Summary:

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 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.
Rand is on the run with Min, and in Cairhein, Cadsuane is trying to figure out where he is headed. Rand's destination is, in fact, one she has never considered.
Mazrim Taim, leader of the Black Tower, is revealed to be a liar. But what is he up to?
Faile, with the Aiel Maidens, Bain and Chiad, and her companions, Queen Alliandre and Morgase, is prisoner of Savanna's sept.
Perrin is desperately searching for Faile. With Elyas Machera, Berelain, the Prophet and a very mixed 'army' of disparate forces, he is moving through country rife with bandits and roving Seanchan. The Forsaken are ever more present, and united, and the man called Slayer stalks Tel'aran'rhiod and the wolfdream.
In Ebou Dar, the Seanchan princess known as Daughter of the Nine Moons arrives--and Mat, who had been recuperating in the Tarasin Palace, is introduced to her. Will the marriage that has been foretold come about?
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

    The only real complaint I have about this book is that when you pause it, it will often skip ahead several minutes, so I'm always having to find my place. This has been a problem with a few books though, not just this one. Very annoying.

    This is a good book. I love this series immeasurably. This is a good edition and I love audio books a lot, and these two narrators are very good at capturing different voices from multiple characters. Very well done, the only issue, and it is only slightly bothersome is that sometimes it will repeat a sentence or two. Still I enjoyed listening incredibly.

    I read this series years ago, so I thought I'd pick up where I left off...i think I remember why I just stopped reading this book. Author has created far too many characters of significance, I can barely remember who they are, much less get into their story arc. Furthermore, the characters are all pretty one dimensional and plot advancement seems to work like a video game - beat the next bad guy, obtain the next magic item. There is better fantasy out there. narrator's voice is pleasant.

    It was a good book, had to pay close attention to keep up with everything going on. Great narrators. They did a good job.

    I have been hesitant about listening to audio books in the past, but listening to Winter's Heart changed my mind! I listened to it while driving 90 minutes to and from work each day. Truly made the commute go by quick. I enjoyed Winter's Heart as well! I am most of the way through the series and this read was well worth it.
