It will be very hard to 'ruin' it, he hasn't got where he is without being a half decent writer at least. But sure the book will be in his style, no matter how much he tries to match it to Jordan's, he will still have his touch on it. I just hope people realise this and accept that, the other alternative would have been no final book which I bet no one would have wanted.

I have read his Mistborn series. I think that he is an excellent author and I have no doubts that he will do an amazing job. Jordan wrote most of it himself, and his wife Harriet helped him at every stage. She is working closely now with Brandon. Theres not much room for error here. No, it will not be word for word how Jordan would have written it, though much of it will. However, I think the differences will be good ones. This guy is as big of a fan of the series as any of us. He won't let us down.
i read the final empire and warbreaker (its an ebook right now, go to brandonsanderson.com. he has it for free! but it comes out in 2009) and i got his other books for chrismas but like i said i think he'll do a great job and the ending should be awesome since robert jordan wrote that.
