The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off. But his attempt to make a truce with the Seanchan is shadowed by treachery that may cost him everything. Whatever the price, though, he must have that truce. And he faces other dangers.

The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believes are fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes. Even the White Tower itself is no longer a place of safety. Now Rand, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and Elayne, Nynaeve and Lan, and even Loial, must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Todd | 2/20/2014

    " This is a pretty solid book. I felt it improved significantly and returned to Jordan's first few books in the series. I had a hard time predicting what would happen next in the plot and the characters were well done. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Megan | 2/17/2014

    " I have never read such a long book where absolutely NOTHING happens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 2/10/2014

    " This is probably my favorite book since the early part of the series, probably because a lot of it dealt with Mat, who I find to be the most interesting of the 3. It's sad it's Jordan's last, but has me excited to read the new ones again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candida | 1/31/2014

    " This was a good book. It dragged until about halfway through but then it finally got exciting, especially near the end. Now I get to read the new one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 1/26/2014

    " Yay! This book has put this series back on track! After the slow movement of the previous 3 books, things are finally happening! There were some parts that I was on the edge of my seat with anticipation! All the plotlines have moved forward and some actually get resolved. There was even something I suspected several books ago and it was revealed to be true in this one. I'm definitely hopeful for the rest of the series! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tatiana | 1/23/2014

    " So so bad. Skip this book & just read a synopsis. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Burke | 1/22/2014

    " Still enjoying the series but it all starts to run together because there are so many books. Hope they make movies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evelyn | 1/20/2014

    " Another epic volume in this series, in which - for a change - a few things do happen. But not enough to fill 800+ pages! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simon | 1/20/2014

    " Still slogging through, though this is better than some of his recent books in this never-ending series. I had contemplated trying to start over again from the beginning since I'd forgotten so much, but I refuse to cave in to Robert Jordan's evil schemes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 12/22/2013

    " Great Book! In his last book, Jordan turned the series around going back to the exciting, intense and gripping series that it started out as. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chaffee Viets | 11/1/2013

    " Another great one in the Wheel of Time series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chamberk | 9/23/2013

    " Pretty good (for the first time in a while) but parts did seem rushed. Granted, it was because he was dying... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Harry | 8/10/2013

    " Such a breath of fresh air after the crossroads of twilight, there is much to enjoy here. The resolution of several storylines that seem to have dragged on a bit too long and the setting up of some new ones. Some good twists and even some good humour "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Hicks | 1/31/2013

    " I liked this one much better than the last couple books. The battle with Rand against the trollocs in the beginning was really cool and there was more bouncing around stories with Mat, Elayne, and Perrin but some of them are more resolved as the book finishes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jason | 1/2/2013

    " was expected more action...3 to go "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MMG | 11/11/2012

    " I read the first one as a freshman in high school...I couldn't just not finish it once I'd already put something like 10,000 pages of effort into the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pranay | 9/2/2012

    " At last, a book in which the plot advances quite a bit. The best I've read since Shadow Rising, book 4. Editors of this series should have taken a stronger stand against all the needless dawdling in previous books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 4/8/2012

    " What to say? It continues the incredible ride Jordan began 10 books ago. As with almost all of them, it's frustrating that it ends, and makes you imaptient for the next one. Can't WAIT to see the return of Moraine... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lou | 3/19/2012

    " Read for the Seasonal Reading Challenge Winter 09/10 task 25.3 (b. Weapon: knife & c. Library: personal) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 10/28/2011

    " Continuing the tale of the young people from the Two Rivers - there were some parts of the book which I felt dragged a bit but some key items are dealt with in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keri-Lynn | 10/4/2011

    " This one kept my attention but lagged in places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen Pulsipher | 8/23/2011

    " Something happened! Huge step up from the last two books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Radu | 5/9/2011

    " A great coming of age book for many of the main characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 4/30/2011

    " The acceleration of events brings a faster plot arc, you can feel the series start a course towards a culmination now "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter | 4/26/2011

    " Are you kidding me? Something happens in this book? Hell, yeah! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alesha | 4/20/2011

    " This book took me forever to finish. There were so many chapters of filler material...people walking around brooding, etc. My husband says the next book is better. I still like the series but this was definitely not my favorite book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jarrod | 4/20/2011

    " Reading this books again has shown that my past boredom came not from the detail but from the time between books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 4/1/2011

    " This is the book where Jordan really start to wrap it up and the story moves on. Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 3/24/2011

    " ROBERT JORDAN ON SPEED HOLY HELL "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 3/24/2011

    " Starting to pick up in momentum! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan | 2/16/2011

    " Number 11 in the series and apparently the second last. Starts outstandingly and continues well, better than the previous effort anyway. I am continuing to find my enormous self made list of characters useful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dorian | 2/15/2011

    " I think this was my favorite in the series so far. I LOVED Egwene's plot line! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Magnus | 2/15/2011

    " Somewhere between 3 and 4 stars, favoring slightly 4. The drastic decline of the series wasn't quite so noticeable in this last installment by Jordan. "
