Overview

The Wheel of Time turns, and Robert Jordan gives us the eleventh volume of his extraordinary masterwork of fantasy.

The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai’don, the Last Battle, when Rand al’Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity’s only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One’s prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off. But his attempt to make a truce with the Seanchan is shadowed by treachery that may cost him everything. Whatever the price, though, he must have that truce. And he faces other dangers. There are those among the Forsaken who will go to any length to see him dead—and the Black Ajah is at his side....

Unbeknownst to Rand, Perrin has made his own truce with the Seanchan. It is a deal made with the Dark One, in his eyes, but he will do whatever is needed to rescue his wife, Faile, and destroy the Shaido who captured her. Among the Shaido, Faile works to free herself while hiding a secret that might give her her freedom or cause her destruction. And at a town called Malden, the Two Rivers longbow will be matched against Shaido spears.

Fleeing Ebou Dar through Seanchan-controlled Altara with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, Mat attempts to court the woman to whom he is half-married, knowing that she will complete that ceremony eventually. But Tuon coolly leads him on a merry chase as he learns that even a gift can have deep significance among the Seanchan Blood and what he thinks he knows of women is not enough to save him. For reasons of her own, which she will not reveal until a time of her choosing, she has pledged not to escape, but Mat still sweats whenever there are Seanchan soldiers near. Then he learns that Tuon herself is in deadly danger from those very soldiers. To get her to safety, he must do what he hates worse than work....

In Caemlyn, Elayne fights to gain the Lion Throne while trying to avert what seems a certain civil war should she win the crown....

In the White Tower, Egwene struggles to undermine the sisters loyal to Elaida from within....

The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believes are fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes. Even the White Tower itself is no longer a place of safety. Now Rand, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and Elayne, Nynaeve and Lan, and even Loial, must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience, and the . . . evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of the unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades.”—The New York Times on The Wheel of Time“The Wheel of Time [is] rapidly becoming the definitive American fantasy saga. It is a fantasy tale seldom equaled and still less often surpassed in English.”—Chicago Sun-Times“Jordan has a powerful vision of good and evil—but what strikes me as most pleasurable . . . is all the fascinating people moving through a rich and interesting world.”—Orson Scott Card on The Wheel of Time“The complex philosophy behind The Wheel of Time series is expounded so simply the reader often gives a start of surprise at returning to the real world. Rand’s adventures are not finished and neither is this thinking person’s fantasy series.”—Bruswick Sentinel (Australia)“Jordan has not merely put old wine into new bottles: He has clothed old bones with new flesh.”—Chicago Sun-Times on The Wheel of Time

    A Memory of Light book 12, due out Fall '09

    Yes, book 12, the final installment, is coming out. Robert Jordan had a large portion of the book written when he passed away, and before he died he dictated all the major events to his family. His wife is making this material available to fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson 'Mythborn series', who will complete the novel using Jordan's partial manuscript, story notes, and what he narrated to his family.

    Hope Restored in a Fading Plot

    For those of you who have lost hope in Robert Jordan during the last handful of novels do not lose heart! Knife of Dreams is a brilliant return to the quick and exciting writing style that we all fell in love with during the first few books. Don't get me wrong, there are a few slow parts, but that is to be expected. I like to consider slow parts not really "slow parts", but more of a section in the novel that gives us more depth into this world of the Wheel of Time. Many, many, many plot lines get tied up in this novel. I won't give any spoilers here, but I will say that you will finish this novel and feel a sense of relief. I often found myself gasping one moment and sighing the next in relief. Knife of Dreams is a brilliant novel, and I am glad that the last part of the story put out by Robert Jordan himself was a blockbuster hit. Go buy Knife of Dreams

    It's a wheel of time novel, what more can I say?

    I haven't been disappointed yet with one of these books. Some people would say it gets slow rightaround this part of the series. After reading for the second time, I can only disagree. I recommend this book and all other WoT books, it's by far one of the best serie I've had the pleasure of reading.

