I think even its most ardent fans would agree that the series wandered away from where it really need to be for quite some time… but it’s still been an incredible journey that has had a special place in my heart for around 20 years. And the most recent 3 books (Knife of Dreams, the last one Jordan wrote himself, and The Gathering Storm and The Towers of Midnight, by Brandon Sanderson), have been, at least in my opinion, a definite return to form.
These characters have been close to my heart for over half of my life. I’m thrilled to finally see their truly epic tale come to an end.
(The final book, A Memory of Light, comes out in January.)
