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.
The book which launched a fantasy legend.
“Robert Jordan has created a fantasy world as tangible and credible as history. He has a fine eye for detail and a vivid sense of drama.” Morgan Llewelyn
“Robert Jordan’s The Eye of the World proves that there’s still plenty of life in the ancient tradition of epic fantasy. Jordan has a powerful vision of good and evil– but what strikes me as most pleasurable about The Eye of the World is all the fascinating people moving through a rich and interesting world.” Orson Scott Card
