Description

The eagerly awaited sequel to Lord of Chaos, The New York Times bestseller that swept the nation like a firestorm.

In this volume, Elayne, Aviendha, and Mat come ever closer to the bowl ter'angreal that may reverse the world's endless heat wave and restore natural weather. Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel--Sea Folk, Windfinders, Wise Ones, and some surprising others. And above all, Rand faces the dread Forsaken Sammael, in the shadows of Shadar Logoth, where the blood-hungry mist, Mashadar, waits for prey.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

From Publishers Weekly

May 13, 1996 – The seventh volume of Jordan's bestselling high fantasy series carries on the tradition of colossal, dauntingly complex storytelling established by the previous entries (Lord of Chaos, 1994, etc.). In a richly woven post-holocaust world where magic is normally a woman's monopoly and a man who can use it is a menace, Rand al'Thor, a sheepherder, discovered that he could "channel"; he and his companions have gone on to set their world aflame. Here, Rand is engaged in a fight for control of the weather and of the growing number of men and women who have turned out to be magic-wielders. The narrative employs elements of realism rare in high fantasy, including the sense that innocent bystanders are being mauled in an epic joust of magical giants. There's wit at work here, too, in Jordan's exploration of the possibilities created by women being the magic workers. All this comes at the price of enough characters, institutions, spells, countries and so on to intimidate any reader who hasn't followed Rand's adventures from the beginning--and the author is still adding complications. A glossary helps, though, and fans of the series will gobble down this generous addition. Major ad/promo; deluxe leather-bound limited edition.

Customer Reviews

Addicting!

With each book, you are pulled more and more into this story.

The Wheel of Time

Wonderful reading! Hard to put down!

WAY too long, redundant, and sloppily edited

This series just goes on forever without anything happening. First few books are good but then everything gets bogged down in overly redundant characterization and story lines. Can't believe anyone puts WOT in the same paragraph as LOTR, never mind the same sentence. One is a masterpiece, the other, 13 books too long.
