Robert Jordan's "Warrior of the Altaii" To Be Published


This is most unexpected, indeed!

Robert Jordan's first novel is going to published. This is not connected to The Wheel of Time, and is standalone (unless the manuscript is physically too large to print as one book.)

Tor.com has announced the book here: https://www.tor.com/2019/01/18/robert-jordan-warrior-of-the-altaii-coming-from-tor-books-in-2019/

You can read more about it here: https://dragonmount.com/index/featured-homepage-article/warrior-of-the-altaii/

Draw near and listen, or else time is at an end.

The watering holes of the Plain are drying up, the fearsome fanghorn grow more numerous, and bad omens abound. Wulfgar, a leader of the Altaii people, must contend with twin queens, warlords, prophets and magic in hopes of protecting his people and securing their future. Elspeth, a visitor from another world, holds the answers, but first Wulfgar must learn to ask the right questions.

But what if the knowledge that saves the Altaii will also destroy them?

Publication date: Oct. 8, 2019
Formats: Hardback, Audio, Ebook (Paperback approx a year later)

I look forward to knowing more about the project in the coming months. Namely - the cover art. "don't judge a book by its cover!" however that's one aspect of upcoming books I've always enjoyed being revealed.
