Publisher's Summary

Epic fantasy legend and author of number one New York Times best-selling series The Wheel of Time, Robert Jordan's never-before published novel, Warrior of the Altaii.

Draw near and listen, or else time is at an end.

The watering holes of the Plain are drying up, the fearsome fanghorn grow more numerous, and bad omens abound. Wulfgar, a leader of the Altaii people, must contend with twin queens, warlords, prophets and magic in hopes of protecting his people and securing their future. Elspeth, a visitor from another world, holds the answers, but first Wulfgar must learn to ask the right questions.

But what if the knowledge that saves the Altaii will also destroy them?

An interesting read given the context.

Harriet McDougal, Robert Jordan’s editor and wife said she decided to publish this book so long after it was written because
of its fascinating foreshadowing of The Wheel of Time. This is certainly true in places and makes it worth reading if you are a Jordan fan. As a stand alone story it is satisfyingly self contained. A good thing considering the writer is dead and could not continue it if it wasn't. That said, it clearly was to be the first of several books so it does make one wonder if the plan is to publish this one and then see if there is demand for another writer to take on the story. Given the world building that was put into the book it would seem to be a waist not to get a Brandon Sanderson type to take over where Jordan left off.

Great addition to Jordans legacy

Well written and interesting. Has a lot of elements which was later integrated into the Wheel of Time which was fun to hear. Interesting battle strategies and cultural building. Recommended if you're a fan of the Wheel of Time.
