About the Author

Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. 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.

Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.

Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.

This was a great book. In the previous books, Jordan touched lightly on the relationship between Lan and Nynaeve. Finally, they have gotten married. I was also curious as to how things would fall out between Min and Rand and also Elayne and Avendia. This book reaches deeper into topics it had touched only lightly before. I have heard many complain that the time between the books is too long and I do agree, but I do ask one question. Can a man right a 900 page book, get it revised over and over again and get it all published in less than a year like everyone wants? Just a small question. :-)

Book 7 of the Wheel of Time does not disappoint fans. It holds you in its grasp throughout the whole book. It makes you want to keep reading to find out what happens between Rand and Sammael...A GREAT READ!!!!!, looking forward to the next one!

As good as any other title of the series. To those of you who think nothing happened in this book, I say, re-read it! True, none of the major plots were wrapped up or even brought any closer to conclusion, but there were some interesting developments and some new questions were posed. But, is the plot all this series is about? No! It's also about the characters and the setting. There was some genuine fun to be had in this book as Mat was made to squirm for Queen Tylin and it was sad (and kind of frightening) to see the changes Rand went through in this book. One truly begins to wonder if the madness has seized the Dragon Reborn. If one thing detracted from this book, it had, what I believe to be, a rather abrupt ending. Still, I look forward to reading 'The Path of Daggers,' and seeing what new things happen in the lives of our heroes and what new things may happen in the plot.

'Even though the books seem quite long they are for the most part fast reading and have me following the story very closely practically living it'

The series started out incredible until now. This book is the most over worded piece of garbage i've read in a long time. Its obvious that jordan had to fulfill a 12 book series so he had to stick as many words as possible to attain that. This book could have been awesome if he had cut it down to 6-700 pages. Thats how overworded this story is. And the next one is reading the same so far. I'm rather upset at this point and am questioning finishing the series. If i read nynaeve pull her braid one more time the only One Power is going to be my hand pushing the lever to flush this thing down the John.

the plot thickens as mutiple protagonists fight for their lives just to stay afloat.

This book provides more winding, interlinking plots. The characters become more real to the reader and this coupled with the 'big ending' make this another fabulous book in the Wheel Of Time series leaving you begging for the next one. Finishing this series will leave a void in your life you cannot replace...ever

THE BEST YET! IT HOLDS YOU IN SUSPENSE WHILE YOU WAIT FOR THE FIGHT BETWEEN RAND AND SAMMAEL. THOUGH IT ALSO SLOWS UP HERE, WE HAVE TO REALIZE IT IS AN EPIC, AND THAT IT IS GOING TO TAKE TIME TO REACH THE LAST BATTLE.

Obviously a must read for WoT fans. A Crown of Swords deepens the rift forming amongst the Chosen (aka Forsaken), specifically Sammael's and Moghedien's ability (or lack thereof) to follow orders and spread Chaos throughout Randland. While the ending is a little blurry and somewhat anti-climactic, readers may be surprised at who turns out to lend the Dragon Reborn a helping hand.

While the beginning is an extansion of the last books ending, the rest of the book goes by real fast. Lots of things happen in this book, Rand finally goes on the offenseive. Finally we get to see more of Min, a character that is a lot more interesting then some of the other main characters.

The Wheel of Time series is absolutely excellent. A Crown of Swords has to be the peak of the series. It opens you up to all of the characters and you can actually see them as people, not characters from a book. Very well written.

I usually don't like to read long books, but this author is awesome. If you like fantasy books, read these.

This book is an excellent sequel to Book six of the Wheel of Time series, one of the most addictive series I've ever read. While most fantasy is invariably compared to Tolkien, Jordan's style is much different, from his more realistic political situations to the greater role of women in the series. I highly recommend reading this and the other books in the Wheel of Time series.

Still fighting the madness that is slowly trying to manifest within him, along with enemies in every direction, Rand continues to grow stronger and gain more support in this volume of the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. A Crown of Swords is the seventh book in the series and is definitely better than the last two in my opinion. The characters all continue to evolve as the story continues toward an ending I can’t wait to see. I love this series and hate to see it end, but at the same time I want to know what is going to happen.
