Publisher's Summary

When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    "My fourth time and still it's wonderful"

    I really connect with the characters of this series like no other I've read. They feel almost real to me. Unlike Tolkien which is more fanciful.

    "Summer Read - Book 1 of 14"

    This is my first time listening to the Wot on Audible. Certain passages gave me goosebumps as I remembered them in the book. I almost cried when I heard RJ'S voice at the end of the recording discussing how he prefers listening to his finished books. I hope the world will come to realize his death was a great loss to the world of fantasy.

    "I liked this. I disagree with other comments "

    Some comments said this was like R R Martin's works. Not so. It captured my imagination and had a great storyline. I had to slow it down, because at normal speed there was too much content at once and it felt rushed.

    "Loved it!"

    Robert Jordan's characters are probably the best part of this book series. You can't really pick one that is your favorite.
