(Wheel of Time #14)
Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, readers have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over forty million copies in over thirty languages.
When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork. With The Gathering Storm (Book 12) and Towers of Midnight (Book 13) behind him, both of which were # 1 New York Times hardcover bestsellers, Sanderson now re-creates the vision that Robert Jordan left behind.
Edited by Jordan’s widow, who edited all of Jordan’s books, A Memory of Light will delight, enthrall, and deeply satisfy all of Jordan’s legions of readers.
The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass.
What was, what will be, and what is,
may yet fall under the Shadow.
Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.
It’s true that I won’t even be caught up with the series by the time this comes out (I’ve got the two books before this one still left to read), but considering there are 15 books in the series and it’s been a long, long wait… FINALLY! YAY! I’ve enjoyed the Wheel of Time series so far, and I’m about to start reading the first one in which Brandon Sanderson took over / help finish them once Robert Jordan passed away. Can’t wait. :)
