Book Description

Nov. 15 1995 Wheel of Time (Book 6)
In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times bestseller The Fires of Heaven, we plunge again into Robert Jordan's extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world:

On the slopes of Shayol Ghul, the Myrddraal swords are forged, and the sky is not the sky of this world;

In Salidar the White Tower in exile prepares an embassy to Caemlyn, where Rand Al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, holds the throne--and where an unexpected visitor may change the world....

In Emond's Field, Perrin Goldeneyes, Lord of the Two Rivers, feels the pull of ta'veren to ta'veren and prepares to march....

Morgase of Caemlyn finds a most unexpected, and quite unwelcome, ally....And south lies Illian, where Sammael holds sway....

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

While Jordan's prose is sometimes bloated, he rises above his Tolkien-influenced contemporaries (Brooks, Eddings, et al.) with his skill at narrative pacing and his ability to create fully realized characters (though his treatment of sexuality will appeal primarily to adolescents). In this sixth volume in the immensely popular The Wheel of Time series (The Fires of Heaven), Rand al'Thor consolidates his power base and attempts to come to a rapprochement with the Aes Sedai, the female mystics who channel the One Power and whose schism lends tension to his meetings with them. The schism has unexpected consequences for three young women: determined Egwene al' Vere, precocious Elayne Trakand and braid-tugging Nynaeve al'Meara. Centering upon that trio's exploits and discoveries, and on Rand's further adventures, this volume offers several major turns of events while laying the groundwork for future intrigues. It may be be several more volumes before Rand al'Thor confronts the Dark One in Tarmon Gai'don ("the last battle"), yet, as Jordan demonstrates here, he's likely to keep his fans interested throughout the long and winding journey. 250,000 first printing; major ad/promo; author tour.

From Library Journal

While the armies of Rand al'Thor, a farm boy cast by destiny into the world-changing role of the Dragon Reborn, continue their progress toward the Last Battle against the forces of the Dark One, other powers seek to exert control over the reluctant hero. Panoramic in concept, yet always focusing on the individuals whose actions make up the unfolding drama, the complex interweaving of plots and counterplots continues to gain momentum. Jordan's talent for sustaining the difficult combination of suspense and resolution, so necessary in a multivolume series such as this one (which includes The Fires of Heaven, LJ 11/15/93), is nothing short of remarkable. Libraries should anticipate considerable demand for this title.

I started reading this series by chance and I can't seem to put it down. I'll be reading it all summer. If you liked Lord of the Rings - then you'll certainly enjoy this series. I recommend this as a great summer read!

Mmmm...how can I possibly review this book and be able to convey the exact JOY I felt at reading it? Let me put it this way. I was vacationing in Florida when I read this book, and we spent an entire day at Disneyland. That night, we got back at about 10:00. I plopped down in bed, but instead of falling asleep (like most people would have after a day like that), I stayed up until 2 A.M. reading Lord of Chaos. It's THAT good.
There were so many plot twists, TONS of surprises. The ending scene was, I believe, one of the best you can ever read in literature. It seriously gave me the shivers. I loved it.
There was just SO MANY good things happening in this book...I really can't describe it. If you're a WoT fan, don't stop now. You'll really love this book. If you haven't read any of the previous books yet, go back and read them IN ORDER.
For anyone who likes to read (and even if you don't) the Wheel of Time series is the best literature has to offer. I mean, it has humor, romance, adventure, suspense, and some pretty creepy parts. What MORE can anyone ask for?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not nearly what it could have been. Nov. 27 2004
By Banana
Okay, before all you hard-core Jordan fans beat me blind for daring to give it less than a four star review, or for all those who are disgusted with the series thus far, let me explain. No, I am no blinded by my love for the series; no, I am not angry at having to trudge through a thousand pages all these books. I don't care. I love this series, and I am dreading the day that the final book comes out, and am rooting along with everybody else for Jordan to decide that he actually will write fifteen books instead of twelve (and maybe even more.) I love longer books, and I love detail. Also, I want to point out that Jordan isn't on the same plane of detail as Tolkien was. Tolkien described scenery; Jordan describes actions. That's a bonus on my clock, because I like actions more than scenery. This book was amazing, and shame on the people who said that nothing happened.
So why am I giving it three stars? Because Jordan should have either made this book five hundred pages or two thousand, and I'm beginning to see a pattern here. In the beginning of the series, Jordan took painstaking time to write battle scenes and war scenes. And they were breathtaking, even for me, who prefers characters over war any time. He knew what he was talking about, since he was actually schooled on warfare. Starting with the Fires of Heaven, he's focusing too much attention on the women, who aren't doing anything. Their chapters would better off be blended into one large mother-chapter. If Jordan included half the stuff that goes on in Lord of Chaos, then it would be two thousand pages, and I would prefer ten thousand pages if it included those missing events.
Jordan writes the afternoon-tea well, I'll give him that. I'm not saying they suck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!! July 4 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lord of chaos is the book that truly defined the wheel of time series. It does not just follow Rand, Mat, Egwene, Elayne, Nynaeve, and the others, it truly opens your eyes to the darkness surrounding them all. It shows what the Dark One can do as the Lord of the Grave with resurrecting the forsaken. I read this book in five days. It keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is the BEST ONE YET!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, little repetative. March 4 2004
The sixth book of Robert Jordan is good but somewhat repetative. The plot developes a little more, but not like it did in the first 4 books where their was more action. The book is ok to read and I will read all the rest of the Wheel of Time series.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best in an Already Great Series Feb. 22 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
There are tons of reviews out there that will tell you that this is a horrible book, slow, verbose, and dull, and just as many that will tell you this book is the best they've ever read, etc. The truth lies somewhere in between. If you like Robert Jordan's previous works (which, seeing as you're considering reading the sixth, you probably do) then you are going to love this book. The conclusion of this book (which the cover - horribly drawn as it is - alludes to) is arguably the best of all those in the Wheel of Time series. It's dramatic, frought with tension, and rather chilling. Personally, I feel that the 600+ pages that get you there aren't that bad either; they are also some of the best Jordan has written. If you don't like his style or his story, though, you won't like it and I don't recommend it. It's as simple as that. But for any Jordan fan - well, what are you waiting for?
