A Memory of Light is the name given to the fourteenth and final novel of The Wheel of Time. It was due for publication in late 2012, however Tor later announced that the final volume would be released on January 8, 2013. In the prologue, the armies of the Westlands assemble in preparation for Tarmon Gai'don, as do the forces of the Shadow. The Forsaken Demandred stages a raid on the city of Caemlyn, sending Trollocs to capture Aludra's Dragons, developed jointly by Matrim Cauthon, Queen Elayne Trakand and the Illuminator Aludra. Talmanes Delovinde and the Band of the Red Hand launch their own counterattack and successfully remove the Dragons out of the city, but Caemlyn is lost. The Light is bolstered by people coming from all over the world to fight, sensing the end of all things. The Shadow welcomes Mazrim Taim as a new Forsaken to their ranks in thanks for his service in turning many channelers to the Shadow. He has been given a new name by the Shadow, known only as M'Hael. Another of the Forsaken is present at the meeting, an ugly woman called Hessalam, known before as Graendal.
