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....

    "DON'T STOP NOW"
    If you could sum up Towers of Midnight in three words, what would they be?

    CLEAR TIME TABLE DEVELOPING. TIEING UP LOOSE ENDS. LESSER CHARACTERS BECOMMING MORE PERSONABLE


    What did you like best about this story?

    THE DETAILS AND DISCRIPTIONS ARE NOT SLACKINBG OFF AT ALL


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

    THEY HAVE BOTH REALLY BECOME THESE CHARACTERS. TOGETHER THEY STRIKE JUST THE RIGHT BALANCE. THERE ARE SO MANY DIVERSE CHARACTERS AND CULTURES IN THIS STORY IT WOULD BE HARD TO DO THEM ALL JUSTICE IF YOU WERE READING IT. AS A 10 YEAR MEMBER I HAVE COME TO UNDERSTAND THAT MORE AND MORE.


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

    TO MUCH GOING ON TO SINGLE ONE MOMENT OUT


    Any additional comments?

    I once read an interview with Brandon Sanderson in which he said he was a life long fan of the late R.J. As an avid fan myself I can assure you he meant it! Only such a person could pick this up and continue the series without so much as a hiccup. If no one told you you wouldn't know it wasn't Robert Jordan. The story of Rand and the adventures of his inner circle have dominated the first books. In this one the details and less mentioned characters are beginning to come together. The circle is getting tighter and soon they will all be together and heading in the same direction. As for narrators I can't imagine anyone but Michael and Kate taking us all to the end. They are clearly into this for their own sakes at this point. I've listened to this series twice assuming the next volume would be out when I got there only to get ticked when it wasn't. Now I'm worried it will be over soon. I guess thats what a good book is? Jeff

    Even though I have read the book, listening to it made the characters feel more real. Good narration.

    I liked how it switched to a girl's voice during Elayne's and Egwene's parts and male voice for other

    no...first one. next is the final book!!


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

    WHEEL OF TIME


    Any additional comments?

    "Narrators to equal the story"

    Far and away my favorite narrators out there. I can't think of a scene where they ruined the ambience or took away but portrayed everything just as I envisioned it. Great story told in a great way by narrators who brought the characters and scenes to life.

    Story
    "Best Yet in the Wheel of Time Series"
    Where does Towers of Midnight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Wheel of Time Series started out a little slow for me -- I liked the storyline and charaters, but the actual writing style seemed a bit lacking. With each successive book it's gotten better and better and with this installment I could barely stop listening. I can't wait for the next and final book to see what happens.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the character development of all the different individuals, and following how each of them see the events that are happening in different ways.


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

    You really get the feeling of the personalities through the voices of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading. I liked hearing a male voice when it is a man's point of view and a female one when it is coming from a woman. Each of them does an excellent job in changing their speaking style to suit the characters they are portraying.

    "beware buying this book"

    The story is coming together amazingly, the pace is way faster than we have been used to, but then we all know that the next book is the last, so the pace has to pick up in order for the story to be complete in only one more book.

    I got more used to the voices of the narrators as this is my second audio book for WOT, having listened to the Gathering Storm. I still find the voices a little stilted for some characters, but I kind of got past that too.

    HOWEVER LISTENER BEWARE
    This is supposed to be an unabridged version and yet they DO NOT READ THE GLOSSARY!
    This is a CRIME.

    Anyone who has been following this series for years has been waiting with great impatience and anticipation to find out who killed Asmodean - it is one of the world's best kept secrets and has been debated for years and years online as we waited for the answer.
    Again anyone following this series is by now well aware that in this book the answer is revealed ... BUT ONLY IN THE GLOSSARY.

    SO I was totally outraged that the glossary was not read out at the end of the book as it was a VITAL part of the book (the glossary in WOT has always been vital for the gems of information it contains and the glossary changes in every book).

    SO BEWARE - if you are a true fan and wanting to READ the answer to the most intriguing question in your mind you will be left high and dry.

    I had to finally succumb and phone my daughter and BEG for her to read the glossary entry to me. It was not the great height of light being shed that it would have been to have the glossary read out to me.

    SHAME ON THE PRODUCERS OF THIS AUDIO BOOK FOR CALLING THIS UNABRIDGED.

    PS no I won't say here who killed him, you will have to find it out by buying the hard copy :)

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

    Yes I would and I have. Wheel of time is hands down the greatest fantasy series ever created. The detail is amazing, the character development should make other authors weep with jealousy, the length of each book makes them that much better.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with Mat. He's a turd in the first few books but really becomes a good character later on in the series as he matures.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I've listened to it many times all in one sitting.

    "Great listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Towers of Midnight the most enjoyable?

    So much action. Everything is coming together for the last battle. Sanderson is a great fit for this series. He picks up with Jordan's epic tale and carries it on. I am nearly finished with this one and am very excited about book 14 coming out next month. I recommend this title.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The transitions are a little choppy but the author has a keen sense of being able to reacquaint the reader very quickly with the details surrounding the characters. So much going on and very action packed.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading – was your favorite?

    I really like Tom and Perin by Kramer.I also like the thick accent Reading brings to the daughter of the nine moons.


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

    i would just keep the title of this book or if all fourteen books were to be made into some series I would call it "The Last Battle" with some subtitle.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the series. It does have some slow parts, but it has been worth it.

    the rescue of Morraine
