Book Description

Oct. 4 2011 Wheel of Time (Book 13)

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 latest novel of Robert Jordan’s #1 New York Times bestselling series--the second 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.

Product Description


“The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience, and the . . . evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of the unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades, just as the experience of the First World War and its aftermath gave its imprint to J. R. R. Tolkien’s work.”
--The New York Times on The Wheel of Time®

About the Author

Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.

Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.

Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis. 


BRANDON SANDERSON grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska. He lives in Utah with his wife and children and teaches creative writing at Brigham Young University. In addition to completing Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time®, he is the author of such bestsellers as the Mistborn trilogy, Warbreaker, The Alloy of Law, The Way of Kings, Rithmatist, and Steelheart. He won the 2013 Hugo Award for “The Emperor’s Soul,” a novella set in the world of his acclaimed first novel, Elantris.

4.0 out of 5 stars The last battle, part 1 Nov. 2 2010
After twelve books of slow-moving, intricate plotting (and a hefty dose of filler), the Last Battle against the Dark One is here.

So is "Towers of Midnight" good? Oh yeah. Brandon Sanderson and the late Robert Jordan came up with a solid penultimate volume, sprinkled with solid characterization, epic moments, and the occasional discovery that will probably have you bouncing and screaming with joy. It's a rich, fast-moving experience that will leave you on edge for the grand finale.

And yes, thanks for asking -- it IS hard to review this without spoiling too much.

While the previous book was more centered on Rand and his inner turmoil, this one centers on Mat and Perrin -- there are countless intertwined subplots in this one, but the important ones rest on those two. Specifically, Mat has to grapple with the gholam at long last, and Perrin has to work out his issues as well as his wolfish other side.

Tarmon Gai'don is coming, and Jordan and Sanderson really hammer it home that this will not be an easy or quick battle. "Towers of Midnight" has a lot riding on it: not only does it have to build up to an epic grand finale in the next book, but it has to start wrapping up all the important storylines. Does it deliver?

For the most part, yes -- Sanderson doesn't quite capture a few of the characters' personalities (such as Mat), but overall this is a smashing book. Sanderson's vibrant juggernaut prose actually meshes very well with Jordan's intricate, slow-moving storylines. And despite Tarmon Gai'don looming over the characters' heads, there are actually some funny moments (mostly from Mat) and some powerful, riveting ones that seem to leap out from the pages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable enough Dec 2 2010
Towers of Midnight is the penultimate book in the Wheel of Time and the second to be written by Brandon Sanderson after Robert Jordan's untimely death in 2007. Readers who liked the previous Sanderson-produced WOT volume, The Gathering Storm, will find plenty more of the same to love in ToM.

The action moves along at a good clip and many of the annoying character traits (braid-tugging, skirt-smoothing, sniffing,etc) are toned down or absent. Meanwhile a number of prophecies are resolved, almost at breakneck speed, and there is clearly a sense of momentum gathering in the runup to the final showdown between Rand and the Dark One. Jordan, unfortunately, fell madly love with his work and readers who spent years suffering in between lacklustre installments that hardly moved the plot along should be particularly relieved.

That said, there are some faults which need to be mentioned. From a technical standpoint, Sanderson is hardly the writer Jordan was. His prose drags; it's leaden, repetitive and often downright uninsipired, making for some particularly tedious and awkward passages. Check out the last scene in the prologue and the description of General Ituralde's battle for examples of what I mean.

Also, ToM is extremely Perrin-heavy because his arc was chronologically the farthest behind. Much of it involves dull, Rocky-like training montages set in the World of Dreams and most of the rest sees Perrin and his supporting cast sitting around talking. Some terrific new stuff does happen at the end, but getting there is a slog.

Meanwhile, Sanderson has Mat flirt with hot women - while telling himself that, as a married man, he's only checking them out for his friends - so often that it verges on parody.

4.0 out of 5 stars Many epic moments, lots of plot movement. April 24 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can feel the momentum building towards the end, and characters that seemed slightly off in the last book (i.e. Mat) are back in full form. Highly recommended. If you started giving the series a pass, you owe it to yourself to get back in and see it to the end. Quite worth it!

I enjoyed the book and enjoyed the series. It was a big time commitment with the length and number of books, but worth it. I felt like I'd left an old friend behind when I finished them all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable series finale Feb. 22 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read the entire series through the years and I am very glad that Brandon Sanderson was able to complete it with Robert Jordan's ideas and notes.
I enjoyed the final book and it did a good job of concluding many of the sub-plots.
