It might be a little daunting to start the Wheel of Time, a 14-novel epic fantasy series, but look on the bright side: you'll probably be able to finish it long before A Song of Ice and Fire finishes. A Memory of Light is the legendary conclusion to a fantasy series many people consider to be the most epic ever written.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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-two 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.

Review:

"The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience, and the...evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of the unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades, just as the experience of the First World War and its aftermath gave its imprint to J. R. R. Tolkien's work." The New York Times on The Wheel of Time®

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.

Can't wait for this book to come out! I am a huge fan of RJ's books and to a lesser extent Sandersons books. If u are worried that a new author will ruin the story, don't worry. The last 2 books brought life back into the series by speeding up the pace yet at the same time, providing all the detail that fans have come to know. They have been on par with the first six books in the series, and I can't wait to read RJ's final battle scenes that he wrote himself before he died. Tai'shar South Carolina, and may the last embrace of the mother welcome you home.

So excited for the final book! Love both authors and a huge fan of Sanderson's books. He writes great battle scenes, and has been very true to Jordon's style yet has made it seem fresh again.
