| ''__The Gathering Storm__'' is a  [fantasy|Wikipedia:Fantasy_literature]  novel by American writers  [Robert Jordan|Wikipedia:Robert_Jordan]  and  [Brandon Sanderson|Wikipedia:Brandon_Sanderson] , the twelfth book in the series ''The Wheel of Time''.  It was incomplete when Jordan died on September 16, 2007, from  [cardiac amyloidosis|Wikipedia:Cardiac_amyloidosis] . His widow  [Harriet McDougal|Wikipedia:Harriet_McDougal]  and his publisher  [Tom Doherty|Wikipedia:Tom_Doherty]  chose  Sanderson to continue the book.\\
Jordan originally intended to finish the series in a single volume titled ''A Memory of Light''.
 However, when Sanderson began writing the book, it became clear that a single volume would be too large to print. The expected final book was split into three volumes: ''The Gathering Storm'', ''Towers of Midnight'', and ''A Memory of Light''. The books would be published a year apart with the first volume, ''The Gathering Storm'', published on October 27, 2009; a week earlier than originally announced.
