Teaser Tuesday - A Memory of Light, by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


Over the weekend I finished The Kingdom of Gods by N.K. Jemisin, and was finally able to start A Memory of Light.  As some may know, every book in the series starts with the same passage - six sentences that signal the beginning of the new book and links it to all the others in the series.  For me personally, reading this first paragraph of the first chapter always gently eases me back into Jordan's world, and yet gives me chills at the same time. 

The Tease:
"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend.  Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again.  In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist.  The wind was not the beginning.  There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time.
But is was a beginning."
 -The Wheel of Time, Book 14: A Memory of Light,
by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson
