A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again.

As my re-read of the Wheel of Time series continues to chug along, I’m nearing the end of Lord of Chaos, which is considered one of the high-water marks for the series (though the first 3/4 of the book could use some serious Pacing 101 lessons) and my enthusiasm for the series continues its tumultuous roller coaster ride.

The short excerpt, which in includes the famous opening, and the journey of an eastward wind, is available on Tor.com. This is in addition to the portion of A Memory of Light‘s prologue, previously release by Tor.com. It’s so close we can taste it.
