I had always heard it was going to be a 13 book series. I also watched a small thing that he had said on a TV network where he said that. I guess he is though, cause New Spring kinda makes it 13 books...

But yea, I can't wait for some action to start. I like the politics, but there's been too much of that, too little action. Not enough of anything actually happening. In all honesty, the 6th book was the last book that I actually found great. It was a refreshing change, but it continued in book 7, and has been like that since then... So I'm hoping the next book changes things.

Could be 13 if you include the prequel. But there are too many storylines, that need to be tied up. From what we've all learned, Jordan does like to go into great detail breaking down each political and wartime battles. As he said, there are 2 long running threads in this story that are going to be tied up.

Apparently, after Knife of Dreams, he's already been laying down foot notes or something for the 12th already...the man works quick lol. But he's taking some time off for a few months.

Then im hoping Tarmon Gaidon shall finally be here...which in my opinion could last for 2 books....nothing but straight solid action.

Ok...so, there was an interview posted at Dragonmount.com from Robert Jordan himself, who said that the series will be stopping at book 12.

He'll be wrapping everything up in the final book, even if that means the hardcover will be 1500 pages...yikes.

The first review is up...and reading it, I think the next edition may be just as incredibly amazing as the 5th book was. It sounds like a lot of loose ends are going to be tied off and lots of characters will lose their lifes. I can't wait, 2 more months Happy Dance

Knife Of Dreams Review!

There's going to be an ending... Jordan has said himself that the book after the new one (Knife of Dreams) is going to be the end. It's a 13 book series. It's not short, but it's a damn good read.

Hmm, about time we started reviving this thread again. However it has gone so much time I hardly remember KoD, however I remember that we finally got confirmation that [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Mazrim Taim is a Darkfriend and that [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Mat and Thom finally decided to go and rescue Moiraine from the Tower as we had foreseen ages ago.
