I never actually finished this series, but I found the first 5 or 6 books very compelling. By the 7th I felt it was meandering a bit and I never read any more, intending to come back to it when Jordan finished writing it. Of course, Jordan died before it was completed and Brandon Sanderson (I believe) completed it from his outlines and notes. Honestly, this feels like a much more likely successor to "Game of Thrones" than the Amazon "Lord of the Rings" does. Any fans?

Quote:
The fantasy epic is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists, but only women can use it. The story follows Moiraine, a member of the shadowy and influential all-female organization called the Aes Sedai, as she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women. Moiraine believes that one of them might be the reincarnation of an incredibly powerful individual, whom prophecies say will either save humanity or destroy it. The series draws on numerous elements of European and Asian culture and philosophy, most notably the cyclical nature of time found in Buddhism and Hinduism.