    Robert Jordan didn¿t waste any time in making it clear that KNIF

    Robert Jordan didn’t waste any time in making it clear that KNIFE OF DREAMS was going to make up for the wheel-spinning that soured the last few books, especially CROSSROADS OF TWILIGHT. After reading CROSSROADS, I recognized it for what it was – a book designed to set up the climax of multiple plotlines – but that didn’t make it any less frustrating.
    In KNIFE OF DREAMS, we finally start to see the payoff. In the past, I’ve been frustrated by Jordan’s prologues, which have often extended almost 100 pages without any clear point. This time, he did it right – 13 pages of action with an interesting peripheral character. After those 13 pages, I still wasn’t convinced that Jordan would continue his momentum, but he finally wraps up a number of storylines that had been left dangling for the past three to four books. There’s plot advancement, action, some character development – everything that belongs in all fantasy books, to be honest, but had been missing in the recent WHEEL OF TIME installments. sudden shift actually makes it hard to judge this book on its own values. Is it a great book? I don’t think so, but I read it immediately after CROSSROADS OF TWILIGHT, and in that context this book has been a tremendous breath of fresh air for the series. As disappointed as I was at the end of CROSSROADS, I’m that excited to read the next book in this series, and it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to say that.
    Of course, I say this in 2013, when I know there are three more books remaining. At the time KNIFE OF DREAMS was published, it was supposed to be the penultimate chapter. Had I read it upon publication, I likely would have been worried that Jordan would try to wrap everything else up within a single tome, as there still remain a significant number of unresolved plotlines. But knowing what I know, I end this book feeling good about where the series stands (even if it did take way too long to get here) and I’m glad to see that Robert Jordan’s final book was a strong installment. No matter what you say about the middle books in this series (and I’ve been as critical as anyone), Jordan deserved to go out on a high note.

    Awesome story

    I've read all of the series up to date and this was one of my favorites. The way he ties all the different scenarios together is genius.

    Love it or hate it

    If you love Robert Jordan, you can love this book, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. Of all the Wheel of Time, this was my second favorite to number nine and I pitty anyone who only reads half of it becasue there are some great developments near the end. Also, this book focuses more on the characters and less on the specific action, which some people don't like but I love. One important rule of showbusiness that Jordan has always doen well: Always leave them wanting more. I'm desperate to find out what happens and where everyones' stories go. loved this book

    Are you mad as well as heartless? 
    I love this author, I love this series, and I especially love submersing myself in one of these books. 
    I’m not crazy about the cover paintings - is it just me or does every dude look like they’re closely related to every other dude? I have a sneaky suspicion that the male features on all these guys resembles the actual artist. 
    Let’s not get sidetracked! This book is great. It has everything I’ve come to love up to this point, except now, after all this time (it is book 11 after all) this universe is a comfort to me. It feels like home, like I can’t wait to find out what everyone has been up to since I’ve been away. Someday, after I have all of these on my shelf, I’m going to read them all in a row and sigh contentedly. The Wheel of Time is epic fantasy at it’s most pleasurable.

    I prefer the bow and arrow becaus it is more steakthy. Guns are also annoying and can be heavy. You scare half the prey around just trying to get a rabit. Knives are okay to but not practical unless you have a good arm. I like climbing trees and hunting. Deer dont usually look up to see if its safe.

    Ah-May-Zing!

    This is a well crafted end to an excellent epic fantasy series. All the loose ends are taken care off. The characters act true to character. There was no hoaky Deus Ex Machina ending. It all made good clear sense and was satisfying as well. I highly recommend this read.

    WONDERFUL AUTHER-SAD TO SAY GOOD BYE

    I loved all the priors of his work. I agree with all the accolades this book has garnered. Fine detail and vivid view of expression to no fault. Maybe the story has turned to a direction, perhaps, unexpected, but what a fine story indeed. Truly a must read. My only disappointment is to the fact there will be no more.
