5.0 out of 5 stars An Fantasy Epic 19 Mar 2004
By M Evans
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The sixth book in the wheel of time series is an excellent addition to the series but it is also the first book in the series in which the major plot lines fail to reach a suitable end point. Right through to book 10 the major plot lines are now out of sync with the length of a book, which is most unsatifying when you finish a book and have to wait for another to be published. Despite this the story remains very interesting. Events in book 6 begin to expand the epic, telling the story of a number of increasingly important supporting characters. This contributes to the size of this book, diluting some staggering events with slower tempo passages. However, the ending is simply one of the best scenes within the Wheel of time and is what really brings this book together.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairly slow, but with a spectacular payoff. 8 Mar 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The sixth book of The Wheel of Time takes us deep into the second act of this massive story, with the transition to a more political-oriented narrative continuing apace. Lord of Chaos is one of the more divisive books in the series, with fans praising its deeper exploration of ideas and intrigue, whilst critics bemoan the slow pace of the book compared to earlier volumes.

The kingdoms of Cairhien, Mayene and Tear are now sworn to the Dragon Reborn, and a successful raid on Caemlyn, capital of Andor, has seen that city fall to his forces as well. Several of the Forsaken, the most powerful servants of the Dark One, have been slain and Rand's successes look like they will continue unabated. In the south, he is assembling a vast army to send against the Forsaken Sammael in his stronghold of Illian, whilst the Aes Sedai remain divided on how to proceed with him. However, Rand's announcement of an amnesty for men who can channel has shocked the world, for all male channellers of the One Power are doomed to go mad and die, wreaking havoc as they go, and some of his enemies are prepared to move against him before that can be allowed to happen.

The theme of the sixth book in The Wheel of Time is consolidation. Rand's forces have absorbed vast amounts of territory, but before he can resume his campaign he must secure that which he holds already. With scheming against him in Andor and Cairhien underway and an outright rebellion going on in Tear, this proves a difficult task. Rand also has to find a way of dealing with both factions of the Aes Sedai, an undertaking fraught with peril.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book... 18 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've recently gotten the kindle and decide to buy the ebooks for the wheel of time (reading them a 3rd time now), Lords of Chaos is a great book, but the kindle version of it is formatted a little weird, with full lines between paragraphs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Halfway through with a slow start 21 Sep 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
So, book 6, finally halfway through the main series of Wheel of Time, and I'm starting to get a bit tired of the series now, especially as this one had a really slow first half. It's not that nothing was happening, but unusually for the fantasy genre, no one was travelling anywhere.

I'm a little concerned that this series doesn't have anything to help new readers to catch up if they drop in mid-series. Admittedly this can often be grating if you have already read the previous volumes but surely leaving it out is limiting your potential sales to an already captured audience?

In the second half of this book the pace picked up again with a lot of big scenes, but again they didn't seem to be going anywhere. Overall I don't feel that the plot was advanced much in this book. It just seems like it is just a tool to set up some plot points and alter some characters opinions to get them into their places for the rest of the series.

I'm not sure any more whether I'm looking forward to reading the next volume. Hopefully it will be more exciting, but I am half tempted to take a break before continuing.

3.0 out of 5 stars editing 17 Sep 2011
By padma
Format:Mass Market Paperback
while the i find it hard to give up the series after the first 6 books, and will undoubtedly read the rest, i wish they had found a better editor. at least 50% of this book - as with all the others - should have been edited out. we get endlessly repetitive passages about the characters' thoughts and fights - nynaeve must be the worst - as well as endlessly repetitive descriptions of fashion and furniture; and these are just examples. now i just speed read, and wonder if i will read any slower when i reread it. reading Feist for example, i am never bored and he has a series of about 24 or more by now. if the 'wheel of time' series was subdivided into separate lots of 3 books, for example, with something of a conclusion at the end of each part, it would be much more fun to read. between the atrocious editing and the never-ending wait to get to the end of the last book, i wouldn't recommend the series to a new reader. to be honest, i feel a bit as if i had been lured into buying into something that would force me to read 12000 pages until at last there is a conclusion...too bad, because the series could be really good. i'd love to read a re-edited version with half the supporting cast and 65% less words

Twenty-five years ago, more now, the Daughter-Heir of Andor vanished in the night. Her name was Tigraine. She left behind a husband, Taringail, and a son, Galad. I know it is only chance, yet I see Tigraine in your face. It was a shock.” &quote;
