The Conclusion of the Wheel of Time



Finally, the end has come for the Wheel of Time series. After about 20 years and 14 books, the ending will be revealed (in hardcover and audiobook) in January 2013.





For those getting the book first day of release, or in hardcover period, check this out....https://www.facebook.com/events/342675935784800/ show your support or wanting to buy the book by attending.

I plan to start (re)reading the series in November, as I believe I'll be finished The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest by then. Once I finish Memory of Light, I'll dedicate a post to that book and the series, etc...This is just to let people know that the final book is a few months away, whether or not they're caught up or not. On the day of release, I'll post the series prologue here for the very very beginning.

The series is one of the best in 'traditional' fantasy. It is different from Ice and Fire. It is different from Stormlight. It is similar to Lord of the Rings...at first.

There is a very well-written tribute, spoiler free, found here....by someone who is a BIG WoT fan, and somehow got to read the final book..... http://www.dragonmount.com/index.php/News/amol/dear-robert-jordan
