Description

The Wheel of Time is a PBS Great American Read Selection! Now in development for TV! 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 Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, looms. And mankind is not ready. The final volume of the Wheel of Time, A Memory of Light, was partially written by Robert Jordan before his untimely passing in 2007. Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn books, and now Stormlight Archive, among others, was chosen by Jordan's editor-his wife, Harriet McDougal-to complete the final volume, later expanded to three books. In this epic novel, Robert Jordan's international bestselling series begins its dramatic conclusion. Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward-wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders-his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself. Egwene al'Vere, the Amyrlin Seat of the rebel aes Sedai, is a captive of the White Tower and subject to the whims of their tyrannical leader. As days tick toward the Seanchan attack she knows is imminent, Egwene works to hold together the disparate factions of aes Sedai while providing leadership in the face of increasing uncertainty and despair. Her fight will prove the mettle of the aes Sedai, and her conflict will decide the future of the White Tower-and possibly the world itself.

Professional reviews

"The narration of this work is truly miraculous. Kate Reading and Michael Kramer breathe emotion and veracity into a varied cast of characters, deftly teasing out their complex ambitions and motivations. When author Robert Jordan died before finishing his Wheel of Time series, fans despaired. Happily, he left behind much of the conclusion in passages and notes, so Brandon Sanderson was hired to finish the series. In the first of the three final books, the mood has turned decidedly dark as the Last Battle looms and hero Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to control the madness growing within him. Both narrators bring intensity and passion to this much-loved series, giving nuanced performances even to minor characters. D.G. 2010 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
