**NO PLOT SPOILERS IN MY COMMENTS**
Like many readers, I began this series in 1990 with the publication of the first book, "Eye of the World". So it's been a looong wait for the final, and 14th book "A Memory of Light". I've wondered how all the many story lines and character conflicts in this marvelously complex fantasy world could be resolved.
For the most part, 2nd author Brandon Sanderson has done a excellent job of finalizing the series. But beware: this book, all 900 pages of it, is battle after battle after battle.
I love SciFi & fantasy novels, and I'm not particulary squeamish. But battle details, with all the carnage, slashing, bashing, blood and gore, is my LEAST favorite thing to read about.
Since this series is fundamentally about the fight between good & evil, I knew there would be battles; especially in this final book. It was just too much for me.
And I will admit, part of my disappointment in this book is saying goodbye to this wonderful world and beloved characters.
Of the three books that Sanderson completed for the late Robert Jordan, (The Gathering Storm, Towers of Midnight) this is my least favorite. I gave the other two books 5 stars: this book 3 1/2 stars.
When I re-read, I may bump up the rating. But that 2nd reading won't be happening for a long time.
