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....

    "Literally nothing bad to say about this"

    This series stood well and was my favorite series by itself when Robert Jordan was in charge, but now that Brandon Sanderson took over, it is the best series ever made. I'm convinced that Brandon Sanderson took over the series just so that he could give it more life and excitement

    "LOVE THIS SERIES!"
    What made the experience of listening to Towers of Midnight the most enjoyable?

    There are no better narrators than these two. They become the characters in my head.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'm partial to Perrin's gentle manner, Moraine's intelligence and calm under pressure, and the idea of Loyal and his people.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The comical scenes with Matt.


    Any additional comments?

    When we talk about these books with other readers, we are all intrigued that we have to remind ourselves that we are not discussing a movie. The characters, voices, personalities, scenery, colors...they are all there in our heads, almost as if we've met them. If I could only recommend one book series that would enrich your life, the Wheel of Time would be it. Fantastic morals that examine both sides of the issues, strong female and male characters, believable character reactions, honor, duty, joy, love, faithfulness, comedy. I've listened to this series many times and will again! And, you get a lot of bang for your buck, especially if you use credits! I've often thought how perfect this series would be for someone who is sick and has to be sedentary for a while. The Wheel Of Time series takes the reader on an adventure!

    "Great Continuation with New Author"

    I wasn't sure what to expect after the death of Robert Jordan in the finishing of this series. Brandon Sanderson did a great job continuing, sounding extremely similar to the voice of Jordan. The story and characters are just as well written, and the book kept me engaged.

    Very well done start of the end for the Wheel of Time.

    "Outstanding!"
    Any additional comments?

    Once again I am extremely impressed by Brandon Sanderson's ability to closely match Robert Jordan's writing style in this book, keeping it true to it's original form. The constant action, resolution of plot lines, and build up towards Tarmageddon in this book were truly a pleasure to listen to. I have become very fond of both Michael Kramer and Kate Reading's delivery of the story and cannot wait for the conclusion. Onward!

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

    This is read on par with any of the best of the Wheel of Time series and I found myself as sucked into the story as I had ever been in the previous books, despite the way it was written.


    Any additional comments?

    The story itself was not written as well as it could have been. The timelines between each character are out of sync. There are points where you find out Rand's storyline is weeks ahead of Perryn's. As you start listening, characters that had showed up in Rand's storyline, having left Perryn, appear later in the book in Perryn's storyline because that hasn't "caught up yet". So much so that even after reaching the end of the Perryn segment that I most recently listened to, the timeline still had not caught up to Rand's timeline that had left off several chapters ago.<br/><br/>There are points in the storyline of each where they see eachother in the swirl of colors that tell you where they are in their own timeline well enough, but that bouncing back and forth in time is very jarring to the continuity of the story.

    "Can't beleive it's almost over."

    Wow. What an awesome book this was. After listening to the entire series, this book expertly weaved all the story lines into a tight arrow pointing to the last battle. Just when you thought all the loose threads couldn't be tied together, you could feel the tension as the ending of this wonderful series comes to it's end.

    It's very exciting, and at the same time a bit sorrowful. I'm about to start the last book of The Wheel Of Time, and I'm not sure if I want to laugh or cry. It's been a fun ride, and Brandon Sanderson has done a perfect job getting us to the end.

    Top 2 or 3 books in the series in my opinion.
