Probably one of my favorite series of all time. The writer (Robert Jordan) died before he finished it, but he had very good notes and a new writer is finishing the series.
The new book came out a few months ago and I am rereading the series again to refresh my memory.
INHO one of the best fantasy series of all times. It's get's a little tedious for a couple of books, but the new book is supposed to be great.
