So, the date has finally been set, in 11 months time we will finally have the ending to the Wheel of Time series. Myself I'm giddy like a schoolgirl at the prospect of finally getting to read the end of this series. However a lot of people are already whining about it being almost a full year away. I don't get that, I would much rather have it take an extra month or three and get a perfect ending than having it rushed and getting a subpar ending filled with mistakes and inconsistencies from lack of editing/proofreading.
So, what are your reactions on this?
Also, to give some more substance to this thread, I think it's time we get some good book recommendations again. I'll start off with some books by Brandon Sanderson that I picked up after reading the previous WoT book:
Mistborn trilogy. A wonderful series about an orphaned girl trying to topple the oppressive regime of the Lord Ruler (silly name I know) and eventually save the world from destruction. An unique (to my knowledge) magic system based on burning alloys of metal to manipulate the world around you (steel to push at objects, iron to pull etc). Well worth a read, I finished all 3 books in about 2 days each I was so engrossed.
The Stormlight Archive: Book 1, The Way of Kings. A series he has just started, it spans a massive world with a deep and intricate plot, combined with a great system of magic (this guy has a knack for cool ways to use magic). All the protagonists have their own agendas and goals, yet most work for the same thing: save the world from the Voidbringers, and ancient evil that many fear is about to return and destroy the world of man. Also a great read, though I might suggest waiting until book 2 is released (sometime after WoT I guess) so the wait won't be so long and painful.
Now share your recommendations.
