But long ago he abandoned all attempts to stay in control of his material. Overwhelming, then--in sheer bulk if nothing else.

Synopsis

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...

Jordan deftly weaves details from previous books into this narrative and includes a glossary so that new readers can pick up the saga at this point.

Reviewed by Angela Carter on Aug 25 2011

Four Forsaken swept in just a few short chapters, Moiraine demonstrating a rare but heart-wrenching sacrifice to help Rand win his fight, and lots of new plot twists...that leave readers a bit stunned and more than a bit eager to read on.

Reviewed by Michael Strauss on Feb 16 2010

Each individual plotline feels slightly stale and it is difficult to understand the progression of the plotlines at times...Jordan seems to have lost some of his talent at creating powerful and believable character motivations.
