Imagine if you will......you're a young man, working on yer pa's farm fully expecting this to be your lot in life. Of course theres the lass in the village you want to marry (and probably will!), but till then the odd 'tumble' with some of the other maidens will suffice, along with a couple of tankards of apple cider with your good friends. But then a mysterious woman, accompanied by a rather large soldier comes along and tells you...Rand Al'Thor...is in fact the mythical 'Dragon Reborn'!. Not only are you going to save the world from the 'Dark Forces', but then you are going to destroy it! What do you do? Burn her as a ... Read the complete review

With the imminent finish of the Wheel of Time fantasy series as written by Robert Jordan until his death last year I thought I would write a set of reviews on the various books in the series ending with the final book then final overall thoughts. The final book is being split into three books with the first part of the trilogy just being released; this is the twelfth book in the series of which the original plan was to write 6. This can be viewed as being a case for the series increasing popularity or Jordan getting a bit bogged down as he progressed. Anyway this isn't a review on the whole series but the very first novel "The Eye of the World" - ... Read the complete review

"Epic" usually means that a book is about five times longer than it should be, and has a fight between good and evil in it.... usually. Sometimes books are actually epic in a good way. "The Eye of the World" is the first enormous novel in a serious of huge books dealing with a fantasy world and its various troubles. Unfortunatly, it is so plot heavy, that it will be very difficult to tell you anything useful without giving too much away. Ok, the backdrop. Emond's Field is a small village in the back of beyond, where life potters on and only the weather changes. Rand, Mat and Perrin are three young friends - hearty lads who still get ...

I’m always wary of anything with a huge cloud of hype surrounding it, and Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time certainly has that. A friend of mine, however, was given the currently available nine books (out of a planned twelve, I hear) for Christmas, and is currently finishing his second reading. “Read it,” he says. “But I have a shelf full of…” I start – “Read this next.” Every phone call and conversation: “You HAVE to read it.” Well, I’ve yet to know him be wrong (with books, at least!), so I finally succumbed. In fact, I bought all nine books in a special offer. But just ‘cos I’m like . Read the complete review

I enjoy nothing more than a great fantasy book from some of this genres great authors: Tolkien, Feist and Magaret Weis to name a few. So when I got recommended The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan by someone on Dooyoo, I couldn’t wait to give it a go. The series that is at this moment 9 books long starts with what is dubbed an all time classic- ‘The Eye of the World’. So it was with this book that I entered another realm in entirety. The story line starts us in the little Hamlet of Emonds Field, home to three friends who are the focus of all the series, namely Rand al’Thor, Mat Cauthon and Perrin Aybara. After one night of ...
