First published in 1990, Robert Jordan began an epic series called The Wheel of Time. For the next seventeen years, readers experienced eleven books of rich and expansive storytelling. However, on September 16th, 2007, Robert Jordan passed away due to cardiac amyloidosis. His legacy is carried on by Brandon Sanderson, a fellow fantasy author and Wheel of Time fan. With the help of Harriet Rigney, Robert Jordan's wife and editor, Mr. Sanderson continues a journey over twenty years in the making.
All manner of characters populate the vast world of the series. With fourteen books and a prequel, The Wheel of Time series contains thousands of characters, from Aes Sedai, Warders, and nobility, to humble farmers and maids, from powerful warriors to those sworn to peace in all they do.
The Eye of the World is the first book in The Wheel of Time series. It was published by Tor Books and released on January 15, 1990. It is 814 pages long.

The Eye of the World is unique in the series because its prologue, "Dragonmount", is set in the Age of Legends, roughly three millennia prior to the events which comprise the remainder of the series, rather than giving an overview of a large number of characters in the time period in which the novel is set as with the other novels. The prologue introduces Lews Therin Telamon, the Dragon, victorious commander of the forces of Light in the war against Shai'tan, the Dark One. His victory was not without cost, however; as a result of the tainting of saidin, - the male half of the True Source - which was the Dark One's final act before being imprisoned, Lews Therin has gone insane and murdered his family. He is confronted by Ishamael, one of the Dark One's chief lieutenants, who restores his sanity. Faced with the magnitude of his crimes, Lews Therin commits suicide, creating Dragonmount. (more...)
