Cover Synopsis
"The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend, Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long gone when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy when the world and Time themselves hang in the balance, a wind rises in the mountains of mist...and Rand al'Thor is cold. Though the spring festival of Bel Tine comes tomorrow, it is a year without spring, a year when the green things fail and hope is dying.  It is a year of strangers; of a lady; and a gleeman with his tales of heroes; and a peddler with news of the present-of war with Ghealdan, far away, and of the rising of a false Dragon-the savior whose coming, foretold and dreaded, will bring a new Breaking to the World.  But the worst strangers are the monsters Rand thought only legend--the bestial Trollocs, and the horrifying Halfmen, whose eyeless gaze is fear.  They want a boy on the brink of manhood, born within a certain span of months. They want Rand himself, or his burly, deliberate friend Perrin, or the prankster Mat.  It is a world where nothings is what it seems. Not Nynaeve, the village wisdom, who can Read the Wind. Not Moiraine, the lady from outside, whose beauty hides a terrifying identity and a Power that seemed only yesterday to be the stuff of Legend. Not the lady's companion, Lan, whose chameleon cloak is stranger than the fluttering, multihued garment that proclaims the gleeman's trade of old Thom Merrilin. And not Egwene, the innkeeper's dark-haired daughter, caught between childhood and womanhood, between love of Rand and determination to become all that her destiny would make her.  The villagers know only that Trollocs hunt them. They have no way of knowing that the Dark One, imprisoned by the Creator at the moment of creation, is stirring in Shayol Ghul.  It is a time for prophesies to be fulfilled. The Wheel of Time is weaving a Web in the Pattern of Ages, a web to entangle the World. It is a time when Time itself may die, when the Eye of the World may be blinded. What was, and what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow."

Cover Synopsis
"For centuries traveling gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of...  Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.  And it is stolen. Rand al'Thor, the farmboy who is thought to be the Dragon Reborn -- the leader long prophesied who will save the world, but in the saving destroy it; the saviour who will run mad and kill all those dearest to him -- refuses to accept his fate.  Even facing the dreaded Amyrlin, the leader of the Aes Sedai who may intend to "gentle" him, Rand fiercely denies his Power.  He will have none of it -- no matter what Myrddraal and Trollocs, Aes Sedai and dreams stand in his way.  But with the Horn another object is stolen: a dagger from the terrible ruins of Shadar Logoth.  Unless the dagger is recovered, Mat Cauthon's life will end. And Mat is Rand's oldest friend.  Unwillingly, distrusting everyone, Rand is drawn into the Hunt.  As Egwene, the innkeeper's lovely daughter, and Nynaeve, the young village Wisdom, set out for Tar Valon's White Tower, seat of the Aes Sedai, Rand and the ogier Loial, accompanied by Perrin Aybara, the Wolfbrother who was once a blacksmith, track the Horn and dagger through Shienar -- and ender a world stranger than time itself.  But Rand cannot escape his Power.  The Dark One is stirring in Shayol Ghul.  The Dark One wants the Horn.  The Dark One wants Rand.  At once a continuation of The Eye of the World and a novel complete in itself, The Great Hunt is written with all the warmth, excitement, and epic strength that distinguished the first volume of The Wheel of Time."

"The Dragon Reborn -- the leader long prophesied who will save the world, but in the saving destroy it; the savior who will run mad and kill all those dearest to him-is on the run from his destiny.  Able to touch the One Power, but unable to control it, and with no one to teach him how -- for no man has done it in three thousand years -- Rand al'Thor knows only that he must face the Dark One. But how?  Winter has stopped the war-almost-yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he?  Perrin Aybara is in pursuit with Moiraine Sedai, her Warder Lan, and Loial the Ogier. Bedeviled by dreams, Perrin is grappling with another deadly problem-how is he to escape the loss of his own humanity?  Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve are approaching Tar Valon, where Mat will be Healed--if he lives until they arrive. But who will tell the Amyrlin their news -- that the Black Ajah, long thought only a hideous rumor, is all to real?  They cannot know that in Tar Valon far worse awaits...  Ahead, for all of them, in the Heart of Stone, lies the next great test of the Dragon Reborn."

Cover Synopsis
"In the tenth book of The Wheel of Time, from the New York Times #1 bestselling author Robert Jordan, the world and the characters stand at a crossroads, and the world approaches twilight, when the power of the shadow grows stronger.  Fleeing from Ebou Dar with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, whom he is fated to marry, Mat Cauthon learns that he can neither keep her nor let her go, not in safety for either of them, for both the Shadow and the might of the Seanchan Empire are in deadly pursuit.  Perrin Aybara seeks to free his wife, Faile, a captive of the Shaido, but his only hope may be an alliance with the enemy.  Can he remain true to his friend Rand, and to himself?  For his love of Faile, Perrin is willing to sell his soul.  At Tar Valon, Egwene Al'Vere, the young Amyrlin of the rebel Aes Sedai, lays siege to the heart of Aes Sedai power, but she must win quickly, with as little bloodshed as possible, for unless the Aes Sedai are reunited, only the male Asha'man will remain to defend the world against the Dark One, and nothing can hold the Asha'man themselves back from total power except the Aes Sedai and a unified White Tower.  In Andor, Elayne Trakand fights for the Lion Throne that is hers by right, but enemies and Darkfriends surround her, plotting her destruction.  If she fails, Andor may fall to the Shadow, and the Dragon Reborn with it.  Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn himself, has cleansed the Dark One's taint from the male half of the True Source, and everything has changed. Yet nothing has, for only men who can channel believe that saidin is clean again, and a man who can channel is still hated and feared -- even one prophesied to save the world.  Now Rand must gamble again, with himself at stake, and he cannot be sure which of his allies are really enemies."

