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)

    "More great reading"

    This keeps continuing the great story. One thing the narrators could have done better is listen to each other. With all the strange words that don't always pronounce them the same.

    Story
    "Enough already. I am skipping ahead"

    I literally almost stopped mid-book. I can't take this "women!" and "men!" thing anymore. It is insane that Jordan thinks these people are at all believable in how they think of and treat the opposite sex. Please remove all sentences with the words women and men from all your books immediately for a significant improvement. The over detail and slow story telling are tedious as well but tolerable if I had characters that I am not starting to loath due to the writing. I am going to try skipping to book 11 and continue from there. Based on reviews things get worse before they get better in up coming books. Wish me luck.

    "I can't put it down!"

    Excellent story and narration. I keep reading and listening. Often I read and listen together. Many things gained from the audio book you may miss when reading.
