Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, looms. And mankind is not ready.

The final volume of the Wheel of Time, A Memory of Light, was partially written by Robert Jordan before his untimely passing in 2007. Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn books, was chosen by Jordan's editor — his wife, Harriet McDougal — to complete the final book.

The scope and size of the volume was such that it could not be contained in a single book, and so Tor proudly presents The Gathering Storm as the first of three novels that will make up A Memory of Light. This short sequence will complete the struggle against the Shadow, bringing to a close a journey begun almost twenty years ago and marking the conclusion of the Wheel of Time, the preeminent fantasy epic of our era.

In this epic novel, Robert Jordan's international bestselling series begins its dramatic conclusion. Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward- — wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders — his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

Egwene al'Vere, the Amyrlin Seat of the rebel Aes Sedai, is a captive of the White Tower and subject to the whims of their tyrannical leader. As days tick toward the Seanchan attack she knows is imminent, Egwene works to hold together the disparate factions of Aes Sedai while providing leadership in the face of increasing uncertainty and despair. Her fight will prove the mettle of the Aes Sedai, and her conflict will decide the future of the White Tower — and possibly the world itself.

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Review:

"The Gathering Storm does an excellent job of sucking the reader back into the story, reintroducing all the familiar faces and dilemmas Rand and his friends/enemies are in the middle of, and then giving the whole gang a big kick in the rump to get them sprinting for the finish line." Examiner.com

Review:

"There's no doubt that The Gathering Storm deserves an equal place on your top shelf next to the previous eleven volumes. Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson have crafted a remarkable novel fraught with dark, foreboding themes that will remind you why you first fell in love with the series to begin with." DragonMount.com

Review:

"Overall, The Gathering Storm is better than many books in the series, though nowhere near as good as the best ones....The Gathering Storm will leave most readers feeling that WOT is in good hands and is pulling itself out of that hole it dug for itself." FantasyLiterature.com

I've enjoyed ready this whole series so far, even re-reading past books when a new one comes out. Brandon Sanderson did a very good job of keeping with Robert Jordan's voice, it still felt like the same story - and not just because the characters were the same.

This is my "Puddly" pick. Not just because its a GREAT book, but because of how it came to be. It could very easily have been really bad or, not been a book at all. Brandon Sanderson and "Team Jordan" went above and beyond to bring this book to life from the notes and outlines that Jordan worked on even on his deathbed. Even though the voice is different (and it should be) the story and characters are perfectly true to Jordan. It is no less a Wheel of Time book than any of the others. All of this brings a richness and dimension to the book that I've not experienced before. Also, its a REALLY good book!!
