Lord of Chaos: Book Six of 'The Wheel of Time' Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
The Wheel of Time is now an original series on Prime Video, starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!
In Lord of Chaos, the sixth novel in Robert Jordan’s #1 New York Times bestselling epic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time®, Rand al’Thor, the Dragon Reborn, builds his army of Light even as sworn enemies--and supposed allies--move against him.
Now ruling Tear, Andor, and Caemlyn, among other nations, Rand is recruiting all men capable of channeling to be trained as his Asha'man soldiers. The warrior Aiel clans have pledged loyalty to Rand, acknowledging him as their chief of chiefs, even though the Shaido Aiel remain a threat.
Split into two factions, the Aes Sedai of the White Tower and their rebel counterparts both seek to ally themselves with the Dragon Reborn. Rand knows all too well the manipulative nature of the Aes Sedai, no matter which side of their internal war they stand upon. But even he cannot predict just how desperate, cruel, and treacherous they can be.
And in the shadows, the Forsaken and the Dark One are conjuring even more chaos...
Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters. The last six books in series were all instant #1 New York Times bestsellers, and The Eye of the World was named one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read.

I still love most of the main characters though Faile whom I previously loved is now on my nerves with her jealous fits. And Elayne is just the worst; I hope her character gets better as Egwene's does in this book. Still love the boys though. And onward to A Crown of Swords.
Rand holds on to his sanity as he's crammed into a Coffin- like box kept in for days on end until his friends all come together to rescue him!
A great battle ensues with dramatic results that cause great rumors all over the lands!
Another action filled book in this great fantasy series!
It's hard to look at the book as a whole at the moment rather than just gush about that ending, and it is increasingly hard to review these without gushing in general about a bunch of spoiler material.
Lord of Chaos, the sixth installment in the Wheel of Time. I remain heavily immersed in this story and world. Though it may take a little time to really sink back in when I take a multi-book break, getting comfortable again within this world is very rewarding. In fact I noticed with this book, though it was true in some if not all of the ones before it, that the Wheel of Time rewards readers for dedicating solid chunks of time to reading it consecutively; and that reward is a more immersive experience of course. I find that I enjoy Jordan's series more when I sit down and dedicate three or four chapter's time to it; rather than when I read only one, or less even, and set it down.
This book had a notably slow pace in the first half or so. It did. There was scheming, and posturing, planning, thinking, talking. Politics. This was noticeable. However it really didn't take away from my enjoyment of the story. Because while the aforementioned activities may be a bit slower, they are very interesting. Especially when those things center around Rand al'Thor, as his situation at this point in the books is just so enticing to me. He has come a long, long way from the farm boy from the Two Rivers. A long way. His chapters were truly excellent in this one, and his character growth has been the most intense, and the most believable.
I was also pleased to see the girls' plot lines pick up in this installment, after a few relatively major developments. For a long time it felt like Egwene, Nynaeve, and Elayne were treading water, and shuffling their feet. But Jordan definitely has them back on track, and is steering their sections of the story in a way that is fun to read; which wasn't always the case with them, especially when compared to events like those surrounding Rand and Mat, or Perrin. Speaking of Perrin, I was glad of his re-entrance into the story (even if it did take an entire book, and a good chunk of this one as well). Nynaeve's story arc is especially interesting to me, and is building toward big things, I think, and Jordan is fleshing her out well. At the beginning of this story Nynaeve comes across as an unlikable woman full of anger, annoying almost everyone around her. Jordan gives us a bit of understanding as to her motivations, but not a lot. Now though, spending more time with her, we get a deeper understanding of her. Of her anger. Of her drives. I'm enjoying it. Egwene also has her time to shine in this one, and seemingly will have much more time to do so in the future. Elayne has yet to grow on me much; and while I'm being critical, Rand's relationship(s) is clumsily done at best. It really is. And it's just odd. It's not as strange as it could be, given the amount of foreshadowing that went into it, but still it's odd.
One more down, and eight more to go, I'm left feeling like I don't have any idea where the series will go. If that is the punch that the end of the sixth book throws.. Where can it go from here? Only one way to found out.
I like reading about the big world, but sometimes it seems like the characters just move about from place to place just so the author can show off the big world that he created. I imagine every location will have been visited by the time the entire series concludes.
The story picked up in the second half of the book when some of the various storylines started to converge and characters reunited, which was fun.
My biggest frustration continues to be with the characters. Many are written as shallow stereotypes that act immaturely. The women characters are frustrating, and the author does not write the romance sections very well. And there is something weird about women sitting on men's knees... very odd, but it is all over the place.
Overall, this is a very conflicting series. I would not recommend it to others unless they were diehard fans of the genre. The immature characters might be better appreciated by a Young Adult audience. But I am going to continue reading because I want to see where the story goes, and because this is such a well-recognized staple of the genre that I feel obligated to finish it up. And I'm looking forward to where Brandon Sanderson takes over, because I want to read his books next.
