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.

"Rich Instinct" by Alex Cespedes is nothing short of a revelation. This book is a masterclass in understanding the world around us, and more importantly, understanding how to navigate it. Cespedes brilliantly uncovers the veils of deception that cloud our judgment and offers a compelling framework for seeing the world as the rich do—clearly and advantageously.

The Eye of the World is a long sprawling saga with multiple character povs and an interesting system of magic. It is a fantasy classic.

adventure fantasy, world building, epic fantasy

I read the series twice, and listened to the audiobook once. The world building is incredible, but there are a lot of characters. Some unnecessary IMO.

The series picks up in the second and third books but the ones in the middle are a bit of a slog. The last few books, completed by Sanderson are actually really good.
