    355 starsNot much actually happened in The Dragon Reborn but it was engaging than the previous two books The Dragon Reborn is the third book in The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan The title of this novel may be The Dragon Reborn this title implies that Rand will take the central role again but the main characters of this book were actually Mat Perrin and Egwene If I’m not mistaken Rand has only like three or four small POV chapters This doesn’t mean that Rand wasn’t important to the main story the storyline still heavily revolved around himPicture The Dragon Reborn by Francesca RestaNow that I’m three books into the series let me just say that Jordan is terribly slow in progressing his main story and the early books are supposedly some of Jordan’s finest works in the series; I haven’t reached the infamous dreadful book 7 10 If you cutcondensed the traveling sections of the first three books what you have is pretty much one book with no pacing issue; Jordan is that inefficient and repetitive That being said The Dragon Reborn was somehow the most engaging book so far Sure there was still repetition and same plot structure usage—started strong for the first 20% travel for 50 60% then closing with incredible final section—but I didn’t find myself struggling through the middle section as much as I did for the first two books I feel like Jordan has improved a lot in characterizations; I found Mat Perrin and Egwene to be sympathetic than before now Focusing the POV chapters to these three ended up being a great decision; it brings a lot of benefits rather than disadvantages First of all we get to read these important characters being developed further We also get to see their thoughts towards Rand other characters and the state of the worldpredicament they’re in Finally Rand was still thickheaded here and I don’t think I can withstand reading him being stubborn about accepting his destiny for another 700 pages for the third time in a row I get it he has valid reasons for being stubborn and reluctant and I do understand why he acted that way However just because I understand his reasons doesn’t mean that I would enjoy reading literally thousands of pages of him being angry and stubborn about something which he always ended up doing anyway “Should and would build no bridges” This was the first time where I started to realize just how insane Nynaeve’s braid tugging syndrome was Insane I mean it insane and ridiculous Not only she’s one of the most annoying female characters I’ve ever encountered and there are still 10 books left for her to get worse her existence relies dangerously on her tugging braid I can’t seem to understand why Jordan need to emphasize her braid tugging that much it was pointless and annoying; I think she’ll literally die if she doesn’t tug her braid No one in the world tugs their braid that fiercely and that much NO ONE “She jerked her braid so hard it hurt” standing applauseAs much as I enjoyed reading this installment I seriously feel like not a lot of important things have happened; the entirety of the three books so far could’ve been easily condensed into one book without losing matters of importance I’m giving the same 35 stars rating just like I did for the first two books In my opinion that’s not a good enough measurement for a series as massive as this Why am I continuing? I loved Sanderson’s adult fantasy works that much that I’m willing to push myself—or at least still attempt—to finish this series just to read Sanderson’s involvement in it Although I sounded negative and critical in this review let me clarify that it wasn’t because it’s a bad book The Dragon Reborn was the least boring installment so far I just feel disappointed that a lot of the superb parts of the series so far were constantly diminished unnecessarily due to pacing issue and repetitiveness I’ve heard a lot of amazing things about the next book of the series The Shadow Rising here’s hoping that it will finally break or at least reached my 4 stars rating barrier You can order the book from Book Depository Free shipping You can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions

