Publication date: November 1, 1998

And you thought L. Ron Hubbard wrote long series. The eighth volume in The Wheel Of Time, sequel to the bestseller A Crown Of Swords, brings the total page count to nearly 5000 in hardcover. Egads. Still, Jordan continues to satisfy his ever-growing audience, and this volume is sure to be no exception. "The Seanchan invasion force is in possession of Ebou Dar. Nynaeve, Elayne, and Aviendha head for Caemlyn and Elayne's rightful throne, but on the way they discover an enemy much worse than the Seanchan. In Illian, Rand vows to throw the Seanchan back as he did once before. But signs of madness appearing among the Asha'man lead him to a fateful - perhaps fatal - decision. In Ghealdan, Perrin faces the intrigues of Whitecloaks, Seanchan invaders, the scattered Shaido Aiel, and the Prophet himself. Perrin's beloved wife, Faile, may pay with her life, and Perrin himself may have to destroy his soul to save her."

[Cover] A Crown of Swords
Tor hard cover
Rand has been rescued from the Tower Aes Sedai and has forced the Salidar sisters to swear fealty to him. The Seanchan are back with a vengeance, and they seem to control all of Tarabon, have a powerful presence in Amadicia and even some in Ebou Dar. Mat is assisting Elayne and Nynaeve with their search for the Bowl of the Winds, a powerful ter'angreal that may be able to restore the world's weather. Perrin is leading a small army to Ghealdon to confront the Prophet. excerpt
[Cover] Lord of Chaos
Tor paperback
Rand has declared an amnesty for all men who can channel. One of the first to join him is Mazrim Taim, a False Dragon from Saldea. Rand charges Taim with instructing the men who come to the Black Tower. Only Taim doesn't appear trustworthy, at least to Lews Therin Telamon, the original Dragon, now a voice in Rand's head. Also, Rand has to contend with Aes Sedai from the White Tower as well as Salidar.
The Fires of Heaven
Having returned from his trip to Rhuidean marked with golden dragons along each arm, Rand al'Thor has been accepted by 6 of the Aiel clans as He Who Comes With the Dawn, but another Aiel also bears the telltale marks. Couladin marked by Asmodean, a Forsaken now forced to serve the Dragon Reborn, is also proclaiming himself He Who Comes With the Dawn and is leading his clan, the Shaido, across the Dragonwall and into Cairhien. Rand needs to gather the loyal clans and follow, hoping to catch him before Cairhien is entirely destroyed.
The Shadow Rising
Tear has fallen to Rand with the aid of a people called the Aiel, whose secret name is People of the Dragon. Whitecloaks and Trollocs have overrun the Two Rivers, and Perrin fights the pull of ta'veren to break free and return to their homeland. The Aiel believe Rand is He Who Comes With the Dawn, with a destiny to unite them - destroy them. Without him, they believe none will survive, but with him, it is prophecied that a few will be saved.
The Dragon Reborn
Rand al'Thor has declared himself the Dragon Reborn, the focus of prophecies. Destined to fight against the Shadow in the Last Battle, people fear that he will cause the Breaking the World once more. To prove himself, he journeys toward the Stone of Tear, a fortress that has never fallen. Inside rests Callandor, the Sword that Cannot be Touched, which is a sa'angreal of great strength and a heralding sign of the Dragon Reborn.
The Great Wheel
The Forsaken are no longer bound in Shayol Ghul, and the hunt has begun for the Horn of Valere, a legendary artifact that will call back dead heroes to fight in the battle against evil. However, the 3 heros have already recovered the Horn, only to lose it to Darkfriends. They must regain the Horn because the dead will fight for whoever sounds it, even Shadowspawn.
