Book Description

Nov. 28 2006 Wheel of Time (Book 11)
The Wheel of Time turns, and Robert Jordan gives us the eleventh volume of his extraordinary masterwork of fantasy.

The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off. But his attempt to make a truce with the Seanchan is shadowed by treachery that may cost him everything. Whatever the price, though, he must have that truce. And he faces other dangers. There are those among the Forsaken who will go to any length to see him dead--and the Black Ajah is at his side....
 
Unbeknownst to Rand, Perrin has made his own truce with the Seanchan. It is a deal made with the Dark One, in his eyes, but he will do whatever is needed to rescue his wife, Faile, and destroy the Shaido who captured her. Among the Shaido, Faile works to free herself while hiding a secret that might give her her freedom or cause her destruction. And at a town called Malden, the Two Rivers longbow will be matched against Shaido spears.
 
Fleeing Ebou Dar through Seanchan-controlled Altara with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, Mat attempts to court the woman to whom he is half-married, knowing that she will complete that ceremony eventually. But Tuon coolly leads him on a merry chase as he learns that even a gift can have deep significance among the Seanchan Blood and what he thinks he knows of women is not enough to save him. For reasons of her own, which she will not reveal until a time of her choosing, she has pledged not to escape, but Mat still sweats whenever there are Seanchan soldiers near. Then he learns that Tuon herself is in deadly danger from those very soldiers. To get her to safety, he must do what he hates worse than work....
 
In Caemlyn, Elayne fights to gain the Lion Throne while trying to avert what seems a certain civil war should she win the crown....
 
In the White Tower, Egwene struggles to undermine the sisters loyal to Elaida from within....
 
The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believes are fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes. Even the White Tower itself is no longer a place of safety. Now Rand, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and Elayne, Nynaeve and Lan, and even Loial, must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, good series. March 19 2014

I enjoyed the book and enjoyed the series. It was a big time commitment with the length and number of books, but worth it. I felt like I'd left an old friend behind when I finished them all.

Arrived in good time. Item is in perfect condition. Great price. Cost far less than a new copy from a store and was
in better condition than a lot of thumbed through copies seen at book stores.

Finally action sees its way back into the books. I always enjoyed the TWOT series yet I must say a few of the books were punctured by slow never-ending scenes which somewhat broke the momentum of the read. Needless to say I will hop back into the next one when it arrives.

I am a fan of Robert Jordan, and it was one of his books in the series that I did not have. I am still reading it and as usual, his books are excellent reading material.

4.0 out of 5 stars This one flows much better Feb. 11 2012
By JohnnyG
Format:Hardcover
I've been a loyal reader of the series, and this book begins to pick up again and has a few surprises along the way, which will have readers feeling relieved after reading book 10.
I've known for a while that Brandon Sanderson would be finishing the series which motivated me to get through book 10 and this.
I will say that the book at times does suffer from Jordan's characterstic attention to detail of what each character is wearing and setting the environment. Some readers may enjoy this, but I found at times I would have to read 2-3 pages of it and it would lose my attention.
Overall 4 stars because I am a loyal reader and look forward to finishing the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Score this one for Jordan Dec 29 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Huge Improvement June 3 2010
By Ken S
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I nearly stopped reading this series after Crossroads of Twilight, but tried Knife of Dreams out. Let me just say that if you can get through books 9 and 10, you MUST read this, it is well worth the wait. Finally the plot takes off and keeps you glued to the pages (well in comparison with the last two), and events finally take shape. Tarmon Gai'don looks to be around the corner (about bloody time), and the characters (mainly Egwene) begin to make smart decisions instead of always making the worst possible one and the worst possible time. Believe me, well worth the read and well, well worth the wait.
