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 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.

On the slopes of Shayol Ghul, the Myrddraal swords are forged, and the sky is not the sky of this world;

In Salidar the White Tower in exile prepares an embassy to Caemlyn, where Rand Al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, holds the throne--and where an unexpected visitor may change the world....

In Emond's Field, Perrin Goldeneyes, Lord of the Two Rivers, feels the pull of ta'veren to ta'veren and prepares to march...

Morgase of Caemlyn finds a most unexpected, and quite unwelcome, ally....And south lies Illian, where Sammael holds sway...

Lord of Chaos is the sixth book in Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, and from beginning to end, it is filled with action. Jordan keeps readers on their toes throughout the story with intriguing plot twists and revelations that will change the path of the story forever. We start from where we left off with Rand ruling both Caemlyn and Cairhien as the Dragon Reborn. There’s a visitor who wants to see him, and it is none other than the fabled false Dragon Mazrim Taim, who has an ominous gift for Rand. Meanwhile, Egwene is continuing to train with the Wise Ones in dreamwalking, and in her practice, she discovers a secret and gets an offer that will alter her life. Elayne, Nynaeve, and Siuan stay in Salidar, continuing studies of their own while trying to control a figure dangerous beyond their wildest dreams. This is the longest book yet in the series, and because of this, Lord of Chaos has more plot development than any before. In this, there’s a lot of interesting character development, especially for a lot of the Aes Sedai we’ve known a while. The politics of Salidar and the desire to heal the White Tower cause drastic actions from some, and power changes hands, with those passing it often following other agendas. This book explores Aes Sedai custom on a deeper level, and the dynamics of power in all realms of the story become increasingly tense. It’s the first book where Rand no longer has his guide in the ways of the world, so his life and his actions take on a whole new atmosphere. Its length makes it seem a little overwhelming, but it’s worth it. - @freckleface675 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This was one of my favourites in the series, although it is quite long. There is an epic battle at the end (I know my boyfriend loved that part) and also some romance (I liked that part as well). This book was amazing. Keep reading the series!

Book Six- This book is full of suspense, excitement and it kept me on my toes. Robert manages to end each chapter with suspense to keep you reading and until you figure out what happens! I certainly enjoyed this book and I can't wait to read the next book. (: So many important details happened and at moments I was shocked!
