But to wage his war Rand must find Callandor, ancient Sword of the Dragon . . . and the Forsaken will shatter the world to thwart him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dragon Reborn - Part 3 2 May 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another good read by Jordan but one not without its faults. The main character practically disappears from the entire book and I found the climax, bringing together 3 or 4 main plot lines to be disappointingly underdeveloped. That's not to say it's not enjoyable, but as Jordan spent 600 pages plus getting there, it seems peculiar that the story threads were cut short so suddenly! Rand proclaiming himself to be the Dragon Reborn is the ideal platform for Jordan's excellent desciptive narrative skills to come to the fore; instead we get a few lines, whereas 200 pages back we are fortunate enough to have almost an entire chapter on the workings of the White Tower's kitchens! (Perhaps a slight exaggeration!) This is perhaps something of a 'filler' book between the superior Book 2 -The Great Hunt, and Book 4 but in summary this remains a good book within a great series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! I want to read it again. 30 Nov. 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A fantastic read, previously rated 4 stars, I had to up it to 5 after this go through.

Let me start by saying I love this series. Ok, now that that's out of the way, let me tell you why I love The Dragon Reborn. For me, there are three main draws: Mat gets interesting, Perrin gets wolfish, and Elayne, Nynaeve and Egwene get into trouble. Oh, and don't even let me get started on the Aiel. Love the Aiel!

Mat has to be my favorite character in this series. He's the reluctant hero, the rogue. He's always been lucky and cocky, but in The Dragon Reborn, his luck starts going wild. He can't lose at games of chance and piles up an enormous wealth in a short time. But he's also caught in the Amyrlin's web. As the sounder of the Horn of Valere and as ta'veren, he finds his options limited more than most, but then again, his supernatural luck and the pull of the Dragon Reborn himself ensure that Mat does not stay caught for long.

Perrin, the quiet thinker among Rand's friends gets more of a spotlight in this book and he struggles against the call of the wolves, both in the waking and dreaming worlds. As he learns what little there is to know about his strange affinity to them, he begins to fear that he may lose himself entirely and actually become a wolf, in mind if not in body. This is also the book where the symbolic premonitions of Min concerning Perrin begin to become more clear. I won't go into any more details about that, but I will say it makes for an interesting read.

Meanwhile, Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve have returned to the White Tower in disgrace, everyone having thought they'd just run off. But despite spending a good deal of their days elbows deep in dishwater, the three find themselves on a dangerous quest, assigned by the Amyrlin herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 4 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This my favourite book of the series so far, simply because of what it means to the series. Rand al'Thor sets out on a quest to retrieve Callandor and thus prove to the world he is the true Dragon Reborn. It is also the first book to really deal with what it means to be ta'veren. The story follows Mat and Perrin on separate trails to Rand, but each lead to the same location in different ways, each pulling others along. It is obvious Jordan has thought about this interesting concept and fully explores it here.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Missed so much the first time I read it 26 July 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"The Dragon Reborn" is the third book in the saga "Wheel of Time", written by Robert Jordan, who unfortunely died in 2007. This book is one of the smallest of the series, having 620+ pages in the first time it was published and approximately 700 pages in this edition (just to know, the median number of pages per book is 800+).

This novel starts a few weeks/months after the Toman Head battle in "The Great Hunt". Except Egwene, Nynaeve, Elayne and Mat (who are in Tar Valon) the rest of the companions are in the Mountains of Mist being held back by Moiraine, because she is doing her thing (probably gathering information and waiting for the right moment to act). Soon after they get separated and spent most of time searching for a person or an object, and basically the whole group of them converge to Tear, a very big city in the south with a lot significance to the story. There's really not much to explain, because this book's story is no complication.

As in the two previous novels, Ba'alzamon and the Forsaken are gathering power and followers, making the work of the good guys harder and demanding a faster pace to the plot.

The first time I read the book, it was way to fast, so in a few months I forgot most of the details. There was one particular thing that kept nagging me, it is the sensation that Rand almost didn't appear in the book. Well, it isn't completely false but he appeared through the eyes of others, which gave a nice picture of precocious madness, suspicion and in the overall a white sheet turned black.

All in all I found "The Dragon Reborn" somewhat simplistic in its conception. That by itself is not a negative aspect and can in fact enhance the experience of the book (for readers of lighter fiction).

Recommend, if you liked the previous books.

Till next time,
M.I.T.H. (ManInsideTheHelm)
