Hardcore scifi fan from a galaxy far far away.
I have lived with this series my entire adult life! I fear that the series is finally coming to an end. It is difficult to believe such magnificence can come to an end.
The 'beginning of the end' prologue builds on the excellence and more than wets your appetite for more.
(There will need to be an epilogue the length of another book to wrap up all the loose ends)
I have waited so very long for the conclusion to this series, and this Prologue is a small taste to what an ending it will be. This small segment held me spellbound, not wanting it to end... but of course, it did. I am truly waiting for the book.
Brandon Sanderson has done justice to the last two books he has written in this series. Although his style is different, it is not so different then Jordan to stop the enriched story from continuing.
I recommend this series to all fantasy readers.
I've read and listened to this tale and have enjoyed it very much QUITE wordy but well crafted. The narration is top notch!
It is different and very richly crafted.
While not in this prologue I think my favorite character is Matt.
Have Michael Kramer and Kate Reading narrate other books!
I would give it 5 stars across the board but this prologue left me wanting more!
By Grace and Banners Fallen, as you know is a prologue to the final book in Wheel of Time. The good news is, this prequel will get you ready for the final book, the bad news is... it is so short in comparison to my 20 years of waiting!!
However!!!!! With the full book scheduled, tentatively, to come out in January, this is a good warm up to the final chapter of a legacy.
Me? ....... Capable of many moods, and enjoying a vast range of literature. Incapable of uploading a picture and realized none of the Avatars are ......appropriate. That pretty much "tells" it all.
I didn't listen to all of this. It was just not my cup of tea. But, it could be because I just read The Forgotten Garden and that is a HARD ACT TO FOLLOW. Will probably give it another try when the book comes out.
