    The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out in The Shadow Rising, book four of the Wheel of Time, as The Shadow is rising to cover humankind. 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.

    "Definately worth reading"
    Overall

    Jordan has successfully created an interesting new fantasy world, but the strength in his characters, the hardships they go through, the obligations that pull them so many ways you never know which way they'll choose, makes it something more. The story divisions are becoming a little hard to follow though--I think it splits to at least 4 different locations, not to mention points of view.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    Jody R. Nathan says: "Wonderful epic story"
    "Japanese art"
    Overall

    I tried this book because I generally like Japanese stories. I really enjoyed the artistic quality of the imagery, the incredible honor yet powerful feeling in the characters, and the little bit of magic thrown in.

    The Wheel of Time returns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Karl Knight says: "Top Quality Audio Entertainment"
    "Definately worth reading"
    Overall

    I really like the way Jordan plays off the reluctant hero. His insights into men and women's views of the opposite sex are often funny and help relieve the seriousness of the story, which is, as always, incredibly original and well written.

    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. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of. Now, the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

    Tony Deleeuw says: "Great Series, Great Readers"
    "Definately worth reading"
    Overall

    The story gets even more interesting as Rand begins to know his powers, and more tense as it becomes evident that any one could serve the shadow. I liked all the action in this one.

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Greg says: "This Series Rocks"
    "Definately worth reading"
    Overall

    Robert Jordan had a very new and interesting take on fantasy. Although the description can be exhaustive in detail, you feel like you know each of the characters and are part of their relationships.
