Set in the medieval period, The Eye of the World: Book One of The Wheel of Time starts in Emond's Field, a quiet farming village in the Two Rivers region. Unbeknownst to the villagers, Emond's Field will soon be under attack by a horde of barbarous creatures known as Trollocs, followers of the Dark One. Three young men leave the village, convinced by two strangers that they are the target of the violent attack.

Severed from their lives and the world they know, Rand, Matrim and Perrin begin an incredible epic quest, involving an always growing cast of characters, along with two other villagers: The village's Wisdom, a woman recognized for her knowledge of forecasting the weather and of healing, and Egwene, the mayor's daughter, who possesses her own remarkable gift.

Author Robert Jordan artfully constructs a enthralling fantasy world full of detailed history, extraordinary creatures, political strife, and two kinds of magic: the male and the female. His alternate world is populated by countless unforgettable characters, alien cultures and complex subplots, which keep the enjoyable fantasy moving briskly along towards its climactic conclusion.

First published in 1990, this is the first audiobook in the Wheel of Time series. Originally planned to include six books, the series grew along with its readership to a fourteen book series.

Robert Jordan lived with his wife, Harriet, in Charleston, South Carolina, where he was born in 1948. He began to read at the age of four, and by five was enjoying Jules Verne and Mark Twain. After graduating with a degree in physics from The Citadel, he served two tours with the US Army in Vietnam, and was decorated for his service. In 2007, Jordan died from complications of the rare blood disease amyloidosis.
