For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of...

Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

And it is stolen.

It is a duty and a destiny that requires Rand to uncover and master magical capabilities he never imagined he possessed.

Praise for The Great Hunt

“Jordan has come to dominate the world Tolkien began to reveal....The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience....The evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades.” —The New York Times

“Adventure and mystery and dark things that move in the night—a combination of Robin Hood and Stephen King that is hard to resist. Furthermore, Jordan makes the reader put down the book regretting the wait for the next title in the series.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“The Wheel of Time is a fantasy tale seldom equaled and still less often surpassed in English.” —Chicago Sun-Times

“Read by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer, who breathe life into this epic tale.” —Patriot News
