Towers of Midnight, Book 13 of the Wheel of Time, Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

Dragonmount have posted a finished version of the cover to the next Wheel of Time book, due out (fingers crossed) this October in the US. It ties in with the blurb from the cover that in part says:

Matrim Cauthon prepares for the most difficult challenge of his life. The creatures beyond the stone gateways–the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn–have confused him, taunted him, and left him hanged, his memory stuffed with bits and pieces of other men’s lives. He had hoped that his last confrontation with them would be the end of it, but the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills. The time is coming when he will again have to dance with the Snakes and the Foxes, playing a game that cannot be won. The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost.

It irritated me that the whole Tower of Ghenjei resolution didn’t happen in volume 12 but I suppose it was necessary for the pacing of the novel (although not since the end of Tad Williams The Stone of Farewell have we been left hanging on so badly), so to see Thom with his gleeman’s cloak on appearing to unlock the entrance to the Tower with Matt and Noam/Jain Farstrider in attendance is pretty exciting.
