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.… (mer)

I cannot get enough of this series! ( )
  KrakenTamer | Oct 23, 2021 |
The best one yet, primarily because of Perrin and Mat. ( )
  Siki10 | Oct 20, 2021 |
One of the better sequels in this long running series. Particularly towards the end there is a great feeling of things coming together a little bit like the plot friend she might expect in something like an avengers film. This is high adventure and high fantasy done extremely well and I look forward to the next instalment. ( )

Til shade is gone,

til water is gone

Into the shadow with teeth bared

Screaming defiance with the last breath

To spit in Sightblinder’s eye on the Last Day.

Things are really moving now.

Throughout most of the series, Perrin is my favorite character. There are a few of his parts that could have been trimmed dramatically in latter books, but he's still the one I personally identify with most. While Rand is bound by duty and already cracking under the strain / the taint on Saidin and Matt seems to stumble into doing the right thing no matter what he tries, Perrin is, at heart, a good man. He's won't do the right thing at all costs (we see more than enough of that in the series), but he knows he cannot run from his fate. So he does what needs to be done.

On the downside, certain traits get ridiculously repetitive. Yes. Nynaeve pulls her braid. I got it. I got it the first hundred times she did it. I noticed it even when reading the series, but I think I filtered out the worst of it. Listening to it on audiobook, it jumps out all the more. On the other hand, we're getting more of the World of Dreams which is one of my favorite parts of the books. I like discovering it again as the characters do, while still knowing what's possible that they have not even yet dreamed about.

It's also interesting to see more of the Aes Sedai. They're turning from mysterious magical folks into something far more organized and political, which makes it all the more interesting. I prefer magic systems with an internal consistency and logic and we're really starting to see that fleshed out now. Also the introduction of more ter'angreal as magical technology from a more advanced age is fascinating--used by those who do not necessarily understand it, but useful nevertheless.

The way back will come but once. Be steadfast.

And then, that ending... A third battle with Ba’alzamon with something of a twist that turns this from what could have been a trilogy into the true epic it became. Rand fulfilling even more prophecies making it obvious to those in the know that he is the true Dragon Reborn. Quite the escalation of stakes! ( )

Book 3 of the Wheel of Time series. In the first book our heroes traveled to the north of the world, and in book two they headed west for the big battle. This time our heroes head off in separate stories and meander around before meeting up for the finale in Tear, at the southern end of the world.
Rand is now known by many as The Dragon, and we're introduced to a new prophecy in which the Dragon is able to remove a magic sword from Tear that nobody else is able to even touch- pretty derivative of the Arthur 'Sword in the Stone' story. After a winter hiding out in the mountains, we join Rand and the Shienarians along with Moraine and Lan and Perrin and the Ogier as Rand gets itchy and decides to move out and head to Tear, following dreams of the sword. Meanwhile, Mat is being healed in Tar Valon but hates being there, and Egwene, Elayne, and Nynaeve are being brought into a new conspiracy by the Amerlyn Seat to try to identify the Black Ajahs who have betrayed the Aes Sedae and serve the Dark One. Everyone heads off one way or another and heads for Tear, where of course danger ensues along the way.

As I noted in my review of book 2, I have an issue with the Plot Armor on all of our heroes- I never worry anyone important is going to perish, so they don't feel in true danger. And the books are seeming formulaic more generally, in that each one involves lengthy journeys from one end of the world to the other, building to a Big Battle (TM) at the end. SPOILER ALERT (but not really if you're used to the formula): Rand is victorious in the Battle but of course Ba'alzamon is not really defeated and the cycle will just continue. It's getting a little silly to have the main Bad Guy and his henchmen ("The Forsaken") always taunting Rand as the battle begins, when by now they ought to know this won't end well for them.

The books are just over-written. They all run 600-700 pages, and are padded with unnecessary detours. Each one could be 300-400 pages quite easily and not lose anything. And then I'm starting to get the sense that the series as a whole is over-plotted; I mean, how many big, apparently "final" battles can you have where the good guy wins and the bad guy escapes?

But I still give the book 3 stars- Turner keeps adding new magic ideas, and the world is cool and well-conceived. He adds a character in this book, a woman who joins Perrin and seems destined to play a big role going forward (though she doesn't do much of import here).

Still, reading this series is a bit exhausting. I think I'm out for a while, maybe to pick it up again later. ( )

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
