For twenty years, The Wheel of Time has enthralled more than forty million readers in over thirty-two languages. A Memory of Light brings this majestic fantasy creation to its richly satisfying conclusion.

'And it came to pass in those days, as it had come before and would come again, that the Dark lay heavy on the land and weighed down the hearts of men, and the green things failed, and hope died.' - From Charal Drianaan te Calamon, The Cycle of the Dragon.

In the Field of Merrilor the rulers of the nations gather to join behind Rand al'Thor, or to stop him from his plan to break the seals on the Dark One's prison - which may be a sign of his madness, or the last hope of humankind. Egwene, the Amyrlin Seat, leans toward the former. In Andor, the Trollocs seize Caemlyn.

In the wolf dream, Perrin Aybara battles Slayer.
Approaching Ebou Dar, Mat Cauthon plans to visit his wife Tuon, now Fortuona, Empress of the Seanchan.
All humanity is in peril - and the outcome will be decided in Shayol Ghul itself. The Wheel is turning, and the Age is coming to its end. The Last Battle will determine the fate of the world. . .

Working from notes and partials left by Robert Jordan when he died in 2007, and consulting with Jordan's widow, who edited all of Jordan's books, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson has recreated the vision Jordan left behind.

          I had "withdrawal wistfulness" after I'd finished. It was a story I still miss, weeks after I finished reading it.

            I always felt the original series started so well but tailed off halfway through so I avoided reading the last 3. Until Booktopia offered them at such a good price and I'm glad they did. These last 3 build beautifully to the climax of the last battle. The characters, goals, plots are crystal clear - but with a few surprises. Really a fitting tribute to one of the great long series. When the dust the last battle dies down you will feel completion.

            The final chapter

            Comments about A Memory of Light:

            It all comes down to this. After 13 previous books, the death of the original author and a story line that is highly complex, this final chapter is a little rushed. Even the 900 odd pages can't really convey the level of detail that readers of the Wheel of Time have come to expect. In saying that, the book delivers the end to a saga that at time was, at times, a little exhausting. The final battle is here and takes place from the very first page. There are the usual twists and turns and it does at times become difficult to work out just who is who. There is no glossary in this edition, which makes it difficult to keep track of the various characters and just what side they are on. You probably need to have read previous few books fairly recently before tackling this one. the pace is fast and furious and the story jumps between the various plots, sub plots and sub sub plots with rapid frequency. If the rest of the books moved at this pace then there would have been far fewer books. This story is engaging and energetic. The characters are entertaining, although many of the female characters are far too similar. All in all, this it is an epic achievement to read these books. The final book is worth reading and if nothing else will satisfy your curiosity.

                  At last the climactic ending to an engrossing series. Bittersweet. Couldn't put the book down, just had to read 'one more' chapter. Well written, would recommend the series to all lovers of fantasy.

                          This book drew me in at once. I laughed, I cried, I threw the book in frustration. I stayed up late just to 'get to the next chapter'. A fitting end to the saga, but now that it's finished, why can't there be more?

                          "The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience, and the . . . evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of the unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades, just as the experience of the First World War and its aftermath gave its imprint to J. R. R. Tolkien's work."--"The New York Times" on The Wheel of Time(R)

                          Brandon Sanderson

                          Robert Jordan

                          Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.

                          Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of TimeĀ®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.

                          Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.

                          Named as Robert Jordan's natural successor, Brandon Sanderson continued to write and complete the Wheel Of Time Series with the following books:
