Rand is on the run with Min, and in Cairhein, Cadsuane is trying to figure out where he is headed. Rand's destination is, in fact, one she has never considered. Mazrim Taim, leader of the Black Tower, is revealed to be a liar. But what is he up to? Faile, with the Aiel Maidens, Bain and Chiad, and her companions, Queen Alliandre and Morgase, is prisoner of Savanna's sept.Perrin is desperately searching for Faile. With Elyas Machera, Berelain, the Prophet and a very mixed "army" of disparate forces, he is moving through country rife with bandits and roving Seanchan.

The Forsaken are ever more present, and united, and the man called Slayer stalks Tel'aran'rhiod and the wolfdream. In Ebou Dar, the Seanchan princess known as Daughter of the Nine Moons arrives - and Mat, who had been recuperating in the Tarasin Palace, is introduced to her. Will the marriage that has been foretold come about? There are neither beginnings or endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it is a beginning....

    Story
    "Great Installment, Formatting Issues"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Winter's Heart to be better than the print version?

    For the first time with the Wheel of Time, I'm not sure. As other reviewers have stated, there are plenty of audio editing issues that hinder the enjoyment of the book and (if you're like me) if you enjoy switching between the book and the audiobook, it's pretty much impossible here. Instead of putting the break points at the end of each chapter, they're scattered randomly throughout the text, and there's no way to find your place.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Without any spoilers, there are numerous major events that happen that have been foreshadowed since the beginning of the series, and it's great to see it all line up. The climax is tense and earth-shattering. The Wheel keeps turning, but in this book it's turning a bit faster.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Reading and Michael Kramer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Reading and Kramer are in fine form once again as the "voices" of Wheel of Time, and they continue to impress with their nuanced performances.


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

    Once I made it to about page 200, everything kicked into a higher gear, and it was hard to tear myself away. That said, it would take more than a full 24-hour day to listen to it, so I had to be satisfied with spreading it out a little.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible, fix the formatting, and you've got another winner.

    "Good story well read poorly edited"

    I've really enjoyed working through this story. in this book I was annoyed by the editing of the audio. A number of times the story skipped back a few sentences and repeated itself. other than that I enjoyed it a lot and can't wait to finish the series

    "Repeat sections"

    Throughout the audio portion the story would repeat 30 seconds of the story; at least 20 sections. It was like it was highlighting the start of sections.

    Story
    "The saga continues"
    What did you love best about Winter's Heart?

    All of it. I am in love with this story. While there are parts I would change, it is mostly the writing style. People smooth their skirts, still, a LOT.


    Any additional comments?

    The issue I had is not with the story itself, but the audio. Parts of the story jumped back 30 seconds. I thought my players was messed up. And then it would go silent for about 5 seconds in the middle of a speech. While I could figure out the missing word(s), it was really annoying. I have not had that performance with any other book. It was odd.

    "Great book bad recording."

    This was a good book in a great series. Sadly it was poorly recorded. Sounding as though it had been ripped from cassette tapes with sections repeating about every hour or so. Hope that audible will fix the problem.

    "Wonderful story. . . horrible editing."
    Where does Winter's Heart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So far, I have only listened to this series of books. On book 10 now, and the editing on this audiobook is horrendous.


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE take the time to listen to your finished work before allowing it to be released into the wild. I'm embarrassed for you.
