As with the previous covers that were released for the ebooks, Tor Art Director Irene Gallo has done a write up
about the process behind creating this image. Be sure to check out the full article. Here's an excerpt:
Egwene’s coming into her own - as Amyrlin and as a force for the Light to be reckoned with, but also simply as an adult, fully-developed character - has been a long and sometimes tortuous progression that has spanned the entirety of the series, and, in my opinion, ultimately ranks second only to Rand's himself in its centrality to the series. Her triumph, at the moment depicted, is awesome not only because of how much ass she is kicking right then, but because it represents a fundamental turning point for her character - and, therefore, for Tarmon Gai'don itself.Wheel of Time eBook News and release scheduleTor Books plans to re-release each one of the Wheel of Time novels as ebooks according to the schedule below. Each will have new cover art, specially commissioned for the eBook format. Each will feature a different artist.
