Book 4, Wheel of Time

Robert Jordan

Description

The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind.

In Tar Valon, Min sees portents of hideous doom. Will the White Tower itself be broken?

In the Two Rivers, the Whitecloaks ride in pursuit of a man with golden eyes, and in pursuit of the Dragon Reborn.

In Cantorin, among the Sea Folk, High Lady Suroth plans the return of the Seanchan armies to the mainland.

In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve.

Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn.....

Publishers Weekly Review

Sep 14, 1992 – Having declared himself the Dragon Reborn, Rand al'Thorspacing correct must proceed to fulfill the prophecy that he will protect the world from the return of the Dark One. Jordan's hefty addition to his massive series begins very much in medias res as an unknown danger threatens the city of Tar Valon, home of the powerful, nunlike Aes Sedai. In a whirlwind of uncertainty stirred up by the conflicting motivations of such groups as the Whitecloaks, the Darkfriends and Trollocs (among an abundance of others), Rand travels to the city of Rhuidean in the Aiel Waste for answers. Jordan ( The Dragon Reborn ) seems to be intent on turning the series into an endless soap opera; in each successive volume he introduces more new elements than he resolves. What was originally a mood-setting technique--the tendency of most characters not to share their special knowledge with either their companions or the reader--has by now become boring. Hundreds of characters and dozens of conflicting plots cause much of the action to take place offstage. As a result, this fully imagined saga threatens to burst the seams of its steadily more intricate design. Nevertheless, the sheer force of his invention develops a momentum that established Jordan fans, and probably like-minded new readers, will find hard to resist.

Best Book of the Series

I had forgotten how long TSR was until I started reading it about two weeks ago. It has become my favorite of the series. It details the history of the world before and during the Breaking. The characters become greater than they were and finally get a sense of what they are dealing with. It is the beginning of Mat and Perrin's journey to become the men they are later in the series. Rand comes into his own and accepts his destiny as the Dragon Reborn and begins to plot his offense against the Forsaken. The main story, in my opinion, though happens in Tanchico when Nynaeve faces down Moghedian and realizes her own true potential as an Aes Sedai.

If you've never read the series or haven't read it in years, this is the book to start with.

Amazing

The Shadow Raising

Wow, it's 12:51 am 1 JAN 2013.... I just couldn't put it down - it's been many years since I've read book 11. Over a decade of time since I've read the original prints of SR. It was equally exciting and an amazing read this time as well as was the 1st! Don't skip any read them all in order and enjoy the genius of Robert Jordan - rest old friend and thank you for the gift of "The Wheel of Time".
