Description
The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and go.
What was, what will be, and what is, may yet
fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon
ride again on the winds of time.

In this volume, 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.

He taught himself to read when he was four and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. After graduating from The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics, he served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army, earning the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Bronze Star with "V," and two Vietnamese Crosses of Gallantry. Jordan died from complications of a rare blood disease. He passed away in his birthplace of Charleston, South Carolina, where he lived with his wife, Harriet.

        Kate Reading is the recipient of three AudioFile Earphones Awards, and has narrated everything from Patricia Cornwell to George Eliot. Her favorite BOT recordings include Like Water for ChocolateMiddlemarch, and Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Times series, which she narrated with her husband, Michael Kramer.

        Michael Kramer is an actor, director, and narrator. He has recorded more than 100 audiobooks, as well as titles for the Library of Congress Talking Books program. Among the recognition he has garnered for his narration are AudioFile magazine’s Earphones Award and the Torgi Award.

        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
