We love the Wheel of Time epic fantasy series written by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson (after Jordan’s passing in 2007). While not as well known as Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings, the series has its band of loyal followers. The series is so popular that Amazon bought the rights to make a TV series that will launch in the next year or two.
The main series consists of 14 books and a prequel. There have also been a number of graphic novels and companion books developed over the years. Below you’ll find a list of all of the Wheel of Time books in order.
Book Order of Wheel of Time
Robert Jordan (real name: James Oliver Rigney Jr.) began writing the Wheel of Time series in 1990 with The Eye of the World. The series consists of 14 books and a prequel. Unfortunately, Robert Jordan passed away in 2007 and did not finish writing the series. The 12th book was supposed to be the final book of the series, but when Brandon Sanderson, a well-known sci-fi writer, took over the series, he realized there was too much content to include in one book so he split the 12th book into three books.
