Towers of Midnight

by Robert Jordan

Tom Doherty Associates | November 2, 2010 | Hardcover

Towers of Midnight is rated 4 out of 5 by 4.

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 #1 New York Times bestselling 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing read I would have thouhgt I could never get this excited about a series I have been reading for the past 15 years or more, but this book was wonderful. I am thankful to the new author covering Robert Jordan and koodoos to you for a fine job of writing and trying to maintain his style. I have just finished Towers of Midnight and look forward to the Last Battle. Also want to say hooray for some very interesting parts that came to light...I of course always wondered but will not reveal anything of the contents...thank you and will gladly wait for the last...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Time Line is messed up bad. Well just finished this book last night and thought a bit and read over a few parts before righting my review just to be fair. Even discussed it with a friend. The main complaint I have about this book in particular is the fact of the time-line. Quite a lot of this book takes place before the last book ended and it is really hard to really have a good grasp of the timing of everything sometimes. I just wish he would also stop jumping around all the time as well. It's really annoying to be left hanging in one part of the story then have to wade through junk to get back to decent story. Also I cannot imagine how ANYONE ever considered that this book could be only a part of 1. It's 800+ pages long for holy sake. I think I may have injured my arm holding it up to read...lol. The old problem of huge descriptions for the most menial of things is still here as well. You will have to fight yourself not to just skip paragraphs or pages at a time. All this considered I did enjoy the book but would have a lot happier if the things I mentioned above hadn't been there. Feel free to send me a pm here if you want to discuss this book in more detail. I love to talk about the books I like especially with someone who enjoys the same type of books. Warning though, I had to recomend that my friend not bother reading the series as he never finished the first book. He's only been married a year and has better things todo I hope ;)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brandaon can only do so much. Edited to add** Spoilers ahead 10 minutes ago I finished Towers of Midnight, so while it is fresh in my mind I've decided to sit down and write a review. Many avid Robert Jordan fans will tell you that when you get to the middle of many of his books (specially when you start reading The Path of Daggers the books following after that) that middle is very dry. You might find your self skipping sentences and hoping that you'll start reading in your favorite character's point of view so it's easier to digest. Tower's of Midnight is the middle book. As many of us know The Gathering Storm, The Tower's of Midnight and the final book were suppose to be all ONE book. When I picked up the book some part of me knew that Brandon Sanderson was only going to be able to do so much at keeping this book lively and entertaining as it is in the middle, where Robert Jordan has had problems in the past keeping it from dragging on. I felt that Tower's of Midnight did it's job. It kept us in the loop and wanting more. But it also left me with a sense of being dissatisfied. I noted many spelling mistakes and a few grammatical errors. By the end of the book I had a feeling that the publishing company had been rushed into getting it to print. HOWEVER! To stop this from being a negative review, I think us as a collective audience were relieved and surprised on a general note on a few things that occurred in the book. Matt's daring trip to bring Moiraine home to Thom ended having a few unexpected turns which left me holding my breath. Rand choosing to break the seals while expected was also nerve wracking. While this book left feeling like someone didn't try as hard as they could of, I understand the strain that must of been put on the people who got this book out to us. I will hope that when the final book comes out, the zeal I felt at reading The Gathering Storm will come back and we will once again be sitting on the edge of our seats waiting to see what happens at The Last Battle. Dovie'andi se tovya sagain. It's time to toss the dice.

Editorial Reviews

“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®
