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....

    "Satisfying A Great Installment in a Great Series"

    This was our family's most anticipated book of the year. We're huge fans of this series and it was immensely satisfying to finally get the book. I was hoping they would take care of the Black Tower but they didn't. I was hoping that they would get things settled with the Seanchan, but they didn't...... BUT I LOVED the parts with Lan, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and the changes in Rand. I cried, laughed and worried. Of course, it is the middle of this 3-book ending and it does NOT end in a good spot. If you can't stand cliff hangers.... you probably arent' reading this series. If it is too much stress you may want to wait until next year when the final book comes out. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have listened to it twice now. I just can't believe he is planning to wrap it up in one more book! If you love fantasy adventure and can stand complexity and a ton of characters, this book series will take you to a wonderful place. But start at the beginning (The Eye of the World) and persevere. The endings and character development are worth it. I can hardly wait for the next book!!

    "WoT returns to the spirit of books 1-5 at last!"

    Sanderson has revitalized the series and is finally bringing this massively overwritten epic to a satisfying conclusion. Where Jordan lost his way in book 6, wandering endlessly in a loop of women's wear daily like descriptions of meaningless details, Sanderson has brought purpose and order and best of all progress to the characters and story that Robert Jordan created. The Towers of Midnight continue the momentum of Gathering Storm and lead us to the doorstep of the last battle. Long suffering readers rejoice, you will soon have the closure you have been seeking for so long!

    "What a great prelude to the final book"

    Just finished the book. It was so great. That may be the fastest I have ever listened to an almost 40 hour story. Sanderson does such a good job of tying the myriad of story lines together that Jordan introduced. The battle scene with Rand vs the trollocs was great. I was really excited that Sanderson discussed each of the main characters throughout the story. The stories with Mat and Perrin are by far the best ones. I was also glad there wasn't much discussion on the Seanchans. I prefer the battle between the Dark One, foresaken and the good guys. I can't wait for the final book next year.

    "Excellent!"

    Another excellent addition to the Wheel of time series!!!
    Can't wait for the next book to come out!
    I never thought he/they would be able to tie up all the loose ends but it's looking good for now.

    "great book"

    This is the first time I have used an audiobook. It's great! I can "read" & crochet at the same time. The Wheel of Time series is one of my favorites.

    "Can't wait"

    I can't wait for the last book. This one had everything I could expect from a Wheel of Time book. Sanderson understands what Jordan wanted from the last books and it's getting to one of the best endings of a series.

    "Great almost ending"

    I love the detail. I enjoy the narrator. The stage is set in so many ways. I hope that the next book is not a blood bath, but triumph.

    "Well done!!"

    Great book! I couldn't stop listening to it and am thoroughly excited for the last one.

    An extra note, one big kudos for Sanderson. As much as I enjoyed Robert Jordan's story line and the world he created (I've reread the series almost every time there was a new release), the one major component that I've always found frustrating to read has been his character interactions and internal dialogues regarding those interactions. Many of these traits, interactions, lack of communication and internal drama always seemed very contrived and completely unrealistic to a degree that was painful for me to read. It's like a world filled with people that have the emotional maturity of my fiver year old. I mean, who really thinks like that? Sometimes funny, but mostly it just dragged out the story to no point. Now, I thoroughly love the way Sanderson includes all those personalities to stay within the story line, but it doesn't seem so contrived. It doesn't distract. It seems like all these amazing 20 - 300 year old characters finally made it through puberty and can hold a conversation. Thank you Sanderson for making the awesome even better. To reference a scene in the story... My wife will also send me a quick little message not to stay out too late drinking with the guys... that is a realistic interaction because she's concerned about my welfare and I lose track of time. Not because I'm a 36 year old wool headed idiot boy that can't even blow my nose without a woman telling me how and when to do it.

    "Yawn"

    Brandon has managed to make Matt boring, Make the golden crane guy boring, make bubbles of evil boring. The last book was a masterpiece, this one just seems like he had pages to fill. I think most of the people that gave five stars are doing so because they feel they have to, to honor Jordans work. I loved all the WOT books, its just this one is missing the filler.
