Book Review: Towers of Midnight (WoT #13) by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

Never once in Towers of Midnight does the story let you forget how close the Last Battle really is. After twelve books that covering roughly two years’ time, full of meanderings as the characters tried and failed to rally, it’s finally time. And I have no doubt it’s going to be epic.

No doubt, when it’s all said and done, it’ll even … More November Reading Reflections: The Fires of Heaven (WoT #5)
