Praise for Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time
“Jordan’s multivolume epic [is] a feast for fantasy aficionados.” – Library Journal
Book One: THE EYE OF THE WORLD

Book Two: THE GREAT HUNT
“On very rare occasions, very talented storytellers create worlds that are beyond fantasy; worlds that become realities. Robert Jordan has.” – Morgan Llywelyn, author of Lion of Ireland and Druids
Book Three: THE DRAGON REBORN
“One of the books to read this year.” – Science Fiction Review
Book Four: THE SHADOW RISING
“The fourth volume of the most ambitious American fantasy saga continues to suggest that The Wheel of Time will also be the finest.” – Booklist

“Rich and Enthralling.” – Locus
