Been quite a while since I read any part of the Wheel of Time. I believe that Mr. Sanderson is going to pull of a great ending based on this short story. The book did exactly what it is supposed to do: ramp up my interest in the series again and provide a summary within the body of the story.
(Perhaps Mr. Sanderson could help out George R.R. Martin, sorry I just couldn't resist)
I've lost count of the amount of times i have read and re-read and re-read all the books in this series. One would think I should know the books off by heart by now...but that's the great thing about it...there is always so much to remember that it never becomes boring when reading it over again.

Sanderson has kept the magic of this series going beautifully. Never once did it feel like I was reading from a different author. I am very impressed with his skills and was blown away by the 12th book.
