Overview


The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass.
What was, what will be, and what is,
May let fall under the Shadow.

Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

In the Prologue to Towers of Midnight, book thirteen of The Wheel of Time, Lan Mandragoran rides on toward death; Perrin Aybara, Lord Goldeneyes, has a disturbing dream; Galad leads the Whitecloaks into harm’s way; one who has left humanity behind creeps through the Blight; and the Blight border faces invasion.

As with the previous four titles in The Wheel of Time series, this prologue from Robert Jordan’s Towers of Midnight, completed by Brandon Sanderson, is available for sale before the book’s official release date (November 2, 2010).

Biography

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. After graduating from The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics, he served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army, earning the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Bronze Star with "V", and two Vietnamese Crosses of Gallantry. A history buff, he also wrote dance and theater criticism. In September, 2007, Jordan died from complications of a rare blood disease. He was 58 years old.

    Time to toss the dice

    This prologue while short for a WOT book is packed full of great moments that seriously get the reader ready for the books release. We get POV's from Lan (his first in the main series), Perrin (wow i am so tiered of this guy), [Spoiler] (Holy crap), Padan Fain (if you thought he was creepy before watch out), Galad (not bad but starting to show his Trakand colors) and a new character who we probably wont see again (because the Last Battle just got started). If your like me and cant wait for the book to be released in November this is a great appetizer. The only draw back in it was Perrin, but I have lost all respect for that guy.

    Love the book...skip the preview

    BN should really warn people when they are just buying a few pages of a book. Or, they should give the person an option to apply the price to the real book. I read this book and loved it. However, got suckered into buying the preview, when I really wanted to buy the book.

    Rip off

    The entire book is included in Towers of Midnight. Don't waste your money, this is nothing but a grab for money, much as not releasing the ebook for several months. I am so disgusted that I wasted my money on this book that I will only read the others, not buy them.

    The Nook could not be more frustrating

    I would love to write a review of the prolouge, but sadly I cant. I paid for the prolouge and then downloaded thier silly little Nook because I have to to view it and Now I am unable to get my purchase onto the stupid thing. This could not be more frustrating. I will never use the nook again.

    A review, of a review...

    Hey Irish_descent....do you not understand the idea behind a Prologue? I'm guessing no since you think "At worst this should have been included in Towers of Midnight as an intro chapter at best, it should never have been written" What would be the point of blowing your wad all in the first chapter, my friend? This is what a prologue does, it teases you and offers only a peak of what is coming.

    Sick of this stupid series

    Kinda glad this author died so he can't milk this anymore. I personally lost interest when Dragon Reborn took like 2 years to be released. Have not read the series since and have interest to.

    Everyone write Harriet Jordan!

    good news, ToM WILL be out on nook. bad news? it won't be till around May! Harriet (Robert's wife) owns the rights to the book series since his passing. with Sanderson's insistence, she has shortened the original year wait to six months. that's still a while to wait! so everyone flood her inbox with mail requesting her to hurr up already!!

    Chapter 1 on Tor website as well

    I hadn't planned on buying this prologue, but then I saw that Tor has Chapter 1 up on their website, so I considered it worth it to be able to read both. Granted, I had a few dollars on a gift card. I don't know if I would have spent cash on it, so I'm glad I had the gift card. It was definitely worth it. I enjoyed the whole thing, but the final scene was the best. It was quite powerful. Chapter 1 on the Tor website wasn't a main character POV, but it did reveal an interesting new aspect to the Dragon.

    Can't wait for November! I take back every bad thing I ever said about this series during the slow years...

    Overpriced at 2.99

    This book is a poor attempt to scam more money from the public. At 45 pages, 10 are introduction, etc. Of the remaining 35, there is 1 actual minor addition to the story line and a lot of wasted words.

    At worst this should have been included in Towers of Midnight as an intro chapter at best, it should never have been written.

    With no story development, no character development and no meaning whatsoever, I am not sure why this was published, and I question both the publisher and the author in this decision. As much as I loved the series, this is not a fitting work to attach Robert Jordan's name or story.
