The Last Battle has started. 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. 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.

Meanwhile, Matrim Cauthon prepares for the most difficult challenge of his life. The creatures beyond the stone gateways - the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn - have confused him, taunted him, and left him hanged, his memory stuffed with bits and pieces of other men's lives. He had hoped that his last confrontation with them would be the end of it, but the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills. The time is coming when he will again have to dance with the Snakes and the Foxes, playing a game that cannot be won. The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost.

This penultimate novel of Robert Jordan's number-one New York Times best-selling series - the second of three based on materials he left behind when he died in 2007 - brings dramatic and compelling developments to many threads in the Pattern. The end draws near. Dovie andi se tovya sagain. It's time to toss the dice....

    " Completionist tendencies here, remember? ;) It was good mindless fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 1/23/2014

    " I will be glad when the last book finally comes out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Coldforged Dupuis | 1/22/2014

    " Sets up the final book well. Perhaps not as effective as the previous book toward the end. But still a far cry from some of the middling books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Graeme Brown | 1/18/2014

    " Well-paced sequel to Gathering Storm, Sanderson does a brilliant job of invoking Jordan's narrative while still giving us his unique style. He is a wonderful story-teller. This book ends with the sense that the next one will be the conclusion, despite all the threads Jordan has laid out from book 4 onward. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grant | 1/18/2014

    " A great book. One of the best in the Wheel of Time series. I felt like the last book was very dark without having a great deal of big events or character change. This book was a huge improvement, and it really made me excited for the upcoming last book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kiran | 1/14/2014

    " Read it for the first time ages ago, and I've grown a new appreciation for it every time I've gone through its pages (something approximating 20 times through now). Jordan has a way of telling a story that every time you read it, you realize there's something that you've missed. This same review applies to all of his novels within this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erik | 1/4/2014

    " Sandersons Wheel of Time improvement continues in Towers of Mdnight. The pacing is better than it has been since somewhere around book three, and Sanderson even manages to make me care for the characters again. I now have high hopes for A Memory of Light. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe Murolo | 1/2/2014

    " At this point, I've got to see it through. One more book to go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Priyank | 12/21/2013

    " This was the best of all (i think) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumn | 12/15/2013

    " There are so many plots and sub-plots going on that 1218 pages were barely enough to cover them all and move it forward! The last book will be amazing, the wait for it will suck. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Maston | 12/15/2013

    " A great read. Looking forward to the end of this long and overdue series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 12/14/2013

    " Sanderson does such a great job writing in Jordan's world. Taking up where the last Wheel of Time series extension left off, this one resolves a number of threads, leading us up to the start of the Last Battle. I can hardly wait for book 14! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tigre_azul | 2/6/2013

    " I really enjoy how the character development is continuing in true fashion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shane Noble | 4/6/2012

    " Brilliant. An epic setup for the final book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary | 1/6/2012

    " Loved it! Romance was a bit clunky, but overall great storytelling, and lots of gasps! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 11/20/2011

    " OH MY GOD SO AWESOME "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Piotr | 10/23/2011

    " Defninitely one of the best books in the series. Started pretty slow, but the second part was so packed with awesomeness it almost hurt while reading it. Cant wait for final installment. Its gonna be legendary. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 7/20/2011

    " Did anyone edit this book?? I have never seen so many errors in a published book in my life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 6/18/2011

    " I can't wait for A Memory of Light:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benjamin | 5/22/2011

    " Phenomenal.

    my favorite quote: "Only a fool refused to listen to advice from those older and wiser than himself. But only a fool took all of the advice given him." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyle | 5/18/2011

    " I realized I've never rated any of these books, despite the fact that they make up my favorite fantasy series. I love the way the story cycles through dozens of viewpoints and takes me to many distinct and fascinating locations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Winona | 5/13/2011

    " I've enjoyed the series, though it's too long
    I like how the relationship between men and women is evolving,
    But I don't like how all the main characters are losing their flaws; it makes them less real.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margo | 5/11/2011

    " Good book but I struggled to remember all the plot twists of the previous 12 in the series as well as the numerous characters and places. I hope the next book is the last! The last battle is way overdue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bartee | 5/10/2011

    " Very nice Sequel. Great sections with Matrim Cauthon (my favorite character). Again, I am very impressed with the new author who manages to preserve Robert Jordan's writing style very well! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryan | 5/10/2011

    " A worthy addition to a best-loved series. Characters growing into what you'd hoped they could be. Threads coming together and building toward a tremendous climax.

    This book was everything I'd hoped for, and more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 5/7/2011

    " Best book since Eye of the World. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 5/5/2011

    " I liked this one, but it wasn't quite as good as number 12. I'm really, REALLY excited for the final volume to come out. This trumps Harry Potter by a bazillion. (And I love Harry Potter). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg | 4/28/2011

    " Very good book. Focused a lot on Perrin, one of my favorites. Lots of action, and consolidated some of the storylines. I can't believe I have to wait until March 2012 for the last book. "

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

    " Attaboy Brandon. Very good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 4/18/2011

    " Sanderson stayed true to the characters while picking up the pace of the action a bit, make this a more enjoyable read than some of the books in the middle of the series. Looking forward to book 14! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 4/18/2011

    " I am so excited to read how this story will end. I have enjoyed the books, although I find at time there are too many characters and too many story-lines to keep track of, but this book is finally bringing them together and getting the closer I feel this story needs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scottstack | 4/17/2011

    " Even better than The Gathering Storm. I must read more of Sanderson. "
