The Dragon Reborn -- the leader long prophesied who will save the world, but in the saving destroy it; the savior who will run mad and kill all those dearest to him -- is on the run from his destiny. Able to touch the One Power, but unable to control it, and with no one to teach him how -- for no man has done it in three thousand years -- Rand al'Thor knows only that he must face the Dark One. But how? Winter has stopped the war -- almost -- yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he? Perrin Aybara is in pursuit with Moiraine Sedai, her Warder Lan, and Loial the Ogier. Bedeviled by dreams, Perrin is grappling with another deadly problem -- how is he to escape the loss of his own humanity? Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve are approaching Tar Valon, where Mat will be Healed -- if he lives until they arrive. But who will tell the Amyrlin their news -- that the Black Ajah, long thought only a hideous rumor, is all too real? They cannot know that in Tar Valon far worse awaits. Ahead, for all of them, in the Heart of the Stone, lies the next great test of the Dragon Reborn.… (more)

The Dragon Reborn is the third book in The Wheel of Time series. Don't start with this book; instead, start with The Eye of the World.

So, you just finished The Great Hunt and want to know if you should read the next book. After all, Rand is the Dragon Reborn, and who doesn't want to know more about him. While Rand and his actions are the driving force behind the book, he doesn't appear frequently in this book. Perrin, Mat, Egwene, and Nynaeve are more in the spotlight. The young women are finally developing distinct personalities. That bodes well for the rest of the series.

Did I enjoy the book? Yes. And I will keep reading the series. So, this book is highly recommended for fans of the series. ( )

Lots of action. Not too much time which the characters that annoy me more. I enjoyed it. ( )
  eri_kars | Jul 10, 2022 |
Much better than the last book! The characters are developing well and they've accepted their fates to a certain degree. Mat in particular has become lots of fun to read.

Looking forward to continuing the series. ( )

Readable and worthwhile. ( )

Ágætis fantasía en dálítið langdregin. Jordan hefur búið til stóran hóp af persónum sem dreifast síðan um sagnaheiminn og sagan hoppar stöðugt á milli þeirra. Þessi aðferð hægir á framþróun sögunnar og hún verður því köflótt og slitrótt. Hins vegar er hann að fylla upp í lýsingar á veröldinni og maður verður bara að njóta lestursins án þess að gera sér nokkra von um að sagnabálkinum ljúki brátt af - enda entist honum ekki aldur til að klára hann.

Epigraph
And his paths shall be many, and who shall know his name, for he shall be born among us many times, in many guises, as he has been and ever will be, time without end. His coming shall be like the sharp edge of the plow, turning our lives in furrows from our of the places where we lie in our silence, The breaker of bonds; the forger of chains. The maker of futures; the unshaper of destiny.

--from Commentaries on the Prophecies of the Dragon,
by Jurith Doine, Right Hand to the Queen of Almoren,
742 AB, the Third Age
And it was written that no hand by his should wield the Sword held in the Stone, but he did draw it out, like fire in his hand, and his glory did burn the world. Thus did it begin. Thus do we sing his Rebirth. Thus do we sing the beginning.

--from Do'in Toldara te, Songs of the Last Age, Quarto Nine: The Legend of the Dragon Composed by Boanne, Songmistress at Taralan, the Fourth Age