Cover Synopsis
"The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: all are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope.  But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off.  But his attempt to make a truce with the Seanchan is shadowed by treachery that may cost him everything.  Whatever the price, though, he must have that truce.  And he faces other dangers.  There are those among the Forsaken who will go to any length to see him dead -- and the Black Ajah is at his side.  Unbeknownst to Rand, Perrin has made his own truce with the Seanchan.  It is a deal made with the Dark One, in his eyes, but he will do whatever is needed to rescue his wife, Faile, and destroy the Shaido who captured her.  Among the Shaido, Faile works to free herself while hiding a secret that might give her freedom or cause her destruction.  And at a town called Malden, the Two Rivers longbow will be matched against Shaido spears.  Fleeing Ebou Dar through Seanchan-controlled Altara with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons while traveling with Valan Luca's Grand Traveling Show and Magnificent Display of Marvels and Wonders, Mat attempts to court the woman to whom he is half-married, knowing that she will complete that ceremony eventually, but Tuon cooly leads him on a merry chase as he learns that even a gift can have deep significance among the Seanchan Blood and what he thinks he knows of women is not enough to save him.  For reasons of her own, which she will not reveal until a time of her choosing, she has pledged not to escape, but Mat still sweats whenever there are Seanchan soldiers near.  Then he learns that Tuon herself is in deadly danger from those very soldiers.  To get her to safety, he must do what he hates worse than work.  In Caemlyn, Elayne fights to gain the Lion Throne while trying to avert what seems a certain civil war should she win the crown.  In the White Tower, Egwene struggles to undermine the sisters loyal to Elaida from within.  The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believes are fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes.  Even the White Tower itself is no longer a place of safety.  Now Rand, Perrin and Mat, Egwene and Elayne, Nynaeve and Lan, and even Loial must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph."

Cover Synopsis
"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, was chosen by Jordan's editor -- his wife, Harriet McDougal -- to complete the final book. The scope and size of the volume was such that it could not be contained in a single book, and so Tor proudly presents The Gathering Storm as the first of three novels that will cover the outline left by Robert Jordan, chronicling Tarmon Gai'don and Rand al'Thor's final confrontation with the Dark One.  This short sequence will complete the struggle against the Shadow, bringing to a close a journey begun almost twenty years ago and marking the conclusion of the Wheel of Time, the preeminent fantasy epic of our era.

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

Cover Synopsis
"The Last Battle has started.  The seals on the Dark One's prison are crumbling.  The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight.  The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age.  Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership.  All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck.  To prevail, he must seek answers in Tel'aran'rhiod and find a way -- at long last -- to master the wolf within him or lose himself to it forever.  Meanwhile, Matrim Cauthon prepares for the most difficult challenge of his life.  The creatures beyond the stone gateways -- the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn -- have confused him, taunted him, and left him hanged, his memory stuffed with bits and pieces of other men's lives.  He had hoped that his last confrontation with them would be the end of it, but the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills.  The time is coming when he will again have to dance with the Snakes and the Foxes, playing a game that cannot be won.  The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost.  This latest novel of Robert Jordan's #1 New York Times bestselling series -- the second based on materials he left behind when he died in 2007 -- brings dramatic and compelling developments to many threads in the Pattern.  The end draws near.  Dovie'andi se tovya sagain.  It's time to toss the dice."

"Since 1990, when Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, readers have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over forty million copies in over thirty languages.  When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written.  But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.  With The Gathering Storm (Book 12) and Towers of Midnight (Book 13) behind him, both of which were # 1 New York Times hardcover bestsellers, Sanderson now re-creates the vision that Robert Jordan left behind.  Edited by Jordan's widow, who edited all of Jordan's books, A Memory of Light will delight, enthrall, and deeply satisfy all of Jordan's legions of readers.

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass.  What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.  Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time."

"For three days battle has raged in the snow around the great city of Tar Valon.  In the city, a Fortelling of the future is uttered.  On the slopes of Dragonmount, the immense mountain that looms over the city, is born an infant prophesied to change the world.  That child must be found before the forces of the Shadow have an opportunity to kill him.  Moiraine Damodred, a young Accepted soon to be raised to Aes Sedai, and Lan Mandragoran, a soldier fighting in the battle, are set on paths that will bind their lives together.  But those paths are filled with complications and dangers, for Moiraine, of the Royal House of Cairhien, whose king has just died, and Lan, considered the uncrowned king of a nation long dead, find their lives threatened by the plots of those seeking power. New Spring, the novella first published in Legends, related some of these events, in compressed form; New Spring: The Novel tells the whole story."
