Publisher's Summary

Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages.

When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork. With The Gathering Storm (Book 12) and Towers of Midnight (Book 13) behind him, both of which were number-one New York Times hardcover best sellers, Sanderson now re-creates the vision that Robert Jordan left behind.

Edited by Jordan’s widow, who edited all of Jordan’s books, A Memory of Light will delight, enthrall, and deeply satisfy all of Jordan’s legions of listeners.

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, May yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

    "Unbelievable conclusion to a masterful story"

    I have read every wheel of time books and it is simply a masterpiece thriller that you have to experience at least once before you die. Such detail and suspense.

    "Brandon Sanderson is my new favorite author"

    The wheel of time series began with a fantastic author; the story line was a little disorganized to begin with, but Robert Jordan knew how to drive the plot forward even if you didn't completely comprehend the full scope of things from the get go. Brandon Sanderson knew the order of remaining plot points, but even better he knew how to organize them. The characters that you fell in love with over the course of the series retain their humanity and are relatable up to the very end. Robert Jordan was an incredible voice behind the series; Brandon Sanderson had big shoes to fill. He not only filled them, but he improved upon the foundation of the series and made you fall back in love with the characters you knew so well before. I'm so thankful that he had his hand in the memory of light trilogy. I had a great respect for Robert Jordan, but now I have an even greater respect for Sanderson. Some artists can simply finish a piece of art that another person started, others can take over the art work and create something worth more. To say that Sanderson is talented at this; at knowing and delving into the human spirit is such a vast understatement. He reforged the series to a piece of artwork beyond any expectation I could have imagined possible. Bravo! I plan to read every book he has released.

    "Loved it"

    Over the past 2 years i have listened to the whole WOT series on my commute too and from work. Today, I finished A Memory of Light. To be honest I loved it. It provides a satisfying ending,moves at a blistering pace, and is genuinely enthralling. Sanderson really hit the mark. All that said, I am a bit torn. Mainly because over the last few years the characters have become like old friends. I am genuinely sad to know that I will not be listening to their adventures anymore.

    RIP RJ. You brought an incredible story to the world.

    "Great ending to an epic story"

    Brandon Sanderson at his best. Brandon provided a seamless transition from the deceased Robert Jordan writing in a style that was difficult to distinguish from Jordan himself. There were some improbable moments as the last battle moved to its climax but overall was very well done. It was an added bonus to have the same readers, Michael Kramer and Kate Reading, perform the narration of all 14 books in this series.

    This final chapter (actually the final three books) in this very long epic was well crafted as Rand al'Thor prepared for the battle at Tarmon Gai'don against the forces of the Shadow. Rand, Matt, and Perrin's paths finally converge in the final book in a way that was very satisfying.

    Having finally completed the entire series, it is interesting to go back and reflect on some of the more memorable events that shaped the lives of our main characters. I especially enjoyed Matt's character, which added just the right amount of levity to keep the story from becoming overwhelming.

    If you are reading this review to determine if it is worth diving into this epic series, I would say that it is definitely worth it. Be patient. The story really meanders at times, and there are too many minor characters that are very difficult to keep track of, but the story resolves most of the loose ends satisfactorily.

    "Probably the best ending ever made."

    A Memory of Light is the best book I have ever read. The way it takes the enormous interpersonal complexities amalgamated throughout the previous 13 books and wraps it up while playing with expectations and yet losing nothing is baffling. I cannot sing praises loud enough in regards to this piece of fiction. All that I could say wouldn't be enough and in the end all I can do is smile. It is truely a masterpiece. For those not yet familiar to the Wheel of Time I say this: read it and find out.

    I LOVE audio books. I drive 20 hours per week on average and use that time to listen to books. I love long books, and multi book series.

    "Book 14....WOW"
    Where does A Memory of Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was an awesome finale to a long complex fantasy series. Each book was 40-ish hours long. This book is a worthy end to a great series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Memory of Light?

    The ending was unexpected and perfect....


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

    The performers did a great job using tone, inflection, and accent to help develop the characters. They also met the challenge of growing with the characters as they aged throughout the 14 book series.


    Any additional comments?

    The early books in the series feel a bit like "young reader" material, however they do mature as the series goes on, adults don't give up because this is a wonderful, complex, moving story.
