Description

Soon to be an original series starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!

The first novel in Robert Jordan's #1 New York Times bestselling epic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time®.


The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

When The Two Rivers is attacked by Trollocs--a savage tribe of half-men, half-beasts--five villagers flee that night into a world they barely imagined, with new dangers waiting in the shadows and in the light.

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters. The last six books in series were all instant #1 New York Times bestsellers, and The Eye of the World was named one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read.

  • Must Read for High Fantasy fans but some complaints

    Just finished the book for the first time, and the world the Jordan has created is massive with tons of lore and unique, interesting characters. Although it’s not a critique on the book, there’s so much knowledge that I had a hard time wrapping my head around everything. However, I like the world so much that I’m not opposed to rereading it after I get further into the series. Most of the book is told from one characters perspective so some of the supporting casts character development was left out. The pacing can be a jarring to the point where it gets confusing as to how much time passes, and I feel like I’m missing some of the gradual character growth that could be there considering the length of the book.
  • Starts slow

    And I mean slowwww I have tried getting into this daunting series for maybe 5 years—it never seemed to hold my attention— if only I would have made to chapter 4 or 5 Before now. Don’t do what I did, stick with it till at least chapter 6 and see if you can go a day without checking in.
  • Great book series worth reading for sure!!!

    Kind of expensive for the story you get. This is the first time Ive ever read Robert Jordan, (2019) and it is definitely dated. The plot starts out very slowly and only has glimpses of good story telling, in addition the writing can be very confusing and unclear Overall I wish I had purchased another book. But on the other hand I read the entire thing, and also read the next book in the series. Can definitely say the next book has a similar story line, so can’t recommend that either

    I had only just started reading high fantasy novels but this one takes the cake! Robert Jordan’s world building is unlike any other. I can’t wait to read the rest of the books.

    Might even top Game of Thrones and LoTR; it’s hard to believe I discovered it so late. I just finished the series and wow - incredible. Reading it all again immediately. 😍
