The Wheel of Time on Amazon Prime

Amazon's billion-dollar adaptation of The Lord of the Rings doesn't begin until next September. However, The Wheel of Time should satiate fantasy fans (myself included) as an heir to Game of Thrones.

Read the official synopsis for The Wheel of Time:

"The Wheel of Time is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists, but only women can use it. Meaning that in this series — women hold the keys to power. The story follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), a member of the shadowy and influential all-female organization called the ‘Aes Sedai’ as she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women. Moiraine’s interested in these five because she believes one of them might be the reincarnation of an incredibly powerful individual, whom prophecies say will either save humanity or destroy it. The series draws on numerous elements of European and Asian culture and philosophy, most notably the cyclical nature of time found in Buddhism and Hinduism."

The first season premieres on Prime Video (affiliate link) on 19th November.
