BUY THE BOOK

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.

Praise for What the Storm Means: Prologue to the Gathering Storm

“The seventh volume of Jordan's best-selling high fantasy series carries on the tradition of colossal, dauntingly complex storytelling established by the previous entries. . . . Fans of the series will gobble down this generous addition.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Crown of Swords

“Jordan's talent for sustaining the difficult combination of suspense and resolution, so necessary in a multivolume series such as this one, is nothing short of remarkable.” —Library Journal on Lord of Chaos
