The acclaimed, nationally bestselling fifth book of the Wheel of Time series. The Last Battle is approaching rapidly, for the seals of the Dark One's prison are beginning to crumble.

Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

About the Author

Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.
Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.
Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.

Malva Greenbottle, May 29, 2011 (view all comments by Malva Greenbottle)
So many people I've talked to about this series have complained about how slow and repetitive it is. But they must all forget that all of the recapping was necessary. When these books were first coming out there was huge gaps of time between new releases, usually a year or more. With so much going on, and the depth of detail Robert Jordan puts into this, his life's work, much would be lost, due to forgetfulness on the reader's behalf, that the story would suffer. All though it's understandable how it could get annoying if you're reading the series back to back. That said, let's get to the book.

What to say that won't give away too much?
This is the book that finally takes you into the world of the mysterious Aiel and their desert home. Siuan Sanche is introduced as a regular character. Some even run away to join the circus. Seriously.

This is a highly recommended book.
