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.

Rand is on the run with Min, and in Cairhein, Cadsuane is trying to figure out where he is headed. Rand's destination is, in fact, one she has never considered.

Mazrim Taim, leader of the Black Tower, is revealed to be a liar. But what is he up to?

Faile, with the Aiel Maidens, Bain and Chiad, and her companions, Queen Alliandre and Morgase, is prisoner of Savanna's sept.

Perrin is desperately searching for Faile. With Elyas Machera, Berelain, the Prophet and a very mixed "army" of disparate forces, he is moving through country rife with bandits and roving Seanchan. The Forsaken are ever more present, and united, and the man called Slayer stalks Tel'aran'rhiod and the wolfdream.

In Ebou Dar, the Seanchan princess known as Daughter of the Nine Moons arrives--and Mat, who had been recuperating in the Tarasin Palace, is introduced to her. Will the marriage that has been foretold come about?

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh Not the best of the series, by far. Slow, and way too many unimportant characters popping up. As a whole, this series is amazing, but this book is forgettable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Winter's Heart- Set faster tempo I've been reading the Wheel of Time series back to back and felt that books 4 through 8 were slow paced and long drawn out. Many times I thought I would give up on the series but Winter's Heart has restored my enthusiasm. The tempo was faster with many exciting moments. Now I look forward to book 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome The ending was a cliffhanger

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A triumphant Come back After the disaster that was books seven and eight Jordan is back good and strong in Winter's Heart. The plot is moving straight forward with an ending the says "the days are short, the end is near". Jordan is winding up for his finale, and doing a marvelous job. He has restored my faith in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hmmm... Great book. I love all the books in the series. I will however have to read them again. The series has drawn on so long that it is starting to wear me thin. Though I greatly enjoyed the books, I've been skimming through chapters of the last two books just looking for the action. Maybe it has been drawn on for too long? Then I realize that I certainly do not want it to end. I love these books far too much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from can we move on yet? Wow, what started off as one of the best fantasy series I have ever read has gone on for way too long. I started to lose interest after the seventh book and only buy them now for the sake of completing the series. However even that is starting to wear thin fast and I am not sure if I will buy the next one. It was a good thing, but its time to end it before it starts getting remembered for the wrong reasons.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An Okay book The book itself is not too bad, but I am starting to get sick of having to keep track of 6,000,000 different characters. Maybe Jordon could finish up a few of the plot lines so that we can get back to more important matters. For that matter, do you believe just how many characters this man puts into his books? He gives even the most inconsequential characters names. For the last book, I decided to keep a list, so that when he threw in another plot line I would know who he was referring to. By the end of the book I had three pages worth of characters' names, and most of them appeared for only one line of the story. I figured out the secret: If he devotes an entire paragraph to a description of that person, you had better remember who they are, because they will come up in some major role in the next novel. Now that we have to follow so many plot lines, it seems that he barely even scratches the surface of any of them. Two paragraphs on the disappearance of Faile is ridiculous, when it should have been resolved by the end of this novel. ...And it seems that even in the plots that are covered, very little happens. Lets have more action, Mr. Jordan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but... As with (in my opinion) with books 4 through eight, this is a good book. Excellant action at the end, but until then quite slow. I enjoyed his first three books far better, but I encourge Wheel of Time readers to keep reading, because the last battle is coming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Book The best book since The Lord of Chaos, it has a good ending and it will be exciting to read the next one. I urge readers not to throw down the series because of slow 7th and 8th books, because with the last battle coming the books are bound to get better.
