Look out for the companion book: The World of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time
This 14th and final book in Jordan's celebrated Wheel of Time fantasy series was completed after Jordan's death by Sanderson, working from the author's notes and outline. Narrators Kate Reading and Michael Kramer, who narrated previous installments of the series, return for this conclusion, and their deep understanding of these characters and this fictional world shines through in every word. Kramer has a deep voice that pulls the reader in, while Reading's tones are more thoughtful and reflective. Both give memorable, nuanced performances that keep readers on the edge of their seats during exciting action scenes and put them in the characters' minds as thoughts are revealed. The rich history of this fictional world and its enormous cast of characters is likely too complicated for newcomers, who really need to start with the first book. But fans of the series will be well rewarded for their patience in awaiting this final installment. A Tor hardcover.
