If your new to the Wheel of Time then your in for a long and winding road of reading and imagination. robert Jordan has done something that I've seen no other Author do and that is to create a multi-tiered Character list each with their own Story line and then woven these multiple stories into one long epic adventure. Most Epics span many years and even decades while Jordan's current eleven books span just barely three and a half years of time. Nearly each waking moment of the top three levels of characters is chronicled in his story.

Jordan begins his story by introducing you to the three main characters in a small village that's far enough away from anywhere to even be known yet the area known as the Two Rivers is widely known for their Tobac. The Two Rivers is within the Realm of Andor yet the Andorian Tax men have left the Two Rivers alone for Decades. Rand al'Thor, Perrin Aybarra, and Matrim Cauthon are all of the same age and their birthdays are all within weeks of each other, and the three also live in Emonds Field which is a very small village within the Two Rivers and it's these three boy's that Jordan's story in woven about.

There is a fourth person from this village that's important enough to mention but for now I'll just leave it and get on with a bit about each of the books thus far.

I should point out that Robert Jordan passed away in November of 2007 leaving the twelfth and final book of The Wheel of Time unfinished but Brandon Sanderson of the Elantris and Mistborn Series has stepped in to finished the long awaited A Memory of Light.

THE EYE OF THE WORLD
BOOK ONE
OF THE WHEEL OF TIME™
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 return again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, when the World and Time themselves hang in the balance, a wind rises in the mountains of mist . . .

. . . and Rand al'Thor is cold. Though the spring festival of Bel Tine comes tomorrow, it is a year without spring, a year when green things fail and hope is dying.

It is a year of strangers; of a lady; and a gleeman with his tales of heroes; and a peddler with news of the present — of war with Ghealdan, far away, and of the rising of a false Dragon — the savior whose coming, foretold and dreaded, will bring a new Breaking to the World. But the worst strangers are monsters Rand thought only legend — the bestial Trollocs, and the horrifying Halfmen, whose eyeless gaze is fear.

They want a boy on the brink of manhood, born within a certain span of months. They want Rand himself, or his burly, deliberate friend Perrin, or the prankster Mat.

It is a world where nothing is what it seems. Not Nynaeve, the village Wisdom, who can Read the Wind. Not Moiraine, the lady from outside, whose beauty hides a terrifying identity and a Power that seemed only yesterday to be the stuff of legend. Not the lady's companion, Lan, whose chameleon cloak is stranger than the fluttering, multihued garment that proclaims the gleeman's trade of old Thom Merrilin. And not Egwene, the innkeeper's dark-haired daughter, caught between childhood and womanhood, between love of Rand and determination to become all that her destiny would make her.

The villagers know only that Trollocs hunt them. They have no way of knowing that the Dark One, imprisoned by the Creator at the moment of creation, is stirring in Shayol Ghul.

It is a time for prophecies to be fulfilled. The Wheel of Time is weaving a Web in the Pattern of Ages, a Web to entangle the World. It is a time when Time itself may die, when the Eye of the World may be blinded. What was, and what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

THE GREAT HUNT
BOOK TWO
OF THE WHEEL OF TIME™
For centuries traveling gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of . . .

Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

And it is stolen.

Rand al'Thor, the farmboy who is thought to be the Dragon Reborn — the leader long prophesied who will save the world, but in the saving destroy it; the savior who will run mad and kill all those dearest to him— refuses to accept his fate. Even facing the dreaded Amrylin, the leader of the Aes Sedai who may intend to "gentle" him, Rand fiercely denies his Power. He will have none of it — no matter what Myrddraal and Trollocs, Aes Sedai and dreams stand in his way.
But with the Horn another object is stolen: a dagger from the terrible ruins of Shadar Logoth. Unless the dagger is recovered, Mat Cauthon's life will end. And Mat is Rand's oldest friend. Unwillingly, distrusting everyone, Rand is drawn into the Hunt.

