Excerpt provided by Syndetics

"The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience, and the . . . evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of the unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades."--The New York Times on The Wheel of Time "The Wheel of Time . . . is a fantasy tale seldom equaled and still less often surpassed in English."--Chicago Sun-Times "Jordan has a powerful vision of good and evil--but what strikes me as most pleasurable . . . is all the fascinating people moving through a rich and interesting world."--Orson Scott Card on The Wheel of Time Excerpted from The Gathering Storm by Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson All rights reserved by the original copyright owners.
