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)

    "Another Great Addition to Modern Fantasy Gold"

    As with the previous books, excellent narration of some of the greatest modern fantasy ever written. Again, the interview with the late Robert Jordan is fantastic despite being the same one from previous books. Some pronunciations in this book are altered from previous books, specifically names, but to no great detriment of the overall story. Definitely my favorite in the series thus far. Sets the tone for the next book, which reveals many new Concepts and interesting plot points.

    "Great series!"

    My husband had been after me for years to read The Wheel of Time series. Audible makes it so much easier to do! I've thoroughly enjoyed how Ms. Reading and Mr. Kramer read the stories too. I recommend them to all my friends.

    "what's up with the dress description?"

    it's really a great storyline but the endless description of dresses is exhausting and very unnecessary

    "still can't stop ... "

    once you go thru the door of the wheel of time you have to continue... this should be made into a movie series like the hobbit or start wars. .
