Description

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.
Elayne, Aviendha, and Mat come ever closer to the bowl ter'angreal that may reverse the world's endless heat wave and restore natural weather. Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel—Sea Folk, Windfinders, Wise Ones, and some surprising others. And above all, Rand faces the dread Forsaken Sammael, in the shadows of Shadar Logoth, where the blood-hungry mist, Mashadar, waits for prey.
TV series update: "Sony will produce along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce. Judkins previously worked on shows such as ABC's "Agents of SHIELD," the Netflix series "Hemlock Grove," and the NBC series "Chuck." Red Eagle partners Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will executive produce along with Radar's Ted Field and Mike Weber. Darren Lemke will also executive produce, with Jordan's widow Harriet McDougal serving as consulting producer." —Variety

      • content: “Kate Reading and Michael Kramer continue as narrators, providing a familiar characterization and delivery style for fans of the series. Fresh and engaged, they both maintain a strong pace, and, as they pass the story between them, complement one another. As new characters are introduced, they fit them into the narration. In the hands of Kramer and Reading, this book goes by much more quickly than its length would suggest.”

        Starred review from May 13, 1996
        The seventh volume of Jordan's bestselling high fantasy series carries on the tradition of colossal, dauntingly complex storytelling established by the previous entries (Lord of Chaos, 1994, etc.). In a richly woven post-holocaust world where magic is normally a woman's monopoly and a man who can use it is a menace, Rand al'Thor, a sheepherder, discovered that he could "channel"; he and his companions have gone on to set their world aflame. Here, Rand is engaged in a fight for control of the weather and of the growing number of men and women who have turned out to be magic-wielders. The narrative employs elements of realism rare in high fantasy, including the sense that innocent bystanders are being mauled in an epic joust of magical giants. There's wit at work here, too, in Jordan's exploration of the possibilities created by women being the magic workers. All this comes at the price of enough characters, institutions, spells, countries and so on to intimidate any reader who hasn't followed Rand's adventures from the beginning--and the author is still adding complications. A glossary helps, though, and fans of the series will gobble down this generous addition. Major ad/promo; deluxe leather-bound limited edition.

      • premium: True

      • content: Kate Reading and Michael Kramer return with the seventh in the Wheel of Time series. The quest of Elayne, Aniendha, and Matt continues as they gather together women who channel to restore the damage that has been done to the weather in this post-apocalyptic world. Rand continues in his efforts to maintain his equilibrium as he battles against the shadows of Shadar. This complex series is best tackled in sequence. Kramer's characterization of Elayne when she in her mode of imperious daughter is a bit exaggerated. But, in general, the two narrators pass the story back and forth seamlessly, keeping their characters well in hand. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine

      • content: The seventh volume in the Wheel of Time fantasy saga continues the quest to restore natural weather conditions to the world and end the terrible heat wave. Mark Rolston narrates with a rich, expressive voice, very much at home in this fantasy setting. M.A.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
