About the Author

Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.
Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.
Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.

Robert Jordan has created an incredibly disverse, and well though out world. There are several plots going on the intertwine with each other, and the characters are very complex themselves. There's a reason this guy has eleven books in this saga. Awesome read.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time" is a love-'em-or-hate-'em series -- either you will adore it for its thick machinations and intense detail, or hate it for the glacial pace and often-annoying characters.

By the time the sixth novel arrived, it was becoming clear that if Jordan even possessed the ability to finish the series, he wasn't going to anytime soon. The seventh, eighth and ninth books are compiled in this boxed set, but it seems like very little actually happens in these doorstoppers.

"Crown of Swords," which suffers from this glacial pace, includes Elayne, Aviendha, and Mat searching for a magical bowl that will reverse a deadly heat wave, but Mat's flirtatious nature attracts a ravenous Queen who won't take "no" for an answer. Unfortunately, Rand (who spends most of the book thinking) now believes that he's going bonkers.

Things only go further downhill in "Path of Daggers," both for the characters and the readers. Rand believes that his magic will kill everyone he holds dear, and must also deal with the Seanchan as they attack the Dragon Reborn (that's Rand), Ebou Dar and everybody Rand commands. Meanwhile, his friends are still en route to wherever they are going, and the Bowl of Winds has cooled the heat wave.

The same holding pattern is in place in "Winter's Heart," where Rand is still upset and has nearby been killed. His friends are distracted by a series of kidnappings, crownings and civil wars within the Aes Sedai, and so Rand must tip the balance against the Dark One by himself, even if it takes twenty more books to do so.

Long books or series can sometimes be a blessing; the best and most beloved of the fantasy genre are usually big awkward tomes, or at least several books long.

This particular arc of the series, along with book 10, gets an undeservedly bad rap, in my opinion. At the time of this review I'm part-way through book 10, and generally speaking, minor ups and downs asdie, I've been as happy with one book as the next. There is no general dive in quality, as many like to claim -- in terms of pure writing, these later books are probably superior to the earliest volumes.

The WOT as a series does have its quirks and weaknesses, but to my eye, those weaknesses are fairly consistent throughout the series as a whole, not unique to 7-9. People complain of the slow pace of later books, but the pace of WOT was always slow from the beginning -- I'm actually thankful Jordan didn't start rushing through things just to move the story along. I mean, frankly, the central, main plot is pretty stupid and stereotypical. It's the tremendous level of immersion and detail that make WOT special. It makes the cities, cultures, magic system, and characters all feel believable and real. And the later books deliver on that as well, if not better, than the earliest volumes.

I do think it helps a lot to be able to binge-read the series now that it is complete. It was probably exasperating to wait 1-2 years between volumes. But that ain't a problem now! So settle in, and enjoy all the volumes of the Wheel of Time together. It's a great time and mostly just gets better and better as it goes. This is an epic and truly enjoyable fantasy story, with many very unique attributes, lovingly crafted by a very interesting man.

As for the content of books 7-9 specifically, some of my favorite things (minor spoilers ahead):

- Aviendha POV chapters!

I started reading this series when it first came out in the 1990's. I followed every twist and turn in the plots of the books and loved everything about them.
When Robert Jordan died I figured no one would ever be able to finish the series, but I was wrong. Brandon Sanderson has done a totally awesome job with the latest in the series, His style and Jordans mesh seamlessly. Kudos to JR's wife for choosing Brandon to finish the series!

I've already read this series. I bought these for my mom who loves to read. She is loving the series so far so I'm sure I will buy the rest of the series. My mom lives in a different state so it's extremely convenient to buy these and have them shipped to her without having to go to the bookstore or the post office.

Love this series. I am now on book 7 and there are 18 total. I think this 3-pack is a great way to go instead of buying all separate. Once you get started on this series, you can't put it down. Can wait until I'm on book 18!
