As with previous volumes in the Wheel of Time® series, Macmillan is making the prologue for Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson’s Towers of Midnight available for purchase today, more than a month before the hardcover is released on November 2, 2010.
In the prologue, titled “Distinctions,” Lan Mandragoran rides on toward death; Perrin Aybara, Lord Goldeneyes, has a disturbing dream; Galad leads the Whitecloaks into harm’s way; one who has left humanity behind creeps through the Blight; and the Blight border faces invasion. The threads of the Pattern converge as The Last Battle nears and those who once thought themselves victorious find themselves ever deeper in shadow....
“Distinctions” will be available for $2.99 as either an ebook or an audio download from Audible. You can buy the ebook now, and it's compatible with nearly all e-reading devices, including the Sony Reader and the Kindle.
(For those who have already read the prologue, we ask that you refrain from posting spoilers here. Instead, hop on over to the open spoiler thread here. Thanks!)
