Sagan om Drakens återkomst, #1

Farornas väg

The Eye of the World
Bok av Robert Jordan
Farornas väg inleder ett fantasy-epos fyllt av berättarglädje och hisnande äventyr i en värld som trots magi och skrämmande varelser känns lika levande som vår egen. Fem ungdomar, en marknadsgycklare och två medlemmar ur Aes Sedais gåtfulla orden flyr från en liten by i civilisationens utkant för att söka nå Tar Valon, ordens legendariska huvudsäte. Ondskans hantlangare har dykt upp i det fredliga landet och vill ha ungdomarna i sitt våld. Endast i Tar Valon kan de känna sig säkra. Väl där hoppas Moiraine kunna ta reda på varför de fem är så värdefulla för Skuggornas Herre. Men tecken i tiden varslar om märkliga händelser. I denna värld är godheten komplicerad, liksom ondskan. De goda kan i en given situation vara lika farliga som de onda. Men ondskan vill total förstörelse, total makt och den märks inte alltid på ytan.

I finished it! And it was amazing! On an enjoyment leve this is a easy five star read, but when I put it through my CAWPILE it came out as a four star. A very high four star.

This was just ... amazing. I'm new to adult fantasy in the sense of these epic long series. But I started to read this and was blown away. It don't know how Jordan could make this beast of a book feel like it was a 300 pages. The pacing was just amazing, something happened all the time and small reveals came in every other chapter. The chapters weren't even that long of 20+ pages (some of course was).

The magic system was so interesting and I found myself questioning what was gonna happen and what will happen in later books. I shipped characters and smiled so fucking hard when they did something and said something to one another.

As for some parts, like the long historical lessons about some war I didn't even can remember any name of, I can admit that I skimmed through those. Even if it was of value to read, I wouldn't remember it either way if it came up in some conversation again.

Even though it is a book with a large cast of characters, and with characters that you get small glimpses of that later appear again, Jordan is fantastic to summarize who that person is. If you want to try to read more adult fantasy with a very cool magic system (where women are in power), you should check this out!

I've already purchased the two next book in this series and I can't wait to dive in to it even more.
