Worth it. ( )

Sanderson has done a great job of finishing the series. Only a 4 because I was dispointed with Rand's end of the story. ( )

A Perfect Conclusion

A true epic spanning 14 books ending in a majestic and satisfying way. I couldn't ask for a better ending. ( )

The whole issue with the digital edition being delayed still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. However, I finally got to read it!

It's sad to say goodbye to so many old friends, but there were also a few laugh out loud moments. It was an ending, a fitting ending. Farewell, my friends, and good luck. ( )

God dammit.
It's done, it's over.
After nearly a year, it's over now. The journey that started with the Eye Of The World ends with A Memory of Light, after so many days and hours spent reading this book.
Fourteen books, each nearly a thousand pages, probably a million words. And now this is done.
I am no state to write a review, maybe someday later when I am less emotional. Not now, certainly not now. ( )

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.
