Reviews

" Jordan has come to dominate the world Tolkien began to reveal....The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience....The evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades." -- "The New York Times"
" Adventure and mystery and dark things that move in the night-- a combination of Robin Hood and Stephen King that is hard to resist. Furthermore, Jordan makes the reader put down the book regretting the wait for the next title in
the series." -- "Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"
" The Wheel of Time is a fantasy tale seldom equaled and still less often surpassed in English." -- "Chicago Sun-Times"
"Read by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer, who breathe life into this epic tale." --Patriot News