    This was a hugely important book for me This is a fourteen book series and after the last book I was practically ready to stop reading it I had to have a six month reading break because I was that frustrated with it I thought that Rand was characterised horrendously and I felt that he regressed to an early state All in all Robert Jordan had gone backward in his character development of his hero So this book had to win me over to keep me readingAnd it did It so bloody well did My faith in the author has been completely restored Yay Rand is still the same heroic coward but this time his actions actually corresponded with the events When he ran he had reason to do so He also had very few point of view chapters He is still the centre of the story but its telling is given over to much interesting characters like Mat Nynaeve and my personal favourite Perrin So let’s starts with the best character He has the heart of a wolf The book opens with Perrin It’s still very early days but he is one of the only characters I actually have sympathy for His confidence has developed even further When he taps the ancient magic that allows him to communicate with wolves they run to his aid and welcome him as leader of their pack This is a worthy boon for the young warrior but it doesn’t come without its problems The ability alters his mind; it makes him feral as the wolfish thoughts dominate his human senses He knows the danger of the ability; thus he suppresses it and controls it I find his part of the story completely fascinating because he boarders on edges of remaining noble and good or loosing himself to animalistic savagery Moraine was silent for a time warming her hands Finally she spoke whilst staring into the flames ‘The Creator is good Perrin The Farther of Lies is evil The Pattern of Age the Age Lace itself is neither The pattern is what is The Wheel of Time weaves all lives into the Pattern all actions A Pattern that is all one colour is no pattern For the Pattern of an age good and ill are the warp and the woof’Moreover in this bleak and dark world that Jordan has created Perrin is one of the few with a pure heart which makes his inner darkness even complex Like Rand and Mat he wants to hang up his weapons and go home; he wants to forget about the long and hard task the wheel has set for him but he knows what he must do He knows that he cannot run; he knows that he cannot escape fate So he grits his teeth and gets on with his duty After all he will have an important part to play in defeating the darkness He is too honourable to shirk from what he must perform I can see him eventually becoming the rock that holds the trio together He is a well rounded character that is reliable and strong I just know that he will have the courage to insure that his friends succeed even if he has to drag them to their destiny Finally some decent female characters Admittedly for the first time in this series I actually enjoyed the female side of the story Previously it seemed like Jordan could only write females in one way; they were all confrontational moody hot headed physically attractive and at times even uite spiteful It was beginning to get a little bit ridiculous; it was like he somehow naively perceived that all women have this same archetypal personality This was regardless of their social standing or life experience All the female characters were basically the same misogynistic reused stereotype Thankfully and at long last Jordan’s women are actually developing their own sense of individualism It took him long enough to get there now they're finally out of the tower Well anyway the girls are coming into there own Nynaeve has had heaps of character development She’s learning to wield her magic to deadly affect but she still hasn’t uite figured how to activate it properly She can only use it when in a state of pure agitation and anger It responds to rage and rage only When it is eventually unleashed it is powerful to behold but not controlled She’s a strong character and a very strong woman She’s uickly become the leader of the naïve Egwene and the inexperienced Elayne She has the experience and the wisdom see what I did there? to lead them in their hunt for the twisted Black Ajah It was great to see these characters have their own fully developed side story that eventually linked back to the main plot And the same is true for the cunning Mat Every perfect fantasy story needs it rouge Mat has also come along way He’s recovered from his illness though there is still some degree of taint in his heart He has memories that are not his own It will be interesting to see how this develops in later books as the true origin of his luck will hopefully be revealed The two are clearly connected and intertwined He is a strong character one who is developing faster than he can handle He’s already killed countless men which is something he would never have thought himself capable He has the danger of becoming numb to it as many fall to his agile wielding of his uarter staff This was a really good book and I’m so glad I’m actually looking forward to reading the next one The side characters really make this series worthwhile If you ignore Rand like I‘m trying to do you will see how complex and versatile these other characters are Their stories are much interesting on every level The world is also rich in opposing culture and beliefs I like the way the “forces of good” are divided and mistrusting of each other The Children of the Light are potentially morally right but they are misguided and confused as to what is actually evil Their ethos is right though they just execute it in a roundabout way It will be interesting to see if they become pawns of the dark one or see the error of their ways I love these conflicting ideas So for me this series remains in the realms of perfect fantasy At least at the moment Hopefully it will remain good to its end The Wheel of time 1 Eye of the World An unoriginal five stars2 The Great Hunt A reluctant three stars3 The Dragon Reborn A well developed 4 stars 4 The Shadow Rising A strong four stars5 The Fires of Heaven A slow two stars “Kill a man who needs killing and sometimes others pay for it The uestion is was it worth doing it anyway? There's always a balance you know Good and evil Light and Shadow We would not be human if there wasn't a balance”

    DNF 30 ar Wheel of time I am breaking up with youThis wasn't easy decision as I don't like to leave things unfinishedMy friends keep on telling me how great you are and that I should give you another chance but I think that this relationship has already taken too much of my time and I just can't look past your snail pace and many obnoxious charactersWe definitively had our good moments but every time we are together I keep thinking about other series and keep glancing on other books on my shelf and that is not how relationship between reader and book should beCall me old fashioned but I believe book should hold the reader tight and make him forget about other books until the last page is doneI am sure you will find devoted reader who will adore you and maybe our paths well cross again and we continue from where we left but I just can't see it happening anytime soon

