The Eye of the World - Robert Jordan

A pretty good fantasy novel.

It starts with a diversion into the past, which shows the problems with the corruption of magic and its dimorphic nature.

In the present, some monsters and worse appear to be after a group of your average farm boy and girl types, in your Nazgul after hobbits type scenario.

They bail, and a female magic wielder and her partner, who can handle himself in a fight, go with them.

A quest starts, and reveals who these seemingly unimportant rural types are.

4 out of 5
