This is the 11th book in a very long series, the Wheel of Time series. And look at it, itís like a thousand pages. So I have to admit from minute one that I havenít read it. But I can do research on a book and word on the street is that if you read this series, this is one of the best titles in it.

Hereís what the bookís jacket blurb says:
"The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gaiídon, the Last Battle, when Rand alíThor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanityís only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark Oneís prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seems too entrenched to be fought off. But his attempt to make a truce with the Seanchan is shadowed by treachery that may cost him everything. Whatever the price, though, he must have that truce."

Reviews say this book "explodes with motion" and that is develops a lot of the plot lines in preparation for the 12th book, which is last in the series. The author has said that readers will be sweating by the end of this book - and dreading the wait for the next one. If youíre a Robert Jordan fan, donít miss this one. And if youíre a fantasy saga fan, start with book one and get reading!  (Colorado Blue Spruce Young Adult Book Award Nominees 2007-2008)
