For the last 10 years my best friend has been trying to get me to read The Wheel of Time series and while I do own most of the series I didn't take the plunge until last night when I picked up the graphic novel adaptation after borrowing it on a whim from the library.Was this review helpful?

The artwork in this volume was nothing short of fantastic. I loved the style the artists implemented. The colours were dark but they really popped off the pages. The artistry went hand in hand with the story was being told and I felt myself drawn even closer to the story because of them.
The story itself was great. While I haven't read the actual full length novel version I feel that this was a very good graphic novel adaptation. It was longer than I expected and I there was a lot more text in the story than I would usually find in an adaptation. I liked all the characters a lot and I'm really intrigued by the whole mythology of the story that was told. There was far more detail than I expected and I think that helped make the story all that much more successful.
I'm not a big high fantasy fan, mostly because I don't have that much reading experience of the genre under my belt but I really see what all the hype around this series is about. There's a lot going on within the pages of this graphic novel and it surprised me by sucking me into the world within the pages so completely. After reading this I am definitely going to be starting the novel version very soon and can't wait to read more of Robert Jordan's work. I also plan to continue reading the series of graphic novels that follow this one.
I highly recommend this to all Wheel of Time fans by Robert Jordan as well as to people who haven't read the books before, who, like me are curious to see if it's something they like. Plus if you're a lover of graphic novels like I am I suggest giving this one a try also because it's the whole package.
