Publisher's Summary

The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off. But his attempt to make a truce with the Seanchan is shadowed by treachery that may cost him everything. Whatever the price, though, he must have that truce. And he faces other dangers.

The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believes are fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes. Even the White Tower itself is no longer a place of safety. Now Rand, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and Elayne, Nynaeve and Lan, and even Loial, must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph.

What the Critics Say

"Explodes with motion, as multiple plot lines either conclude or advance, and the march to Tarmon Gai'don, the climactic last battle between the Dragon Reborn and the Dark One, begins in earnest." (Publishers Weekly)
"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." (The New York Times)
"Jordan has a powerful vision of good and evil, but what strikes me as most pleasurable...is all the fascinating people moving through a rich and interesting world." (Orson Scott Card)

    "Story still excellent, audio quality is terrible"

    While the overall story was still entertaining, frequent audio issues such as quality degradation, skipping and repetitions really ruined my experience in some parts.

    "great story, suffered in quality"

    Audio quality drops at several points. The audio crackles or simply stops and skips forward a few lines in some parts of the recording.

    "Skips and sputters"

    The audio skips fairly regularly. Not often, but it skips like a scratched CD at times. Frustrating. The story and orators are as excellent as ever though.

    This of all the books requires the most faith in the story to get. Too bad more wasn't made of Matt's wedding.

    "Really loved this story."
    If you could sum up Knife of Dreams in three words, what would they be?

    I knew this was going to be Robert Jordans last book he wrote in the series weather he did or not he was able to finish a lot of story lines and answer a lot of questions to the plot I had. I am looking forward to Sandersons books but Jordan finished his portion of the story perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    the audio skipped a ton in the book. this is a digital format why did it skip full sentences or paragraphs?! I was super annoyed by this. I didnt mark the locations where this happened as I was either driving or doing yard work when I noticed and I do not want to stop write down where this was. just be warned audio skips probably 5 or 6 times through the story.

    Have listened to the same parts on multiple devices and get the same choppy almost static. It's annoying. Otherwise, excellent.

    "Refreshing!"

    This booked saved the series for me! I almost gave up on the wheel of time after Crossroads of Twilight, but this one turned it all around and brought me back to what I love about Jordan's books.
