Publisher's Summary

In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times best seller The Fires of Heaven, we plunge again into Robert Jordan's extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world. As the Wheel turns, the winds of fate roil across the land. Rand al 'Thor struggles to unite the nations for the Last Battle when the Dark One will break free into the world to spring the snares laid by the immortal Forsaken for unwary humankind. The White Tower in Tar Valon, under the Amyrlin Elaida, has decided that Rand must be controlled immediately. Drought and summer heat linger into winter and Nineveh al'Meara and Elayne, the Daughter-Heir of Andor, begin a desperate search for the fabled ter'angreal that may enable them to restore normal weather conditions.


What the Critics Say

Dumai's Wells

Wow! This is the first real battle since Tear and The People of The Dragon. And a brilliant finish to the book. Egwene Al'Vere comes into her own, and Matt Cauthon's character really starts to shine. While some of the books I think are better than this one, it is a key pivotal moment in the saga, and not to be missed. And as with all of the Wheel of Time books, not to be missed!! I have read this book twice, and listened to it 4 times now, while progressing through the series towards book 14. Each time, the battle at Dumai's Wells at the end of the book just makes me shiver with excitement as The Dragon comes into his own, and The Black Tower shows what it can do.

I say MogaDEEN you say MogIDion

I love the wheel of time series - love something BIG I can really lose myself in - and I love the readers too BUT!

(It's a big BUT that needs it's own paragraph!). WHy oh Why oh Why can Kate and Michael not AGREE on how they will pronounce people's names and then STICK to it?!!! I can just about live with Kate's "Mwahrain" as opposed to Michael's "Mohrain" but what I don't like is when Kate spends 5 books saying "MogaDEEN" and then suddenly switches to "MogIDION" now in book 6 making me start and feel irritated every time. I can just imagine Kate going "Mogadeen, Mogidion, whatever!" but really Kate, when you've been given such a big contract you really could pay more attention to detail. Not only could, I would go so far as to say, must. Let's hope my words sink in.
