Now an original series starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!
In The Dragon Reborn, the third novel in Robert Jordan’s number one New York Times best-selling epic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time, Rand al’Thor undertakes a journey to prove himself worthy of being the Champion of Light.
Winter has stopped the war - almost - yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he?
Rand al’Thor has been proclaimed the Dragon Reborn. Traveling to the great fortress known as the Stone of Tear, he plans to find the sword Callandor, which can only be wielded by the Champion of Light, and discover if he truly is destined to battle The Dark One. Following Rand, Moiraine and their friends battle Darkhounds on the hunt, hoping they reach the Heart of the Stone in time for the next great test awaiting the Dragon Reborn.
Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters. The last six books in series were all instant number one New York Times best sellers, and The Eye of the World was named one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read.

Währenddessen begeben sich Nynaeve, Egwene und Elayne auf den Weg nach Tar Valon, um Mat endlich aus den Fängen des verfluchten Dolches zu befreien und dem Amyrlin Seat Bericht von den Schwarzen Aes Sedai zu erstatten. Doch der Amyrlin Seat will, aus Mangel von Alternativen, die drei jungen Frauen selbst dazu nutzen, Jagd auf die Schwarzen Aes Sedai zu machen. Die Spuren führen dabei zur Küstenstadt Tear...
Das Rad der Zeit dreht sich weiter und geht mittlerweile in die 3. Runde. Robert Jordan bleibt bei dem Erfolgsrezept seiner Vorgängerbände und entführt den Leser ein erneutes Mal in seine Fantasywelt, zeigt ihm fremde Orte, exotische Kulturen, geheimnisvolle Organisationen, verschiedene Gilden, belebte Städte, etc. und lässt ihn an der Seite seiner Helden gegen Menschen und Monster kämpfen. Es kommen einige neue Aspekte hinzu, während andere Dinge, wie beispielsweise die Schwarzen Aes Sedai oder die mystischen Forsaken, genauer beleuchtet werden.
Erfreulich ist außerdem, dass Protagonisten, wie Perrin oder Mat, die im zweiten Teil etwas untergegangen sind, deutlich mehr Spielraum bekommen und sich so ein ganzes Stück weiterentwickeln. Auch die Ausbildung der drei Aes Sedai Lehrlinge Nynaeve, Egwene und Elayne schreitet voran, weswegen diese ebenfalls einen deutlichen Entwicklungssprung durchmachen. Überraschenderweise rückt der namensgebende, wiedergeborene Drache Rand in diesem Band stark in den Hintergrund.
Wem die Vorgänger also schon gefallen haben, den wird auch "The Dragon Reborn" nicht enttäuschen, wobei mir persönlich dieser Teil etwas schwächer vorgekommen ist, wie die beiden Vorgänger. Dennoch macht es auch weiterhin Spaß, mit seinen liebgewonnenen Charakteren durch Jordans Fantasylandschaften zu ziehen und dabei alle möglichen Abenteuer zu bestehen. Für Fans der Vörgänger gibt es deswegen die volle Kaufempfehlung.
Personally, I found the intrigue at Tar Valon during the first half of the book rather interesting however Robert Jordan decides to scrap it abruptly and follow a plot similar to the one in the Great Hunt with our leading characters split up into groups taking on their own quests which eventually lead to a specific location where Rand has a near repeat of the ending of the second book. Additionally, there are some plot holes here and there; the gleeman has been turned into a serendipitous tag-alone character and our newly Accepted Egwene, Nynaeve, and Elayne have a Mary Sue-esque feel to them.
In general, the book in terms of quality is what you got in the Great Hunt so if you liked that book you might like this one too.
And this? The title of this book is "The Dragon Reborn" but said character has almost *no* screen time? And I feel like the climax was a bit wasted.
Perrin's storyline felt kinda superfluous in the end, and that "trap" for Rand didn't even matter, really, because Mat did all the work. Oh, and I hate Faile. I liked Perrin's storyline before, he's such an interesting character, but since she's there now, I can't look forward to his parts anymore.
Also: Rand defeated the Dark One AGAIN?? Like it's always "this time I defeated him for good, and for sure", but then in the next book the author is like, "guess what: sike!"
I'm really sad. Book one was so good. SO GOOD that I comtemplated buying all 14 books at once. Luckily, I didn't do that. Won't be reading book 4
Ist also nur für Fantasy-Fans mit sehr langem Atem zu empfehlen.
The characters keep evolving, the storyline gets even more interesting and it's fantastically written.

So another Wheel of Time book! I knew this would be hard to summarise but I have gathered my favourite points and tried to be as detailed as possible. I will let you know when the spoiler-free part is done. If you think the world was big already, this book adds another tonne of stuff. It is genuinely amazing how all of it joins together into one big picture and I cannot even begin to think how Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordon satisfyingly finished such an expansive universe. Although this book is called The Dragon Reborn, I will say it isn’t heavily focused on Rand. This book however heavily develops the side characters. Matrim Cauthon, Nyaneve, Egwene, Perrin and Morraine in particular are characters that develop a lot throughout the book. I know Mat is one of the favourite characters, many who have read only the first two books don’t understand why. However, there are plenty of moments with Mat in this book where I smiled or even laughed out loud. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is questioning to continue the series.
