Audio Book Summary

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 and listeners 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.

The Seanchan invasion force is in possession of Ebou Dar. Nynaeve, Elayne, and Aviendha head for Caemlyn and Elayne's rightful throne, but on the way they discover an enemy much worse than the Seanchan.

In Illian, Rand vows to throw the Seanchan back as he did once before. But signs of madness are appearing among the Asha'man.

In Ghealdan, Perrin faces the intrigues of Whitecloaks, Seanchan invaders, the scattered Shaido Aiel, and the Prophet himself. Perrin's beloved wife, Faile, may pay with her life, and Perrin himself may have to destroy his soul to save her.

Meanwhile the rebel Aes Sedai under their young Amyrlin, Egwene al'Vere, face an army that intends to keep them away from the White Tower. But Egwene is determined to unseat the usurper Elaida and reunite the Aes Sedai. She does not yet understand the price that others--and she herself--will pay.

TV series update: 'Sony will produce along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce. Judkins previously worked on shows such as ABC’s “Agents of SHIELD,” the Netflix series “Hemlock Grove,” and the NBC series “Chuck.” Red Eagle partners Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will executive produce along with Radar’s Ted Field and Mike Weber. Darren Lemke will also executive produce, with Jordan’s widow Harriet McDougal serving as consulting producer.' —Variety

    The book itself was fantastic. Sadly the recording had some mangle parts. I tried jumping back thinking it was my phone but Everytime I got to that part it shipped around. The jumbled issue was consistent and could not be corrected. Again, the book is great, and the narrators are so on. It's the recording that needs corrected.

    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.

    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.

    Love this Series, heard that they may be doing a TV series of these books, voice actors are ok, just don't like it when one well speak in a British accent then when, for the same character, the other reader comes in there's no accents, just something funny if pay attention to it.

    What can I say. If you have made it to book 8 of this series you are already a fan. I both read and listened to this series. I am a huge fan of the 2 narrators. It is nice to have both male and female voices.
