Warrior of the Altaii now available

  • Robert Jordan’s first and last novel is now available. 

WARRIOR OF THE ALTAII, a stand-alone fantasy novel by Robert Jordan, is now available.


The novel is is published by Tor Books, the same publisher of Jordan’s U.S. Wheel of Time books.  The book is set in a unique fantasy world that is unrelated to the WoT universe except for some coincidental and thematic similarities. 


The book was originally announced in January 2019


Here’s the official plot description:



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?



Warrior of the Altaii was originally written in 1977 by a then-unpublished Robert Jordan. It went through an unusual process of being acquired by a publisher, only to quickly have the contract cancelled when Jordan asked for more money.  It continued to receive interest from publishers for a while until Robert Jordan decided to shelve the project in favor of developing his WoT books.  Harriet McDougal, RJ’s wife and editor, describes the story in great detail as part of the novel’s introduction. 


An exclusive edition of the book with additional interior color artwork is available from Barnes & Noble.


The book is available in print and ebook formats. In addition, an audiobook is available and is read by WoT audiobook reader Michael Kramer.
