Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Oddly, the final book was a slog for me to finish."
    What did you love best about A Memory of Light?

    That it was even written, allowing a completion to this branch of Robert Jordan's work.


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

    They are the voices of this story to me. I have listened to them both in other stories and find them just as skillful and individual.


    Any additional comments?

    As much as I have enjoyed this series (both written and 'audible') it was a slog for me to get through this last book. I realise Sanderson was trying to tie up all the loose ends - but at times it seemed like this story was never going to finish, because yet something else got thrown into the storyline.
    Overall, I certainly recommend this series!

    "Sanderson finished the tale that Jordon couldn't."
    What did you love best about A Memory of Light?

    Only Brandon Sanderson could have finished this grand fantasy epic so well. In fact, I think he outdid Jordan in many ways. There are no remaining cliffhangers, but...

    The Wheel of Time Turns, and Ages Come and Pass...


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The story too complex to be told in film?


    Any additional comments?

    Michael Kramer and Kate Redding do a great job of narration, as they have throughout this series. Their narration brings the characters to life, and is actually what made me fall in love with audiobooks many years ago. (So many. we listened on cassette tape! Remember those?)

    "Great end to a wonderful series!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Memory of Light to be better than the print version?

    I found the audio version of this title to be very entertaining and spellbinding. As someone who has followed the series thru all 14 stories I would say that the audio version is as close to a movie or theatrical production as you will get while still maintaining the story. I am also one of those who believe that Brandon Sanderson has added a touch of life and humor that was never there before under the actual author Robert Jordan. Good read, awesome audio.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The culmination of decades of story telling, very enjoyable.


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

    They did an awesome job of changing back and forth in both characters and the presentation of both battles and despair, between love and hate, between light and dark, even tho the lines between all of these are blurred at times.

    "A perfect conclusion for the series!"

    Kudos to Brandon Sanderson for finishing this series, which might have left us all wondering "what happened?" after the death of Robert Jordan. I could complain that there were liberties taken with the Universe by Sanderson, but ultimately I enjoyed the book greatly and am thrilled at the ending.

    "Fantastic Ending to a great series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audio book to any reader of the Wheel of Time Saga


    What other book might you compare A Memory of Light to and why?

    Any of the other bookks in WOT, except Crosroads of twilight and Winters Heart, my to least favorite of the series. As for the rest of the series, no way to choose a favorite, just epic.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Lan sheathing the sword to defeat one of the Forsaken, death is lighter than a feather


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

    The final conflict between The Amrylin and the Shadow's forces. Moving, epic, leaves you in disbelief, wondering if the Horn of Valere will have a new hero.


    Any additional comments?

    I expected to be disapointed in this ending, after almost 15 years of reading and rereading while waiting for the conclusion. I could not fathom the ending satisfying me completely. I was so wrong. This ties everything neatly, while still leaving room for all readers to imagine and wonder. I could not have asked for a better conclusion. Brandon Sanderson has pulled off the impossible, and aptly sewn together Robert Jordan's vision to create a worthy conclusion to this saga. Well F-ing done.

    "Think twice if you've READ the previous 13 Books!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would totally recommend this book, this series. However, I had to buy the book and read it because it was very disconcerting to hear voices that sounded NOTHING like my mind had assumed all through the first 13 books. I suppose if you listened to the entire series this would not be an issue!


    What three words best describe Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s voice?

    way too different from what my imagination had created.


    Could you see A Memory of Light being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It would be hard.....

    "Finale to the Best Series I've Read"

    I have reviewed book 1 in this series & a few of the books along the way so I'll try not to be too repetitive.

    The series as a whole is the best I have ever read. It is a fantasy based novel that follows the path of the Dragon reborn & his companions as they fight evil & the influences of the Dark One. Each book in the series is extremely detailed & descriptive & book 14, A Memory of Light, is no exception. This book unfolds the Last Battle & determines whether the Light or the Dark prevails. As with books 11 & 12 written by Brandon Sanderson this installment starts slowly with lots of general detail that reintroduces the characters. I found this interesting but very slow to develop. It takes a third of the book to get the multiple plots moving. The battle scenes are very good & in-depth & yes they are long - after all this is the Last Battle. Good fights with lots of intrigue which I find interesting.

    Many loose ties are resolved for some characters but not all questions are answered. It would be virtually impossible to cover everything in this last book. The last book is good & wraps up most of the main issues. I am saddened that this is the end of the story for the characters I have come to know over 23 years (book 1 was published in 1990). That said I will wait a while & listen to all the books back to back. Who knows - I may find something I don't remember from the first 5 or 6 times I've read or listened to ths series.

    "A Fitting End to the series that started it all"

    This was the first series I started listening to on audio some ten years ago. The writing of Robert Jordan and the narration by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading sealed my fate for loving audio books. This was also a shared thing between my two sons and myself as we listened together sometimes and compared notes other times. Good memories!

    While Brandon Sanderson is one of my favorite writers, his collaboration with Robert Jordan brought out the best in his writing and Mr. Jordan's ideas. Brandon Sanderson used the skill of a surgeon and the care of a curator in bringing these last books to life and I will be eternally grateful to him for that.

    Thank you Robert Jordan for everything you did for the fantasy genre and for the imagination of nerds like me!
