I LOVE this series. The characters are alive and interesting, the action is intense, and it just never ends. Definitely worth reading. That said, I really can't understand why the ebook costs as much as a paperback. There's no ink or paper, no shipping, nothing that would hike the price. Sure, someone has to type it out, but it shouldn't be just as expensive.

I truly did love this book, but there were some parts that got a little long and boring and i seriously think that Robert Jordan has some bad experiences with women. Overall, though, the plot was great and i look forward to reading the next book

I've read books 1 - 6, and I think this is the best one. Book 5 was a bit slower than the first four, and 6 was even more so. I'm taking a break from the series for a while, but I plan on finishing it eventually.

Amazingly well written, the novel is excellent in a way as it weaves the picture of two times, present and past. I am a lover of history novel and this was right up my way. With the twists and turns and anxiety about whats going to happen next, this book had me hooked. I just could not put it down. The book handles a delicate subject matter with great ease. I strongly recommend every mystery lover to get this book. It will keep you up whole night reading it but you will never regret it.

I have read every book in this series at least twice, some more than 4 times. I love this series despite how obnoxious many of the female lead characters get. This book was my favorite by far, mainly due to Perrins side of the story and his return to the two rivers to defend it. I dont think I have ever been more emotionally involved during a battle seen then the final attack on emonds field. It is one of the greatest moments in the whole series. Brandon Sanderson will be completing the final book, GOOD LUCK.

Very good series. If you like Lord of the Rings type story lines, this is a good series for you.

I would tend to agree with other reviewers that this is one of the better books. Each characters story was interesting and well written. At 940 pages it was worth the money. On to the the next book The Fires of Heaven. (only 868 pages)

This is the fourth book in the best series that I have ever read. I'd recommend reading the series in order to fully understand everything that is going on because there is a lot of plot and it all seams to tie in together. The first book is called The Eye of the World, in case you are wondering. The series is great for many reasons. At this time I have read all of the books in the series except the final book, which hasn't come out yet. All of them flow wonderfully and while at some points things may happen in a way that disappoints you, it always turns around to be better than you could have imagined. He writes from each of the many characters with great detail that makes you connect with that character and makes you understand why they are doing what they are doing. One of the best qualities about this series is it's scope. He is telling a story that takes place all across this unique world, and to new worlds, dimensions and realities. Not only that but this is the story of the last battle between good and evil that has taken place since the beginning of time. And while describing this conflict he gives us glimpses into several of the key events that have happened, and needed to happen in order for this stage to be set. In conclusion, this is one of the best books that I have ever read.

At least I wont have to wait on the edge of my seat for the next book!!! (Unlike another series I've give up on. 15 years between books is just wayyy too long Jean Auel.) I Love the complexity of the characters and the storyline and how they keep growing in each book. I also love that I dont have to reread 20 chapters of the same stuff Ive already read in all the previous books in the series!! Cant tell you how annoying that is, usually turns me of a series when they do that. The Shadow Rising was the best and most complex, so far! Hopefully it just keeps getting better and better, like a good series should!

If you read three books before this one you are alredy hooked! The books only get more epic in scope from this point on. So go on and buy this you know you want it!

The storyline keeps developing which is great. Jordan has started answering some questions that I've since book 1, even though he introduces more questions. I find this ok, as long as he's answering other questions as we go along. The storyline is straight forward instead of having plot twists in the middle of the book, which is helpful as I've become tired with the last three books due to "mental whiplash". Great story!

The Robert Jordon series of Wheel of Time is a great read, I highly recommend it to all who love storys of the same realm of Lord of the rings.

Remember the days when the Wheel of Time was printed in small type with small margins and little line spacing? When the timeline was moving at a pace that could be measured in weeks or months instead of hours? Well, if you have a hard time remembering any of those things, pick up The Shadow Rising, one of the last truly great Wheel of Time books. Now, as much fun as I'm having at the series's expense, I did enjoy the rest of the series and think that the most recent book, Knife of Dreams, was the best book in the series for a long time. However, The Shadow Rising is one of the last that really cooks. From the story of Emond's Field and Perrin to Rand and company's journey through the Aiel Waste there is tons of adventure, tons of answers, and tons of new questions. We see the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn for the first time, we see some of the Forsaken in greater detail, we learn the history of the Aiel (a fantastic sequence, perhaps the best moment of the series so far), we meet a whole host of new characters that are interesting, and by the end of the book we've finally taken care of a nagging problem: How is Rand going to get better at yielding saidin? Plot aside, Jordan is really at the top of his form in this novel, weaving enticing story lines without getting too lost in the details. As I said at the beginning, I'm still a fan of the series as a whole and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fantasy fiction, but be warned, the next book is the end of the fast pace and from there they just continue to slow down until Knife of Dreams.

Some people thought Jordan put too much into the whole Aiel customs and history thing. I thought he did a wonderful job. The three girls, Egwene, Nynaeve and Elayne kind of disappointed me. Egwene is becoming a snob, Elayne's already a snob, but Nynaeve's just a little frustrated. I can't believe they overthrew Siuan...And Elaida is now the Amyrlin? This book was a page-turning like the rest of them...

My review today is for The Shadow Rising: Book Four of ‘The Wheel of Time’ by Robert Jordan. I find it hard to review these books. How do you review books that are Fantasy classics? These are books that everybody already knows are good. I find it difficult to express how great these books are. I mean besides Lord of the Rings this has to be considered the best classic Epic Fantasy right? Well I guess I will just take it book by book and see what happens. This is yet another great book in this series. What a wonderful story. Awesome characters. The worldbuilding is just fantastic. Robert Jordan deserves his reputation as the outstanding author he was. This series deserves it’s place near the top of all epic fantasy. The adventures of Rand, Perrin, and Mat are truly epic. Classic fantasy at it’s best. You have reluctant heroes, Dark powers, magic, diverse people, and great battles. I said in my last review that if there was any downside to that last book It was the lack of Rand, Mat, and Perrin and To much Aes Sedai. Thankfully that seemed to be just that book. I guess it is just harder for me to relate to the female characters, I don’t know, but when there is to much Aes Sedai I seem to start tuning out. A good balance in the characters definitely works best for me. The only regret I have with this book, and the series is that I did not read it sooner! I can see now that I am going to be obsessed with this series. I finally know what all the hype was about from all the WoT fans out there. Now I am one of you. Now if I can just read the whole series this year (I am already behind). On to The Fires of Heaven. 4/5 Stars - mightythorjrs
