Purchased: The Eye of the World (The Wheel of Time Book 1)

“New fantasy, old fantasy, new for me, old for me, new for some..”

Brandon Sanderson is my favourite author, yup, he’s right at the TOP of the list. Needless to say I’ve been keeping my eye on the Wheel of Time series and his countdown to completion, even though I’ve never read the series!

I’ve been meaning to make a start on this for a while, however for most long fantasy series, I’m always a bit wary before picking up the first book. Questions race through my mind like: what is this book about? What if I don’t like the story, or the characters, or the theme..?

Good thing is that the Wheel of Time series is so acclaimed, and I’ve been itching to get my hands on the first book. Amazon currently has it on offer for £3.99, which is very fair. So yeah, it’s been ordered, and on it’s way to me. Really exited for this, and I hope my hopes are met!

This is the cover of the UK version, which is frankly boring. I prefer my fantasy books to have a bit of art to them, but I suppose I can live with it.

Author: Robert Jordan

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Age: Adult

Released: 10th December 1992 (UK version)

Blurb from Waterstones:

—————————–

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.
