Well written, very nice book. However, I liked the character of Birle less than the character of Gwynn. I felt Gwynn had much more purpose to her life than Birle.

This book got me into reading Voigt's other Novels of the Kingdom. I loved it so much. It touched my heart. I will be sad when I finish reading all the others. I will read this book again and again and I will pass it on to others!The others are good, but this one touched me in a special way. It is the best out of all of them.

I have to say that this book touched my heart. I couldn't put it down. I've read it 5 times and still want to read it again. If this was made into a movie I would watch it over and over again. Great characters! Great Story!

When I first read this book I imidiately decided it was my favorite. This may have been because I was twelve and had just discovered romance. But, I've gotten over that and it's still great! Though there's no magic it definately reads like fantasy(which I've always been a sucker for). Yeah, it's romantic, but there's also plenty of adventure and other emotions involved. Recomended to all you girls out there who read to get your heart stolen by book characters and then laugh at yourself for it later :-D

One of the best books of all time! Full of adventure from the moment Birle is introduced. I highly reccomend this great story! Birle, Orien, Yul, and even the corrupt Corbell are believable, realistic charachters.

I thought this book was really good. The beginning was a little boring, but don't put the book down yet!! Birle's enslavement was my favorite part of the book. It is described in such detail through the eyes of a 14 year-old. The ending was AMAZING!!!I would have never guessed it!! Read the book, and I know you will agree with me!! :)

I loved this book! Anyone who likes adventure and romance will too. At first, I thought this book was boring, but after a while the mystery of 'the Lord' and complexity of Birle had me hooked. I felt as if I was there through their amazing journey. I could not put it down; On Fortune's Wheel had me captivated till the very end.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to any of you out there that like historical fiction/adventure. Though I admit that it took several chapters to get me completely immersed in this wonderful story, I couldn¿t have wanted a better book to read. It certainly was a captivating tale with beautiful descriptions and smooth wording that all flowed together beautifully.

Beryl follows the man she falls in love with from her dull life as Innkeeper's daughter to a fearful land where they are torn apart and kept as slaves and only united in war. The ending couldn't have been better!

I loved this book! Sometimes I was reading it before I went to bed I wouldn't be able to put it down and I stay up realy late. It is a very good book for people that like historical fiction.

If this book was boring anytime throughout the book( which it wasn't) the ending would make up for it all by itself! O that ending was such a wonderful ending. It was the best ending I have read in forever!Ok I thought the story was great...her time as a slave the escape. All was Great!

I loved this book, and it soon became my favorite book of all time! I loved the suspense between Birle and Orien, if they were going to end up together or not. Great character development, and plot!

I thought this book was great. Cynthia Voigt is a great writer and can write fantasies and romance and then also girls stuggle through life (the tillerman serries) All her books are great, but i think i like the Kingdoms serries the best! and especially on fortunes wheel! It has romance, adventure, and a girls struggle through life to find herself. After I was done I wish their was more to it! and i had to go out and get the next book in the serries, out of all of the books i think jackaroo and on fortunes wheel are the best but the others are really good too!!!

It's real and you feel like you have lived Birle's life. I have read it about 10 times and never get tired of it. I can not put it down. The begininng is might be slow if you need fast paced books, but once you get into it , it catches your attention.

I thought this book is one of the best I've read since Shakespeare. It was a wonderful story full of suspense I think.I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read.
