A beautifully-written and all-consuming fantasy epic series that throws you into a world of magic, adventure, and destiny. We start in a small region of the Westlands known as The Two Rivers, where farmers, blacksmiths, and innkeepers lead a simple and content life. When magic and monsters suddenly invade their land, a small group of young townspeople embark on a journey to turn legend into reality and fulfill the prophecy of the Dragon Reborn. I cannot recommend this series enough.— Colleen

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.
