Publisher's Summary

The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One’s prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck. To prevail, he must seek answers in Tel’aran’rhiod and find a way - at long last - to master the wolf within him or lose himself to it forever.

Meanwhile, Matrim Cauthon prepares for the most difficult challenge of his life. The creatures beyond the stone gateways - the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn - have confused him, taunted him, and left him hanged, his memory stuffed with bits and pieces of other men’s lives. He had hoped that his last confrontation with them would be the end of it, but the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills. The time is coming when he will again have to dance with the Snakes and the Foxes, playing a game that cannot be won. The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost.

This penultimate novel of Robert Jordan’s number-one New York Times best-selling series - the second of three based on materials he left behind when he died in 2007 - brings dramatic and compelling developments to many threads in the Pattern. The end draws near. Dovie’andi se tovya sagain. It’s time to toss the dice....

    "A single review for the whole story."

    This has been a wonderful series. Some parts slowed and some was to much discription of things someone reading the series didn't need to hear over and over again. I general it was great. The narrators, being my first, I think did a fantastic job. Now I must wait for the last book. I'm listening to the preview and it will make it the more harder to wait.

    Story
    "Fantastic!"
    Would you listen to Towers of Midnight again? Why?

    Yes. Mainly because it's a little while until the final book comes out, and I will likley need a refresher


    What did you like best about this story?

    After 12 books, it's really nice to see some plot lines get finalized; and they are all awesomely done.


    What does Michael Kramer and Kate Reading bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Consistency. They are both great in their own right, but when used in combination, it really helps to set mood/expectation for what is to come.


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

    I cried a few times; laughed a lot!


    Any additional comments?

    None needed :)

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

    Brandon Sanderson is a good author however his style differs from Robert Jordan in such a way that for the series it doesn't fit just right but I still love it.

    Story
    "Great story, poor voice acting"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Towers of Midnight to be better than the print version?

    No, I always prefer a print version. I only listen to audio books because of a 1.5 hour each way commute.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Towers of Midnight?

    Perrin's battle with the trollocs was pretty good. The reading gave it gravitas, and the writing was very descriptive.


    Did Michael Kramer and Kate Reading do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Michael Kramer needs to give up on trying to do female voices. He comes across as really bad and slightly creepy. When he would start trying to do Faile's voice it would really jar me and break me out of the scene. Kate Reading does great women characters. Her male voices are less great, but not as bad as Michael trying to do women. Also, Kate's British accent she gave some characters was pretty awful and would come and go, sometimes from scene to scene, sometimes in a single sentence.


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

    The death of a great supporting character was handled well and the fallout for the main character was handled very well. I don't want to give any spoilers, but it was one of my favorite points in the book. It doesn't come as a surprise, there is plenty of foreshadowing and build-up, but it seemed to fit the story and the timing was well done.


    Any additional comments?

    This would have been a much better book with better voice actors or if those actors had made better choices with their voice selection.

    Story
    "Sanderson did a great job."

    It was a very sad and great loss to lose Jordan, however Sanderson did a great job of keeping the feel and narration, just like Jordan's.

    I am looking forward to listening to some of Sanderson's books.

    I'm going to give the same review to all of the books in the series.

    I really enjoy the story, but there were to many side stories and Jordan (Sanderson even copied this) is very Tolkienesk in that they both can be overly verbose at times.

    I have listen to this series 3 times.

    That being said I can not wait for the last book.

    Story
    "The end is nigh"

    and the waiting is killing me :(

    Brandon Sanderson is doing an incredible job. There is a notable difference between his style and that of Robert Jordan, but it can't be helped and at times it's actually a strength. He puts in plenty of reminders to jog our memories of past important events that may have become a bit lost in the sheer volume of words. He takes us back to the character's roots and reminds us of how far they've come. He is somewhat prone to writing heroic and over-emotive speeches, though, and Michael Kramer proclaims them with great conviction.

    I adore how he writes Nynaeve. She is clearly one of his favourites.

    The prophecy at the end sent shivers down my spine. I am so very worried about Perrin right now. It's insane how invested I've become in these characters.

    I imagine those gathered for the Final Battle feel a bit like I do just now. The end is so near, but time seems to be standing still.

    Story
    "Pieces coming together"
    Where does Towers of Midnight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    What a great book to bring all the pieces of the story closer to an end.


    What does Michael Kramer and Kate Reading bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    All of the characters are consistently voiced. Certainly each is written to support their own speech patterns etc, but Michael and Kate really provide the consistency that makes it all work so well.


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

    There are a few very special moments, but sharing them would be filled with spoilers.

    I haven't read the print version, but I have become a huge fan of the audio versions. Michael and Kate are fantastic narrators and they have become an intrigal part to the series for me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really rather not answer this question, I don't want to spoil anything for anyone

    "Excellent story and great audio performances"

    If you enjoyed the earlier Wheel of Time books, you will not be disappointed by this chapter in the story. Sanderson did not disappoint.
