Series Description

Wheel of Time is the massively popular and massively huge epic fantasy by Robert Jordan. With over a dozen titles in the series, and thousands of pages, Wheel of Time is known for its super detailed setting, the Westlands, and how the storyline depicts time simultaneously in the distant past and the distant future of Earth. Characters in the series also possess special powers similar to magic called channeling. Jordan’s series has been compared to JRR Tolkien’s works of high fantasy.

First published in 1990, Robert Jordan (the pen name for James Oliver Rigney, Jr.) passed away in 2007 and the series was completed by Brandon Sanderson. Amazon has teamed with Sony Pictures to create a TV series along the lines of Game of Thrones.
