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 penultimate novel of Robert Jordan’s number-one New York Times best-selling series - the second of three 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....

The "Middle Book" Problem

I finished listening to this really good audio book.
After "The Gathering Storm", Brandon Sanderson was anew able to give us a really good book from "The Wheel of Time". Well with the high expectations I had from listening to the former and Brandons other Books I was satisfied, but not overwhelmed.

It is not his best book, but its a really good one. The problem here might have been, that Brandon Sanderson did a lot of great ones and that it's a "Middle Book". He has to prepare everything for the big ending in the next book but still has to tie some string, dangeling from the previous one. It's simply not possible to make the middle book as good, as the first or last of a trilogy, just because you explored the big mystery and you can't have the climax yet.

Dont forget the narrators. Again Michael Kramer and Kate Readding did an astounding job with this.

Maybe I do the book some wrong, by giving "only" 4 stars, maybe not, you have to decide for yourself. If you like audio books and want to know the end of "The Wheel of Time" it's a must. And as I said... it's a really good book.

wirklich sehr gut

Ich muss zugeben, dass mir die letzten beiden Bücher, die von Brandon Sanderson nach Notizen von Robert Jordan geschrieben wurden, besser gefallen, als die "Originale". Irgendwie versteht es Brandon Sanderson auf eine ganz eigene Art, den Spannungsbogen zu erhalten und zu vertiefen.
Auch die Entwicklung der einzelnen Hauptcharaktere ist sehr gut gelungen, ich hoffe, dass Lan noch genug Raum erhält, er ist einer meiner Lieblings-Nebendarsteller.
Für neue Hörer dürfte von Interesse sein, dass sich der Sprecher der männlichen Abschnitte der Bücher (also aus der Sicht von Mat, Rand, Perrin, etc.) geschrieben, deutlich verbessert hat. Ich habe mir gestern aus Neugierde nochmals "The Eye of the World" angehört und war entsetzt, wie gehetzt und teilweise lieblos dieses Buch doch teilweise gelesen wurde. Ein Lob an Michael Kramer, dass er sich über die Reihe hinweg so gesteigert hat, schade, dass die ersten Bücher so "verhunzt" wurden.