    3716 WoT #3 buddy reread in BBB I'm thinking I might read it again just bc LOVE it Reviewed by Rabid ReadsNOTICE this reread is in preparation for finally biting the bullet and reading book 14 That means I HAVE NOT read book 14 yet Please be mindful of this in the comments both for me and for others who may or may not have progressed past this point in the series Thank you The Dragon Reborn is where things really start getting good PLEASE NOTE that I am speaking strictly from the REREAD perspective If you have never read the series before the first two books are spectacular Spectacular x5 even It's only knowing what's coming and being impatient to get to the even better parts that makes books 1 and 2 merely enjoyable when compared to the depth of imagination and interconnectedness as the series progressesBUT All of that epicness must have a solid foundation on which to buildAnd book #3 is still very much a part of that early foundation laying process However TWO very important things happen in this installment and those two things make all the difference1 Mat is healed from the taint of the Shadar Logoth dagger2 Perrin meets FaileI don't know if prior to book 3 Mat was part of Jordan's character growth process or if he just got bored with the character I certainly found the early version to be tiresome but when Mat wakes from being Healed in Tar Valon he's almost a completely different person Oh he's still a rascal but no longer a rascal of the juvenile variety Instead he becomes that kind of clever scalawag rogue type character who has always been one of my personal favorites In another life HA he would have made an excellent pirateIt's the difference between telling a couple of younger boys a story about ghost hounds then covering a few dogs in flour and loosing them on the village green and betting Galad and Gawyn that he can beat them his uarterstaff against their two swords both bc he needs the money to finance his escape and also bc it would be funThen there's Faile A lot of WoT fans aren't particularly fond of Faile and maybe I'll change my mind after rereading some of the later installments but I doubt itI just like herFirstly she's Saldaean which is my second favorite people group after the Aiel Almost all of the drama in her relationship with Perrin can be attributed to her nationality and where others are simply exhausted by her and her antics I chalk it up to cultural differences legit cause for misunderstandingsAnd when she's not behaving in what a non Saldaean would consider a ridiculous manner her interactions with Perrin are positively delightful; I am full of delightHer appearance is also the first concrete manifestation with long term conseuences of one of Min's Viewings So yeah those two things are where I turn the corner and stop fighting the urge to skim things I've read numerous times beforeThis book is also where the Forsaken start to become real characters instead of flat boogiemen type shapes In The Eye of the World we learned nothing beyond the fact that some of them were no longer imprisoned and that there were two fewer of them in world In The Great Hunt the information was limited to Lanfear But in The Dragon Reborn we not only learn about Lanfear we also meet at least three others and some of the mystery surrounding Ba’alzamon is not revealed per se but I definitely felt I understood what the situation was by the time I finished the book And anytime we learn anything about the Age of Legends whence the Forsaken came I am a happy camperBasically I loved it PS is it just me or does Cover Dude bear a remarkable resemblance to Prince Harry?My other reviews for this series The Eye of the World Wheel of Time #1 by Robert Jordan The Great Hunt Wheel of Time #2 by Robert Jordan The Shadow Rising Wheel of Time #4 by Robert Jordan The Fires of Heaven Wheel of Time #5 by Robert Jordan Lord of Chaos Wheel of Time #6 by Robert Jordan A Crown of Swords Wheel of Time #7 by Robert Jordan The Path of Daggers Wheel of Time #8 by Robert Jordan Winter's Heart Wheel of Time #9 by Robert Jordan Crossroads of Twilight Wheel of Time #10 by Robert Jordan New Spring Wheel of Time #0 by Robert Jordan Highlightsview spoiler1 Mat HEALED WOOT2 Egwene's Accepted Test3 Mat with a uarterstaff vs Galad and Gawyn with swords Like a day after he'd been Healed EPIC One of my favorite scenes from the whole series4 FAILE5 Mat rescuing Nynaeve Egwene and Elayne6 He raised Callandor above his head Silver lightning crackled from the blade jagged streaks arching toward the great dome above “Stop” he shouted The fighting ceased; men stared at him in wonder over black veils from beneath the rims of round helmets “I am Rand al’Thor” he called so his voice rang through the chamber “I am the Dragon Reborn” Callandor shone in his grasp One by one veiled men and helmeted they knelt to him crying “The Dragon is Reborn The Dragon is Reborn” hide spoiler

  5. Dana Ilie Dana Ilie says:

    The third book in the series is a bit strange in my opinion It draws away from Rand who I firmly believe is the main character despite the infinitely large castThe book instead follows the various subgroups that are in a uest to follow Rand and his path of destruction whether they know it or notMat finally gets a POV chapter and stops sucking and starts being a fount of pure unadulterated awesome Perrin stops mid story to do a little blacksmithing; central to Perrin’s character He’s a born craftsman forced into the role of a warrior

  6. Em Lost In Books Em Lost In Books says:

    While this book is titled Dragon Reborn it definitely is not about Rand al’Thor as the title suggests This book paves way for Mat Perrin and Egwene to shine Mat Perrin Rand and Egwene all got their separate story arcs here as they all went their different ways in the start of the book Rand appeared only in 2 3 chapters So when Rand went in to Tear to take Callandor and put the rumours down for once and all; it was Mat Perrin and the girl gang Egwene Nynaeve Elyane who took the center stage here While the girls were good it was Perrin and Mat who won my heart in this book Both guys finally came out of Rand’s shadow and surprised me Perrin already holds a special place because of what he can do and let’s not forget wolves but Mat was the surprise package I hated Mat from Book 1 so I am shocked how much I liked him here He is witty trouble magnet not so brave he try his best to escape evildifficult situations but view spoiler when he went into the tower to save the girls hide spoiler

