Reviews The epic finale of an epic series. An era is over. I was very skeptical of someone else finishing this fantasy masterpiece. I am wondering how much Robert Jordan is in there and what he had planned and what are decisions of Brandon Sanderson. When I forget that - which I do while reading - I was captivated by this book. 50% or more of it is taken up by the actual last battle. I am sure some people will cry out and say "that's too much". You would probably have said the "too little" if it was less than that. The book is a worthy final book. It wraps up most things and on the last 20% I just couldn't stop reading. Without wanting to spoil anything: yes some people had to die. Some people got to go like the heroes they are, some didn't. I loved the Forsaken endings. I loved the solutions to so many story lines ... there was one prophecy in particular that has been very long in coming and I was overjoyed to find out what it meant ... the book is great and kept me wanting more, knowing it is never going to come. After finishing the book I just could not sleep, realizing "Wheel of Time" was over, the last battle had happened. In the morning I woke up early and still could not stop thinking about the book. How often does that happen? To me: rarely! There were times I really didn't enjoy the series any more ... but this book jumped into my all-time-favorites list immediately. Go finish reading the series so you can read this one!
A fitting and satisfying conclusion to a lengthy series. It kept me excited throughout without overwhelming me with constant tension. To me it felt like a heartfelt goodbye to all of the characters, and without saying too much I'm pleased with how each arc concluded. For each of them I could say, "yes, this is right. This is how it was meant to be for this person." You should know what you're picking up with this book, and I don't think you'll be disappointed. The Last Battle is rendered stunningly, with enough perspective from the different points of view that you can really start to
feel the scope of it all. Plenty of surprises, plenty of oft-foretold destinies fulfilled in surprising and unsurprising ways. It's a rare thing to see the ending to a series with as much cultural weight as this one carries for many people. Some of us thought we'd never live to see this one, and many were worried that no ending could ever do the series justice. Speaking for only myself, I believe that this ending is true to the series as a whole and to the words and memory of Robert Jordan. I could not ask for anything more. This is, by itself, the single best volume of the entire series. As the capstone on the monument that is The Wheel of Time, it is the fulfillment of a very old promise that you won't regret waiting for.
The end of the Wheel of Time! It has certainly been a long time coming! Whenever people ask me to recommend The Wheel of Time I've always said it depends on how he (now Brandon Sanderson) ends it. I love all of the books, but it's a massive series and if it didn't end satisfactorily I wouldn't recommend the series. Well, having read the ending I can now say that I would heartily recommend the series -- though because of the length (14 books, and over 12,000 pages) I would only recommend it to people who like fantasy, or think they'll stick it out to the end. Once again I felt that Brandon Sanderson did a good job of writing the series. I was a little bothered still by the handling of Mat's character, but I never had any times where I was taken out of the story by wondering who had written this or that particular passage. The sections by Brandon Sanderson melded well into the sections written by Robert Jordan. As for the ending, it was worthy of the depth and breadth of the series. I missed a few minor points at the end, because it draws characters and plot threads from the whole series, but I was able to follow having only read the second to last book as preparation. And though I did notice that the pace was a little uneven -- it goes quite slowly through the final battles of the armies, and then rushes quickly through the final climax at Shayol Ghul -still it was a very satisfactory ending to the series. I'm sad to see the series end, but as a fan I was more than satisfied.
