The Wheel of Time Series
by Robert Jordan
"The Wheel of Time turns,
and Ages come and pass,
leaving memories that become legend.
Legend fades to myth,
and even myth is long forgotten
when the Age that gave it birth
Aes Sedai, the wielders of the One Power, have long been feared by many.
Even the most powerful
dance on Tar Valon puppet strings like this wacko girlie here...heheh!!
Lews Therin Telamon was THE most powerful - as IS
the Dragon Reborn. Rand al'Thor, the Dragon, is suddenly pulled out of
his peaceful village "The Two Rivers" to face a life of danger and
uncertainty - with a certainty at the end. He is fated to
face the Dark One in the last battle and die - unless he does not go
mad and die first from the taint on saidin.
Yet, he is not the only one. Along with Rand, two other boys from
Emond's Field - Mat Cauthon and Perrin Aybara - are also ta'veren.
Egwene and Nynaeve, also from the same village, face drastic
changes in their lives. Both can channel!!! Nynaeve had a block -
only being able to channel when angry. Still, she was powerful enough
to defeat one of the Forsaken (when angry).
Aviendha, an Aiel "Maiden of the Spear", is also one of the three
women - THREE - in Rand's life. She's constantly fussing about
ji'e'toh, the Aiel code of honor.
Always loyal, she's dedicated to her near-sister
Elayne, one of the five female protagonists. But...they do like the same man...

Robert Jordan always has this dumb,
gross-looking gray illustration of himself in every da__ned book
jacket... But he actually took a picture for the
release of Book 8 (yes, there are EIGHT of these books).
::snicker:: He looks like a Tinker/Mat when he's 50!!!
