Description

In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times bestseller The Shadow Rising, Robert Jordan again plunges us into his extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world:

...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...

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 18, 1993 – Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, continues his effort to unify the diverse people of a discordant world against the Dark One in this fifth tome of the Wheel of Time series (begun with The Eye of the World ). While the Aes Sedai, women who channel the One Power, and the Forsaken, ancient disciples of the Dark One, strive to bend him to their purposes, Rand leads the clans of the Aiel in a war of unification. Rand must try to master his powers as a man who can channel, while eluding the concomitant madness, as two groups of women attempt to come to his aid. His love, Elayne, Daughter-Heir of Andor, and Nynaeve, both Aes Sedai in training, join a circus to evade an angry sisterhood, and Siuan Sanche, former leader of the Aes Sedai now stripped of her powers, and two companions seek other rebels in an attempt to avert the final doom. Jordan deftly weaves details from previous books into this narrative and includes a glossary so that new readers can pick up the saga at this point. But all should beware: the few months covered here suggest it may be years and many more volumes before this series reaches its conclusion.

The Light in Action

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.
