Damn Damn Damn

I just finished reading “Crossroads of Twilight” by Robert Jordan, the tenth book in his Wheel of Time series. Damn! This series is really good, and there aren’t anymore books to read yet. I’m having a hard time figuring out how large it will be by the time he’s finally done. At this point it would seem that it could easily reach 20 books. Massive.

Well there is one more book, “New Spring”, which came out in hardcover in January. That one is a prequel novel though. I still want to read it, but it takes place 20 years or so before “The Eye Of The World”. There was a lot of frustration from readers over Jordan’s release of this latest book, and I can understand. He’s left nearly every major character in a cliff hanger at the end of “Crossroads” and then he goes and releases a novel that doesn’t continue the story.

I’ll just have to be patient, but it’s difficult. It will very likely be a year before Robert Jordan releases another book. And it could be much longer.
