Publisher's Summary

In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times best seller The Shadow Rising, Robert Jordan again plunges us into his extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world:

...Into the forbidden city of Rhuidean, where Rand al'Thor, now the Dragon Reborn, must conceal his present endeavor from all about him, even Egwene and Moiraine.

...Into the Amyrlin's study in the White Tower, where Amyrlin, Flaida do Avriny a 'Roihan, is weaving new plans.

...Into the luxurious hidden chamber where the Forsaken Rahvin is meeting with three of his fellows to ensure their ultimate victory over the Dragon.

...Into the Queen's court in Caemlyn, where Morgase is curiously in thrall to the handsome Lord Gaebril.

For once the Dragon walks the land, the fires of Heaven fall where they will, until all men's lives are ablaze. And in Shayol Ghul, the Dark One stirs.

What the Critics Say

"Jordan deftly weaves details from previous books into this narrative." (Publishers Weekly)
"Fires of Heaven upholds the very high standards of this major fantasy epic, with battle scenes, comic interludes, and character development all reaching perhaps the highest point in a work that has lacked for none of these." (Booklist)
"Jordan's epic saga of a world threatened by evil incarnate builds steadily as separate strands of a complex plot begin to come together. Fans of this richly detailed and vividly imagined series will not be disappointed." (Library Journal)

    "Great Next Part"


    This book felt like the most relevant since book 2. Not that the others weren't relevant, but this one had a lot of points that felt key to the story whereas the last couple only felt like they had a couple and the rest was build-up.

    But why are you even reading this? If you've gotten through 4, you probably already know what you're doing. Certainly this is not likely to be the book that convinces you to stop reading.

    "Generally disappointed"

    The cast and readings of this series are exceptional. But the series itself is like a long slow continuous train wreck. It was recommended to me, but I found the character development to be childish. And I keep expecting the characters to show an emotional growth. But the way Robert Jordan has written them, just makes me want to take a couple of them out to the woodshed. I've gotten this far, because it's like watching a soap opera. Yeah, I know it's not great but I've kind of gotten hooked, and I just keep going. I think it has so jumped the shark that I finally decided I can't take it anymore. Robert Jordan's view of male /female relationships is abysmal. And he keeps hammering home the same sentiments over and over again.

    "Exceptional"

    I really enjoy the wheel of time and this book is up there among the best of them. Yes it does slow to a crawl at times, but the payoffs are always worth the while.
