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.

    "It's better than I thought"

    Initially I thought the Wheel of Time series would be like the cliche fantasy book: lords and ladies, wise wizards, elves, so on. And I sorta dreaded it, but I needed a long series to listen to so I gave it a chance. I'm glad I did. No wizards, no elves. But an entirely different universe of people. And the word magic is never used. Still only start this book if you want to spend a loooong time in this place. I'm glad I did.

    Story
    "I enjoyed it."

    I originaly was told this book was basically a Tolkien Ripoff.
    This is not the case.
    Though you can see Influeces from fellow TOR and Sci-Fi authors like Frank Herbert, the story is original and I enjoyed it. The male and female narrators do a very good job. Fast story progression with a slower pace for character intro and development, perfect for a nice long series.

    "A timeless classic"

    I like that they had a male narrator for the men and a female for the women. A good variety of voices and enough inflection to keep the whole thing interesting.

    "Absolutely one of the best high fantasy series!!!"

    I read the entire 15 book series and it took me almost 2 years to finish and I loved every minute of it. Now I'm listening to it on audio book while I work and it is still an amazing story!!!! It's hilarious to hear the names the way they were suppose to be said vs what I heard in my head while reading HA! ENJOY

    "loved it"

    Robert Jordan's characters are fleshing out to be multi dimensional, the story weaving is terrific and the narrator does a great job.
    Can't wait to begin the next one.

    "Such a fantastic book!"

    It starts off kind of slow with character development, but it is so worth reading/listening on and on. I highly recommend this book! Can't wait to start the second in the series!

    "No choice. "

    You have no choice but to enter this world and feel like you are part of the story. I have both read and listened to this book and I loved both. Readers/actors do a great job with character voice which makes it easy to follow. I highly recommend this book.
