The Wheel of Time season 1 plot: what’s it about?
The first book, The Eye of the World, tells the story of three youths who set out on a journey from their village in order to save it. The problem is that they have no idea what’s happening or where to go, and all that awaits them are harsh realities like not being able to return home again after setting off.
A brief synopsis of what we can expect from The
Wheel of Time season 1.
Set in an unnamed world (fans call it The Redlands or The World of the Wheel), The Wheel of Time follows Rand author, a humble boy who lives in a small village known as the Two Rivers.
After Rand’s home is attacked by the Dark One, an evil entity who wants to destroy the world, he’s rescued by Moiraine Damodred, a powerful magician and member of a secret all-female organization called the Aes Sedai.
Believing that the Dark One was seeking out the Dragon Reborn – a prophesied champion of light who could defeat the lord of evil – Moiraine leads Rand on a dangerous, continent-spanning journey that will decide the fate of the world.
Rand, though, isn’t the only character who could be the so-called Dragon Reborn. His male friends – Matrim ‘Mat’ Cauthon and Perrin Aybara – are also the ancient heroes that Moiraine seeks.
Joining Moiraine, Rand, Mat, and Perrin on their adventure are Rand’s female friend Egwene al’Vere, Two Rivers’ wise woman Nynaeve al’Meara, and Moiraine’s Warder companion Lan Mandragoran.
