The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind.

In Tar Valon, Min sees portents of hideous doom. Will the White Tower itself be broken?

In the Two Rivers, the Whitecloaks ride in pursuit of a man with golden eyes, and in pursuit of the Dragon Reborn.

In Cantorin, among the Sea Folk, High Lady Suroth plans the return of the Seanchan armies to the mainland.

In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve.

Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn.....

  • Amazing

    By Brett Evans
    Second time reading the series and I'm still staying up into the wee hours of the morning reading. Never been more into any series ever!
  • Great!

    By Brad Splatt
    A great book. It isn't boring and it doesn't have things taken directly from LOTR, just some similar things, as with almost every other book of its type. Overall a great book. I am only 15, but I enjoy reading, and this series sure does keep you with something good to read for a LONG time.
  • Unoriginal, boring, repetitive

    By whatever_whatever
    The whole Wheel of Time series is incredibly boring and repetitive. To top it off, huge tracks of the mythology is directly ripped of from The Lord of the Rings and other JRR Tolkien books. It's very blatant at times, with some characters directly lifted from Tolkien with just some changes to the spelling of their names. Shameful. Go read Tolkien, or Game of Thrones, but skip this book and this entire series.

    Wow, it's 12:51 am 1 JAN 2013.... I just couldn't put it down - it's been many years since I've read book 11. Over a decade of time since I've read the original prints of SR. It was equally exciting and an amazing read this time as well as was the 1st! Don't skip any read them all in order and enjoy the genius of Robert Jordan - rest old friend and thank you for the gift of "The Wheel of Time".

  • Best Book of the Series

    By Ghoullio
    I had forgotten how long TSR was until I started reading it about two weeks ago. It has become my favorite of the series. It details the history of the world before and during the Breaking. The characters become greater than they were and finally get a sense of what they are dealing with. It is the beginning of Mat and Perrin's journey to become the men they are later in the series. Rand comes into his own and accepts his destiny as the Dragon Reborn and begins to plot his offense against the Forsaken. The main story, in my opinion, though happens in Tanchico when Nynaeve faces down Moghedian and realizes her own true potential as an Aes Sedai. If you've never read the series or haven't read it in years, this is the book to start with.
