Description

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...

    At first it was hard to think i could like The Fires of Heaven. I had just come of The Gathering Storm, the best book in the series, and was anxious to start Lord of Chaos, for the battle at Dumais Wells. Something happened, however, as i began reading it anyway. There is a lot going on here. Rand confronts more than a few enemies and resolves several issues regarding the Chosen. His insane counterpart, Lews Telamon, begins his appearance inside Rand's mind and thus begins the struggle for dominance. Perrin is absent in this book, but Mat plays a critical role in Cairhienen which puts him in command of a rather large and veteran force, which grows in the the Band of the Red Hand. Nyneave confronts her doubts and fears and begins her tale of independence and supremacy in the One Power. She decides to follow a path which leads her to some amazing discoveries in Healing. All in all, this book is full of action. There are very few slow parts, but nearly everything that heppens here has a profound impact later in the series. I would highly reccommend reading this and not skipping over if anyone is remaking their way through the series.
