The Dragon Reborn Review

The Dragon Reborn—the leader long prophesied who will save the world, but in the saving destroy it; the savior who will run mad and kill all those dearest to him—is on the run from his destiny. Able to touch the One Power, but unable to control it, and with no one to teach him how—for no man has done it in three thousand years—Rand al’Thor knows only that he must face the Dark One. But how? Winter has stopped the war—almost—yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he? Perrin Aybara is in pursuit with Moiraine Sedai, her Warder Lan, and Loial the Ogier. Bedeviled by dreams, Perrin is grappling with another deadly problem—how is he to escape the loss of his own humanity? Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve are approaching Tar Valon, where Mat will be healed—if he lives until they arrive. But who will tell the Amyrlin their news—that the Black Ajah, long thought only a hideous rumor, is all too real? They cannot know that in Tar Valon far worse awaits… Ahead, for all of them, in the Heart of the Stone, lies the next great test of the Dragon reborn….

March Wrap Up 2020

I didn’t read many books this month. But I did get my first favourite and 5 star book this month which is great! I also continued my journey through the Wheel of Time series.

  • I had my first 5 star book of the year!
  • I had my first book to make it to my favourites list!
  • Continuing with my challenges, I read two of my sequels from my 2020 sequel challenge.
  • I read 3 books this month.
  • I read one high fantasy, one thriller and one historical murder mystery.
  • I read one ARC and I bought the other two earlier that month.

Rules for Perfect Murders – Peter Swanson (2 stars)

This story had a lot going for it but sadly the execution was lacking. Quite a lot of the plot just conveniently happened to the character he only starting taking control of the narrative about 3/4 into the story. Check out my more in depth review.

Closed Casket – Sophie Hannah (5 stars)

A book which managed to save the series for me. I was thinking of DNFing the series as a whole depending on this sequel and I was blown away. The strongest part of this novel is the highly layered and detailed characters! But the plot was also incredible!!!

The Great Hunt – Robert Jordan (5 stars)

A book full of powerful female characters, prophecy and action packed battle scenes. Going into this book I was worried I would not enjoy it as much as the first one but, thankfully, that was not the case at all! I recommend this series to any fantasy fan!!!

The Great Hunt Review

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 for ever. 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.
