What is The Shadow Rising Audiobook?
The Shadow Rising Audiobook is a fantasy audiobook by American author Robert Jordan, the fourth audiobook in his series The Wheel of Time Audiobook Free. This audiobook is considered by many fans to be the current pinnacle of Robert Jordan’s near-legendary Wheel of Time Audiobook series.
Despite being the longest volume, clocking in at 393,000 words, The Shadow Rising Audiobook is a showcase of Jordan’s writing where his strengths are in full evidence and the weaknesses that bog down later volumes have yet to become overwhelming.
The Shadow Rising Audiobook did everything right when it comes to continuing a series by continuing to flush out the characters and their relationships in addition to moving the plot forward.
The plot of The Shadow Rising Audiobook free
At the beginning of the audiobook, Rand al’Thor has just claimed the crystal sword Callandor to prove himself the Dragon Reborn. He is approached by Lanfear; and the fortress ‘Stone of Tear’ is stormed by Trollocs and Fades, sent by another Forsaken (Sammael), while a third, Semirhage, sends her followers into the Stone, to oppose Sammael’s forces. In defense, Rand uses Callandor to create a lightning storm killing all the Trollocs and Fades.
Rand then departs for the Aiel Waste, to which Egwene al’Vere and Moiraine Damodred accompany him. Mat Cauthon, counseled by the Stone of Tear’s Aelfinn ter’angreal, follows Rand. Perrin Aybara, after hearing of trouble in Two Rivers, his native region, returns thereto, accompanied by Faile Bashere. Elayne Trakand, Nynaeve al’Meara, and Thom Merrilin depart to Tarabon to hunt the Black Ajah, while Min Farshaw arrives in Tar Valon to report to the Amyrlin Siuan Sanche.
Thus, The Shadow Rising Audiobook follows four groups of characters in four plotlines.

If there’s one novel in the series that proves Jordan’s vision, it’s The Shadow Rising Audiobook; it’s unfortunate, though, that this level of quality and this style of storytelling could not continue throughout the rest of the volumes, for if it had, I’m sure fans would have had a series as critically lauded as George R.R. Martin’s excellent A Song of Ice and Fire Audiobook.
Is The Shadow Rising Audiobook the best volume in the series? Yes, I believe it is. There was a well-done balance between character and plot development which moved the overall story arc along in a way that remained engaging and exciting for the reader.
Is it also a prophet warning readers of what’s to come? Yes, unfortunately, it is that, too.
