Unabridged Audiobook

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.

Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, looms. And mankind is not ready.

The final volume of the Wheel of Time, A Memory of Light, was partially written by Robert Jordan before his untimely passing in 2007. Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn books, and now Stormlight Archive, among others, was chosen by Jordan's editor--his wife, Harriet McDougal--to complete the final volume, later expanded to three books.

In this epic novel, Robert Jordan's international bestselling series begins its dramatic conclusion. Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward--wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders--his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

Egwene al'Vere, the Amyrlin Seat of the rebel Aes Sedai, is a captive of the White Tower and subject to the whims of their tyrannical leader. As days tick toward the Seanchan attack she knows is imminent, Egwene works to hold together the disparate factions of Aes Sedai while providing leadership in the face of increasing uncertainty and despair. Her fight will prove the mettle of the Aes Sedai, and her conflict will decide the future of the White Tower--and possibly the world itself.

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

    Had a few spots that were static and missed a couple minutes

    Audio: Great narration and good audiobook, thought it went back to that 5 minute track style instead of simply using chapters to mark the tracks. I prefer the latter. Book: After returning to form in Knife of Dreams it seems the series is fully back on track, as this volume was another great read.

    Refreshing. Not to diss RJ, but I prefer Sanderson.

  • Matthew Picazzo

    The book is amazing. It is horribly annoying that the audio skips and has distorted sounds, no matter how infrequently it happens.

  • Michael B.

    Fantastic book!! Rating is due to it being unavailable in my region (Australia) despite books 1-11 being available as well as book 13 being available.

  • Alicia S.

    Love this series and I have so many to go - pretty excited about it.

  • Foster J.

    Love this book series! I’ve been through the series multiple times and will go through it again!

  • Daniel M.

    The narration is fantastic!

  • Juan W

    Absolutely the best in the series so far! I loved how it was ending and leading us to an even more exciting book. We jumped right into the next one. This book would be much less exciting without the readers. They do this great work justice!

  • S Hyman

    It was a beautiful work of art that was incomplete by the passing of the original author Robert Jordan. Brandon Sanderson stepped up and did the book and the series justice. The readers, Michael Kramer and Kate Redding, are fabulous and convey the emotions of the characters and the author’s mind’s eye. This book is my third favorite in the series after the first, The Eye if the World, and the last, A Memory of Light.
