Robert Jordan’s series The Wheel of Time launched in 1990 and quickly became one of the most popular series in fantasy. But as the story continued year after year many fans wondered if the tale would ever be finished, especially after Jordan’s death in 2007. This month sees the release of A Memory of Light — the final volume — completed by author Brandon Sanderson, working off Jordan’s notes.
