    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    What did you love best about A Memory of Light?

    I loved the ending; the blending of each of the main characters' roles into the story was mastery!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The underlying message that the best of human nature is to strive for something better, to hope and when necessary to sacrifice.


    What about Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s performance did you like?

    They really brought the characters and the story to life, and they blended very well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Several moments moved me, and perhaps most of all, the willingness of the main characters to sacrifice for the greater good, and to overcome.

    A Memory of Light was not only a great story, the entire series was compelling with each book driving me to what to see what was coming next.

    The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. 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.
