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 and listeners 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. 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...

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Robert Jordan writes with the stark vision of light and darkness, and sometimes childish sense of wonder, that permeates J.R.R. Tolkien's work. His style is undebatably his own. The Pittsburgh Press
From start to finish, the narrators are fresh and engaged as they draw out the story's humor and suspense. AudioFile
A complex tapestry of fascinating characters, descriptive details and events. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves epic fantasy. Carol Lynn Ukockis, Galactic Dispatch
An exciting, well-written adventure, Jordan offers distinctive heroes and themes, including an interesting look at relations between the sexes. Milwaukee Sentinel
Fast and absorbing...will keep the reader...entranced. Publishers Weekly
“Large and splendid. The saga reaches a new level of emotional impact. Chicago Sun-Times
