Shortly after this, Tamra and a number of Aes Sedai she had secretive meetings with die mysteriously, and a new Amyrlin is chosen. Sierin tells Moiraine that she must stay in Tar Valon, as the tower has plans to put her on the throne of Cairhien. Moiraine flees north to the Borderlands, where she encounters Lan.
Lan's story through the novel follows events by his carneira , the Lady Edeyn , to raise support for him to regain the lands of Malkier, and to make Lan its King in more than just name. The confrontation results in five deaths, including Merean and Edeyn's daughter Iselle, which takes all the wind out of Edeyn's plot.
After this, Lan leaves Chachin and Moiraine finds him outside the city. She tells him everything, including the existence of Black Ajah, and asks him to be her warder. He accepts and is bonded.
The title "New Spring" is not only a reference to the fact that winter has gone on much longer than usual, but it is also refers to the major changes that are about to happen with the birth of the Dragon Reborn. They are sworn to secrecy and raised to Aes Sedai. Moiraine begins a quest to search for the prophesied child, and meets up with Lan Mandragoran.
Graphic novel Main article: New Spring comic It is also the first of Jordan's works to be adapted to graphic novel format. Issue 1 was published in July The latter three Talents have no obvious connection to the One Power, but are described as occurring only in channelers. Some abilities depicted in the Wheel of Time are not related to the One Power or the ability to channel.
Egwene al'Vere is both a Dreamer and Dreamwalker, and the text never establishes whether or not these are two separate things. Dreamwalking is well known to the Aiel Wise ones, who use it for society-wide communication; Aiel Dreamwalkers include channelers Amys and Melaine and the non-channeler Bair, who become Egwene's teachers as the last Aes Sedai Dreamer died about five hundred years earlier.
No man is explicitly identified as a Dreamwalker in the series, but many of the male and female Forsaken, Shai'tan's top lieutenants, appear in Tel'aran'rhiod, and the male Forsaken Ishamael projects himself into other characters' dreams.
The Pattern causes events and the actions of others surrounding a ta'veren to conform to the ta'veren's destiny , usually resulting in occurrences that are possible but unlikely. Mat has exceptionally good luck at gambling and in battle, while Perrin easily earns the support of others. Rand's presence often affects a large area around himself, causing such anomalies as one entire village pairing off in marriage in one day, another village erupting into violence over every disagreement its residents ever had, and a city's newborns being free of birth defects during Rand's residency.
Rand al'Thor is also the "Dragon Reborn," a prophesied savior. Towards the end of the series, Rand is revealed to have reality warping abilities related to the Dragon Reborn's connection to the Pattern; without channeling, he causes plants to flourish and kindles a pipe.
Perrin Aybara and Elyas Machera are "Wolfbrothers," individuals who can communicate telepathically with wolves, which are depicted as sapient. Wolfbrothers also have abilities similar to Dreaming and Dreamwalking, although they are not shown as capable of entering the dreams of others.
The souls of wolves inhabit Tel'aran'rhiod, which they call the "wolf dream," and a Wolfbrother who loses his identity as a man may become a wolf there. Only male Wolfbrothers are depicted in the series.
Min Farshaw sees auras and images around people; she does not always understand these visions, but sometimes she instinctively understands them and is always correct in such cases. Min is the only person in the series depicted as having this ability. However, the superstitious Seanchan are apparently familiar with it and consider the images to be omens ; when Empress Fortuona learns that Min possesses this ability, she identifies Min as a "Doomseer" and immediately makes her a top advisor.
Hurin is a "sniffer," one who can detect violence as an unpleasant odor. This ability is apparently accepted by his countrymen; it is considered an asset for his career in law enforcement, and Perrin pretends to be a sniffer to conceal that the true source of his insight is communication with wolves.
The Seanchan produce ter'angreal rings that, when touched with the wearer's blood, grant him or her the abilities of a "Bloodknife": The books describe several scenarios where Shai'tan gives powers to individuals. People whose souls are removed by Shai'tan become supernaturally inconspicuous "Gray Men," ideal assassins.
Padan Fain serves Shai'tan and is given the ability to track Rand al'Thor. Padan Fain later merges with the ghost of the evil Mordeth, gaining the abilities to inculcate others with paranoia and to summon and control a deadly miasma. Shai'tan merges the bodies and souls of Isam Mandragoran and Luc Mantear into the individual known as Slayer, to whom Shai'tan grants powers involving Tel'aran'rhiod, including the ability to travel instantaneously between there and the physical world while awake and without the use of a gateway.
All paperback page totals given are for the most widely available mass-market paperback editions. The page count for the hardback editions do not include glossary or appendix page counts. Jordan expanded this into the stand-alone novel New Spring that was published in January In the first book, The Eye of the World , was repackaged as two volumes with new illustrations for younger readers: From the Two Rivers ,  including an extra chapter Ravens before the existing prologue, and To the Blight  with an expanded glossary.
