Book reviews: The Gathering Storm/ Towers of Midnight
Since his death, two books have been released: The Gathering Storm and Towers of Midnight, both co-written by Brandon Sanderson, and I have to say that, while not reading any of Sanderson's past works, he has breathed some much-needed life into this series that has been around for decades.
I found both books (read them this weekend) to be fairly fast-paced, and both tied up loose ends that had been left untied for quite some time (Would Elayne find out what happened to her mother? What happened to Moiraine? Would Egwene finally retake the White Tower and become Amyrlin Seat?) without seeming to be rushed, which would be understandable as there's only one more book in the colossal series. I know that I, for one, look forward to reading the last book, known as A Memory of Light.
