The Gathering Storm: Book Twelve of the Wheel of Time Free Audiobook Download by Brandon Sanderson,Robert Jordan

Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan's successor and co-author of the Wheel of Time, has taken over the series from his mentor. The Gathering Storm is the twelfth book in the series and Brandon's first venture into writing for the Wheel of Time. In this audiobook, Michael Kramer and Kate Reading narrate for a full cast featuring different vocal styles to give listeners a unique experience.

Brandon Sanderson describes the Gathering Storm, the twelfth volume of the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, as a "storm of action and revelation" that moves quickly and leaves no stone unturned. Homeland Security Secretary Ron Bryne is hunting an elusive terrorist, while Rand al'Thor and Perrin Aybara work to uncover the secret behind their father's madness.

This book of the Wheel of Time series is a tough one to follow. It feels very much like Robert Jordan's death made it more difficult for Sanderson, without his authorial presence, to maintain as tight a plotline. The Gathering Storm involves all the main characters from the previous three books and states its goal to be an epic conclusion to this series, but it fails in many ways.

With The Gathering Storm, the 12th book of Wheel of Time, Sanderson has written a thoroughly entertaining entry into the series. He manages to bring Jordan's world to life with his creativity and descriptive abilities. By pulling from every point in the series, he even manages to create truly moving moments that are new and exciting in this entry. However, this is not an easy listen for fans who have already read the books or listened to audiobooks before. This novel is slower than others thus requiring a lot more concentration and attention span.

The Gathering Storm: Book Twelve of the Wheel of Time is the twelfth volume in Brandon Sanderson's re-imagining of Robert Jordan's bestselling epic fantasy series. The Gathering Storm is a perfect example of how each book can be a different story and that it's okay to have different narrators for the same character.

It'll take time before any real changes are seen in the world of the Wheel of Time. However, with the Gathering Storm looming, some may be able to reap some rewards.
