Publisher's Summary

In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times best seller 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 Amyrlin, Flaida 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.

Critic Reviews

"Jordan deftly weaves details from previous books into this narrative." (Publishers Weekly)
"Fires of Heaven upholds the very high standards of this major fantasy epic, with battle scenes, comic interludes, and character development all reaching perhaps the highest point in a work that has lacked for none of these." (Booklist)
"Jordan's epic saga of a world threatened by evil incarnate builds steadily as separate strands of a complex plot begin to come together. Fans of this richly detailed and vividly imagined series will not be disappointed." (Library Journal)

The fires of Heaven

Possibly the best so far if your following the series. The "Great Hunt" a close second. No matter how they review you cannot pick up this book in the middle. If you've finished 1 thru 4 you should read "New Spring" before you do this one. Much insight and a real good story. In this one people are gone you would never have expected to be gone. Rand is slowly becoming someone you'd never recoginize from the first book. I just wish audible would not offer 9 out of 10 books in a series and leave out #5 for so long. The average member is not looking that far ahead when he/she starts out.
I've been waiting for this book a long time.

Great book for a long ride

I've enjoyed listening to the series so far. Sometimes the names get confusing (like "domaunie" the land and the girl that can channel but is on a leash) but the readers are great. Yes readerS... 2 of them. A woman for the mostly women parts and a man for the mostly men parts of the book. Its quite cleaver and is very enjoyable after you get used to it.
Sometimes Robert gets a little repetitive with the whole "smoothing a skirt" or other traits of a character but then that?s his style.
The story line is great and somewhat original.
I'd recommend this book to those that like Fantasy Books.

Transported to another world

I have read all the Wheel of Time novels before (more than once), but with the last book on its way, it was time to update myself on the story. This was made so much easier by plugging into audible. My family found it quite annoying as I spent so much time listening, but not to them.



I loved the double narration which divided the story into its male and female halves. And Robert Jordan's story, which I have been following since 1996, is an absolute winner. Love it!

Excellent, a compelling and addictive epic.

This is one of the best fantasy epics ever written, a series right up there with the work of J. R. R. Tolkien but be warned it is not one to be taken up lightly, this series is Huge!



The books have been kept together so one audio book will get you one book and many hours of happy listening.



Sadly Robert Jordan died in 2007 after publishing book 11, but with the help of Jordan’s wife/editor Harriet McDougal, Brandon Sanderson has taken up the torch, using Jordan’s plentiful notes he is finishing off the series brilliantly, with book 14 being the final volume.



The series is voiced by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading throughout and their performances are exemplary, their narration brings the world to life in a way that simply reading it never had for me, they bring a unique voice and feeling to each of the characters that brings them to life and firmly embeds them in your heart.



The only negative I have to put in is that the audiobooks chapter division bears no relation to where the chapters start and end in the books making the chapter search and snooze modes on the app all but useless.



All in all a five star read. An absolute must for any fantasy epic fan.

Great characters and story, however...

Such a great story with so many things happening and I really want to know whats happening next. Though the female characters are nearly always complaining and whining that it's hard to like any of them and found myself getting frustrated because of it. Was read very well as usual and despite my negative points, I'm listening to the next one.
