Product Description

Review

“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.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Nov. 2 2010
Format: Hardcover
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.

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!

What a wrap up! I have the enter series of Wheel of time and I have read them all three times. Now, finally, it is finished. Brandon Sanderson writing style is much different that Robert Jordan. Jordan will spend a lot of time on just what each character is wearing whereas Sanderson seems to skip over this part and gets to the storyline. Throughout the series I was getting a little annoyed with what dress show was wearing on which occasion. It became a little tedious. This book dives right into the story and you cannot put it down. The ending is a bit of a surprise and I do not know if I like it or Not. It is what it is. Good read though.

Anyone who has read the Wheel of Time series will understand. I was able to buy these books for a fraction of what they would have cost me at chapters so I am very happy with them. They allowed me to FINALLY finish the series after years of putting it off. Would use again.

I loved this book. Featured mainly around Perrin and Mat, but pretty much every character gets some page time. One can't say to much with out giving plot lines away. It's good, it's not slow. Actually it moves pretty fast and you will probably find yourself not wanting to put it down, and at the same time wanting to savour every word as the series is coming to an end. Events will happen that will make you say "finally" and new ones that will have you holding your breath and turning the pages faster. Can't wait for the final book.

Robert Jordan is probably the best fantastic author out there and Brandon Sanderson made an incredible job of pursuing the story to it's end as Jordan wished upon the end of it's life. All the cultural traits and references Jordan developed for the different peoples in the serie are accurately used by Brandon. And the new author still managed to have it's own style without screwing the story. 3 thumb up, including a big toe!

After struggling mightily against sheer boredom across this saga, I am rewarded with some decent writing. The late Mr. Jordan had a fine eye for plot but a pedestrian pen. Mr Sanderson is a well anointed successor.

Robert Jordan is the absolute master...but Brandon has done a fantastic job of studying his work and stepping in his shoes! The excitement and intensity, chapter after chapter was so overwhelming that you will not be able to put this book down! Trust me! It is fast and furious and will leave you breathless time and time again!!
