Editor’s Pick – Eye of the World

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan is the first book in the now concluded Wheel of Time series.
The Wheel of Time series is epic in its proportions, 15 books each averaging about 1,000 pages, and is simply fantastic.
The Eye of the World is the beginning of the long adventure three young men (Rand, Mat, and Perrin) will have.

The peaceful villagers of Edmond’s Field pay little heed to rumors of war in the western lands until a savage attack by troll-like minions of the Dark One forces three young men to confront a destiny which has its origins in the time known as The Breaking of the World. Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc. –This text refers to the Hardcover edition.


 

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, an 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.
