The Wheel of Time ® is a PBS Great American Read Selection! Now in development for TV!
Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.
The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.
Elayne, Aviendha, and Mat come ever closer to the bowl ter'angreal that may reverse the world's endless heat wave and restore natural weather. Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel--Sea Folk, Windfinders, Wise Ones, and some surprising others. And above all, Rand faces the dread Forsaken Sammael, in the shadows of Shadar Logoth, where the blood-hungry mist, Mashadar, waits for prey.

About the Author
Praise For A Crown of Swords: Book Seven of 'The Wheel of Time'…
Praise for Robert Jordan
“His writing is distinguished as literature by the richness of its fabric, with all the charm and naïveté of the Brothers Grimm and the social/moral commentary of Huxley’s Brave New World. With his well fleshed out characters, dark imagery, comic relief, vivid landscapes, and a fascinating sense of timelessness, Jordan has created a complex literature with a language and reality all of its own.” – Brewster Milton Robertson, Myrtle Beach Sun-News

“Jordan’s multi-volume epic [is] a feast for fantasy aficionados.” – Library Journal
“For those who like to keep themselves in a fantasy world, it’s hard to beat the complex, detailed world created here.” – Locus

“In the long-awaited sequel to the bestselling Lord of Chaos, Jordan returns to the [same] complex, detailed fantasy world… Highly recommended…” – Library Journal
“In the seventh volume of Jordan’s preeminent high fantasy saga, intrigue and counter-intrigue continue to roil… This latest installment of a major fantasy epic definitely will not disappoint its fans.” -- Booklist
