I'm a huge fan of the Wheel of Time and if you're like me, you will love this book. It's a fascinating story of a world that is struggling and visitors from other times. You can see some of the early themes that Jordan than used later on in the wheel of time, such as time and legends. Cultural differences in a world, where fantasy is often so monolithic.

The book is a stand alone, and it was written long before the Eye of the World, so keep in mind that it is from a different time and place. The protagonist is a warrior of a nomadic culture. Sensitivities to our modern culture are not found in this time and place. The characters have depth and feeling to them. They make good choices, they make bad choices. They are heroic and they are flawed.

If you're a fan of darker fantasy novels and you want to see a book that explores cultures, history, makes you think, then this is a book for you.
