Publisher's Summary

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....

Doesn't wrap as nicely as Gathering Storm

This was a solid and action packed listen. As usual, Michael and Kate do an excellent job with the read. If Rand and Egwene are the primary characters in this series, they have only brief appearances in Towers of Midnight. Perrin and Mat's stories finally get moving and are almost resolved. I would say that anything unpredictable occurs in those story lines, but they are satisfying nonetheless. The flow and story is so tight I actually felt this book ended too abruptly. However, I look forward to the conclusion coming in the next book.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!

Brandon Sanderson really understands this wonderful world that Robert Jordan has created. I am saddened that we will only get one more book and then nothing but imagination. I have listened to all of the books in this series and I remain captivated by the charactors and the Narration. Kate Redding is really the best there is and there would be no Matt without Micheal Kramer. Mr. Sanderson has another loyal follower.

A Towering Series

As I listened to this book, and look forward to reading thepages of the printed version, I am reminded of Elaida in her stately office high atop the White Tower, overseeing her estranged developments. Lofty is the series of Wheel of Time, and this book is by far no disappointment. When I finally reached book 10 back in 2003 after my first reading of the series, I felt that my my world was less real, and like I was dreaming - only awake in Andor or one of the other kingdoms in WoT universe. I knew book 11 was coming, and couldn't wait. Then Mr. Jordon was taken from us with misfortune and my heart sank! How can we find out what will happen next? Who could spin this tale as masterfully as RJ? Well, you should know the answer to that if you're thinking on this book! I wouldn't recommend it read on it's own... you need to put it in context, though supposedly it should be okay stood on it's own.
Right, what's it about? The beginning is as many fo the other books, setting scenes and building threads to the unfoldings tory lines. Though I feel the prologue section was not as exciting as previous volumes in this series. The build up in the book towards Tai-mon Gaidon is fantastic, though, and the lead on from Egwene's new leadership in The now mended White Tower reads (or listens!) flawlessly. The build up of Perrin's leadership is also handled well, as he finally accepts his role of General elect, and come's face to face with past demons in corssing paths with the Whitecloaks. Mat's forray into the realm of Snakes and Fox's plays out well, and we finally get to find out what giving up half the light of the world to save the world means! Okay, I kinda guessed, but it was still very exciting! ;)
And as Rand becomes Lews Therrin, more and more, you read thinking why doesn't Tar-Mon Gaidon start already?!? But then you realise, it already has! And it is a battle that has raged since time began. I can't wait to see how Alludra's Dragons eat up trollocs on the front lines!!

So happy not to be disappointed!

This is a VERY interesting adventure to partake in...Sanderson does a great job ending the story. I seldom read those very very long fantasy series, they usually loose tempo and thrill along the way but here are a selection of 'persons' that goes on fascinating me, actually the personage in the books are of greater import than the story itself...which does not mean that the story is uninteresting or bad in any way, but the persons has come alive in my imagination and that is one thing I believe is a great achievement of an author! Good job and Thanks! (The reading is as always superb;-)

Thank you Mr Sanderson...

What made the experience of listening to Towers of Midnight the most enjoyable?

For me this book is all about nostalgia, I read the other books of the series as a teenager and loved them but some of the novels became drawn out and tedious, waiting for Nynaeve to tug her braid and get angry at the 'wool headed' men. Brandon has brought back all the fun and excitement of the first few books and swept me back into a world I loved once again. I was skeptical at first, I brought this just so I could finally say I was going to finish the series but I'm so glad I did. He writes the characters beautifully and does more than justice to RJ's vision. If you have enjoyed any of the first few books this is a must read/listen because of all the insights that tie right back to the beginning of the Wheel Of Time. He has not forgotten a thing!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Honestly I loved Nynaeve & Egwene this book, in other books I've found them rude, bitchy and annoying (even wanting to skip chapters with them in it) but Brandon brings out their softer, more human side. The evolving of the characters was something I really appreciated in this book.

Have you listened to any of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have listened to other WOT readings, they do a remarkable job - extremely easy to listen to and they voice the characters well. WOT has so many characters but they give each one a personality and thought process all of their own. You can hear them enjoying the story as much as you do.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

light blind it, we're almost there...
