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.

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.

Reviews

"Jordan has come to dominate the world Tolkien began to reveal....The battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience....The evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades."--"The New York Times" "Adventure and mystery and dark things that move in the night--a combination of Robin Hood and Stephen King that is hard to resist. Furthermore, Jordan makes the reader put down the book regretting the wait for the next title in the series."--"Milwaukee Journal Sentinel" "The Wheel of Time is a fantasy tale seldom equaled and still less often surpassed in English." --"Chicago Sun-Times" "Read by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer, who breathe life into this epic tale." --Patriot News "Michael Kramer sets this first book of a classic series on strong ground, with Kate Reading contributing to the narration.
