Publisher's Summary

Epic fantasy legend, and author of number-one New York Times best-selling series The Wheel of Time®, Robert Jordan's never-before published novel, Warrior of the Altaii....

Draw near and listen, or else time is at an end. The watering holes of the Plain are drying up, the fearsome fanghorn grow more numerous, and bad omens abound. Wulfgar, a leader of the Altaii people, must contend with twin queens, warlords, prophets, and magic in hopes of protecting his people and securing their future. Elspeth, a visitor from another world, holds the answers, but first Wulfgar must learn to ask the right questions.   

But what if the knowledge that saves the Altaii will also destroy them?

Hum-Drum

I can see why there was no rush to print. It's just not on RJ's level for what he is known for.

The seed of WoT.

Loved it from beginning to end. This is the start of the idea for Wheel of Time. But a different story, in a different time, in a different land, with a different hero.

needs a finish

Brandon Sanderson did such a good job with TWOT maybe he could help finish this series up?

Interesting world

I am glad I listened to this book, but kinda sad that this is most likely all there will ever be for this world. There are aspects that I could tell influenced Robert Jordan's later works, but the world this book presented deserves it's own saga.

A bitter sweet story

What a fantastic story teller, it’s hard to listen to this book knowing that there are no more books coming over the horizon. This is a fantastic stand alone story that reaches into different realities and masterfully mixes technology and magic in a unique and exciting way.

Another fantastic story

It's pace is so fast that I can't believe it's finished already. Loved it, on tenterhooks for the next.

deflating

the narrator does an outstanding job! his voice inflections and flow of the reading is great.
the author is trying too hard though, finishing off Jordans last books I think he is trying to continue filling his shoes. the storyline jumps from one perspective to the next, from one timeline to another, there are details that don't help the story, there are several chapters that have nothing to do with the plot. with a little more polish this could have been a great story.

Classic Jordan

I would say a high school to adult story. I would not read all of it aloud or listen to it aloud for everyone to hear cuz it does have some parts that I don't think are appropriate for all audiences. But I love all the rest of it. and sometimes I forgot which author was writing it I guess I see a lot more now why Robert Jordan pick Brandon Sanderson to continue on his Wheel of Time series. I thought it was really interesting. there are definitely parts that I would never include in a book. but he's not like totally as graphic as some other authors are.

Not your usual Robert Jordan

Having not read any of the Conan novels by Robert Jordan, this novel came as a bit of a surprise to me. The similarities to the Wheel of Time series were very limited, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
