Amazon.com Exclusive Content


Amazon.com's Significant Seven
Robert Jordan kindly agreed to take the life quiz we like to give to all our authors: the Amazon.com Significant Seven.

Q: What book has had the most significant impact on your life?
A: The King James version of the Bible. That seems a cliche, but I can't think of any other book that has had as large an impact in shaping who I am.

Q: You are stranded on a desert island with only one book, one CD, and one DVD--what are they?
A: The one book would be whatever book I was currently writing. I mean, I hate falling behind in the work. The one CD would contain the best encyclopedia I could find on desert island survival. The DVD would contain as much of Beethoven, Mozart, and Duke Ellington as I could cram onto it.

Q: What is the worst lie you've ever told?
A: It's hard to think of one since I am genetically incapable of lying to women and that takes out 52% of the population right there.

Q: Describe the perfect writing environment.
A: Any place that has my computer, a CD player for music, a comfortable chair that won't leave me with a backache at the end of a long day, and very little interruption.

Q: If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?
A: He kept trying to get better at it.

Q: Who is the one person living or dead that you would like to have dinner with?
A: My wife before anybody else on Earth living or dead. That's a no-brainer.

Q: If you could have one superpower what would it be?
A: That depends. If I'm feeling altruistic, it would be the ability to heal anything with a touch, if that can be called a superpower. If I'm not feeling very altruistic, it would be the ability to read other people's minds, to finally be able to get to the bottom of what they really mean and what their motivations are.

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. The previous book in Jordan's massive Wheel of Time, Crossroads of Twilight, may have come out in 2003, but don't let that fool you; the 11th tome in this epic fantasy is the one Jordan fans have been eagerly waiting for the better part of a decade. The breakneck pace, lyrical beauty and astonishing scope of the early Wheel of Time volumes established Jordan as one of the top writers in the Tolkien tradition. While more recent entries have maintained that beauty and scope, the pace has slowed to a crawl as the central characters dispersed in six directions. In contrast, the latest explodes with motion, as multiple plot lines either conclude or advance, and the march to Tarmon Gai'don—the climactic last battle between the Dragon Reborn and the Dark One—begins in earnest. Faile's captivity with the Shaido, Mat's pursuit of Tuon and Elayne's war for Caemlyn come to a close, while Egwene's capture brings the Aes Sedai war to the heart of the Tower. Jordan has said that readers will be sweating by the end of the book, and he's probably right. Sweating or not, they'll also be dreading the long year or two before the 12th installment.

Yes finally this book takes the series back to where it originally was...battles, the return of the shadow...all the characters, it was a good read. A few drawbacks still, like all that mumble jumble walking around the white tower figuring out who was conspiring and plotting against whom and so forth. However, the best part about this book is that you don't even have to read book ten to know everything that is going on. I read half of CoT before I put it down, and picked up KoD and pretty much figured out everything that had transpired through book ten. Overall it was enjoyable, it seems that book twelve actually might be the last of the series since the intensity increases dramatically. For those who have lost faith in this series, give it one more shot with this book.

Jordan's 11th outing of Rand, Nynaeve, Egwene and Mat is great! I was pleasantly surprised when I finished this one, unlike the last 3 or 4 of the series, in which I was still wondering why I was wasting $35.00 on a hardcover, and often wondering why I was still reading the series at all. Knife of Dreams was fast paced in most places, and gave the reader much satisfaction. Jordan resolved plot lines that tended to drag on and on (can anyone say Faile and the Shaido - finally done), and further introduced many new pieces of information that were very intruiging (ie the state of the Amayar). He did not dwell on the hundreds of pages of descriptions that tended to be repetitive as he has done in the past. He seemed to only include those that were necessary (except the occasional Elayne foray). Looking forward to what we think might be the final volume of the series as there were many many references to everyone preparing for Tarmon Gaidon. Wonder if this will be the title of the next one? If you were wondering why you were hanging on to the series for so long, here is your answer in Knife of Dreams.

Just so you know, i wont be giving out every plot line in the book in this review.
I have been a big fan of the books, enjoying all of them, except of course for book 10, which i think Jordan wrote because he had to present a book on a deadline, i mean how can you write 700 pages of nothing?? Anyway, back to the far superior Knife of dreams.
This book is great, the opening of the prologue is awesome, but then after that it slows down somewhat, i was beginning to worry and then boom, it explodes to life, everything that you read is happening for a reason.
Back again is the pace and direction from the first 6 books with the intrigue from 7, 8 and 9.
Personally, i enjoyed all of the characters in this book, Rand is great when he turns up,some things he does with the one power and a little help are AMAZING!!! Mat is cool as ever, finally geting to do what he does best and setting up some great things for the next book and perrin is getting darker and darker. And Cadsuane is one of the best additional characters.
I wish there was a bit more of the forsaken, i mean its the penultimate book and they are still pretty much just meeting in strange places trying to figure out how to be nae'blis.
Overall i would have given this book 4.5 stars, but still havent figured out how to do it on amazon. Its a shame that book 10 exists, as surely this would have been released as book 10 two years ago and i would now have finished reading book 11, which would have theoretically finished the series.
I am sure that book 11 will rock, it has to, Jordan has set up so many plot lines for all the charactersthat im sure he wont disappoint to deliver. I cant bloody wait!
one last thing, i hope he calls book 12 Tarmon Gaidan

For those who have been worried about this series being caught in a downwards spiral that is heading nowhere Knife of Dreams the 11th and second final book in the Wheel of Time series will put those worries to rest.
This book has a pace of actions and plot movement that hasn't been seen since Lord of Chaos (book 6). And to be honest I think it could be easily debated that Book 11 exceeds book 6 in this area.
I think more things happened in the Prologue than in all of Crossroad of Twilight. And around 6 or so long running plotlines that have been going on for as long as since the 3rd book are either resolved completely or in some cases enough so that I wouldn't be upset it I didn't see the characters in that plot again.
The Body count in this book is in the HUNDREDS of thousands. As another reviewer said in one battle alone Rand and a few dozen others take on 100 000 Trollocs in a great One Power battle that is easily one of the best in the series.
Oh, and the person who said Egwene is one of the main focuses of this book is full of it. Egwene only has about 2 or 3 chapters but unlike previous books, they aren't a chore to read and are in my opinion the best Ewgene chapters since book 5. Rand isn't in the book too much either but he's in a lot more scenes than in book 10. And all of his Chapters are really good; with some top notch plot development. About 75% percent of the book is split up about evenly between Mat, Perrin and Elayne. I enjoyed reading all 3 of these and all of them are pretty much tied up nicely by the end of the book.
