Synopsis

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.

A Memory of Light
January 21st, 2015
A very good, but perhaps not great series. The series starts out slow, but picks up speed as it goes along. It is really a bridge between classic fantasy like Tolkien and modern fantasy. Like Tolkien, Jordan sometimes gets bogged down in details. Also, it seems like the main characters waste a lot of time fighting their destinies. A good series, that gets better as it goes along.

A Memory of Light
December 31st, 2014
This was my second read through of the book and I enjoyed it just as much as the first time. Brandon entwined his vision with Roberts beautifully for an epic adventure. I was very pleased with the ending and can picture many stories in my minds eye of the various futures the great characters that came to life for me over the years.

An Intense and Worthy End
December 27th, 2014
Sanderson does fans a great service by bringing Jordan' complex and detailed series to a thrilling and satisfying conclusion. Wrapping up so many loose ends must have been no easy feat. This novel specifically is a grand battle of a larger scale than I've ever read. Breathtaking. Well done, very well done. Goodbye to a series I've been reading for nearly half my life!

A fantastic end to a great series
July 28th, 2014
After waiting so many years to reach the conclusion to this series, I am so pleased and relieved that the quality of the story can still make me lose myself in the pages. So many characters I will miss, but I am so glad to finally have answers to how things end. Well done!

Good, satisfying ending
May 29th, 2014
This was a good, satisfying ending to a series that became frustratingly slow by the later Jordan books. Sanderson managed to save the series and turn it around by his willingness to pick up the pace, tie off loose ends, and mute some of the more irritating personality quirks of the main characters. This is still in places to my mind a bit too long - the battles go on forever, and the setbacks for the heroes become almost too much. Since we know the heroes are in a tough spot, all of that verbiage after a while gets a bit tiresome. Nevertheless, Sanderson has provided a good ending to a series that had been out in the weeds for far too long.

A fitting end
May 3rd, 2014
After years of waiting to do so, I just read the whole series again. I'd remembered the main story lines but forgotten many little details. Of sell the books except the first, I consumed the last the fastest. Even with all battle details, what a great and compelling read. Sanderson did an amazing job, though I was shocked still some of the characters list along the way. And cried when they were lost. Very much a fitting end to the story... Though I still want more.

Exhausting! Maybe deliberately depriving myself of sleep while going through the more action-packed and emotionally charged third act of the book had more to do with it but I find that I can empathize with the characters better that way. The more exhausted I was, the more I found myself lamenting the fate of certain characters. I also loved seeing several minor characters return even for just one scene. As if to remind us that they all played a part in the epic. I'd rather think it was for us fans to properly bid these characters goodbye. In between these scenes of light are scenes of slaughter. It is war, after all. And this is why reading the book gets really exhausting: When it flies, it's really high but when it falls, it's really low. And because it is a book about war and Robert Jordan is a war historian, the book also gets into excruciating details when it comes to the battle scenes. Often times I find myself not bothering to visualize the battles and just skipping to the outcome. All in all, though, A Memory of Light is a fitting conclusion as any. I still love it despite my own misgivings. I have to thank Brandon Sanderson for taking on the herculean task of helping draw this series to a close. As for the series as a whole, I'm going to miss waiting for the next book, going through the speculations and theories, and coordinating with local bookstores to make sure members of our group get copies. I don't know if I'll ever be as committed to another fantasy book series as much as I was with The Wheel of Time. Heck, I only got as far as book six in the Sword of Truth series and I haven't even read Dance of Dragons yet.

It was a series I started as a teenager. I read this through high school, my travels overseas, and finished it now as a father with a career. R.I.P. Robert Jordan. Your stories will live forever.
