Book Description

Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, readers have been anticipating the finale of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over forty million copies in over thirty languages.

The wait will soon be over. The fourteenth and final volume, A Memory of Light, will be available in hardcover and audiobook on January 8, 2013.

However, you can read the prologue, “By Grace and Banners Fallen,” before the book’s official release date. The prologue will be available in both electronic text and digital audio formats in October 2012.

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass.
What was, what will be, and what is,
May yet fall under the Shadow.

Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.


At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, another taste of the end. September 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very exciting to have another snippet to read for the final book. A few of the burning questions from the previous books were answered and stuff happened! Loved Jordan but Sanderson is getting things done and as a 20 year Jordan fan I appreciate his bringing this to a conclusion!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! October 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the prologue of the fourteenth book in an epic fantasy saga. You're not likely to read it without reading and liking the previous thirteen books, so this review is just an excuse to spread my excitement.

Of course the prologue was amazing - it had pretty much everything you could ask for. The plot is advanced, a few questions from previous books are answered, and we see how the whole world is preparing for the Last Battle, from the Chosen to the protagonists to simple soldiers and citizens. There are heroic battles that bring out the best in people, there's a sympathetic point of view from a character we've only seen being utterly evil, there are secondary characters preparing to fulfill prophecies made a long time ago. There are schemes and surprises. And there is Talmanes of the Band of the Red Hand, who I'm now in love with.

Waiting for January 8, 2013 was hard, but it just got a lot harder.

IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN MENTIONED somewhere that this Prologue is included in the final BOOK. Money wasted to buy this if you plan to buy the final wheel of time book.

Content is as great as ever though!!!!

2 days after getting this I got A MEMORY OF LIGHT which has all of this book in it. It's my own fault for not paying better attention to what I was getting.

Now that the full book is out, you don't need to buy this prologue, but it was a great primer before it came out!

5.0 out of 5 stars but I am amazed at the marvelous job Brandon Sanderson did of writing...
This is just the Prologue to A Memory of Light, but I am amazed at the marvelous job Brandon Sanderson did of writing the last three books from Jordan's notes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected.
Up to nearly the end it has been a great story, I am sorry to say that the last of it was a mighty let down (my opinion) but by all means form your own. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful

1.0 out of 5 stars don't buy it
Do not buy this its pointless. Read the book its very good.
This Prologue is just a bad way to try to make some extra cash from a finished series.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read while waiting for the full release.
I have been reading this saga since the early 90's and was eagerly awaiting the final installment when I found this. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Prologue is also in "A Memory of Light"
Don't waste your money. If you buy "A memory of Light" you get the prologue. This is a duplicate.
But.. it is well written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made waiting for the book worse
Waiting for the final books in this series was agonizing, especially with how well they were written by Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordon

1.0 out of 5 stars Prologue.
Having already read The Memory of Light I accidently bought the prologue, so having not bothered to read it I can not really give it a rating.
