The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One’s prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unravelling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. Perrin Aybara is hunted by spectres from his past. To prevail, he must find a way to master the wolf within him or lose himself to it forever. Meanwhile, Matrim Cauthon prepares for the most difficult challenge of his life. The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost. The end draws near. It’s time to roll the dice.

I’ve not much to add, having not read Wheel of Time since the seventh book, but I’m sure fans are eager to find out more about the penultimate volume.

    @Patrick – I’d never have any content if I didn’t make stuff up!

    @Joseph – I plan to, once all the books are released. I enjoyed what I read, but got burnt out by reading too many in a row.
