A MEMORY OF LIGHT: WHEEL OF TIME (BOOK 14)- Robert Jordan
The Wheel of Time is one of the biggest and most successful Fantasy Series of all time.
A Memory of Light is the planned 14th and final book of the series. Sadly, as Robert Jordan passed away, it was for a while uncertain what would happen to the series which was at the time unfinished. To fans delight, talented author Brandon Sanderson picked up Jordan’s notes and has all the skills and the backing to finish the series. His first 2 books (of the 3 that he wrote) have been well received. We cannot actually promise that this book will be out in 2011, but it SHOULD be, if not expect it – latest around March 2012.
At the dawn of time, a deity known as the Creator forged the universe and the Wheel of Time, which, as it turns, spins all lives. The Wheel has seven spokes, each representing an age, and it rotates under the One Power, which flows from the True Source. Essentially composed of male and female halves (saidin and saidar) in opposition and in unison, this power turns the Wheel. Those humans who can use this power are known as channelers; the principal organization of such channelers in the books is called the Aes Sedai or ‘Servants of All’ in the Old Tongue.
To catch up… *gulp* you would need to read all 13 of the previous books, which are all in their own rights ‘epic’ ranging from about 600-800 pages I believe. Don’t see it as such a bad thing though because I’m told (I haven’t read this series) that it is one of the very best out there.
