"Jordan has come to dominate the world that Tolkien began to reveal." (The New York Times)
"Written with all the skill that has made Jordan one of the grand masters of fantasy." (Publishers Weekly
"Both narrators handle complex roles with feeling and confidence, never losing the excitement and tension of the fast-moving story. The performers breathe emotion into their characters with an earnestness that holds listeners close and leaves them wanting more." (AudioFile)
Good addidition to the wheel of time series. I really enjoyed adding depth to two of the more mysterious characters of the series. Was a little confusing at times with the way some names were pronounced, but I wouldn't say that was a point against it.
Completely new to Robert Jordan and his works. Thouroughly recommend this as an engrossing and well written work. The narrators where excellent and enhanced the whole experience. I'm encouraged now to listen to the whole series....the whole unabridged series.
A very absorbing book. In addition to being a terrific story on it's own it really adds to the series. The narration is also excellent. I couldn't stop listening.
Yes, the narrators are fabulous.
This one is a great back story allows you to see how some of the power players in the story got there.
Right on par with their excellent narrating, they bring the characters to life.
See how it all began!
This is a great book to pop in right after book 6. Not going to spoil why but this is a great filler after that book. It also allows you to take a breather from the series.
I read all the series about two years ago, but never bought the prequel. When Gathering Storm came out, I bought it along with New Spring. I re-read the whole series starting with New Spring this time. For me, it made the whole series flow better than it did the first time I read WOT. I recommend it to all WOT fans and think new fans will enjoy the WOT series more by starting with New Spring.
Listening to these in publishing order, the two before this one were full of audio glitches where they repeated about 20 seconds of audio over again a number of time throughout the book. This one was flawless.
Robert Jordan is on the very top of my list of favorite authors and I can't wait until I see a movie series on the Wheel of Time
I'd suggest reading the first handful of books first but it's not necessary. I read this after finishing the full series over a year ago and it brought back good memories
