The Gathering Storm is a fantasy novel by American writers Robert Jordan and 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 . His widow Harriet McDougal and his publisher 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. (Wikipedia)
