Gathering Storm
Gathering Storm | Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson
26 posts | 52 read | 15 to read
Now in development for TV!Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time(R) 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.TV series update: "Sony will produce along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce. Judkins previously worked on shows such as ABC's "Agents of SHIELD," the Netflix series "Hemlock Grove," and the NBC series "Chuck." Red Eagle partners Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will executive produce along with Radar's Ted Field and Mike Weber. Darren Lemke will also executive produce, with Jordan's widow Harriet McDougal serving as consulting producer." --VarietyThe Wheel of Time(R)New Spring: The Novel#1 The Eye of the World#2 The Great Hunt#3 The Dragon Reborn#4 The Shadow Rising#5 The Fires of Heaven#6 Lord of Chaos#7 A Crown of Swords#8 The Path of Daggers#9 Winter's Heart#10 Crossroads of Twilight#11 Knife of DreamsBy Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson#12 The Gathering Storm#13 Towers of Midnight#14 A Memory of LightBy Robert Jordan and Teresa PattersonThe World of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of TimeBy Robert Jordan, Harriet McDougal, Alan Romanczuk, and Maria SimonsThe Wheel of Time CompanionBy Robert Jordan and Amy RomanczukPatterns of the Wheel: Coloring Art Based on Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time

Sometimes a leap of faith is all we have! Oddly enough, I didn‘t feel like I was cheating death by jumping from a plane. Perhaps I‘m too trusting 😅

It‘s a chilly 44° here in Florida and Daisy and I are snuggled up in bed with the next WoT book! I know temperature probably doesn‘t seem that cold to some of y‘all, but I‘m freezing! ?? Very thankful for my electric blanket right now! #DogsofLitsy

Look what I found for $0.50 at the Salvation Army! I plan on reading the whole series next year so I have been slowly finding each one used. I couldn't believe this huge hardback book only cost me the change in my wallet.

This was the first book written by Sanderson after Jordan‘s passing and I was wary about how different the series might suddenly seem. But I still enjoyed this book and loved some of the developments and resolutions in this installment. We are racing towards the final battle with only two more books left to read and these characters have come so far and changed so much.

jfalkens @JoScho one if the colors in my library 😊 there's also a darker accent wall in my library. Our bedroom and living room are also blue, different blues then in my library but the same blue in both of those two lol our living room curtains are also blue and a lot of my clothes. Can you tell we both love blue? 😂 1y

Up next is book 12!!

knittedgnome You rock! I'm still barely reading book 2. Lol! Not that I don't love it. 1y
jfalkens @knittedgnome you got this! It's ok tho everyone reads at different paces, as long as your having fun thats all that matters 😊 I took 1 month to read one of them, took a break from reading, busy, etc. but I still loved that book. 1y
jfalkens @knittedgnome you do have more than one book listed as currently reading too. That plays into it when your not constantly reading the same book every time you sit down to read, of course it's going to take longer. 1y

knittedgnome @jfalkens you would think I would learn! Lol! Nope. Ebooks are all from the library so I stress out reading them. Going to go back to my print books during the day law. 1y
jfalkens @knittedgnome lol as long as you have fun that's all that matters, stressing is no fun. 1y
knittedgnome I keep telling myself to just read what I want and that the books can be borrowed again! Doesn't help that Gibson and I decided to re read game of thrones. 1y
jfalkens @knittedgnome there you go! Lol I've heard that's a big series too! 1y

Well, this was serendipitous. I'm almost finished with book 11 in the Wheel of Time series, and my local thrift shop had books 12, 13, and 14 just sitting there. All for $3. It's like someone dropped them off just for me 😂

Bk12 Of #TheWheelOfTimeXmasReread is done.God knows I‘ve got nothing else to do but read, it‘s the only happiness I have.This is the first Brandon Sanderson written volume in the series, on a reread it‘s not really as bad as I remember(though I still would‘ve loved Jordan‘s version)several plot points were pulled together in this, the division in the White Tower,the voice of Lews Therin in Rands mind & the Black Ajah.#thewheelweavesasthewheelwills

The name of Bk12 Of #TheWheelOfTimeXmasReread is certainly appropriate to my life at the moment. Oh well, I‘m determined to pick myself back up & move on. After a long night without sleep, I‘m trying sliced mandarin & fresh mint in my infuser water bottle & a Mother‘s Little Helper tea from Davids Tea (hint @LeahBergen I‘ve run out!) Here‘s to better days ahead🤞❤️🧡💜💚💙

scripturient I‘m glad you‘re picking yourself up. Hope things will improve soon! 😘 2y

Lizpixie @DrJAdMerricksson Thankyou for your kind words, the pendant is from a #theyachronicles box for the release of Tower Of Dawn by Sarah J Maas. It‘s says “You must enter where you fear to tread” 2y
LeahBergen @Lizpixie Aww, no rush. Just get yourself happy and feeling better again, soon. 😘😘 And don‘t bother sending vegemite - it‘s too heavy to post and I can get it here. You could send me some of that T2 tea to try, though! It would be light and easier/cheaper to post. Haha! Big hugs. 💕💕 2y

Starting(with a heavy heart)Bk12 of #TheWheelOfTimeXmasReread Even if it‘s still a great book,plus a lot of story threads are pulled into place,Sanderson‘s style is just so different from Jordan‘s.He may have the world building & characters already fleshed out for him,but his interpretation of those characters is,I can‘t describe it,they just don‘t have the gravitas of the earlier books.But I love the series enough to persevere.Tai‘shar Jordan.

"You _always_ have a choice. Maybe you can't pick where you are forced to go, but you still have a choice... The choice isn't always about _what_ you do, son, but _why_ you do it."
"You may not have a choice about which duties are given you... but you can choose _why_ you fulfill them."

I love the convergence in my reading between these quotes and a similar theme threaded throughout the LOTR trilogy. #LOTRchapteraday

This was excellent. I set it down for too long in the middle, so I'm having a hard time accurately evaluating the book as a whole, but I'm definitely basking in the glow of the last third of the book! I loved the developments in Egwene's storyline--SUCH a fantastic, strong female character.

This marks one more book completed for my "finish those series" goal! I have two more books left in this series, and hope to finish by the end of the year.

After that LOTR-post binge, I thought I'd diversify my posting a bit... with a note on another epic fantasy series I'm in the middle of... 😜 I'm nearing the end of volume 12, and the last couple hundred pages have drawn me in again because of how much awesome Egwene material there is. Seriously, Egwene is my fave. Strong, wise, powerful, and undefined by any man (as well as unwilling to let any men get in her way!). And Rand is breaking my heart.

Cinfhen OMG! @minkyb can you imagine the #PageCountPhobia 2y
OSChamberlain @Cinfhen I‘ve never had that phobia. Big page counts=aphrodisiac for me 🤤 2y

BarbaraJean @Cinfhen Bahahaha!! Then this is not the series for you! 14 books, each around 700 pages long. 😱 2y

I had hoped there would be less breast-related arm-crossing in this volume, with Brandon Sanderson's influence/writing/compiling... but here we go again. 🙄

BarbaraJean @Moray_Reads Seriously! It's not as if it needs to be specified! This is one of my biggest pet peeves in this series. 2y

I cried several times throughout. In pride at the strong woman Egwene has become, and in sorrow at what has become of the young and innocent Rand from Emond's Field.
