Publisher's Summary

Millions of Robert Jordan fans will rejoice at the release of the ninth book in the phenomenally best-selling series The Wheel of Time. The sequel to the number-one New York Times best seller The Path of Daggers, which swept the nation like a firestorm, Winter's Heart continues a remarkable tale that is mesmerizing an entire generation of readers.

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
    "On and ON and ON --will it never end?"

    MY personal opinion---you can skip both books 9 and 10 and miss very little. I'm seriously thinking of looking for an abridged version because I kept falling asleep during these 2 books (and had really weird dreams too) and just didn't go back and play it again,Sam.

    I got so confused that I wrote a review for this book but posted it to Book 10 and it didn't really make any difference.

    A few high points aren't worth the never ending taverns, battles and trite writing.

    By this time, one would thing the main characters had developed-theres been the space to do it, but I feel I know more about -for example-Thom than Rand- and Avendah (sorry I don't have the books so I don't know the spellings) than Elayne.

    My daughter just finished the last book and says the wait is worth the pain-but she read/listened to the books over 15 years and not in one fell swoop,like I am.

    "Horrible editing and missing a couple of chapters"

    The editing was horribly done for this book. The last few seconds of each chapter are repeated and there is an important part of the book missing. Chapter 31 ends and the story pick back up at the end of chapter 34 and I had no idea what was going on. Having not fully read all of the physical books yet, I was confused because all of a sudden we have Cadsuane trying to negotiate Rand's release and I have no idea how he was captured. This really needs to be fixed because I had to stop the audio there and go on the internet to figure out what was going on otherwise nothing made sense. The quality makes this book not worth the price and it is the first one I have listened to in the series that has been this bad. Save your credit and your money and buy the book instead for this title.

    "Can't Audible Fix This?"

    Story: Great.
    Narrators: Great.

    Editing: Flat Sucks.

    Can they fix this? If not, why not?

    You would think Audible would have a way to go in and edit out all the repeats and out-of-sequence sections before someone burns through a credit or shells out money for this disaster.

    "Editing is pathetic. Left out chapters and duplicates instead."

    No one bothered to QC this recording before making it available for download. There are several chapters missing and instead the last 10 (approx) chapters are duplicated. Nice job Audible.

    "MISSING CHAPTERS 32,33,34"

    MISSING CHAPTERS! Missing chapter 32, 33 and all, but the last 2-1/2 pages, of chapter 34. The story is great, of course, the narrators are FANTASTIC, but the editing IS HORRIBLE. Repeat sentences, paragraphs and some unexpected long long pauses not keeping with the story and did I mention its MISSING WHOLE CHAPTERS? How does that even happen??

    "Good story continuance"

    The recording was a little off with repeating lines as it transitioned from one segment to the other. Plus, the last chapter climax was a little jerrky with the multiple narrators jumping back and forth so much that I had to go back and listen to it twice, so I gave it a four. Otherwise, it was a good continuation of the story.

    "Poor Editing"

    The story is very slow, but not awful. The ending is truly one of the best scenes in the series. However, this audiobook skips several chapters in Far Madding that are pretty essential. I had to go look up a wiki article just to understand what was happening. It also repeats several phrases unnecessarily. The narrators were good, but the audiobook was edited seemingly without care.

    "Broken... Nice story, poor recording"

    Numerous recording errors. Often, the text would skip before repeating itself, like an old record. The book has 32 chapters, yet more than 200 are catalogued in the recording.

    Nice story otherwise. Flawless narrators performance.

    "What the hell happened?"

    The book is fine. The recording skips from the end of Chapter 31 to somewhere in the middle of Chapter 34. It repeats whole sections frequently. I don't understand how this passed any kind of quality control.
