The Forsaken are loose, the Horn of Valere has been found and the Dead are rising from their dreamless sleep. The Prophecies are being fulfilled – but Rand al’Thor, the shepherd the Aes Sedai have proclaimed as the Dragon Reborn, desperately seeks to escape his destiny.
Rand cannot run forever. With every passing day the Dark One grows in strength and strives to shatter his ancient prison, to break the Wheel, to bring an end to Time and sunder the weave of the Pattern.
And the Pattern demands the Dragon. (Goodreads)
My Rating: 5/5
As the second book in an epic fantasy series I was expecting a lot less. Many writers with only 3 or 4 books would make the second one so much worse than the first, however Jordan has continued with the same greatness.
Introducing more POV chapters and some hybrids really made this story feel fuller; there was more to this story than Rand and that was a relief. I look forward to continuing with this series. I have heard that even more POV characters are introduced and I’m looking forward to that!
