Publisher's Summary

In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times best seller The Fires of Heaven, we plunge again into Robert Jordan's extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world.As the Wheel turns, the winds of fate roil across the land. Rand al 'Thor struggles to unite the nations for the Last Battle when the Dark One will break free into the world to spring the snares laid by the immortal Forsaken for unwary humankind. The White Tower in Tar Valon, under the Amyrlin Elaida, has decided that Rand must be controlled immediately. Drought and summer heat linger into winter and Nineveh al'Meara and Elayne, the Daughter-Heir of Andor, begin a desperate search for the fabled ter'angreal that may enable them to restore normal weather conditions.

Finally here!

This is it! Lord of Chaos is finally out in Unabridged format!

Jordan/WoT literati argue about their favorite scene or the best part of the series. Ever since this book was published the battle at the wells has ranked near the top. This book and the two before it are Jordan at his best, his most innovative and balanced. I highly recommend the series (make sure you start with book one).

As for the audiobook... Michael Kramer and Kate Reading have been doing the narration for all 8 unabridged editions so far and they do a very good job of it. The only part of the narrations that bugs me in the slightest is Kramer's portrayal of Gawyn. How come Gawyn has a Brit accent and Elayne and the Emond's Fielders have normal accents? They're all from Andor... Anyway, very good production quality; engrossing story; able to fit on an iPod. What more could you ask for?

Good job

Kate Reading & Micheal Kramer do a fantastic job of narating this series. Anyone interested in High Fantasy should start this series at book 1 and not stop until they are done. My only hope is that they will get the next book done in unabridged formate before I finish this one.

I say MogaDEEN you say MogIDion

I love the wheel of time series - love something BIG I can really lose myself in - and I love the readers too BUT!

(It's a big BUT that needs it's own paragraph!). WHy oh Why oh Why can Kate and Michael not AGREE on how they will pronounce people's names and then STICK to it?!!! I can just about live with Kate's "Mwahrain" as opposed to Michael's "Mohrain" but what I don't like is when Kate spends 5 books saying "MogaDEEN" and then suddenly switches to "MogIDION" now in book 6 making me start and feel irritated every time. I can just imagine Kate going "Mogadeen, Mogidion, whatever!" but really Kate, when you've been given such a big contract you really could pay more attention to detail. Not only could, I would go so far as to say, must. Let's hope my words sink in.

Dumai's Wells

Wow! This is the first real battle since Tear and The People of The Dragon. And a brilliant finish to the book. Egwene Al'Vere comes into her own, and Matt Cauthon's character really starts to shine. While some of the books I think are better than this one, it is a key pivotal moment in the saga, and not to be missed. And as with all of the Wheel of Time books, not to be missed!! I have read this book twice, and listened to it 4 times now, while progressing through the series towards book 14. Each time, the battle at Dumai's Wells at the end of the book just makes me shiver with excitement as The Dragon comes into his own, and The Black Tower shows what it can do.

not bad at all

the writing is a bit too discriptive in places but overall I did enjoy it very much.