On several occasions, chapters from various books in the series were released several months in advance of publication. These were released in eBook format as promotional tools for the then-upcoming release.
Tor Books published a companion book to the series, entitled The World of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time , in November , which contains much hitherto unrevealed background information about the series including the first maps of the entire world and the Seanchan home continent. Jordan co-authored the book with Teresa Patterson. Jordan ruled the book broadly canonical but stated that it was written from the perspective of an historian within The Wheel of Time universe and was prone to errors of bias and guesswork.
Jordan also wrote a short story, "The Strike at Shayol Ghul", which predates the main series by several thousand years.
Deleted portions for a specific character from Memory of Light were published as a short story, under the title "River of Souls", in Unfettered: Tales by Masters of Fantasy Spring The book is an encapsulating glossary of the entire series. These proved successful and in he proposed an idea for an epic fantasy series of three books to Tom Doherty, the head of Tor Books.
Jordan began writing the novel that became The Eye of the World. The novel proved extremely difficult to write and characters and storylines changed considerably during the writing process. The series was originally centered on an older man who discovered relatively late in life that he was the 'chosen one' who had to save the world. However, Jordan deliberately decided to move closer to the tone and style of J.
Tolkien 's The Fellowship of the Ring and made the characters younger and less experienced. Tom Doherty enjoyed The Eye of the World so much that he declared it would be the biggest fantasy series since Tolkien, [ citation needed ] and took the unprecedented steps of sending free review copies to every bookstore in the United States to generate interest.
Sales then doubled with the publication of the second novel just eight months later generating more interest in the first book. Jordan wrote full-time at breakneck speed for the next several years until he completed the seventh volume, A Crown of Swords , at which point he slowed down, delivering a book every two years. Fans objected when he took some time off to expand a short story into a prequel novel called New Spring , so he decided to shelve his plans for additional prequels in favor of finishing off the last two volumes in the series.
He rejected criticisms of the later volumes of the series slowing down in pace in order to concentrate on minor secondary characters at the expense of the main characters from the opening volumes, but acknowledged that his structure for the tenth volume, Crossroads of Twilight where he showed a major scene from the prior book, Winter's Heart , from the perspective of the main characters that were not involved in the scene , had not worked out as he had planned.
Jordan had stated that the main sequence would conclude with the twelfth book, A Memory of Light. According to Forbes , Jordan had intended for it to be the final book "even if it reaches 2, pages. Jordan was diagnosed with the terminal heart disease primary amyloidosis with cardiomyopathy in December ,  and while he intended to finish at least A Memory of Light even if the "worse comes to worst,"  he made preparations in case he was not able to complete the book: With Jordan's death on September 16, , the conclusion of the series was in question.
On March 30, , Tor Books announced that A Memory of Light would be split into three volumes, with Brandon Sanderson citing timing and continuity reasons. The final book of the series uses Jordan's original title, A Memory of Light. The book was published on January 8, Prior to his death, Jordan had often discussed adding an additional two prequels and an 'outrigger' sequel trilogy.
Jordan had left very little in the way of notes for these additional novels—only two sentences in the case of the sequel trilogy. Dabel Brothers began adapting the series in comic book form, starting with the prequel New Spring in July Red Eagle cited delays and changes to the creative team on the DB Pro end.
On March 17, , they showcased ten pages of art from the prelude to the series "The Wheel of Time: Eye of the World 0 — Dragonmount" on their website.

A Wheel of Time computer game was released in Over the course of the game, a lone Aes Sedai must track down a robber following an assault on the White Tower, and prevent the Dark One from being released prematurely.
She eventually learns of and executes a long-forgotten ritual at Shayol Ghul to ensure the Dark Lord remains sealed within the prison.
While Robert Jordan was consulted in the creation of the game, he did not write the storyline himself and the game is not considered canon. The Wheel of Time Roleplaying Game was released in from Wizards of the Coast using the d20 rules developed for the third edition of the Dungeons and Dragons game. The game had a single adventure module published in , Prophecies of the Dragon. Shortly after the release of the adventure book Wizards of the Coast announced they would not be releasing any further products for the game.
Robert Jordan cited some problems with the roleplaying game, such as storyline details in the adventure module that contradicted the books. The following year Obsidian Entertainment announced that they would be working on the project, for a PlayStation 3, Xbox , and PC release.
The German power metal band Blind Guardian have written two songs dedicated to the Wheel of Time series as part of their album At the Edge of Time: The American power metal band Noble Beast, on their album of the same name, wrote a song entitled "The Dragon Reborn", in reference to Rand al'Thor.