As Egwene, the innkeeper's lovely daughter, and Nynaeve, the young village Wisdom, set out for Tar Valon's White Tower, seat of the Aes Sedai, Rand and the ogier Loial, accompanied by Perrin Aybara, the Wolfbrother who was once a blacksmith, track the Horn and dagger through Shienar — and enter a world stranger than time itself. But Rand cannot escape his Power. The Dark One is stirring in Shayol Ghul. The Dark One wants the Horn. The Dark One wants Rand.

THE DRAGON REBORN
BOOK THREE
OF THE WHEEL OF TIME™
The Dragon Reborn — the leader long prophesied who will save the world, but in the saving destroy it; the savior who will run mad and kill all those dearest to him — is on the run from his destiny.

Able to touch the One Power, but unable to control it, and with no one to teach him how — for no man has done it in three thousand years — Rand al'Thor knows only that he must face the Dark One. But how?

Winter has stopped the war...almost, yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he?

Perrin Aybara is in pursuit with Moiraine Sedai, her Warder Lan, and Loial the Ogier.
Bedeviled by dreams, Perrin is grappling with another deadly problem: how is he to escape the loss of his own humanity?

Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve are approaching Tar Valon, where Mat will be Healed — if he lives until they arrive. But who will tell Amyrlin their news — that the Black Ajah, long thought only a hideous rumor, is all too real? They cannot know that in Tar Valon far worse awaits . . .

Ahead, for all of them, in the Heart of the Stone, lies the next great test of the Dragon Reborn....

THE SHADOW RISING
BOOK FOUR
OF THE WHEEL OF TIME™
The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind.
In Tar Valon, Min sees portents of hideous doom. Will the White Tower itself be broken?

In the Two Rivers, the Whitecloaks ride in pursuit of a man with golden eyes, and in pursuit of the Dragon Reborn.

In Cantorin, among the Sea Folk, High Lady Suroth plots the return of the Seanchan armies to the mainland.

In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve.
Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn....

THE FIRES OF HEAVEN
BOOK FIVE
OF THE WHEEL OF TIME™
In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times bestseller, The Shadow Rising, Robert Jordan again plunges us into his extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world:

...Into the forbidden city of Rhuidean, where Rand al'Thor, now the Dragon Reborn, must conceal his present endeavor from all about him, even Egwene and Moiraine.

...Into the Amyrlin's study in the White Tower, where the Amyrlin, Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan, is weaving new plans.

...Into Andor, where Siuan Sanche and her companions, including the false Dragon Logain, have been arrested for barn-burning.

...Into the luxurious hidden chamber where the Forsaken Rahvin is meeting with three of his fellows to ensure their ultimate victory over the Dragon.
...Into the Queen's court in Caemlyn, where Morgase is curiously in thrall to the handsome Lord Gaebril.

For once the Dragon walks the land, the fires of heaven fall where they will, until all men's lives are ablaze.

And in Shayol Ghul, the Dark One stirs....

A CROWN OF SWORDS
BOOK SEVEN
OF THE WHEEL OF TIME™
A CROWN OF SWORDS is Robert Jordan’s eagerly awaited seventh book in The Wheel of Time epic fantasy series that is sweeping the nation like a firestorm.

The excitement surrounding Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time is unprecedented. Not a day goes by when someone doesn’t call or write Tor Books asking for information on Robert Jordan. Jordan-related phone calls to the Tor offices total in the thousands each year. His popularity can also be witnessed on the internet, where he is also the topic of hundreds of fan-run web sites just like ours.

Set in a mythic land torn between the forces of Light and Darkness, The Wheel of Time is the story of Rand al’Thor, a young man from a small farming village who is destined to become the Dragon Reborn™, the champion who will confront the ultimate evil known as the Dark One.
In A CROWN OF SWORDS, Elayne, Aviendha, and Mat come ever closer to locating the Bowl of the Winds, a ter’angreal that may reverse the endless heat wave sent by the Dark One and restore natural weather.

Egwene begins to gather all manner of women who can channel—Sea Folk, Windfinders, Wise Ones, and some surprising others. And above all, Rand faces the dread Forsaken Sammael, in the shadows of Shandar Logoth, where the blood-hungry mist, Mashadar, waits for prey...

