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....
The Wheel of Time Turns
The story of the Wheel of Time has been reviewed countless times, and I don't think that I can do any better than saying it is one of the greatest epics of all time. As far as the continuation within this book, Brandon Sanderson has outdone himself. His second book has brought him more in tune with the characters and it is clearly noticeable in comparison with The Gathering Storm. The pacing in this volume is fantastic and the story is progressing nicely towards conclusion. As for the Audiobook, Michael Kramer and Kate Redding are spectacular. I am a huge fan of Michael Kramer and love how he is now used in other Brandon Sanderson works as well. Both narrators use a multitude of voices and really bring the pages of the book to life. In the end, well there are no beginnings or endings to the wheel of time, this book is fantastic, the audio version is well done, if a bit pricey, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!
Great series. missing content
Love the series. Love the convenience of the audio presentation.
Unfortunately it seems like chapter 24 is missing some content,
Will there be an updated download with the missing content restored?
If you don't know, the author of the first 11 books died very unfortunately. In his absence, I think Sanderson is very capable. This is still Mr. Jordan's plot. Nothing has changed. Sanderson has just written it the way Mr. Jordan would have wanted it. Sanderson's writing is more focused on the action than the description, which is in my opinion sometimes a good thing. Jordan sometimes played down the action in favor of talking and vivid imagery. This book has the most action of any except perhaps the first. Everything falls into place for the last book. Great read, great narrators.
