The Gathering Storm Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson read online review & book description:

The Wheel of Time is now an original series on Prime Video, starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.

The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, looms. And mankind is not ready.

The final volume of the Wheel of Time, A Memory of Light, was partially written by Robert Jordan before his untimely passing in 2007. Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn books, and now Stormlight Archive, among others, was chosen by Jordan's editor--his wife, Harriet McDougal--to complete the final volume, later expanded to three books.

In this epic novel, Robert Jordan's international bestselling series begins its dramatic conclusion. 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.

Egwene al'Vere, the Amyrlin Seat of the rebel Aes Sedai, is a captive of the White Tower and subject to the whims of their tyrannical leader. As days tick toward the Seanchan attack she knows is imminent, Egwene works to hold together the disparate factions of Aes Sedai while providing leadership in the face of increasing uncertainty and despair. Her fight will prove the mettle of the Aes Sedai, and her conflict will decide the future of the White Tower--and possibly the world itself.

  • Wheel of Time gets back on track.

    By Scrub Kai
    After a couple books where very little happened, the plot starts to take off again. The writing is clearly a different style then Robert Jordan’s, but seems to go well with the tone of the series.
  • The student has become the teacher...

    By jtmplumber
    This is the most emotionally engaging book of the series and my favorite because of it. No disrespect to Robert Jordan but Brandon Sanderson via Harriet saved this series. He was not only the right pick to write these books but an inspired pick. Jordan would be proud. The end is nigh...I now start the towers of midnight but will not forget this book or what it meant to the series and what it meant to me.
  • Great Story

    Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson at their best.
  • Sanderson Picks Up The Story Without A Hitch

    By mvmcgee2112
    Brandon Sanderson had a daunting task when he took over the late Robert Jordan's epic Wheel of Time series. He has done a fantastic job of continuing the story. I'm not sure if it's his style or the fact that the story is ending, but this book moves at a much faster and more purposeful pace than many of its predecessors. He's done a fantastic job of keeping the imagery alive while also advancing the story. I think long-time fans of the series will appreciate its faster pace and the sheer amount of satisfying reveals and answered questions. The only criticisms I have are that it jumps around a little too often. Sometimes spending only one small chapter on one of the main characters before switching to another. Also, during these jumps the timelines of each character's story don't sync up as well as they have in past books. Even with these "flaws" though I still give it 5 stars because it's really a great addition to the saga. As the story is coming to its end, I'm bursting with anticipation to see how it all plays out. Yet, I'm also a bit sad knowing that it will end. Like a lot of fans I've been invested in this saga for almost 20 years! It's almost like saying goodbye to a dear dear friend.

    After all these books, finally, with gale force, the plot moves.
  • OMG

    By Liz1997
    What a build up to a climax! I can't wait to get my hands on the last book. I've been reading this series for years. I almost hate to see it end.
  • Worthy of its predecessors

    Brian Sanderson continues Robert Jordan's epic in grand style. His prose is more compact and his diction less varied, but for the better. Brian Sanderson could have attempted to mimic Jordan's voice, but the result would have been less well received. The pace is faster, due probably, to the drawing to a close of this epic. Unlike Jordan, Sanderson doesn't feel compelled to include characters that are now relegated to less important situations. He focuses on the four major characters; Rand, Mat, Perrin and Egwene. Gone is Jordan's propensity to use trivial characters to purposely confound the reader. The story is clearly presented, but the excitement and lovability of the story and its characters is intact. Some will say that this co-writing damages the epic, but I disagree. Sanderson himself a fan of these novels, by his own account, has been given a joyous burden and he is performing wonderfully. For those readers annoyed with certain characters I say to you buy and read this book. I think you will find them less annoying or even non-existent in this novel. Enjoy all the fluff without the fuss? A great read, straightforward and exciting. I would recommend this to anyone who has read the former novels even if they didn't like them.
  • Crashes iBooks

    By mogmios
    Strangely iBooks crashes on my iPad any time I try to load this book. Tried closing all apps, including iBooks, and rebooting the device and redownloading the book but it still happens. OS and iBooks are both the newest versions.
  • Good, but...

    By MikeH24
    ...I really wish Apple would stick with a universal price for these books. I mean, a dollar more or so for the new books would be fine and all, but the way they seem to make these book prices seems kind of random. A couple of books is $6.99, while others in the series are $7.99, 8.99, and $9.99! Other than that, these are great ports of even greater books! Please fix the prices!
  • Robert would be proud.

    By Atcae2
    The current author has done a remarkable job of trying to carry on Robert's work. At times I even have a hard time remembering that he isn't the one at a type writer.
