I started reading the Wheel of Time series a few months ago after a friend lent me the first book. I loved the first one so being a quick reader I immediately brought the rest of the series. Unfortunately, though the author Robert Jordan died in September after battling a rare blood disease called amyloidosis without completing the twelfth and final book. His wife and editor has now chosen writer Brandon Sanderson to complete the series. He will work from draft notes left by Jordan as well as working closely with the editor. Whilst I am still only on book number five it will be interesting to see the outcome.
