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 #1 "New York Times" bestselling 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 more

Review quote

"Kate Reading and Michael Kramer are well known to listeners of the Wheel of Time series as narrators who have built up a great store of characters. They also have impressive flexibility in delivering the novels' many explanatory passages, details of intrigue, and dramatic events...The Wheel of Time has been turning for a long time, and the last battle has begun." - "Audiofile ""This is fantasy at its best and if you have been following the series from the beginning then you can't miss out by not buying this audiobook.. Mention must be made of the talents of the narrators, Michael Kramer and Kate Reading. Both are highly experienced in their field and maek the book come to life in a very special and individual way. Now, this was no easy task. As we know the number of characters equals the number of visible stars in the night sky and to do them justice you've got to have great skills of narration. I think the narrators excelled at their task." - """Sanderson continues to do a splendid and seamless job of concluding Robert Jordan's lauded life work... leaving readers/listeners more keen than ever for the long awaited conclusion, A Memory of Light." - """Michael Kraemer and Kate Reading have narrated all of the previous books, and continue to give peerless performances." - "Publishers Weekly", Starred Review"The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience, and the . . . evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of the unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades, just as the experience of the First World War and its aftermath gave its imprint to J. R. R. Tolkien's work."--"The New York Times" on The Wheel of Time(R)show more
