The End is near… for the Wheel of Time! I have been following this book series since middle school (which is a damned long time for those of you keeping track) but now the end is nigh. I, along with millions of other fans, have lived through years of waiting for book releases, the heartbreak at losing the original author to amyloidosis, and the relief at having the series finished by the capable hands of Brandon Sanderson. But soon I will have not just an ending, but the ending – penned by Robert Jordan himself before he passed away. I am on my way to the bookstore now, and, after the agonizingly long drive home from there (yes, it will be hard not to just sit and read it in the parking lot), I plan to disappear from the world until it is finished. Because spoilers are NOT acceptable. My apologies if blog posts continue to remain scarce for a while.
