For millions of fans around the globe, the wait for Path of Daggers is over. Sequel to Robert Jordan's international blockbuster bestseller A Crown of Swords, this epic volume continues one of history's greatest fictional journeys and the most extraordinary work of American fantasy ever published--The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and worldwide bestselling series--The Wheel of Time.

The phenomenal tale that is mesmerizing a generation of readers now continues. The Seanchan invasion force is in possession of Ebou Dar. Nynaeve, Elayne, and Aviendha head for Caemlyn and Elayne's rightful throne, but on the way they discover an enemy much worse than the Seanchan. In Illian, Rand vows to throw the Seanchan back as he did once before. But signs of madness are appearing among the Asha'man. In Ghealdan, Perrin faces the intrigues of Whitecloaks, Seanchan invaders, the scattered Shaido Aiel, and the Prophet himself. Perrin's beloved wife, Faile, may pay with her life, and Perrin himself may have to destroy his soul to save her. Meanwhile the rebel Aes Sedai under their young Amyrlin, Egwene al'Vere, face an army that intends to keep them away from the White Tower. But Egwene is determined to unseat the usurper Elaida and reunite the Aes Sedai. She does not yet understand the price that others--and she herself--will pay.

    The book itself was fantastic. Sadly the recording had some mangle parts. I tried jumping back thinking it was my phone but Everytime I got to that part it shipped around. The jumbled issue was consistent and could not be corrected. Again, the book is great, and the narrators are so on. It's the recording that needs corrected.

    I loved the book and give it a 4 star review however the audio book itself is jumpy and skips around a lot and I missed some content. Needs to be re recorded or something.

    Love this Series, heard that they may be doing a TV series of these books, voice actors are ok, just don't like it when one well speak in a British accent then when, for the same character, the other reader comes in there's no accents, just something funny if pay attention to it.

    What can I say. If you have made it to book 8 of this series you are already a fan. I both read and listened to this series. I am a huge fan of the 2 narrators. It is nice to have both male and female voices.
