Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

Synopsis:

A legend for our time--a legend of a world where evils long thought only fantasies appear in daylight, bringing death and ruin with them. Here is a legend of good and evil that captures the hearts of its readers, a legend that embodies greatness--the legend that is The Eye of the World.

About the Author

Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina. He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross with bronze oak leaf cluster, the Bronze Star with "V" and bronze oak leaf cluster, and two Vietnamese Gallantry Crosses with palm. A history buff, he has also written dance and theater criticism and enjoyed the outdoor sports of hunting, fishing, and sailing, and the indoor sports of poker, chess, pool, and pipe collecting.
Robert Jordan began writing in 1977 and went on to write The Wheel of Time®, one of the most important and best selling series in the history of fantasy publishing with over 14 million copies sold in North America, and countless more sold abroad.
Robert Jordan died on September 16, 2007, after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.

Carlos, September 26, 2012 (view all comments by Carlos)
This is the beginning of the epic fantasy series "The wheel of time" by Robert Jordan. The feeling of these books is more Tolkienesque than G. R. R. Martin, but they also have a feel and style all their own. In this first book the characters are beginning to develop and the lay of the land is being set up. The series was just completed posthumously so you can go straight through. It's a lot of fun to read, and highly recommended if you're looking for some great fantasy writing to disappear into.
