Overview

Boxed Set contains Mass Market Paperback editions of The Shadow Rising, The Fires of Heaven, and Lord of Chaos, books four through six of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series.

The Shadow Rising
The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind.

In Tar Valon, Min sees portents of hideous doom. Will the White Tower itself be broken?

In the Two Rivers, the Whitecloaks ride in pursuit of a man with golden eyes, and in pursuit of the Dragon Reborn.

In Cantorin, among the Sea Folk, High Lady Suroth plans the return of the Seanchan armies to the mainland.

In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve.

Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn.....

The Fires of Heaven
In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times bestseller The Shadow Rising, Robert Jordan again plunges us into his extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world:

...Into the forbidden city of Rhuidean, where Rand al'Thor, now the Dragon Reborn, must conceal his present endeavor from all about him, even Egwene and Moiraine.

...Into the Amyrlin's study in the White Tower, where the Amyrlin, Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan, is weaving new plans.

...Into the luxurious hidden chamber where the Forsaken Rahvin is meeting with three of his fellows to ensure their ultimate victory over the Dragon.

...Into the Queen's court in Caemlyn, where Morgase is curiously in thrall to the handsome Lord Gaebril.

For once the dragon walks the land, the fires of heaven fall where they will, until all men's lives are ablaze.

And in Shayol Ghul, the Dark One stirs...

Lord of Chaos
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....

He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.

I love the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time series, at least what I have read of it so far. The content of the books will keep your imagination going wondering what will happen next. The prologues and first chapters are kind of scattered though. It takes a bit to get through the confusion and the rehash of the last book catching the reader up. While it works really well for someone just picking up a random book in the series, it makes the start of the book hard to muddle through as someone who has read the books before. I had issues with the print quality of some of the books; to much glue; the words were crooked for the first few chapters of one of the books. Overall I really enjoyed reading them.

The loss of Robert Jordan is a loss indeed. I began reading his books about 10 years ago - long before the Wheel of Time series became what it is. A friend turned me on to them and would buy each book as they came out so we could read them together. When my husband and I got together he showed me Terry Goodkind and I showed him Robert Jordan. I am proud to have this collection in my permanent library.

This series is one of the absolute best fantasy writing I have read since Tolkien. The intricacy of the plot, the well-developed and very interesting characters, the interaction of the characters within the plot, the entire world culture and politics, race and creeds , etc. Every bit of this series is impeccable in structure and detail. The tragic death of Mr Jordan in 2007 with the last book still to be written has left a huge void in the fantasy world of literature. Happily for the Wheel of Time readers, Brandon Sanderson has been given the immense challenge and honor to write this last volume, using the detailed notes left by Robert Jordan. I cannot recommend this series highly enough for those of you who love the sci-fi-fantasy genre.

This is another great series. I love how the character we meet keep coming back into the stories. Great fantasy series.

Robert Jordan has created a world that other fantasy writers are probably envious of. So detailed is this world, a vision (not the one seen on the cover) is imprinted on the readers mind to the point of being there. I was skeptical at first, I am not a fantasy reader by nature. I have read Lord of the Rings and thought it was a good story. This series is also good. It is well written with few if any typo's (come on editors do your job!!) The characters are strong and easily relatable. Yes the story does drag in some parts but you can always skip it if it's too daunting to read. This is a great series for people who like to read about war, battles, human relationships, fantasy. It has everything from growing up to magic, from fights between good and evil to simply surviving your own thoughts.

The best book series I have ever read. I love it! Robert Jordan has passed away and we are waiting for the final book in the series written by another author. Hope the last book is a great as the rest.
