The Wheel of Time is now an original series on Prime Video, starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!
With Robert Jordan’s untimely passing in 2007, Brandon Sanderson, the New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn novels and the Stormlight Archive, was chosen by Jordan’s editor—his wife, Harriet McDougal—to complete the final volume in The Wheel of Time®, later expanded to three books.
In Towers of Midnight, the thirteenth novel in Jordan’s #1 New York Times bestselling epic fantasy series, the Last Battle has truly begun. 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. And trials by fire await those fighting against the darkness that encroaches from their enemies—and within themselves…
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.
Mat Cauthon must once again face the creatures beyond the stone gateways, the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn. He had hoped that his last confrontation with them would be the end of it, but the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills. The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost.
Rand al’Thor, the Dragon Reborn, arrives at the White Tower with a startling revelation for Egwene al’Vere. Fearful for his sanity, Egwene summons the rulers of the Borderlands to stand against him—knowing the fate of the world rests in their hands.
Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters. The last six books in series were all instant #1 New York Times bestsellers, and The Eye of the World was named one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read.

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.
Hats of to Sanderson!! Heroic at carrying the torch beyond expectations. Jordan would be proud. Life imitates the story as fate brings Sanderson's fingers to weave new life into the series in a way that you could almost believe Jordan planned it that way.( from a perspective he did) The book solidifies the characters to another level, and becomes a strong stepping stone in the never-ending dream that spirals up like a Ogier staircase, almost at the top. One more step to go...
Towers of Midnight
In this book you sacrifice depth of characters Jordan provided, but gain a plot that moves at more than Jordan's glacial speed. The last two books are worth reading! They allow Wheel of Time lovers to return to "Randland" in a very satisfying way. I look forward to the finale!
I've reread the series once again to place the book in proper context. I was a bit concerned that a new author just wouldn't be able to pull it off seamlessly. Sanderson actually did an amazing job of recombining the many threads of this story in a mature and credible way. This is now my favorite WOT book to date.
Credit to Jordan for complete plot development.
Credit to Sanderson for amazingly aggregating the many threads in an effective and immensely satisfying read!!!
