From the legendary and international bestselling Wheel of Time series whose journey began almost twenty years ago, The Eye of the World is the book that began it all””epic storytelling, fantastic adventure, and a sweeping cast of unforgettable characters.

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.

  1. I’d love to win a copy of Eye of the World. I lent my copy to a friend five years ago and never got it back. It was one of those books I reread all the time. Never heard of Mistborn but if this author is cowriting the new book I’d like to check it out.

  2. I’ve never read the Wheel of Time series, this would be perfect for me!

  3. This is one of the ‘big’ fantasy series that I have not read. I’d love to get a copy. I recently read Sanderson’s Warbreaker and loved the hell out of it.
