Overview

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. In the Prologue to The Gathering Storm, the first volume of the last trilogy of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time epic, Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward---wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders---his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.


As with the previous three titles in the Wheel of Time series, this prologue from Robert Jordan's The Gathering Storm, completed by Brandon Sanderson, is available for sale before the book's official release date (October 27, 2009).

This and chapter one have made me extremely excited for book 12. I only want to re read chapter one now that I have read this. Great job on Sanderson's part, picking up where Jordan left us in book 11. After reading both this and chapter 1 I can say with all confidence that Sanderson was a great choice to fill such large shoes. RIP RJ

I have just completed reading the first 11 books of this series in anticipation of the release of "The Gathering Storm". The first chapter of book 12 is intriguing. I will say, however, it will be an adjustment to get used to Sanderson's style. It differs quite a bit from Jordan. That's not a bad thing, just different. Like hearing a joke being told by one person and the punch line being told by another. As much as I hate to see this series come to an end, it will be nice to get one step closer to closure. I truly miss Robert Jordan (he was my all-time favorite fantasy writer), but after reading the first chapter from Mr. Sanderson, I am sure he will do the series proud.

Robert Jordan can't finish the series. As I understand it, he outlined the series, wrote books 1-11, then the prequel. He said he'd write until they put the nails in his coffin. A bit macabe but that's what happened. He died young. I don't envy Brandon Sanderson, he'll certainly have harsh critics. I'm reading book 12; I think he's done well. I want to finish the series but understand the changes and accept them. The ideas and plot are Jordan's.
