These were released in eBook format as promotional tools for the then-upcoming release. 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. The book is an encapsulating glossary of the entire series.
Development[ edit ] Writing and conception[ edit ] In the early s Robert Jordan wrote several Conan the Barbarian novels for Tor Books, including a novelization of the movie Conan the Destroyer. 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 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.
Sales then doubled with the publication of the second novel just eight months later generating more interest in the first book. 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.
According to Forbes , Jordan had intended for it to be the final book "even if it reaches 2, pages. The final book of the series uses Jordan's original title, A Memory of Light.
The book was published on January 8, Jordan had left very little in the way of notes for these additional novels—only two sentences in the case of the sequel trilogy. 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.
The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.
When The Two Rivers is attacked by Trollocs—a savage tribe of half-men, half-beasts— five villagers flee that night into a world they barely imagined, with new dangers waiting in the shadows and in the light.
TV series update: Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce. Open religious and political conflicts add a gritty realism, while the cities and courts provide plenty of drama and splendor. Women have a stronger role than in Tolkien Each character in this large cast remains distinct Their adventures are varied, and exciting The Eye of the World stands alone as a fantasy epic.
He has a fine eye for detail and a vivid sense of drama. Jordan has a powerful vision of good and evil-- but what strikes me as most pleasurable about The Eye of the World is all the fascinating people moving through a rich and interesting world.
Impressive work, and highly recommended.
