Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spinethat spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

"A Memory of Light" by Robert Jordan/Brandon Sanderson

Publication date: January 8th, 2013
Publisher: Tor Books
Series: The Wheel of Time #14

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-two 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) andTowers 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.

Do I have to explain why I'm dying to get my hands on this book? Most of you will have said "No!!", but for the few people looking at this page with a big questionmark on their faces: The Wheel of Time is EPIC. It's a classic. And... this is the last book, the 14th, the ending of an amazing tale that will stay with me for a very long time.


  1. I'll be honest, I haven't read any of the Wheel of Time series. *hides* I have heard it is amazing though! Thanks for sharing, oh and new follower (Frodosco - GFC). ^.^ If you would like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday you can do so here. :)

    1. Oh my, you should definitely start reading it! It's amazing!
      Thanks for the follow! I couldn't help but notice your nickname is "biochemguy". I'm a Biochemistry student, you too?

  2. I stopped reading Wheel of Time around book six or seven. It's nice to see that there will be a conclusion to the series though. Please stop by my WoW!
