Description

In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times best seller The Shadow Rising, Robert Jordan again plunges us into his extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world:

...Into the forbidden city of Rhuidean, where Rand al'Thor, now the Dragon Reborn, must conceal his present endeavor from all about him, even Egwene and Moiraine.

...Into the Amyrlin's study in the White Tower, where Amyrlin, Flaida do Avriny a 'Roihan, is weaving new plans.

...Into the luxurious hidden chamber where the Forsaken Rahvin is meeting with three of his fellows to ensure their ultimate victory over the Dragon.

...Into the Queen's court in Caemlyn, where Morgase is curiously in thrall to the handsome Lord Gaebril.

For once the Dragon walks the land, the fires of Heaven fall where they will, until all men's lives are ablaze. And in Shayol Ghul, the Dark One stirs.

Critiques

"Jordan deftly weaves details from previous books into this narrative." (Publishers Weekly)
"Fires of Heaven upholds the very high standards of this major fantasy epic, with battle scenes, comic interludes, and character development all reaching perhaps the highest point in a work that has lacked for none of these." (Booklist)
"Jordan's epic saga of a world threatened by evil incarnate builds steadily as separate strands of a complex plot begin to come together. Fans of this richly detailed and vividly imagined series will not be disappointed." (Library Journal)

Great book for a long ride

I've enjoyed listening to the series so far. Sometimes the names get confusing (like "domaunie" the land and the girl that can channel but is on a leash) but the readers are great. Yes readerS... 2 of them. A woman for the mostly women parts and a man for the mostly men parts of the book. Its quite cleaver and is very enjoyable after you get used to it.
Sometimes Robert gets a little repetitive with the whole "smoothing a skirt" or other traits of a character but then that?s his style.
The story line is great and somewhat original.
I'd recommend this book to those that like Fantasy Books.

The fires of Heaven

Possibly the best so far if your following the series. The "Great Hunt" a close second. No matter how they review you cannot pick up this book in the middle. If you've finished 1 thru 4 you should read "New Spring" before you do this one. Much insight and a real good story. In this one people are gone you would never have expected to be gone. Rand is slowly becoming someone you'd never recoginize from the first book. I just wish audible would not offer 9 out of 10 books in a series and leave out #5 for so long. The average member is not looking that far ahead when he/she starts out.
I've been waiting for this book a long time.

It's about time!

Man...these books are great! Michael and Kate need to hurry up and read FASTER! :) I have to agree that the unabridged versions are SOOOOOOOOOOOO much better than the abridged versions...don't even waste your time with them.

Great Series

I've really been enjoying this series, and was overjoyed to see that Audible got the unabridged version of the Fires of Heaven. I enjoyed this book immensely, and look forward to Audible getting the UNABRIDGED versions of the next 3 books (hint hint).

The Fires From Heaven

Just seemed to drag on and on and on. Almost fell asleep several time until part 5, then everything happened at once.

This was a great installment

Lots of intrigue and character development (though I could have predicted what happened in the last hour with three of the characters). A few really great cliffhangers for the next book. I miss Perrin and Fayile from the last book - on to book 6 to see if they show up!

Men vs. Women

I have liked all of Jordan's book including this 5th book. The only complaint I have is constant reference that Men think Women are stupid and Women think Men are stupid. I think it is safe to say the there are times when we all share the this viewpoint but he uses it ALL the time in this 5th book. I also had some trouble following all the various path the many characters take. On the whole I have enjoyed Jordan's books and I will buy all the rest if they show up. It so involved a story you can't stop at Book 5. He makes the characters so real you can't help but want to know what happens.

Another great book in the Wheel of Times serie

What made the experience of listening to The Fires of Heaven the most enjoyable?

After getting used to listen to two different narrators I have become to appreciate it.

What did you like best about this story?

I can't really say what I think is best about the story since I appreciate everything in it. Robert Jordan was in my view a master when it came to writing fantasy. You can see the lands and characters before your eyes when reading/listening to his books.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer ?

I'm sure I will listen to more books narrated by them, atleast in this serie.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would like to listen at it in one sitting but it's not really possible because of the lenght of it.

Any additional comments?

The Wheel of Times is a masterpiece that I would recommend to anyone that fancies fatasy. This is one of the best series out there in my opinion

Too Good to Put Down

What made the experience of listening to The Fires of Heaven the most enjoyable?

The Narration is great on this book and I don't think the narrators could have done a better job. The characters and the plot great from beginning to end. If you like Fiction and Fantasy you will love it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fires of Heaven?

There were so many memorable moments I laughed at or worried about or just got totally involved in. But the strongest moment for the main character of the book "Rand" was to me the last chapter where he finally showed he was the Leader he was meant to be and able to make the tough decisions. I think he really became a man at that moment to me.

What does Kate Reading and Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Oh, they bring so much enjoyment and character to the book. I get to the point I look for hearing their voice. I listened to a short book waiting for my credit to purchase the next book and listening to a completely different style of narrator made me really appreciate Kate & Michael much more. They are perfect with the narration as well as the voices they come up with for different characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

You bet! I did not but if I could have I would have!

Any additional comments?

I promised myself I would only listen to this series of books while I exercised and it was not long before I first caught myself working out more just to keep listening to the book, and then I finally threw that promise away because I enjoyed the book so much. I think you will see what I mean.

Can't get enough of "The Wheel of Time"

I'm actually a late bloomer when it comes to Robert Jordan's world. I didn't hear about this series until a few years ago when I picked up Eye of the World. From that moment on, no other book could compare to this series of books. If you're like me, then you don't need me to tell you how critical this book is to the series. Hell, any of the books are critical because they contain more of that sweet sweet nectar we call Robert Jordan's words (or if you are listening to the audiobook - and you should - the sweet sweet nectar of Kate Reading and Mike Kramer's voices!)

In all seriousness though, this is a great book. A lot of people complain that not a lot happens which is true, but not in the way many people think. People are traveling and the wheel is being turned and events are being set in motion that will be unraveled over the course of the next couple books.

If you are a fan, this is a must read, if you aren't and thought the previous book wasn't very good then this one won't do much to change your mind. As for myself, on to the next Wheel of Time novel!

...I already had it downloaded and the audio book loaded up on my device for a seamless jump from one to another!

Macht wirklich Spaß zu hören!

Mir gefällt die Art der beiden Sprecher sehr, sehr gut. Man fühlt sich teilweise so tief in die Geschichte hinein versetzt, kann die Gefühle der Charaktere so gut nachempfinden, dass man beinahe glaubt, direkt dabei zu sein.

Von dem Spannungsaufbau finde ich den vierten Teil der "The Wheel of Time" Serie allerdings ein wenig zäh. Es geht recht langsam voran, allerdings enttäuscht die Geschichte im gesamten keineswegs. Man sollte jedoch wirklich genau zuhören, da viele Einzelheiten und Kleinigkeiten aus den voran gegangenen Teilen wiederkehren und doch wichtig zu sein scheinen. Ich freue mich schon darauf, den fünften Teil zu hören!
