Product description

The second book in Robert Jordan's internationally bestselling epic fantasy series, THE WHEEL OF TIME, now reissued with a stunning new cover design. The Forsaken are loose, the Horn of Valere has been found and the Dead are rising from their dreamless sleep. The Prophecies are being fulfilled - but Rand al' Thor, the shepherd the Aes Sedai have proclaimed as the Dragon Reborn, desperately seeks to escape his destiny. Rand cannot run forever. With every passing day the Dark One grows in strength and strives to shatter his ancient prison, to break the Wheel, to bring an end to Time and sunder the weave of the Pattern. And the Pattern demands the Dragon. Look out for more information on this title and others at

Editorial reviews

Second in Jordan's overblown cyclic-history fantasy series (Eye of the World, 1989). Young sheepherder-turned-swordsman Rand, one of the few men who can Channel the One Power and survive, rushes off in pursuit of the stolen Horn of Valere - the fabulous Horn, you see, can raise the dead heroes of the ages to fight against the evil, world-threatening Ba'alzamon (he is striving mightily to escape an ancient magical trap). Meanwhile, invading Seanchan women and warriors are enslaving the magical Channeling Aes Sedai women. Moiraine Sedai maintains that Rand is the Dragon Reborn, a fabled warrior who is destined to defeat the bad guys before going mad and killing his friends. Rand hotly denies this, but nevertheless he will again Channel the One Power in an involved magical showdown with the fiery Ba'alzamon. As ponderous, portentous, and overstuffed as before, with everyone going around repeating meaningless aphorisms like "the Wheel wills," and too long by at least hall However, behind all the huffing-puffing heroic travelogue, the elements of a pretty fair yarn are discernible; Jordan's problem, like many of his contemporaries, is simply lack of control.
