When Robert Jordan passed away in 2007, he left behind a mountain of compiled notes and an unfinished series. Long-time readers will be pleased to know that Sanderson, chosen by Jordan's wife to finish his work, has truly picked up the ball and ran with it. While most of the major characters are moved forward in their various subplots, the book centers around Egwene al'Vere and Rand al'Thor. Egwene, held prisoner in the White Tower, is trying to tie together the factions and end the Aes Sedai civil war, all the while knowing a Seanchan attack is imminent. Rand faces his own struggles in his effort to unite the nations before the Last Battle and negotiate a truce with the Seanchan. As the world teeters on the brink, and the Dragon Reborn grows increasingly frustrated, the darkness threatening the world seems to gain a foothold in his own heart. A superb installment of a beautiful story, this collaborative novel is the beginning of the end, with events accelerating toward Tarmon Gaidon at a breakneck pace.
