DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

Audiobook Giveaway: The Great Hunt


Dwynwen

It's the first Wednesday in April, so it's time for another audiobook giveaway! Here are the rules again for those who aren't familiar with our giveaways:

 

 

Macmillan Audio has partnered with us to bring you an amazing opportunity once again. We are going to give away free copies of each audiobook in the Wheel of Time series between now and when the final book is published.

 

On the first Wednesday of each month (and on the first and third Wednesdays of the month once we get to the final few books), I will post an audio clip for one of the audiobooks. The book featured in the clip will be the one we're giving away at the time.

 

As each clip is posted online, I will randomly select three winners to receive either a free digital audiobook download or a free CD. This contest is open to anybody world-wide, but non-US residents can only receive the digital download.

 

Entering to win is simple. Every time I post an audio clip, I will post a topic for discussion. Just post a response to the discussion question in the comments section of each news article. The winners will be randomly selected from the comments section exactly one week after I post the article.

 

There can be only one entry per person each time I put up an article. You cannot win more than once for this audiobook promotion.

 

If you are selected as a winner, I will PM you to notify you and request your contact information. Make sure to check your PMs, because if I still cannot reach you after two weeks from the date of my first PM, your prize will be given to another randomly drawn winner.

 

This month, we will be giving away a copy of The Great Hunt. Click here for a clip from the audiobook.

 

This month's question is: What is your favorite scene from The Wheel of Time? You have until Wednesday, April 11th to answer in the comments section. Good luck!

I don't know why, but the first one that came to mind right now was when Mat bargained with the Sea Folk and called her a "daughter of the sands". A lot of my favorite scenes involve Mat using his ancient memories.

Rand telling a joke to the maidens, Egwene's battle in Tel'aran'rhiod in the White Tower and Mat, Noal and Thom saving Moiraine from the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn.

My favorite is when Mat beats Galad and his brother with a quarterstaff when they were training to be warders and he was still weak from his healing in Book 3.

First, I love reading all these and reliving some of the greatest moments in the series.

 

Since I can't really choose a favorite, I'm going to just go with the one I felt was most emotionally stirring of all -- Nynaeve's ride through the borderlands recruiting soldiers to fight alongside her husband. Her intensity and resolve that no matter what it takes, her husband will not ride alone through Tarwin's Gap, is the kind of scene that remind's you what life is really all about!

How to pick a favourite! I don't know...Mat meeting up with Perrin again in Towers of Midnight with the badger...Mat swearing at the Eelfinn and Aelfinn after he's escaped the Tower of Genjei...When Nynaeve sees Lan again for the first time since Moiraine's...accident.

 

No, I think my favourite has to be the whole, Rand almost killing Tam and their conversation beforehand + Tam yelling at Cadsuane afterwards. :)

in the Great Hunt Chapter 37. I enjoyed the alternative lives presented. I especially liked the end of each one:

The scene where Elaine and Rand are doing the wild thing and Min, Aviendha and Brigette are getting drunk so they can't " feel it".

I think one of my favorite moments is when Rand walks in on Aviendha as she is washing up. For such a tough person to run like she did I a little funny. Not to mention we all know what happens next.

My favorite scene(at least one of them) would be in Kinfe of Dreams, when Nynaeve goes to a Border land Inn to talk with the Malkier merchants and remind them of their blood.

"Will Lan Mandragoran ride to the Last Battle alone?"

Then walks away saying she needs to be back in Tear that night, leaving everyone awe struck and teary eyed.

"The Golden Crane flies for Tarmon Gai'don!"

“By the way, your dress is green.” - Verin Mathwin

When she confides in Egwene and confirms that she is indeed Black Ajah.

This is hard there are so many that are so stirring they bring tears to the eye. That said one scene that I always return to is Mats quarter staff Battle with Galad and Gawyn.
