A Fire Within the Ways

A non-canon, deleted sequence from A Memory of Light featuring Perrin travelling through the Ways.

A Fire Within The Ways

A Fire Within the Ways is a sequence of chapters that were originally cut from A Memory of Light. They feature a story in which Perrin travels through the Ways and brings some of those story arcs to a more satisfying conclusion. It was written by Brandon Sanderson, based in part on notes from Robert Jordan.

This deleted sequence is not consider canon, primarily because the timeline and other plot elements don't match up with what was eventually published. You can read more about what Brandon said about this story on his website.
