The Wheel of Time is one of those series that sliced open my gullet and made a home in my innards. I’ve been reading—and re-reading—it off and once since the early 90s and have spent more time listening to narrators Michael Kramer and Kate Reading than is accepted by polite society.
On many of those re-reads, I made the mistake of skipping the prologue. Prompted by news of the upcoming show, I re-read the whole thing again and realized that it is, almost literally, all there in the prologue.
So here, to start the most epic of re-reads, I’m digging into the prologue and spoiling everything.
