The Eye of the World was not the beginning.
There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of The Wheel of Time.

The Wheel of Time is set in a fantasy world still recovering from the Breaking of the World, an ancient calamity in which male magic users were driven insane when the source of their powers was corrupted. The series begins when a group of youngsters from a backwater town get caught in a grand prophecy involving the rebirth of the Dragon, the champion of the Light and the person who inadvertently broke the world in the first place. Written by Robert R. R. Jordan (and finished by Brandon Sanderson after Jordan's death), the series is considered one of the best high fantasy series by many readers.
Amazon's The Wheel of Time is currently in production now, with no release date. The series stars Rosamund Pike, Josha Stradowski, Marcus Rutherford, Madeleine Madden, Zoe Robins, Barney Harris, and Daniel Henney. The series has yet to release a full trailer, but Amazon has released several teasers showing off iconic items and other early conceptual pieces.