THE PATH OF DAGGERS
BOOK EIGHT
OF THE WHEEL OF TIME™
For millions of fans around the globe, the wait is over. Sequel to the international blockbuster bestseller A Crown of Swords, this epic volume continues one of history's greatest fictional journeys and the most extraordinary work of American fantasy ever published, the world-wide bestselling series — The Wheel of Time.

The phenomenal tale that is mesmerizing a generation of readers now continues:

The Seanchan invasion force is in possession of Ebou Dar. Nynaeve, Elayne, and Aviendha head for Caemlyn and Elayne's rightful throne, but on the way they discover an enemy much worse than the Seanchan.

In Illian, Rand vows to throw the Seanchan back as he did once before. But signs of madness are appearing among the Asha'man.
In Ghealdan, Perrin faces the intrigues of Whitecloaks, Seanchan invaders, the scattered Shaido Aiel, and the Prophet himself. Perrin's beloved wife, Faile, may pay with her life, and Perrin himself may have to destroy his soul to save her.

Meanwhile the rebel Aes Sedai under their young Amyrlin, Egwene al'Vere, face an army that intends to keep them away from the White Tower. But Egwene is determined to unseat the usurper Elaida and reunite the Aes Sedai. She does not yet understand the price that others — and she herself — will pay.

WINTER'S HEART
BOOK NINE
OF THE WHEEL OF TIME™
WINTER’SHEART is Robert Jordan’s eagerly awaited ninth book in his acclaimed The Wheel of Time epic fantasy series, one of the bestselling works of its kind ever published. The Path of Daggers, Book Eight in the series, swept the nation like a firestorm, hitting #1 on bestseller lists across the country, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

In WINTER'S HEART Rand is on the run with Min, and in Cairhien, Cadsuane is trying to figure out where he is headed. Rand's destination is, in fact, one she has never considered.

Mazrim Taim, leader of the Black Tower, is revealed to be a liar. But what is he up to?

Faile, with the Aiel Maidens, Bain and Chiad, and her other companions, Queen Alliandre and Morgase, are prisoners of Sevanna's Shiado Aiel.
Perrin is hunting desperately for Faile as he moves through country rife with bandits and roving Seanchan. The Forsaken are ever more present, and united, and the man called Slayer stalks Tel'aran'rhiod and the wolfdream.

In Ebou Dar, the Seanchan princess known as Daughter of the Nine Moons arrives—and Mat, who has been recuperating in the Tarasin Palace, is introduced to her. Will the marriage that has been foretold come about?

There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it is a beginning . . .

KNIFE OF DREAMS
BOOK ELEVEN
OF THE WHEEL OF TIME™
Internationally bestselling author Robert Jordan’s eleventh book in his wildly popular The Wheel of Time™ series, KNIFE OF DREAMS, will go on-sale nation-wide this October 11, 2005. KNIFE OF DREAMS will be the second to last book in the highly acclaimed The Wheel of Time™ series, the last three books of which have all been #1 New York Times bestsellers.

Jordan, who is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics, has been lauded by The New York Times for his extraordinary story-telling ability: “the books’ battle scenes have the breathless urgency of firsthand experience, and the ambiguities in these novels—the evil laced into the forces of good, the dangers latent in any promised salvation, the sense of the unavoidable onslaught of unpredictable events— bear the marks of American national experience during the last three decades, just as the experience of the First World War and its aftermath gave its imprint to Tolkien’s work.”
In KNIFE OF DREAMS, the dead are walking, men are dying impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: all are signs of the imminence of the Last Battle, when Rand al’Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity’s only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One’s prison. And he

faces other dangers—there are those among the Forsaken who will go to any length to see him dead . . . The winds of time have become a storm, and things that everyone believed were fixed in place forever are changing before their eyes. Now Rand must ride those storm winds, or the Dark One will triumph.

With over 12 million copies of The Wheel of Time™ series sold in North America, Tor has published KNIFE OF DREAMS with a first printing of a million copies.
