Book Description

Mar 2001 Wheel of Time (Book 2)

The second book in Robert Jordan's internationally bestselling epic fantasy series, THE WHEEL OF TIME, now reissued with a stunning new cover design.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wheel weaves as the wheel wills... 22 Aug 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is a good book. I came to this after really enjoying the first book, 'Eye of the World.' I liked this one just as much and it continues the story in great style.
Jordan continues to develop the characters in this book and gives greater detail of their personalities. The story is lso revealed more as we begin to see more of what we must expect from the later part of the series.
Jordan manages to bring in a new enemy that is not really known in the first book and so manages to keep the plot fresh andinteresting. More is revealed about the prophisies that are hinted at in the first book and we also gain more knowledge on the mysterious and powerful Aes Sedai.
On that note i am also pleased to say we get our first look inside Tar Valon in this book. We get to get inside the minds of some of the Aes Sedai and learn more about what they have planned for the characters of the first book.
More characters are also revealed that forward the plot. These characters such as the Amyrlin Seat and the borderlands people.
The good thing about this series is that you cannot predict or even guess randomly at the ending or how the series will reach the last battle. I have read this in other reviews and i think it is a very good thing. You know Rand will win the last battle but no clue is given as to how it will happen or how he will get there.
This book is highly reccomened, but if you have already read the first book you will read this one anyway. If you haven't read 'Eye of the World' yet dont read this as you will not have a clue what is going on!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good sequel, if not as good as the first! 16 Oct 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Now finished reading the second of the books, The Great Hunt, I will now review what I read. The Great Hunt is indeed a great book, but doesn't act like an introduction that The Eye of the World was. It acts more as a continuation to what previously occured, with new events happening along the way to challenge the characters. Rand, Mat, Perrin and co, along with some fresh characters like Hurin the sniffer are all still individual and themselves like from the first book and are allowed to shine in their own ways once again, especially with Egwene and Nynaeve who are used much more in the book then they were before. The book starts with the disappearance of the Horn of Valere, stolen from the Amrylin Seat of the Aes Sedai and taken by Darkfriends, led by one you will remember from the first book. In hot pursuit, Rand and co must retrieve the Horn, as well as the dagger that Mat needs until he reaches Tar Valon. Of course this leaves a dilemma for Mat, which continues through the book nicely. The Ways are also brought back into it, plus a new method of transport that seems to lag through the book a little bit, diverting Rand away from where he should be going by travelling via the stones, which can transport him to other worlds and to other places in the world. New fresh places are also explored, including Tar Valon, yet we don't see a lot of them as the plot drives the characters on their journey. But by the end, coincidence of character's meeting seems to take over, or is it just ta'avern that Loial is always talking about? Whatever it is, Robert Jordan writes it to good effect and makes another great ending and the start to the third book, which I have not yet read but will do for definite. Once you're to this point there's no turning back! The Wheel of Time is indeed still turning...

Format:Mass Market Paperback
After the breath taking suspense of the first, I was expecting something a little more explosive. It was still a brilliant fantasy, told in the Grandmaster style, that Jordan encompasses, it was more the slow build up followed by the remoresless race to the finish, I am constantly amazed how Jordan manages to fit in these tight fifty page endings. Maybe he should spread it out a little more?
However it was still excellent. The introduction of the Seanchan made the usual collection of Ghoulies a litle more human and easier to palate. The time spent in Tar Valon was intriguing and I desperately wanted these scant chapters to last longer!! The capture of the heroine Egwene was only just bearable by the fact that I was sure there was going to be a climatic finale. Egwene continued to moan and scream, on and on and on...
Rand is doing a 'Garion' (for all you Eddings fans!) by moaning constantly, however, he is a better realised hero than the One of David eddings imagination. Mat and Perrin were to stuck up in parts but other than that it worked wonderfully. the description flowed brilliantly in every superbly crafted sntence and the other characters were just as brilliantly described as Rand. Loial was innocent and wise enough to pass for Merry and Gandalf and Moiranes cool control was masterful, Lan is halfway between being my favourite character and my most hated. His protection of Moirane, though totally in character is just a teensy bit annoying, his cold calculating fighting and firm pride balances this out.
One word to sum this up. As Ron Manager would put it: Marvellous!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unexpected Turn of Events 28 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Introducing a new enemy out of left field in just the second volume of a series is a bit of an odd move, but Jordan pulls it off. As with the Children of the Light in the first book, the Seanchan are all the more imposing because they think they are right and believe themselves to be the good guys. There is of course the matter that, legally, their claim to our heroes' homeland is justified and that they could unify the world for the Last Battle more effectively than anyone else. The fact that they believe in slavery and summary execution of course means they have to be opposed. Congratulations to Jordan for making his world a bigger place and coming up with such an inventive enemy. Elsewhere in the plot new characters appear, old ones have new adventures and we visit Tar Valon for the first time. As an adventure story, The Great Hunt is superb entertainment and the number of ideas it throws at the reader is impressive, but never overwhelming. The Great Hunt picks up the pace from The Eye of the World and keeps it running to a breathless climax.
