Moraine is an Aes Sedai, a magician with the ability to wield the One Power, and she brings warnings of a terrible evil awakening in the world. That very night, the village is attacked by bloodthirsty Trollocs - a fearsome tribe of beast-men thought to be no more than myth. As Emond's Field burns, Moraine and her warrior-guardian help Rand and his companions to escape. But it is only the beginning of their troubles. For Moraine believes Rand Al'Thor is the Dragon Reborn, and that he is fated to unite the world against the rising darkness and lead the fight against a being so powerful and evil it is known simply as the Dark One. Part One of the opening volume to Robert Jordan's classic Wheel of Time series, The Eye of the World continues with TO THE BLIGHT, also available in March 2003.Hide synopsis

Fantasy, romance, action, intrigue and power. This series has it all! The hardest part is making it through the first book. After that you will be dying to get your hands on the next one. With the number of characters that you are introduced to it is understandable that this first book of the series isn't as gripping as the rest. However, by the end you will be on the edge of your seat wanting to know more. Stick with it. The series is amazing, it will have you thinking, what more could possibly happen? And you won't be disappointed! If you have a wild imagination and loving being drawn into the fanasty world, you won't want to miss a single book!
This is the first book of a great series. Moiraine Damodred, an Aes Sedai, and her Warder, al?Lan Mandragoran, take the main character: Rand al?Thor and his two friends, Matrim Cauthon and Perrin Aybara out of their village just in time before it is destroyed. From there, they are chased and hounded by the forces of evil for reasons only Moiraine knows. From a simple start to an amazing end, this book will make you want more. As luck will have it there is more.
