Now a major TV series on Prime Video
The thirteenth novel in the Wheel of Time series - one of the most influential and popular fantasy epics ever published.
The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One's prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unravelling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to spill out of the Blight.
Perrin Aybara is haunted by spectres from his past. To prevail, he must find a way to master the wolf within him or lose himself to it for ever.
Meanwhile, Matrim Cauthon prepares for the most difficult challenge of his life. The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost.
The end draws near. It's time to roll the dice.

Jordan's epic is coming to its long awaited conclusion in the next book, so this installment (Book 13) exquisitely ratchets up the suspense. The last battle is coming, and Rand must garner the armies of nations, unite disparate allies, and as the Dragon Reborn, prepare to face the Dark One in combat. Fans will find the preparations of the multitude of characters exciting and satisfying. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading have narrated all of the previous books, and continue to give peerless performances. Both boast a wide range of vocals and accents, and perform all characters convincingly. Their readings and characterizations are complementary and consistent in manner and style so that the sprawling series is kept coherent. A Tor hardcover.
I've been reading the Wheel of Time series for years, and to be blunt I think that these last two books, with the new author, have given the series a nice shot in the arm. The 'Towers of Midnight' was a great, action packed addition to the total work, and I can't wait till I find out how it ends!
Then I'll be a little misty eyed that it's all over... ;)
Perrin doesn't annoy me as much as he does in this book- why? o.O he's so...fickle -.- oh, review :p i don't want it to end so i'm taking my time...i've been reading the series for so many years and to think second to last book- what will i do with myself??? Sanderson was a wonderful and perfect choice bringing such character and vivacity to the story yet not overwhelming the voice of Jordan...rather...guiding it to us
Great book. Crappy Price!
Great book but I am not sure the $39.99 price tag is appropriate given the kindle version is $12.99.
Apple really need to get with the program. The iBook app is good, but I can't say it's better than the kindle app. If apple ban kindle and kobo, then really they have lost the plot!
