A Memory of Light (Wheel of Time #14) by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
A Memory of Light (Wheel of Time #14)

Rian Satterwhite, January 28, 2013

What a finish! I mean, really... what a finish!

Sanderson does a masterful job here of working with and fleshing out Jordan's final notes. The resolutions found within these pages have been a long time coming and are quite satisfying, as are, I must say, those plots left unresolved. In 908 pages there are inevitably a few points where language use may jar you and seem slightly inconsistent with the character or scene. I think that this is nearly impossible to avoid given a second author finishing the series. Yet Sanderson keeps a brisk pace as plot line after plot line and character after character receives their final scene. And then to get to the final chapter, knowing that they are strictly Jordan's own words... a fitting end to a beloved series. Well done. Your grand vision is at last complete, Mr. Jordan.
