I have been reading fantasy books for about 15 years now and one series that I've never read but always meant to was the Wheel of Time books by Robert Jordan. I've always avoided spoilers of this series as I've known I would read it one day. With the news that the final book is due to be released next year I though it would be the perfect time to start.

What would you guys say I have in store for me? How does it shape compared to Erikson, GRRM, Bakker et al.

I've read a lot of so called "Gritty" fantasy over the last few years and I have a feeling this isn't so much, which actually might be a nice change of tone.

I have one concern that it may be more geared towards younger readers, in the same vain as Eddings, is this the case also?
