The Wheel of Time is an epic fantasy series by Robert Jordan, the pen name of author James Oliver Rigney Jr. The first book, The Eye of the World, was published in 1990, followed by ten more volumes and a prequel over seventeen years. Sadly, Jordan passed away on 16 September 2007 after a long battle with cardiac amyloidosis. The remaining three books of the series were completed by the author and Wheel of Time fan, Brandon Sanderson, who has since become one of the most well-known authors in the genre. The final book, A Memory of Light was published 8 January 2013. Harriet Rigney, Jordan's widow and editor, was an integral part of enabling his legacy to be completed, later publishing the The Wheel of Time Companion in 2015.


The Wheel of Time is famous for its expansive and immersive world-building, long character arcs, extensive forshadowing details and overall richness of detail. It is a multiple New York Times bestselling series and has been translated into many languages

The Eye of the World is the first book in The Wheel of Time series. It was published by Tor Books and released on January 15, 1990. It is 814 pages long. Upon first publication, The Eye of the World consisted of one prologue and 53 chapters, with an additional prologue authored upon re-release. The Eye of the World is unique in the series because its prologue, "Dragonmount", is set in the Age of Legends, roughly three millennia prior to the events which comprise the remainder of the series, rather than giving an overview of a large number of characters in the time period in which the novel is set as with the other novels. The prologue introduces Lews Therin Telamon, the Dragon, victorious commander of the forces of Light in the war against Shai'tan, the Dark One. His victory was not without cost, however; as a result of the tainting of saidin, - the male half of the True Source - which was the Dark One's final act before being imprisoned, Lews Therin has gone insane and murdered his family. He is confronted by Ishamael, one of the Dark One's chief lieutenants, who restores his sanity. Faced with the magnitude of his crimes, Lews Therin commits suicide, creating Dragonmount. (more...)
