    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - but would recomend starting at the beginning


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Memory of Light?

    When Matt walked onto the battle field trading his clothes for armor then strolling back off the battle field and reclaiming his clothes.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes - Kate Reading is great - she makes every character come to life. She gives remarkable performance in every book I have listened to that she has narrated. I have only heard Michael Kramer in WOT - he and Kate Reading easily made visualizing the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes several times - I wanted to stand up and cheer several times - I laughed and cried.


    Any additional comments?

    It is sad that the series is at an end. I believe that Brandon Sanderson gave great honor to Robert Jordan. I wish there was more story to tell.

    What disappointed you about Sons of Destiny?

    There was no real end to the story. It essentially erased everyting up to the point


    What could Darren Shan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Had a real ending.


    What about Ralph Lister’s performance did you like?

    He was very good - all characters were real.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration and disappointment that there was no kind of wrap up - the last couple of paragraphs essentially undid the entire story.

    "I thought things would change when I found the others. We would stop running. We would fight the Mogadorians. And we would win. But I was wrong. Even though we have come together, we barely escaped from the Mogadorians with our lives. And now we're in hiding, trying to figure out our next move. The six of us are powerful - but we're not yet strong enough to take on their entire army. We haven't discovered the full extent of our Legacies. We haven't learned to work together. And there's still so much that we don't know about the Elders or their plan for us."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - the series has been fun and I am hopeful and excited about the next book.


    What could Pittacus Lore have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The plot was weak and the main characters were not developed any more than in the last book. The plot twist was exciting, but just as the book seemed like it was going to take off it ended.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    John


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Somewhat - it made me mad that it ended leaving an empty feeling and wandering where my time went.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the novellas were on Audible

    After the loss of friends and comrades, after betrayal and battle, master thief Shadow Harold finally enters Hrad Spein the dreaded underground complex where the object of Harold’s quest, the Rainbow Horn, is hidden. With nothing more than his wits, the advice of a goblin shaman, and a stolen map, he must succeed where battalions of soldiers and wizards have failed. Before the master thief are many dangerous obstacles including ghouls, long-dead armies of elves, orcs, and magical traps...

    Would you listen to Shadow Blizzard again? Why?

    No - the story itself grew weak at the end.


    If you’ve listened to books by Alexey Pehov before, how does this one compare?

    I listened to the first 2 books of this trilogy. They were good and the build up to the 3rd book was strong. This book dropped more of the main characters and left the stroy line feeling lonely. It was less dynamic and really left me saying - what a waste!


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    It was very easy to visualize what he was saying - his caracters were distinct and I could tell who was speaking by the consistency of the voice he gave to each character.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish he would rewrite the ending to leave hope. The magical build up with the dancer in the shadows fell flat - I wish he had expanded and created another world.
