A more focused and expansive book than the first, The Great Hunt does well to pull you into the whole bigger picture. But it still suffers from poor characterisation and some cringe comedy. While it does scale the series for greater heights, the ending is unfocused and feels a bit wasted. But for what it’s worth, Ran al’Thor’s conundrum feels more real. ( )

Amusingly, due to the library not having a copy of [b:The Eye of the World|228665|The Eye of the World (Wheel of Time, #1)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1337818095s/228665.jpg|2008238], the first two times I read the series, I actually started with [b:The Great Hunt|233649|The Great Hunt (Wheel of Time, #2)|Robert Jordan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1437870280s/233649.jpg|1574475]. While the Eye of the World could arguably stand alone (albeit with a somewhat unsatisfying feeling, given the sheer quantity of untapped potential in the world building), it's in the Great Hunt that things really start getting crazy.

Rand is just now starting to understand what being the Dragon Reborn could mean. Perrin has a connection to the wolves, something very old, come new again. Mat is still cursed by his dagger and yet he's the one to finally sound the Horn. You have the first hints of parallel universes and world hopping, along with the World of Dreams--which will turn out to be rather important to the universe all together--along with a few more Forsaken coming out of the woodwork. Lanfear... Lanfear proves that being loved by a power hungry hundred/thousand year old super powerful jealous woman can be... interesting.

And there's the Seanchan. I'd forgotten that they showed up just this soon. And seeing the One Power being used as a weapon in full after an entire book of people holding back. With an entire people absolutely convinced they are in the right to enslave everyone who can channel. Despite the final battle of the book where the Seanchan advance and retreat with Ba'alzamon, it's hard to see them as evil. Deadly, dangerous, and with some seriously morally corrupt traditions. But this is a world where true evil exists. The Seanchan... are not it.

A worthy sequel. As I finish each book, I immediately want to go on.

Another thing I'm noticing on yet another reread: the amount of foreshadowing in these books in intense. While some few things in early books changes by the end, there are a number of prophesies that become readily apparently only on a reread. Once you're done with all 4.4M words? Give it another go. Worth it. :) ( )

The plot thickens. Another superb novel with a nail biting ending. Getting started with the next book right away. ( )

I actually preferred the first book in the Wheel of Time series over this one, and neither were that great to me. It seemed like after the adventures in the first one, the characters started over in this book (I see why it was suggested I skip #1). The story had a few interesting parts -- the alternate lines for instance -- but was a small reference in a larger story of mostly waiting around and moving places. ( )

A very good sequel further developing the adventures of Rand, Perrin, and Matt. New characters, and some favourite old ones or join them to I have a continuation adventure very similar to the first, yet exciting, gripping, and revealing. New enemies, with people that aren’t what they seem this is an excellent sequel to the first book. ( )

And it shall come to pass that what men made shall be shattered, and the Shadow shall lie across the Pattern of the Age, and the Dark One shall once more lay his hand upon the world of man. Women shall weep and men quail as the nations of the earth are rent like rotting cloth. Neither shall anything stand nor abide... Yet one shall be born to face the Shadow, born once more as he was born before and shall be born again, time without end. The Dragon shall be Reborn, and there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth at his rebirth. In sackcloth and ashes shall he clothe the people, and he shall break the world again by his coming, tearing apart all ties that bind. Like the unfettered dawn shall he blind us, and burn us, yet shall the Dragon Reborn confront the Shadow at the Last Battle, and his blood shall give us the Light. Let tears flow, O ye people of the world. Weep for your salvation.

--From The Karaethon Cycles: The Prophecies of the Dragon,


as translated by Ellaine Marise'idin Alshinn,
Chief Librarian at the Court of Arafel,
in the Year of Grace 231 of the New Era, the Third Age
And men cried out to the Creator, saying, O Light of the Heavens, Light of the World, let the Promised One be born of the mountain, according to the Prophecies, as he was in Ages past and will be in Ages to come. Let the Prince of the Morning sing to the land that green things will grow and the valleys give forth lambs. Let the arm of the Lord of the Dawn shelter us from the Dark, and the great sword of justice defend us. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

--from Caral Drianaan te Calamon, The Cycle of the Dragon,
Author unknown, the Fourth Age

The man who called himself Bors, at least in this place, sneered at the low murmuring that rolled around the vaulted chamber like the soft gabble of geese.
