Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, strives to bind the nations of the world to his will, to forge the alliances that will fight the advance of the Shadow and to ready the forces of Light for the Last Battle.



But there are other powers that seek to command the war against the Dark One. In the White Tower the Amyrlin Elaida sets a snare to trap the Dragon, whilst the rebel Aes Sedai scheme to bring her down.



And as the realms of men fall into chaos the immortal Forsaken and the servants of the Dark plan their assault on the Dragon Reborn . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairly slow, but with a spectacular payoff. 8 Mar. 2004
By A. Whitehead TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Halfway through with a slow start 21 Sept. 2009
By Jim J-R
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive epic... 4 Mar. 2011
By Harr75
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book in the WoT series to fail to grip the reader from the outset. It's a long one, over 1000 pages, and the first half of the book has the characters not doing a right lot; Rand's thread is occupied largely with the mundane details of running and maintaining his growing empire; Egwene, Elayne and co are sitting tight in Salidar; everyone natters away about what has gone before in a way that would be incredibly tedious had you not read the prior books in the series.

However, despite the initial slowness, I didn't have the objections that some reviewers here have. After spending five volumes getting to know these characters, spending a bit of time with them minus full-on action wasn't a problem. And the second half of 'Lord of Chaos' is every bit as brilliant as the preceding books. Characters separated for a long time are reunited, with great clashes resulting from the changes in each other. Mat, for instance, reunited with Egwene who remembers him as a layabout trouble-maker when now he commands an army, and Egwene... well, I won't give away what she becomes. And Rand's trying it on with the previously untouchable and revered Aes Sedai is great stuff, as is his struggle with staying sane what with a dead man gibbering in his head half the time.

It's the characters that drive this series for me, and I can't think of another series that gives its protagonists fourteen novels to develop across. I love it, despite its flaws- the prudish attitude to sex, the often annoying (perhaps even a tad misogynistic?) depiction of all women as thinking that men are useless lumps to be manipulated but then falling head over heals with one anyway.

The pacing is not an issue for me. Jordan's naivety sometimes is, but on the whole the pure enjoyment of character and world-building is top notch. I for one shall read on....
