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. With The Gathering Storm (Book 12) and Towers of Midnight (Book 13) behind him, both of which were number-one New York Times hardcover best sellers, Sanderson now re-creates the vision that Robert Jordan left behind.
Edited by Jordan’s widow, who edited all of Jordan’s books, A Memory of Light will delight, enthrall, and deeply satisfy all of Jordan’s legions of listeners.
The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, May yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

3 kids, 2 moms, 2 dogs, 1 GREAT husband all in one house. Busy life - listening to books is the best escape I have found since I can't seem to find the time to read.
Fulfilling, Memorable, riviting
When Egwaine died
their passion, they did not just read it, they performed it, which makes all the difference in the world when you are listening to a book that is the end of a series you started 15 to 20 years ago.
Yes, however that is unrealistic, I can only go to the grocery store so many time before my family wants to go along.
I started reading this series in my early twenties and started listening to it in my early forties. I am now in my mid forties and very pleased with the ending and the fact the Brandon Sanderson was able to maintain the characters that Robert Jordan had brought to life for me so long ago.
This is a must have if you liked the series...listen to the other books first
None. This is the only book that ends an epic fantasy saga.
If icould have listened in one sitting I would have
No. I ran out of steam for WoT.
Brandon Sanderson for sure, his other work is great.
This series should have ended in 6 or 7. It went on so long, I don't care any more. Seem like a waste of time in retrospect.
Yes. I've read/listened to all of the WOT books numerous times. This one will be no exception.
Rand. His character finally received the focus it's been sorely lacking, allowing the listener to identify and empathize with him again.
Yes. They've both done an exceptional job with the WOT series. I would gladly listen to them again.
spoiler:------------------------------------------ the sacrifice of Egwene
A very enjoyable end to 20 years of waiting.
Michael Kramer and Kate bring to life the world of the Wheel of Time.
The Flame of Tar Valon. Can't tell more without spoilers, but it was a powerful passage in the book and the narrator really makes it memorable.
The way they give a unique voice to the myriad of characters is amazing.
I would love to, but at 41 hours, that's just not possible.
Great series conclusion.
LAN, he is the man
They really bring the story to life.
Yes, I lost much sleep because of this book.
It is over
Rand al'Thor, protagonist, hero makes good in the best way - unexpectedly.
The fight scene where Lan slew Demandred
This epic, which I began reading about a week after The Eye of the World was released to paperback, closes in a very satisfying way, with loose ends tied up, but with plenty of possible spin-off stories available for Brandon Sanderson - if he has the gumption to tackle them. Great Read.
This book was an excellent wrap up to the series, I'm sad it's over but I think Sanderson did a good job. I doubt there is much I can offer in the way of a review that the rest of you haven't already said. So I'm just here to offer my support.
Matt or Noti the rapscallion was my favorite, closely followed by Min:D
I was really impressed by the way this series ended. Many long series end up being over or under written at the end, as though the author wasn't sure how to end it. Happily this was not one. Impressive end to a legendary series.
This series requires patience at times to allow to unfold but it's the best and most intricate series ever written. Most things matter and all 13 books are wrapped up neatly by this one. A true masterpiece.
