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 returns again.

De la fantasy mais en même temps pas totalement et du coup c'est cool

Cette série de romans commencée dans les années 90 m’a été conseillée par une amie ; j’ignorais totalement son existence.

C’était il y a quelques mois, depuis j’ai lu les trois premiers tomes et je progresse actuellement dans le quatrième. Mon avis : ce sont de bons romans, avec des aspects assez classiques du genre fantasy, mais tout de même quelques aspects qui le mettent à part ; l’auteur dévoile petit à petit un univers large et assez fascinant, qui garde malgré tout une part de mystère.

This was, without a doubt, one of the most frustrating reads of my entire life! I can say, with absolute certainty, that had it not been for the audiobook I would never have finished it; I would have thrown it into the nearest wall and never picked it back up …

Simply in-cred-ible. THIS is what I wanted when I picked up the George R. R. Martin books. Epic fantasy with complex main characters (I really like how the aes sedai are both respected and hated/feared at the same time), but without killing off all your favorites. I couldn't put this down. I keep hearing negative comments on the middle books on this series, but I will continue on anyway. There were many aspects of this world that reminded me of LOTR, which may explain why I liked it so much.
