Product Description

From Amazon

This is the second box set in Robert Jordan's epic bestselling series, the Wheel of Time. The first set included The Eye of the World, The Great Hunt, and The Dragon Reborn. The follow-up includes the next three books of the series. The Shadow Rising, The Fires of Heaven, and Lord of Chaos continue the great saga of Rand, the Dragon Reborn in a world broken in two by unimaginably powerful forces.

About the Author

Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.
Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.
Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A world-filling story about the eternal struggle of good versus evil. The main characters all have a clear personality, with their own thoughts and visions about their world, and they each develop separately. A beautiful display of storytelling quality.
I found the books to tell a story well-blanced between characters and general storyline, where the views and notions of each character give the reader a good overview of the direction of the series as a whole.
On the downside: although characters and storyline do develop, they do not really progress. For instance, after six books, Nynaeve still jerks her braid to stop herself from pouting, and Rand finds himself in the same predicament, only on a larger scale. It is stretched out too far. Further, the world in which the book plays seems almost too conveniently limited by the Spine and the Blight. That could also have been done a bit more elaborate.
It also surprised me that since the breaking of the world, 3000 years ago, basic culture has not developed. What was lost in the breaking is only now starting to be rediscovered, and slowly at that.
As to the comparison with The Lord of the Rings, It definitively has similarities, as, I think, any fantasy work of this magnitude will have. However, Jordan has a very distinct style that nowhere gives me the feeling that I'm reading a Tolkien book. The Wheel of Time deserves a place of its own.
All considering, it is definitively one of the best series I've read. It was every bit worth my time. When I started, I read almost full-time for two weeks, finishing the first three books, ca. 2000 pages. I just couldn't stop!

I have read every volume of this apparently unending tome and loved every moment of it. The only series I have read that is comparable is Stephen Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Donaldson, however, knows how to finish what he starts.
Jordan owes it to his readers to reach closure. One book every two years is way too long for a saga to go on. Will I have to reread prior books to maintain the continuity? However, his story and characters are so compelling that each book, with a brief synopsis of the prior one, can stand on its own well. So in short, it needs to end because I can't take the wait anymore! Will the Dragon ultimately go mad and break the world and become the fantasy genre's greatest anti-hero, supplanting Thomas Covenant? Or will I go senile before Robert Jordan ends this series???

I think that a simple five star ratting system is no match for the extravagant writtings of Robert Jordan. He is the most gifted author in this day and age. He has an exellent use of characters, he introduces a single character in a book as an unimportant character and then brings the character back,with importance, in a different book.Most of all I would like to disagree with Cynarion from Melbourne,Australia in complaining about the complexness of Robert Jordan's writting. I think that Cynarion was the one haveing problems keeping with the intertwineing story lines, because I am a fifteen year old male and I have no problem understanding and keeping with the complex story lines behind Robert Jordan books!

This series from Robert Jordan is so interesting and addictive that I can hardly put it down to do anything else. I started reading the series about a month and a half ago, and I haven't stopped reading since. I find myself imagining the world that he creates even when I'm not reading. Jordan describes everything in such detail that you can't help but imagine the world for yourself. The power that the story creates about the realm and the characters makes it seem so much more real. I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out so I can find out what happens to Rand, Mat, Perrin and the rest of the people being pulled along by the three ta'veren to confront the Dark Lord in the last battle.

The wheel of time books are simply; spellbinding. The imagination and innovation in this epic saga rival Stephen Donaldsons' 'Thomas Covenant the unbeliever.' The grand scale can't be compared it stands alone in fantasy literature. Tolkein has for so many years been the yard stick by which others fantasy writers are measured, I believe there is now another yard stick. When a book makes you feel alive, vibrant and intoxicated it must be good. All of the books in the wheel of time series have had this effect on me. My heartfelt thanks go to Robert for giving me this gift. My only request is Robert hurry to write Book 9. If anyone can help me with an expected date I would be eternally grateful.

I am currently reading book four of this rather epic 13 book (so far) series. If not for Tolkien, I'm sure Jordan could have started the genre himself. This series is an excellent example of a fantasy. Magic, monsters, conflict, its all there. The one thing that I found with this story is; I have yet to find a lull in the story line. Like most journeys, sometimes it can get boring and long (Frodo and Sam through the lands of Mordor), but Jordan seems to keep the pace going and so far (through four books) I have yet to find a lull in the story line. Excellent choice if your a fan of the genre, or if you want to become one. Jordan is spot on.
