Download the First Part of Robert Jordan’s The Eye of the World

“Robert Jordan has come to dominate the
world that Tolkien began to reveal.”

– New York Times


One day a wizard arrives in your sleepy village and insists you are to save the world. It’s a familiar tale, to be sure.

Now imagine that artful tale as it takes you through a world of astounding depth and detail, one that expands the boundaries of fantasy established by The Lord of the Rings, one that involves the hopes and fears of an entire world.

This is the tale of The Wheel of Time, created by Robert Jordan. It is an epic for our time.

And it all begins in the first book, The Eye of the World. Download the first portion right now:
