The final book in the Wheel of Time series, A Memory of Light, is finally about to hit the bookshelves.
Believe me when I say I have often thought that I would never be able to write that sentence. We have talked about this series previously, in posts about book 12, The Gathering Storm, and Book 13, Towers of Midnight.
The book will be out January 8, 2013, which is significantly later than first predicted. I hope that means that Brandon Sanderson has spent extra time making sure that this final volume is a fitting end to this long series and ties up all the loose ends. That might be too much to hope for, but I’ll be happy if he even comes close. There are some big events planned for the release date, as well as an extended book tour, which will include Robert Jordan’s wife, Harriet. You can read more about the events surrounding the release here.
I will get the book and read it as soon as I can and try to post my thoughts on it as soon as possible. I would like to do some re-reading of the series prior to that, but as we have discussed before, a full re-reading would take far too long. In the meantime, let me know your thoughts on this series finally being completed. We can discuss some hopes and dreams and speculation about what will be in this final book as well.
