The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The third book in The Wheel of Time. Oh what a ride!
A lot of chapters from Perrin’s POV, Mat finally got not-annoying and Nynaeve continues to be the best female character. It was such a good book, but The Great Hunt is still my favourite.
It is very interesting to read about the main character but almost never have a chapter from his POV. Everything surrounds him, but you very seldom get to see what goes on inside his head, and when you do you are glad you don’t spend more time with him. All the other characters are much more enjoyable to read about, but you do want to know what’s happening to Rand. Jordan has done some excellent balancing of these factors in this book.
The story grows more and more complex, there are so many different story lines intertwining and I have no idea how he will tie everything up. And I have that feeling already after three books! 10 more books before the final novel. I just have to say, the final novel will have a lot to do.
The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.
