Life in Emond's Field has been pretty boring for Rand Al'Thor and his friends until a strange young woman arrives in their village. Moraine is an Aes Sedai, a magician with the ability to wield the One Power, and she brings warnings of a terrible evil awakening in the world. That very night, the village is attacked by bloodthirsty Trollocs - a fearsome tribe of beast-men thought to be no more than myth. As Emond's Field burns, Moraine and her warrior-guardian help Rand and his companions to escape. But it is only the beginning of their troubles. For Moraine believes Rand Al'Thor is the Dragon Reborn, and that he is fated to unite the world against the rising darkness and lead the fight against a being so powerful and evil it is known simply as the Dark One. Part One of the opening volume to Robert Jordan's classic Wheel of Time series, The Eye of the World continues with TO THE BLIGHT, also available in March 2003.

This is a great introduction to the Wheel Of Time Series, one of the best books in the series.
It's easy to get involved in world of the story and the characters, as you follow the their development and maturity.

The first in an excellent series by Robert Jordan. Although some of the books towards the end of the series can get a little bogged down, this first novel tells the first part of a very wide-ranging story and sets up all of the major characters from Emond's Field with flair and a great eye for detail.

I rate this series better than your average fantasy saga for two main reasons: the complexity of the characters as they mature and handle different situations, and Jordan's ability to gradually extend the scope of the story, the country and the characters to encompass more and more of the world he has created while still maintaining interest by advancing progress in the lives of the main characters. And of course he still includes all of the magic of a good fantasy for you to lose yourself in.

I rate this series, and this first installment of it, very highly. It's one that you will enjoy reading again and again.
