In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times bestseller The Fires of Heaven, we plunge again into Robert Jordan's extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world:
On the slopes of Shayol Ghul, the Myrddraal swords are forged, and the sky is not the sky of this world;
In Salidar the White Tower in exile prepares an embassy to Caemlyn, where Rand Al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, holds the throne--and where an unexpected visitor may change the world....
In Emond's Field, Perrin Goldeneyes, Lord of the Two Rivers, feels the pull of "ta'veren" to "ta'veren" and prepares to march....
Morgase of Caemlyn finds a most unexpected, and quite unwelcome, ally....And south lies Illian, where Sammael holds sway....
Mark Jordan is the Asa Griggs Candler Professor in the Department of Religion at Emory University, Atlanta. His academic interests circle around the varieties of moral rhetoric, the history of Christian teachings on sex, and the ambivalent relations of Christianity to medicine. His books include "Ordering Wisdom: The Hierarchy of Philosophical Discourse in Aquinas" (1986), "The Invention of Sodomy in Christian Theology" (1997), and "The Silence of Sodom: Homosexuality in Modern Catholicism" (2000).
"The Wheel of Time [is] rapidly becoming the definitive American fantasy saga....A fantasy tale seldom equalled and still more seldom surpassed in English." --The Chicago Sun-Times
