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.

Beautiful story and performance

the perfect ending to an epic series. The characters were well represented and whole, the story compelling. even battle scenes (which I get bored with eaaily) were engaging and we'll done.

Audible sucks

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

no one cannot hear it/read it

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

YES!@!!!!@!

Any additional comments?

I will never use audible again. after ~50 dollars I struggle to get the thing on my phone to hear. I WILL NEVER USE AUDIBLE AND TELL EVERYONE OF MY POOR- NO HORRIBLE- EXPERIENCE! Sign our contract, download my software, waste your bandwidth and get nothing, the Audible policy! make it consumer freindly or you are not worth anything,

It was a Beginning

What made the experience of listening to A Memory of Light the most enjoyable?

Throughout this book series you have been held up in suspense and confusion. you have been brought to tears and to smile from ear to ear. Now sadly it has ended but to quote an amazing man's literature "there are no beginnings or endings to the turning of the wheel of time.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how it gave enough closure with each character that you feel happy for them for once truly in this depressing series. But it also makes it believable Matt is still the Prince of the Ravens, Perrin is the Wolf king, etc. they are still living even after the series ends.

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

I loved all of the characters in this whole bloody book Michael Kramer and Kate Reading if I were to ever meet you I wouldn't want to stop shaking your hands.

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

The ending of Tarmon Gaidon makes me so happy with the horn sounder and who all is where they are made me so happy.

Epic Disaster

The last battle was disjointed. Events became so removed from their original beginnings that climaxes all seemed like add-ins rather than high points of the story. I could go on for days about how crushed I am over how terrible this ending book is but I won't. Michael & Kate do their standard, substandard performance. What happened Brandon? So much promise in the first two books you wrote and then this? If Jordan wrote it this way, you should have stepped in and fixed it. Michael & Kate I can forgive. They were never, ever good narrators. A legacy over a decade in the making, ruined. Why?

Great ending

This was a good ending to the story. Lots of action, finishing up the open ends of the story lines. The only thing I did not like was the voices of the characters were more pronounced. They should have kept them the same.

The 14 books of The Wheel of Time - a new friend

To me an incredibly entertaining epic that will linger with me for a while, to be sure. I have deep admiration for minds that can conceive of such and put it to paper. Add to that masterful narration and it can hardly get any better!
