Wheel of Time Books Ranked

Robert Jordan's the Wheel of Time series is one of the greatest and most popular fantasy series. This list ranks all 14 novels and the prequel.

1

New Spring

New Spring

The prequel to the series is easily the weakest of the series.

2

Crossroads of Twilight

Crossroads of Twilight

The lengthy series bottoms out with Crossroads of Twilight. Lots of pages, not much progress.

3

Path of Daggers

Path of Daggers

Path of Daggers has its moments, but lacks the battles or dramatic conclusion that Wheel of Time's stronger novels hold.

4

Winter's Heart

Winter's Heart

Cleansing Saidin is a highlight for the entire series. Unfortunately, the rest of the novel pales in comparison.

5

The Dragon Reborn

The Dragon Reborn

A quality novel that certainly has its moments. But you'd think a book entitled the Dragon Reborn would feature a little more of the Dragon Reborn.

6

A Crown of Swords

A Crown of Swords

Rand's long awaited battle with Samael is worth the wait.

7

Knife of Dreams

Knife of Dreams

Jordan's final novel gets the series back on track.

8

Fires of Heaven

Fires of Heaven

A favorite of many, this novel lacks a good balance of characters for my taste.

9

Towers of Midnight

Towers of Midnight

Brandon Sanderson continues his success in carrying on the Wheel of Time after Jordan's passing

10

A Memory of Light

A Memory of Light

The conclusion you've been waiting for delivers.

11

The Eye of the World

The Eye of the World

The book that started it all is one of the best of the series

12

The Shadow Rising

The Shadow Rising

An amazing amount of world, character and plot development is packed into one of the most exciting novels of the series.

13

Lord of Chaos

Lord of Chaos

Rand begins to darken, and you'll like it.

14

The Gathering Storm

The Gathering Storm

Brandon Sanderson takes over for Jordan and delivers one of the best of the series.

15

The Great Hunt

The Great Hunt

A story so strong it could stand on its own, though we're glad it didn't.
