Jacket image for Memory of Light, AI Just finished reading the fourteenth and final book in the epic Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. For fans of the series it is a worthy ending, The Last Battle is fought. I won't give any spoilers.
For those of you who haven't read Robert Jordan and want to get you teeth into some good fantasy, the first book is called The Eye of The World. That I am still reading these books after 12 years and 14 books is a testament to how enjoyable the are.

The Eye of the World (Wheel of Time, #1)
Life in Emond's Field has been pretty boring for Rand Al'Thor and his friends until a strange young woman arrives in their village. Moraine is an Aes Sedai, a magician with the ability to wield the One Power, and she brings warnings of a terrible evil awakening in the world. That very night, the village is attacked by bloodthirsty Trollocs - a fearsome tribe of beast-men thought to be no more than myth. As Emond's Field burns, Moraine and her warrior-guardian help Rand and his companions to escape. But it is only the beginning of their troubles. For Moraine believes Rand Al'Thor is the Dragon Reborn, and that he is fated to unite the world against the rising darkness and lead the fight against a being so powerful and evil it is known simply as the Dark One.
