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.

Yes, I have invested some much time into this series, I want to be sure I understand how it was closed out.
I read this entire series
It was an intriguing look into anther world.
Many story lines left handing, Padan Thain felt like a thrown in after thought. How Lanfear was handled was superb. The entire Seanchan issue was left unreslved, leaving Mogidian as the one Forsaken with the ability to come back if the Seanchen release their Domani
Perrin and Mat, Egwayne, Tom , Lan etc.. they are all good infact.
I both laughed and cried.
Epic ending for an epic series. Awsome work by Brandon pulling this of so very well.
Near the top.
My favorite character is a hard question. The book has an excellent assortment to choose from. I guess if I had to choose one it would be Rand. His journey from the boy he was in the first book to who he is in the last is far beyond that of the other characters who though also go through amazing growth.
I have loved their narrating. They are my preferred narrators for fantasy novels. Their voices and inflections and such just bring the characters to life.
Sad that the story is over.
Yes, I will listen to it again because each time I notice things I didn't before & it keeps my interest even the second or third time around.
I have read the Wheel of Time series twice and have really enjoyed it. This was a great end to the story. I love the performance of Kate Reading and Michael Kramer. They are great as the voices of these characters. I can't imagine them any other way.
I read too fast sometimes so listening to Kramer and Redding allows me to see the story.
Great as always.
Glad the story concluded but sad the story ended.
To Be Continued
Matt, reminds me of the person I wish I could be.
The realism an Epic needs. They're perfect for this and The Way of Kings.
No but they made me weep like a man.
Yes I would. I've listened to the series at least 4 times beginning to end waiting for AMOL. Every time I've picked up something I missed or was reminded of some twist that I had forgotten.
I have listened to books by both of them. They are very talented narrators.
I'd stay up way too late to keep listening. It was really hard to step away whether it was to go to work or go to bed, this book was great.
The pissing contest between Matt and Rand, who's the bigger hero.
The emotion. The dialect. Over 13 books, the characters never had a different voice, it was amazing.
An epic story about love, loss and power.
This was not the perfect ending, but it was an ending. It had to be done.
One of the best sorry to have the story end
Humanizing of the characters giving them dimension
Yes but I had to sleep some time. Have listened to it 3 times since I purchased it
