For the past year I've been reading The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. I'm now just starting book 12. With 2 books to go after this one I kinda feel like I don't want to finish . . . It has become my favorite fantasy series along with A Song of Ice and Fire, and of course Tolkien's work. Jordan's writing isn't as gritty as Martin's, and not as masterful as Tolkien's, but the world he created is immense and dense with detail. I feel like I've watched the characters grow up any other WOT fans on the board?