    5 “Til shade is gonetil water is goneInto the shadow with teeth baredScreaming defiance with the last breathTo spit in Sightblinder’s eye on the Last Day”― Robert Jordan The Dragon Reborn An amazing continuation of this epic series I can not help but keep falling deeper and deeper in love with everything about it Writing a review the way I fan girl over this series is absolutely worthless I have no objectivity left and honestly attempting to describe this intricate and complex plot seems to me an insurmountable task “Heart of the Dark Ba’alzamon Name hidden within name shrouded by name Secret buried within secret cloaked by secret Betrayer of Hope Ishamael betrays all hope Truth burns and sears Hope fails before truth A lie is our shield Who can stand against the Heart of the Dark? Who can face the Betrayer of Hope? Soul of shadow Soul of the Shadow he is—”― Robert Jordan The Dragon Reborn If you are even slightly interested in the genre of Classic Fantasy or High uest Fantasy and I would say the restrictions of those labels are far outreached in this series this should be a MUST READ It starts slow but instead of boring it is entrancing with the masterful world building which unfolds natural in front of us And the characters are so animated and real that when away from the books you actually miss them Epic and entertaining Read it “Just because fate has chosen something for you instead of you choosing it for yourself doesn’t mean it has to be bad Even if it’s something you are sure you would never have chosen in a hundred years ‘Better ten days of love than years of regretting’ ” she uoted”― Robert Jordan The Dragon Reborn I wish you all Happy Reading and may you always find enrichment in the pages

    A very compelling continuation of The Wheel of Time series but not amazing as The Great huntThere’s a very interesting decision by Jordan to push Rand to the background so Mat and Perrin would shine in his absence and it worked very well In The Great Hunt I felt like Perrin barely had a focus on him in comparison to The Eye of The World and so as for Mat Mat had even less focus than Perrin in the first 2 books and both of them felt like nice additions to the cast but no than that In The Dragon Reborn it’s exactly the opposite as they have uite a lot of POV chapters where they could grow into interesting characters and their overall importance begins to emergeAs for the rest of the characters – there’s still focus on Nynaeve and Egwene both are really great characters and probably my favorites Elayne becomes a very important part of this trio and the three of them keep growing and developing as characters Moiraine and Lan were mostly in the background in book 2 but we see much of them here which is greatTo that pour some schemes by The Black Aja The Forsaken are keep steering things in the world and Ba’alzamon continues with his plans Oh and some ancient relicsWhat I really liked in this book is the development of the world building as we find out about the World of Dreams and Jordan even dabbled with parallel worlds ideas That add a lot of possibilities for the series to go in interesting directions As the series progresses it is evident that The Wheel of Time isn’t a formulaic generic fantasy which is great especially when considering when WoT was written All in all it’s a very good installment in the Wheel of Time series with very good character development fascinating world building and pretty good plotbut not as good as in book 24255

  10. Markus Markus says:

    The alarm gongs sent echoes crashing through the Stone but Rand paid no attention to them than he had to the roar that had come before like muffled thunder from somewhere below His side ached the old wound burned strained almost to tearing by the climb up the side of the fortress He gave the pain no heed either A crooked smile was fixed on his face a smile of anticipation and dread he could not have wiped away if he had wanted to It was close now What he had dreamed of CallandorRand al'Thor has finally and very reluctantly embraced his destiny as the Dragon Reborn after the events at Almoth Plain But his face is known throughout the nations now and he is hunted relentlessly by the numerous followers of the Shadow Thus begins a new journey and at its end lies the Stone of Tear the impregnable fortress of the Tairen in the far south The Dragon Reborn while not reaching the same level as The Eye of the World is certainly an improvement from The Great Hunt The story is compelling new villains arise and the childishness the completely unfounded arrogance and the insufferable stupidity of the main characters is finally starting to wear off But it is not gone Rand himself is barely appearing in this book and both Mat and Nynaeve seem to be improving considerably Perrin and Egwene however stand ready to assume the inglorious mantle of the worst charactersMostly though this book is a solid addition to the story of the Wheel of Time and the ending is great leaving the reader excited for the next volume The Shadow RisingThat's all there is to say really Those of you who have already read this knows what it is about And those who haven't yet should do so Wheel of Time reviews#1 The Eye of the World #2 The Great Hunt #3 The Dragon Reborn #4 The Shadow Rising #5 The Fires of Heaven #6 Lord of Chaos #7 A Crown of Swords #8 The Path of Daggers #9 Winter's Heart #10 Crossroads of Twilight #11 Knife of Dreams #12 The Gathering Storm #13 Towers of Midnight #14 A Memory of Light
