I have been a fan of the Wheel of Times series by Robert Jordan since 2000 when my co-worker Justin Preston introduced me to the first book. After a very long wait, book eleven of the series is now due out on October 11 (just 2 months away!). As soon as I can get my hands on the book, I'll be staying up til the wee hours of the night reading it until I can get the entire book finished. I'll give my critique on the book as soon as I finish up.
