Reviews

As the seals of the Dark One's prison continue to weaken, Rand al'Thor struggles to master the madness-tainted power that marks him as the Dragon Reborn. At the same time, his friends and companions become caught up in the roles laid out for them by the Web of Destiny. Though it borrows from a multitude of legendary and literary fantasy sources, Jordan's multivolume series continues to exhibit a freshness that makes it a welcome addition to any library's fantasy collection.

Jordan continues his Wheel of Time saga (after The Eye of the World and The Great Hunt ). Three thousand years ago the Dragon led the male mages of the world into entrapping the Dark One, but the cost was high: all male mages, then and thereafter, were driven mad. Now the Dark One is breaking free, and the only salvation may come through Rand al'Thor who may be a reincarnation of the Dragon and who must obtain the sword Callandor, held in the city of Tear. All of Rand's companions from the previous books find themselves, willing or not, moving toward Tear for a confrontation with evil traps. Jordan's fast and absorbing adventure novel will keep the reader too entranced to worry about plot inconsistencies, numerous coincidences, lack of character development and Rand's inexplicably infrequent appearances. As light fantasy, however, it proves an enjoyable diversion. (Nov.)

Rand now has his mojo going on. Therefore, he thinks he has a shot at doing over one of the demon lord types.

Along with Moraine, he travels to Tear, because, well, a magic sword never hurt anyone's credibility if you draw it in a big showy stunt and win a fight, even with help.

This allows him to start establishing a serious political power base.

This is a good book. By now, if you’re read the first couple, you might be beginning to flag. Keep going – it gets better. Admittedly then it gets worse for another five books, but then it gets better again, and then it gets REALLY good with Knife of Dreams. You can do it – just set aside a lot of time and possibly a pen and paper to record where all the characters have gone.

Many people have raved about this series- frankly, I have no idea what all the excitement is about. I just couldn’t wait to put the book down. The characters are boring, unrealistic, and the world itself simply does not have the strength to suspend disbelief as it should. If you want fantasy go for Feist or Eddings- pass Robert Jordan by.
