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.

This author proves why he was chosen to finish the greatest fantasy epic ever!
Great writing by Sanderson
Brandon Sanderson, does an incredible job of sticking to the meat of the story as well as answering many questions the readers have had on their minds for many years. He also does a great job of following Robert Jordan's outline for the story. It Would be nice However to also have this book listed under "Robert Jordan" as well ad Brandon Sanderson's book listings. I had s difficult time attempting to find this book since it wasn't listed with Robert Jordan's other books.
Brandon Sanderson takes up Jordan's torch with style, cohesion, and eloquence. His deep familiarity with the characters leaves us feeling Jordan's spirit though the whole book, touched with a subtle freshness only a Wheel of Time lover can truly admire and acknowledge. Great job Brandon! Bravo on all accounts!
