From Our Editors
This Wheel of
Time boxed set has the first three books of Robert Jordan's ambitious fantasy
saga. The Eye of the World is set in a
world in danger of falling to ruin with the return of pure evil. In
The Great Hunt, the legendary Horn of
Valere- the horn said to be able to raise the dead heroes of the
past - must be found by Rand al'Thor. The third book, The Dragon Reborn, follows the competing
factions to the city Tear, place of the magical sword Callendor
that none but the Dragon Reborn may wield. Jordan offers an epic-length tale of
good and evil that aims for the hearts of readers.
