Enter the world of The Wheel of Time®, the genre-defining epic fantasy series by New York Times bestselling author Robert Jordan.
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.
Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.
The Eye of the World — 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.
The Great Hunt — Long thought only legend, the Horn of Valere is found, a mystical item able to raise the dead heroes of the ages. But then, everything changes when it gets stolen.
The Dragon Reborn — Winter has stopped the war—almost—yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he? In the Heart of the Stone lies the next great test of the Dragon reborn.
The Shadow Rising — The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind. Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn.
New Spring: The Novel — A prequel to the Wheel of Time series: In the city of Tar Valon, a Foretelling of the future is uttered. On the slopes of Dragonmount, the immense mountain that looms over the city, is born an infant prophesied to change the world. That child must be found before the forces of the Shadow have an opportunity to kill him.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
So I'm reviewing now after re-reading for the umpteenth time. I first read the series as the books were coming out, when i was still in grade school. I've read all the David Gemmel, Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss, George R Martin, JK Rowling, R.A. Salvatore, Kevin Hearne, Jim Butcher, etc etc. I read non-fantasy as well, for those concerned. I can say that the only 2 series have ever competed with The Wheel of Time for best high-magic epic fantasy. The Malazan Book of the Fallen, and the Stormlight Archives. This series makes the Kingkiller Chronicles feel hollow and small in scale. It makes A Song of Ice & Fire seem downright lazy. The story follows almost a shonen anime style of progression, with logical power scaling. The story foreshadows with intelligence in such a way that you almost NEED to go back and read it again after some time to put more pieces together. Robert Jordan had real military experience and his action sequences are beautiful. They dont feel like the hollywood-esque fights that other fantasy authors imagine in their heads. Sometimes he breaks down the weapons and the troops and the tactics in an a great way. Sometimes you have figure out what happened based on the traumatized reactions of a character dealing with shell-shock. The male-female dynamic is second to none. Women act like women, men act like men, and as different lands and cultures are explored, you learn how many things are subjective, but some are universal. And for those concerned, there is even some slight LGBT in there, albeit not in the "look at me, i'm making a social argument" sort of way, but rather in a way that feels extremely natural (as it should be). If you like reading at all, read this series until you join the rest of us in mourning the masterful wordsmith behind this legacy. And also endless respect for the love of his life, his editor and now widow, for getting up and finishing what he started when her world came tumbling down. This series inspired me as a child and I can safely say as an adult that it ages like a fine wine, without relying on nostalgia to make it great again.
