Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers 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.

The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope.

Unbeknownst to Rand, Perrin has made his own truce with the Seanchan. It is a deal made with the Dark One, in his eyes, but he will do whatever is needed to rescue his wife, Faile, and destroy the Shaido who captured her. Among the Shaido, Faile works to free herself while hiding a secret that might give her her freedom or cause her destruction. And at a town called Malden, the Two Rivers longbow will be matched against Shaido spears.

Fleeing Ebou Dar through Seanchan-controlled Altara with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, Mat attempts to court the woman to whom he is half-married, knowing that she will complete that ceremony eventually. But Tuon coolly leads him on a merry chase as he learns that even a gift can have deep significance among the Seanchan Blood and what he thinks he knows of women is not enough to save him.

In Caemlyn, Elayne fights to gain the Lion Throne while trying to avert what seems a certain civil war should she win the crown...

In the White Tower, Egwene struggles to undermine the sisters loyal to Elaida from within...

The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believes are fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes. Even the White Tower itself is no longer a place of safety. Now Rand, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and Elayne, Nynaeve and Lan, and even Loial, must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read Yes it's long, but I'm on a marathon to read the whole series, and there is some good resolution in this book to ongoing plot lines. This is as far as I read had first time around, so I'm excited to move on to books 12 through 14.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst of the lot, but not all bad This is, so far, the worst book I had read in the Wheel of Time series. Jordan continues his regular habit of having unrealistic relationships, thinly veiled sexual innuendo and immature characters. He depends overly much on his characters acting like idiots to inject drama into his story. All of this may be forgiven if the story is good. The problem now is that the first 1-2 of the book is boring. The second half redeems it, bringing it to two stars, but Jordan could have easily told just the second half and saved the readers the torture of the first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! The entire Wheel of Time series has been spectacular from start to finish! I have enjoyed reading them all - Jordan has created an amazingly unique world, with very vivid and fleshed out characters that really change throughout the series. There is plenty of humor, and suspense galore - I can't say enough about it! I eagerly await the final volume in the series - it is quite sad that Robert Jordan passed away, I hope the new writer can do justice to his epic series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from two thumbs up This book was a great read and definitely one of the best in the Wheel of Time series. Whether you like Rand, Mat, or Perrin, there's plenty of story to go around. There are thrilling action sequences and unexpected plot twists that give the story a fast-paced and exciting feel, and add to the tense mood building up to the final battle to defeat the dark one. Whether you're already a fan of the series or a newcomer to it, this book is definitely a great read, although I do recommend reading the first ten books before jumping in to KOD.

Editorial Reviews

"The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience, and the . . . evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of the unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades." -The New York Times on The Wheel of Time"The Wheel of Time [is] rapidly becoming the definitive American fantasy saga. It is a fantasy tale seldom equaled and still less often surpassed in English." -Chicago Sun-Times on The Wheel of Time"Jordan has a powerful vision of good and evil--but what strikes me as most pleasurable . . . is all the fascinating people moving through a rich and interesting world." -Orson Scott Card on The Wheel of Time"The scope of Jordan's vision is immense and incisive. Highly recommended." -Library Journal on Knife of Dreams"The breakneck pace, lyrical beauty, and astonishing scope of the early Wheel of Time volumes established Jordan as one of the top writers in the Tolkien tradition." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Knife of Dreams"Superlatively executed world and [a] worthy company of characters." -Booklist on Knife of Dreams"Jordan quickly thrusts his reader into his world. Fans of the series will love this entry and will not be disappointed. The book is a masterpiece that leaves the reader begging for the next installment." -Voices of Youth Advocates on Knife of Dreams"The author packs the pages with one explosive showdown after another." -Romantic Times BookClub
