Moiraine Damodred arrives in Emond’s Field on a quest to find the one prophesized to stand against The Dark One, a malicious entity sowing the seeds of chaos and destruction. When a vicious band of half-men, half beasts invade the village seeking their master’s enemy, Moiraine persuades Rand al’Thor and his friends to leave their home and enter a larger unimaginable world filled with dangers waiting in the shadows and in the light.

    The zoom function does not work, it will simply remove sections of the book instead of adding pages for the zoomed text.

    Told with gentleness, rich in detail and enough exciting bits to keep you interested. I liked it and going on to the next one…

    was recommended this by a good friend of mine after finishing Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive and Mistborn series. The immense level of detail was astounding but at the same time was a bit overwhelming and made some sections seem unnecessary but i am glad i powered through bc it was totally worth it. starting book 2 now!
  • First time read, recommended

    First time reading the book, without any prior knowledge of the series. It was engaging, had adventure, fun, world building, and character development enough to keep me interested until the end. As with many stories involving clear cut good versus evil universes, the ultimate ending seems preordained, but I will happily continue reading the series and see if how I am surprised. Many questions left unanswered and as seeing this series went from being a planned trilogy to ending as a whole bookshelf, I understand that will be normal. Definitely recommend if you like LOTR.
  • Must Read for High Fantasy fans but some complaints

    Just finished the book for the first time, and the world the Jordan has created is massive with tons of lore and unique, interesting characters. Although it’s not a critique on the book, there’s so much knowledge that I had a hard time wrapping my head around everything. However, I like the world so much that I’m not opposed to rereading it after I get further into the series. Most of the book is told from one characters perspective so some of the supporting casts character development was left out. The pacing can be a jarring to the point where it gets confusing as to how much time passes, and I feel like I’m missing some of the gradual character growth that could be there considering the length of the book.
  • Starts slow

    And I mean slowwww I have tried getting into this daunting series for maybe 5 years—it never seemed to hold my attention— if only I would have made to chapter 4 or 5 Before now. Don’t do what I did, stick with it till at least chapter 6 and see if you can go a day without checking in.
  • Great book series worth reading for sure!!!

    Kind of expensive for the story you get. This is the first time Ive ever read Robert Jordan, (2019) and it is definitely dated. The plot starts out very slowly and only has glimpses of good story telling, in addition the writing can be very confusing and unclear Overall I wish I had purchased another book. But on the other hand I read the entire thing, and also read the next book in the series. Can definitely say the next book has a similar story line, so can’t recommend that either
