The eighth through eleventh volumes each debuted at 1 on the New York Times bestseller list. As of August 12, , the series had sold 44 million copies worldwide. The series has spawned several games, and even a soundtrack. In April , it was confirmed that the books were being adapted as a TV series. Contents [ show ] Premise At the dawn of time a deity known as the Creator forged the universe and the Wheel of Time , which spins the Pattern of the Ages using the lives of men and women as its threads.

Wheel of Time 12 - The Gathering Storm - Robert Jordan.pdf

The Wheel has seven spokes, each representing an age, and it is rotated by the One Power , which flows from the True Source. The One Power is divided into male and female halves, saidin and saidar , which work in opposition and in unison to drive the Wheel. Humans who can use it's power are known as channelers; the principal organization of such channelers in the books is called the Aes Sedai or 'Servants of All' in the Old Tongue.

The Creator imprisoned its antithesis, "Shai'tan," the Dark One , at the moment of creation, sealing him away from the Wheel. However, in a time called the Age of Legends , an Aes Sedai experiment inadvertently breached the Dark One's prison, allowing his influence to seep back into the world.

He rallied the powerful, the corrupt, and the ambitious to his cause and these servants began an effort to free the Dark One fully from his prison, so he might remake time and reality in his own image. In response to this threat, the Wheel spun out the Dragon , a channeler of immense power, to be a champion for the Light.

After a grueling ten-year war, Lews Therin led his forces to victory in a daring assault on the volcano of Shayol Ghul the site of the earthly link to the Dark One's prison , and was able to seal off the Dark One's prison. However, at the moment of victory the Dark One was able to taint saidin, driving male channelers of the One Power insane.

Lews Therin killed his friends and family and then himself.

The other male channelers devastated the world with the One Power, unleashing earthquakes and tidal waves that reshaped the world. Eventually, the last male channeler was killed or cut off from the One Power, leaving the human race all but destroyed and only women able to wield the One Power safely.

The Aes Sedai reconstituted and guided humanity out of this dark time.

Mankind now lived under the shadow of a prophecy that the Dark One would break free from his prison and the Dragon would be Reborn to fight him once more, and although he is humanity's only hope to succeed against the Dark One, he would devastate the world a second time in the process.

Over the next three and a half thousand years, the human race returns to a level of technology roughly comparable to that of the Middle Ages, with the difference that women enjoy full equality with men in most societies, and are superior in some.

This is put down to the power and influence of the female-only Aes Sedai spilling over into everyday life. Several major wars have ravaged the main continent since the defeat of the Dark One, such as the Trolloc Wars , when the surviving servants of the Dark One tried to destroy civilization once more but were defeated by an alliance of nations led by the Aes Sedai; and the War of the Hundred Years , a devastating civil war that followed the fall of a continent-spanning empire ruled by the High King, Artur Hawkwing.

These wars have prevented the human race from regaining the power and high technology of the Age of Legends, and also left humanity divided.

Even the prestige of the Aes Sedai has fallen, with their shrinking numbers and the emergence of organizations such as the Children of the Light , a military order who hold that all who dabble with the One Power are servants of the Shadow.

The nations of the modern era are able to unite against the warrior-clans of the Aiel , who cross into the western kingdoms on a mission of vengeance after they suffer a grievous insult, but are too divided to work effectively together in other areas. Plot summary The prequel novel, New Spring , takes place during the Aiel War and chronicles the end of the conflict and the discovery by the Aes Sedai that the Prophecies of the Dragon have been fulfilled and the Dragon has been Reborn.

Aes Sedai agents are dispatched to try and find the newborn child before servants of the Shadow can do the same.

The series proper commences almost twenty years later in the Two Rivers district of the kingdom of Andor , a near-forgotten backwater. Moiraine, Siuan and the Amyrlin Tamra are the only ones to witness the foretelling.

The Amyrlin then sets Accepted to record the births of all babies in towns and camps around Tar Valon and Dragonmount during the last days of the Aiel War, as a secretive way of finding the Dragon without letting other Aes Sedai know what is happening. Moiraine and Siuan are tested and become Aes Sedai.

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.Lord of the rings - I get that this is the very foundation of the fantasy genre but still I can see way too much similar story lines. Aiel channelers are expected to become Wise Ones, the culture's spiritual leaders, as are all Dreamwalkers; other worthy women may become Wise Ones without these special powers.

What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. Characters I wanted to punch and strangle eventually became tolerable and even likeable, while others I found awesome and rooted for turned out to disappoint or somehow disappeared without good reason see: See also: Jordan began writing the novel that became The Eye of the World.

She made me realise for sure that Rand Al'Thor has a thing for tsunderes and is a bit or much of a masochist.
