Listen to Episode:
It is a wild ride with our entry into the Wheel of Time series. This is a respected and long enduring fantasy series (14 books written over 23 years) that has been compared to the Lord of the Rings for its ambitious and rich world, built around a compelling epic narrative. The book delivers from page 1 with a prologue that sets the stakes high for a world at war between the Shadow and the Light. The characters are rich, funny, flawed and I can feel what they experience….we are constantly reminded that these characters must endure through many brutalities and hardships. This saga is off to a great start.
