Audio Book Summary

The Wheel of Time is now an original series on Prime Video, starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!

In The Path of Daggers, the eighth novel in Robert Jordan’s #1 New York Times bestselling epic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time®, Rand al'Thor engages in battle wearing the Crown of Swords and wielding Callandor against a force unprepared for the wrath of the Dragon Reborn.

The Seanchan invaders are heading for Illian—and Rand's army of Asha'man soldiers. When they meet in battle, some of the Asha'man are afflicted by madness, unable to control their channeling and unleashing raw power.

The madness extends to Rand himself. He has been hearing the voice of a man believed to have been the previous Dragon Reborn. Besieged by visions and debilitated whenever he uses the One Power, Rand chooses to attack the Seanchan with Callandor. The sword consumes him with a berserker rage, felling ally and enemy alike. And when he regains his senses, Rand finds himself less trusted by those who were once the most loyal.

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.

    I loved the book and give it a 4 star review however the audio book itself is jumpy and skips around a lot and I missed some content. Needs to be re recorded or something.

    Love the series; but I find this to be perhaps the worst book in the series. How much did Jordan’s illness play a part in this degradation in his writing. Anyway, still a great read. I give it 3/5 in relation to Jordan’s other books; measured against any random fiction you might pick up it’s still a 5/5.

    Another wonderful reading by the narrators. A better pair could not have been found. The novel itself, on the other hand, suffers from the same malady as the previous installment: far too many new threads introduced, and nearly no resolution to the current dangling ones, leaving the reader feeling that scant progress had been made in the overall narrative. To top this off, almost all major character arcs are left in a cliffhanger. So to top off the lack of progress, there is no sense of closure. This is a portion of the overall world of WOT where things feel very mired, in my opinion. I look forward to the brisk pace of former installments returning, though I’ve heard I have a while yet to wait.
