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....

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

    Robert Jordan books if not better than J.R.R. Tolkien are just as good


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not sure I like the story because originally it was supposed to be the end of the story but now you have another author putting his two cents into the book


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

    These two together and separately are the best voices I ever hear of books I purposely seek them out and I have a library of over 500 audio.


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

    In series of novels there would be just one tagline you would need Ron Howard Steven Spielberg and probably Mel Gibson to collaborate in order to pull this movie off.


    Any additional comments?

    Sanders although a good author does not seem to be able to finish the project before jumping to half a dozen others this makes for following his stories. Very differently

    "Must Buy for fantasy!"
    Where does Towers of Midnight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Difficult to say because you really cant rate the Books seperately , but the series are EPIC!


    What other book might you compare Towers of Midnight to and why?

    Cant really compare it, in relation the the sheer magnitude of the storie i'd say : Sword og truth series and Lord Of The Rings.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    About every scene with Rhand in it , the evolution of his character from book 1 till now is amazing.

    "Brandon Sanderson just rocks the page!!"
    Do you have any additional comments?

    The Wheel of Time is great... but I get the feeling Robert Jordan never would have been able to finish it. But now I know it will end with the next book! Thank you Brandon Sanderson!! WOW!! This book is one of the best in the series... and by the end I know IT IS ON!!!! Bring on A Memory of Light!

    "Great Authors, Great Story"

    I love the series, tried it for the first time in audible format and enjoyed it. Sanderson was a great choice to keep the story going. I miss Jordan and the thought that we wont get more of him really makes me sad, but thank you Brandon Sanderson and the Jordan family for letting the work continue. Great Job!

    "The performance was good but the story not so much"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Towers of Midnight to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is better because I don't have to slog through pages and pages of mind-numbing words.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson again?

    I would listen to their works again only if the works offer some completion to the saga.


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

    The narrators provided a tone and liveliness to the characters I would not have been able to sustain by reading the printed version. I enjoyed their narration of all the books.


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

    The reaction I had was one of aborted anticipation. I purchased every book of the Wheel of Time expecting to read about the results of


    Any additional comments?

    I have no interest in the prequel to the series. If the Book 13 had fulfilled the promise of the last battle, I probably would have shown more interest in the prequel.

    "Yet another great installment in the series."

    This was a VERY well written book. While I have heard disparaging remakes about Brandon Sanderson finishing the series, but this book and The Gathering Storm are very well done. I love how the book wrapped up something that bugged me. I can't wait for the final installment of the series!

    "the best of the best"

    You are reading the best epic fantasy series there is. period. It may take a while to get into it but you will. There are 2600 plus characters but don't get scared teenagers read this every day. You will know these peoples as "friends" and "enemies" and like your own family. Read by the dynamic duo of recitation kate reading and michael kramer... they pull it all together .. I switch genres just to listen to them... It [the series] is really one huge wonderful story broken into 14 too short books that nobody wants to see ended..I can not express how good these books are. I have started 16 different friends reading TWoT and they are all addicted. You think that maybe the books are enchanted some how???
    If fantasy is your genre you have arrived....... paul t.
