Another colossal installment in Jordan's already immense saga (most
recently The Shadow Rising, 1991), which many volumes ago proceeded
past the point of intelligibility to outsiders. Series veterans,
however, will recall that Rand al'Thor has declared himself the
Dragon Reborn, and must gather allies and defeat his temporal
enemies before the dread Dark One snaps his bonds and emerges from
imprisonment in Shayol Ghul. As noted before in these pages, Jordan
is not untalented; certainly he displays an active if tortuous
imagination. But long ago he abandoned all attempts to stay in
control of his material. Overwhelming, then - in sheer bulk if
nothing else. (Kirkus Reviews)
In this fifth book of The Wheel of Time, legend fades to myth, and
even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes
again. The Chosen are free and already planning the Great Day of
Return, when the Dark One will walk the Earth again.
