A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson
  

Lovereading view...

This is the 14th and last of The Wheel of Time series which has been concluded posthumously from notes Robert left behind. He died in 2007. I do think you need to be familiar with his world to appreciate this, although an extensive prologue will fill you in on the state of play of the main players. The 900-page book is in essence one huge battle after another. With a swathe of deaths, most ends are tied up and the big questions answered. If read fast then be prepared to be exhausted by the end.

Synopsis

A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson

'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 well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
