The Gathering Storm, Book 12 of the Wheel of Time series. RM100 + at Kinokuniya. Cant wait to get my own copy :)
I am not a good writer, but i still wanna say a little bit about the story.
It is a story about 3 kampung boy who was destined to lead the world against the shadows. Each of them is like a pillar supporting a pyramid. If any of them die, the pyramid will fall, and so does the world will fall to the darkness. Even with them around, humanity has only a slightest chance at victory, for the situation is very critical, the forces of shadows is overwhelming, and the world is not yet prepared.
(The Dragon Reborn)
He is the reincarnation of a the mightiest leader of mankind during the Age of Wonders. The prophecy mentioned him as the saviour of the world against the shadows. He will defeat the Dark One, and destroy the world in doing so.
He is the most powerfull user of the One Power (magics) alive. Able to defeat an army of 40,000 strong in a single channeling. But even without the One Power, he was trained in the swordplay to a Swordmaster level. A very dangerous man, especially since his sanity is in questions.
He leads with iron will, almost a tyrant, something that he think is necessary or humanity have no chance at all.
This cheerfull, happy go lucky lad is probably the best general alive in the world. He died once, and came back alive with his memory filled with experiences of hundreds of generals who lived and died during the Warring States era.
In battle he rides atop his horse (named Pips), weilding his A'shandarei (a power wrought spear) accompanied by his unending streams of good luck that was his trademark. He is immune to the effect of the One Power and a very skilled fighter with either his spear of dagger, making him a very dangerous fighter.
He leads The Band of Red Hand, named after a legendary warband during the warring era. The Band never suffered any lost, and his followers loved him because of that. "It's time to toss the dice", the tagline of The Band associated to Mat's superbly good luck.
(The Wolf King)
A former Blacksmith, now a King. He is said to be the saviour after the world is destroyed by Rand in the last battle. He is a wolfbrother, able to communicate with the wolves and calls for their aid in battles. He goes to battle with his axe in hand. Cleaving and chopping like madness everything in his path. No special training in combat, his brute strength is what makes him a great fighter.
He leads by his charisma. Whatever he said, people will believe, and people will follow. Loved by all, his charisma is overwhelming even to the leader of another country to kneel before him.
