Just over two years ago, fans of the Wheel of Time
fantasy book series mourned the death
of writer James Oliver Rigney Jr. — a.k.a. Robert Jordan. After much deliberation by Jordan's wife (who also edits the series), author Brandon Sanderson was chosen to finish the series
. Sanderson familiarized himself with Jordan's notes and said that they would require three more books
, which he hopes to release with about a year between them. On October 27th, the first new Wheel of Time book since Jordan's death was released
, titled The Gathering Storm
. Early reviews for the book seem quite positive
, so here's a place to discuss it. Be warned: comments may contain spoilers.