Now I am going into spoilers!
Tel’aran’rhiod- Amazing addition to Egwene’s character and also interesting the concept of dreamers. Egwene’s dream test similar to Nyaneve’s in the great hunt was awesome. In fact, I think this is a foreshadowing of many things to come, particularly the third dream. The ter’angreal Egwene was given to visit that world was an amazing addition. The dream world was an interesting addition especially with the unusual ways that it works. Egwene somehow found a way to bring real-life consequences to the Black Ajah in this book, which was a good use of the new power she wields. It also leaves us with the mystery of how it links with the wolf dreams. I look forward to seeing further use of this in later instalments.
Callandor- Rand didn’t use it for a lot in the book, but it was clearly really powerful. Literally has the power to level cities. So I most definitely look forward to its future use.
Black Ajah- Liandrin and the other members of the Black Ajah were a threat, particularly to these three newly accepted Aes Sedai. I think some people may have found the Egwene parts slow, I simply didn’t. I found all of this REALLY interesting. However, the Black Ajah wasn’t really in a lot of the book. So I look forward to seeing more of them in later books.
Matrim Cauthon- From the moment he is cured, his character flourishes. I love how he questions how far his tether of luck will take him. How he irritates everyone around him and gets away scot-free. He is a cheeky, extremely likeable character. It is such a relief that we finally get to experience him in all his glory now. His relationship with Thom Merrilin was particularly fun in this book. Thom was the serious mature character, as Mat made trouble everywhere he went.
Balefire- A really interesting power to add. It isn’t clear why it is forbidden, however, it is ridiculously powerful. I liked how Nyaneve used it without even realizing what she did. It also says a lot about Morraines character that she learned to use it despite it being a forbidden power. It is used three times in the book altogether and it was described so well.
Perrin and Faile/Zarine/Falcon- This to me personally was the slowest part of the book. These two are paired somehow and it is really interesting to see. However, not a lot actually happens with them in the book. It is more the arc of Perrin coming to accept her as a partner.
Greymen/Darkhounds or Shadowbrothers- AN AMAZING ADDITION TO THE SHADOWSPAWN. Darkhounds were more cannon fodder to the book, despite being a force to be reckoned with. They are definitely less so than Trollocs, but they are still that nonetheless. The Greymen are terrifying and can appear in the most random of places. They are such an interesting addition to the world that it feels wrong to include them in that cannon fodder category.
Forsaken: Be’lal, Ishamael, Lanfear, Sammael- The forsaken begin to take roles of Lords and rulers in this book. Sammael as a ruler of Illian, Be’lal as a lord of tear. Also, Lanfear is an ongoing threat throughout the book. Her meeting with Mat was interesting. It is interesting how she entices the selfish desires of the men. However, there wasn’t a lot of Lanfear in the book.
Ishamael! I really hope that wasn’t actually Ishamael! One of the most powerful forsaken, killed with complete ease by Rand at the end of the book. An incarnation of Shai’tan himself. I don’t want to believe they have killed him off in book three, I just somehow think it's true. I was disappointed with that.
Padan Fain- WHERE WAS HE? I missed this guy so much! It didn’t make the story any less bad… I just wanted more Padan Fain!
Conclusion- This is a really strong book in the series. I think it is the best out of the original three in terms of it’s sheer engagement factor. However, all of these books are 5 star rated to me so far. I am genuinely so excited to see what happens next! The world is getting bigger every second in all of this and I want it!
However, I like Jordan's writing style and its very immersive.
I will not be buying any more of this series
Throughout the book, though, the strongest ta'veren, main character and eponymous hero, Rand, does not appear much. I believe this is a good idea. The book is all about Rand and how he may affect the world, but by not having him there, he appears more alien and you end up feeling you've lost a friend in the same way Mat and Perrin have. It's a fantastic strategy. What it also does, is give the other characters time to shine. For the first time in the series, we get to see through the eyes of Mat, and find out he is quite honourable in his own way (if maybe a little selfish about it). Perrin gets an interesting story and finds another wolfbrother which makes him question his future with his ability.
Special mention has to go to one particular chapter though. 'The Hammer' may seem out of place at first, but in this chapter, occurring just before the climax, everything slows down as Perrin works at a forge for a day. Jordan goes off about the workings of the smithy and the intricacies in working with iron in great detail. He describes what Perrin is doing and why he's doing it. Perrin eventually forgets his troubles for a few hours; and for a few pages, so do we. It makes us feel for the life he's left behind and may never go back to.
This book doesn't end with an epic battle like the previous one, though there is fighting, but somehow it seems more epic due to fulfilment of many prophecies,
The Dragon IS reborn!
P.S. I do need to say this edition has a ton of errors in it, so many, that I would feel right in saying it has not been proofread. Most of the errors can be understood, though some are more difficult, often 'stern' is written as 'stem' and many other words where 'rn' is replaced by 'm' and vice versa. 'Ilyena' was once written as 'hyena' and it took me a while to realise what was meant then. But then there are others which I can't explain away. Occasionally some words were preceded by something completely random like the number 0. It could have let the reading down a bit, but these are things that are easily fixed if the editors can see their way to doing it.
