What the Storm Means: Prologue to the Gathering Storm

Wheel of Time

By Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

Tor Books

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. In the Prologue to The Gathering Storm, the first volume of the last trilogy of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time epic, 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.
 As with the previous three titles in the Wheel of Time series, this prologue from Robert Jordan’s The Gathering Storm, completed by Brandon Sanderson, is available for sale before the book’s official release date (October 27, 2009).  

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  • By Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

  • Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.

    Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.

    Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.
