Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet I haven't read past this book yet but out of the seven books in the series that I have read (new spring included) it has by far been the best one. As one of the reviews on the hardcover edition states, there are many new developments that I feel help to set the stage for future books. A very satisfyingly installment in a satisfying series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the Series So Far! Lord of Chaos is by far the best book of the series so far, first time in a few years since I finished a book and felt elated to be done, and I mean that in the best way possible. It is an incredible book that digs deeper than ever into character development, the prophecies, and intricacies of the Wheel of Time world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ten book series - all great !!! This ten book series by Robert Jordan following Rand al'Thor and his friends from the Two Rivers Area is a must read. Known as the Wheel of Time series one book will drag you into the next as our heros fight evil itself for possession of the very world. Each book is crafted with care and the tenth book will have you as spellbound as the first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tolkien's world with a whole new Twist Robert Jordan is an amazing writer. I was just blown away by The Wheel of Time Series. It is unfolding into a world like Tolkien's with different Characters and twists. So far I have read up to about the first 30 pages of Winter's heart and I am absolutely enthralled. I am a very fast reader and usually get through series' far too quickly, and then am left with this empty void, and the words I need a book scribbled all over the walls of my mind. But this is perfect. By time I'm done I'll be able to start all over again! This series is DEFINETELY a must read!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of the series yet! This has to be, by far, the best book of the series. I couldn't put it down. Jordan's choice of words for description puts you right into the story. You literally feel like you're there. By far the most exciting chapter yet chronicaling the adventures of Rand Al'Thor and the rest. This would definitely be a must-read for any Robert Jordan fan, or a fan of good reading in general.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robert Jordan, "Lord of Writing" Never was there a better series of books. Robert Jordan has combined magic (both good and evil), adventure, mystery, and suspense into this amazing book. It is the 6th book of the series the "Wheel of Time" which reveals the destiny for a young man named Rand al'Thor. A man who wields a very strong power, has a madman who speaks in his head, and will eventually go mad because of an evil taint in his power's source. If you like long books full of action and suspense then read Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time" series. You'll never have made a better choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING! The best book of the series with lots of action and plot development. This takes fantasy to new heights. It the best reading you will ever do. Amazing plot developments and real, three-dimensional characters. For those who have not read any of this series, do so NOW!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wheel of Time Book 6 The most terrifying thing imaginable has happened. The schism in the white tower has now become irreparable as the rebel members of the Aes Sedai have elected their own "Amyrlin in exile". To compound this problem, Rand has created his own army of followers who can all reach the male side of the one power, which can make them all insane. This is one of the most fascinating series I have ever read, but be warned! -- each book is approximately 1000 pages, so the series (so far), is about 6000 pages! If you're up to the challenge, then immerse yourself in the world of Robert Jordan.

Read from the Book

CHAPTER 1   Lion on the Hill     The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Are by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose among brown-thicketed hills in Cairhien. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning. Westward the wind blew over abandoned villages and farms, many only jumbles of charred timber. War had racked Cairhien, war and civil war, invasion and chaos, and even now that it was done, insofar as it was done, only a handful began to trickle back to their homes. The wind held no moisture, and the sun tried to sear away what little remained in the land. Where the small town of Maerone faced larger Aringill across the River Erinin, the wind crossed into Andor. Both towns baked, and if more prayers for rain rose in Aringill, where refugees from Cairhien jammed inside the walls like fish in a cask, even the soldiers packed around Maerone offered up words to the Creator, sometimes drunkenly, sometimes fervently. Winter should have been beginning to send out tendrils, the first snows long past, and those who sweated feared the reason it was not so, though few dared voice those fears. Westward the wind blew, stirring drought-shriveled leaves on the trees, riffling the surface of shrinking
