In the continuing Wheel of Time saga, Rand and Min are on the run, while Black Tower leader Mazrim Taim is exposed, a Seanchan princess arrives in Ebou Dar, and the schemers of the White Tower are beset by rebels.

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.

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?

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

This series, the Wheel of Time, is really one of the best fantasy series out there. It is necessary to start at the beginning to understand and ponder the plot twists, relationships, and mysteries in the series. Pretty much every sentence is carefully planned out to provide clues useful later on, etc. One thing I enjoy about the series is the unparalleled (in the books I've read) description of relationships, especially between men and women.
Many describe Winter's Heart as boring, and it isn't the most exciting book of the series. However, there is plenty of information in this book that it is important to be armed with in the next books. The series seems to get better with every book, as the climax is building up, and each book branches more and more to include the whole plot. The parts with Perrin until book twelve may bore you though. :D

I enjoyed this book and highly recommend anyone interested in this genre to start at the beginning and read your way through the entire series.

I just finished this book. I've considered portions of a number of the books in the series slow reading at times, but there always plenty to excite me and make me anxious to obtain the next book and read it as soon as I finish one.

I learned about this series from another reader who initiated a conversation when he saw me reading one of Brian Sandersons books.

When you finish this series or while you're waiting on a copy of the next book to become available at your local library, check out Brian Sandersons books.

This book was probably my least favourite of the series, but I still liked it. Fans of this series should continue to read on, as the books really start to pick up again with book 12. But I still think that every book is good.
