A long series, 14 books. Not the beat at summong things up. Found this:


The series proper commences almost twenty years later in the Two Rivers, a near-forgotten district of the country of Andor. An Aes Sedai, Moiraine, and her Warder Lan, arrive in the village of Emond's Field, secretly aware that servants of the Dark One are searching for a young man living in the area. Moiraine is unable to determine which of three youths (Rand al'Thor, Matrim Cauthon, or Perrin Aybara) is the Dragon Reborn, and leads all three of them from the Two Rivers, along with their friend Egwene al'Vere. Nynaeve al'Meara, the village wise-woman, later joins them. Gleeman Thom Merrilin also travels with the group. The first novel depicts their flight from various agents of the Shadow and their attempts to reach the Aes Sedai city of Tar Valon. Thereafter the protagonists are frequently split into different groups and pursue different missions toward the cause of the Dragon Reborn, sometimes thousands of miles apart. As they struggle to unite the various kingdoms against the Dark One's forces, their task is complicated by rulers of the nations who refuse to lose their autonomy; by the zealots styling themselves 'the Children of the Light', who do not believe in the prophecies; and by the Seanchan, the descendants of a long-lost colony of Artur Hawkwing's empire. The Aes Sedai also become divided on how to deal with the Dragon Reborn.

As the story expands, new characters representing different factions are introduced.


Are a lot of characters.

I love these books, although I'm afraid they have been misled with the casting, but so long as they can act and play the parts the tv series will be amazing aka I'm excited

The flows are invisible, thats why the men and women struggle to in combat against each other. I suppose doors and fire will have real effects but otherwise should be clean.


Trollocs will be hilarious

I know the flows are invisible the average. But us a reader we are told what flows being used and may show of that, It part of it is done from an Aes Sedai point of view she can see the female flows.

Well I suppose if it shows their perspective and those of others that would work, and battles between male and female showing only one side
