    DescriptionThe fifth book in Robert Jordan's internationally bestselling epic fantasy series, THE WHEEL OF TIME, now reissued with a stunning new cover design. The bonds and wards that hold the Great Lord of the Dark are slowly failing, but still his fragile prison holds. The Forsaken, immortal servants of the shadow, weave their snares and tighten their grip upon the realms of men, sure in the knowledge that their master will soon break free ...Rand al' Thor, the Dragon Reborn, knows that he must strike at the Enemy, but his forces are divided by treachery and by ambition. Even the Aes Sedai, ancient guardians of the Light, are riven by civil war. Betrayed by his allies, pursued by his enemies and beset by the madness that comes to the male wielders of the One Power, Rand rides out to meet the foe.

    Review text
    Another colossal installment in Jordan's already immense saga (most recently The Shadow Rising, 1991), which many volumes ago proceeded past the point of intelligibility to outsiders. Series veterans, however, will recall that Rand al'Thor has declared himself the Dragon Reborn, and must gather allies and defeat his temporal enemies before the dread Dark One snaps his bonds and emerges from imprisonment in Shayol Ghul. As noted before in these pages, Jordan is not untalented; certainly he displays an active if tortuous imagination. But long ago he abandoned all attempts to stay in control of his material. Overwhelming, then - in sheer bulk if nothing else. (Kirkus Reviews)
