 700 pager that goes nowhere "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Camilla | 5/9/2013

    " Im not really able to distinguish the books anymore, so Im not going to write a review. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 5/3/2013

    " A shorter book with not much excitement but the ending is breathtaking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jyothiprasad | 1/14/2013

    " It is definitely better than last two installments of WOT where the story has virtually crawled with the help of fingernails. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candy | 12/1/2012

    " the entire series is great!! Can't wait for the latest! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 11/30/2012

    " Finally the series turns around and starts to get interesting again. We see mat again as he runs into trouble. perrin and fail do there thing. rand and the girls finally get together. Interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 6/3/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 5/31/2011

    " good read, I look forward to reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 5/9/2011

    " Another good book in the Wheel of Time series. It moved a bit slow and not much happened, but the plot moved forward and we're closer than ever to the final battle. "

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

    " Still enjoying the ride. Though if you believe the reviews the next book is where the wheels fall off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 4/15/2011

    " Finally, towards the end of the book Rand Actually does something monumental. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ezra | 4/13/2011

    " Is this the one where Rand Althor never makes an appearance?

    Boo on that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Khappe | 3/11/2011

    " Great book. Favorite series of all time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jarrod | 3/5/2011

    " One of my favorites in the series. The culmination of the ideas made clear by the third book start to make sense. "
