Plot 5/5 Can't get more complex than this, and interesting. The pace and story progress is much, much better than some of Jordan's earlier books.
Characters 5/5 All different, all interesting and consistent, lots of them strong.
Writing 4/5 Not literature but Brandon has done a good job.
World 5/5 Huge, varied, complex, different - one of my favourites. Interesting balanced magic mechanics. ( )

The end at last! Happy about that, not a bad one, a little bit boring, some good ideas, Jordan would be quite satisfied...
But writers should never envisioned such great work, or have a better mastery!?
I believe the WoT could have been limited to 6 books!
Maybe the lure of money did it! ( )

My overall feel of the ending of such a great series is one giant oxymoron (as it should be with all great books), I am blessedly melancholy, but I am satisfied. The last book was epic and I'm sure Thom Merrilin would say I am butchering my praise but my words could never be as great as those of Robert Jordan and additionally Sanderson. It was excellently executed and engaging and heart-wrenching. I will say again that I am satisfied with the ending, which is truly the entire book. Thank you Jordan for this incredible world and the stories in it. You and your immense talent are greatly missed. ( )

Book description
Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, readers have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over forty million copies in over thirty languages.

When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork. With The Gathering Storm (Book 12) and Towers of Midnight (Book 13) behind him, both of which were # 1 New York Times hardcover bestsellers, Sanderson now re-creates the vision that Robert Jordan left behind.

Edited by Jordan’s widow, who edited all of Jordan’s books, A Memory of Light will delight, enthrall, and deeply satisfy all of Jordan’s legions of readers.

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass.

What was, what will be, and what is,

may yet fall under the Shadow.

Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The conclusion to the Wheel of Time series draws on notes left by the late Robert Jordan.
