'And it came to pass in those days, as it had come before and would come again, that the Dark lay heavy on the land and weighed down the hearts of men, and the green things failed, and hope died.' - Charal Drianaan te Calamon, The Cycle of the Dragon.
In the Field of Merrilor the rulers of the nations gather to join behind Rand al'Thor, or to stop him from his plan to break the seals on the Dark One's prison - which may be a sign of his madness, or the last hope of humankind. Egwene, the Amyrlin Seat, leans toward the former.
In Andor, the Trollocs seize Caemlyn.
In the wolf dream, Perrin Aybara battles Slayer.
Approaching Ebou Dar, Mat Cauthon plans to visit his wife Tuon, now Fortuona, Empress of the Seanchan.
All humanity is in peril - and the outcome will be decided in Shayol Ghul itself. The Wheel is turning, and the Age is coming to its end. The Last Battle will determine the fate of the world. . .
For twenty years The Wheel of Time has enthralled more than forty million readers in over thirty-two languages. A Memory of Light brings this majestic fantasy creation to its richly satisfying conclusion.
Working from notes and partials left by Robert Jordan when he died in 2007, and consulting with Jordan's widow, who edited all of Jordan's books, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson has recreated the vision Jordan left behind.
A few Points
I agree that maybe £11 for a book is expensive, especially as I have ordered the hard back and am only buying the digital version because I am out of my home country where it will be shipped and I just can't wait to read it, but lets be fair it will be a massive book which will last longer then a few movies which would cost more so don't be to harsh.
Secondly Mr Sanderson finished the book a long time ago but as it was the end of probably the most epic series of books in our current history and for obvious reasons the wife of Mr Jordan and everyone involved wants it to be perfect and after the experiences this series of books has given me over the years I'm willing to grudgingly give her/them some slack.
Have I paid for the privilege of reading this series? yes. But make no mistake I feel truly Lucky to live in a time where such a series has been written. Many Thanks to everyone involved in the telling of this epic tale and best wishes to all involved. RIP Mr Jordan and thank you for everything! Also in my opinion Mr Sanderson has done Robert proud, good job!
I am baffled by the April release date , while the rest of the world is on jan the 8th .... Come on apple wake up
Reason for late release
Yes the hardback edition was available as of yesterday but Robert Jordan's wife Harriet was adamant this book should be treated the same way as all others in the series allowing the paper version to become a best seller in memory of Robert before ebook sales interfered with the data. This was her and her husbands wish for right or for wrong and nothing to do with the publishers or apple. The book is going to be amazing, apparently the entire epilogue is all Robert Jordan's original words and I for one can't wait to finish it.
