by | Read by Michael Kramer, Kate Reading

Fantasy • 34.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

The narration of this work is truly miraculous. Kate Reading and Michael Kramer breathe emotion and veracity into a varied cast of characters, deftly teasing out their complex ambitions and motivations. When author Robert Jordan died before finishing his Wheel of Time series, fans despaired. Happily, he left behind much of the conclusion in passages and notes, so Brandon Sanderson was hired to finish the series. In the first of the three final books, the mood has turned decidedly dark as the Last Battle looms and hero Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to control the madness growing within him. Both narrators bring intensity and passion to this much-loved series, giving nuanced performances even to minor characters.
