The Dragon Reborn

The Dragon Reborn. (Wheel of Time) Robert Jordan. 1991. Tor. 624 pages. 

The Dragon Reborn is the third book in the Wheel of Time fantasy series by Robert Jordan. The first book is The Eye of the World; the second book is The Great Hunt. I am continuing to love the series so far. The "hero" of the series, Rand, is a person of interest in this book, but not necessarily a major character. Rand who has recently declared himself to be the Dragon reborn--or allowed himself to be declared the Dragon reborn--has gone missing in this one, and that has many worried including Moiraine, Lan, Perrin, Nynaeve, Egwene, Elayne, Mat, and Loial, to name a few. Many journeys are undertaken in this one as everyone seeks to help their friend in his oh-so-dangerous journey. (There are many different groups traveling, many points of view in this one.)

I enjoyed many of the perspectives in this one. I especially liked reading about Egwene, Nynaeve, and Elayne. (They are still dealing with the events that happened in The Great Hunt.) Even if I didn't absolutely love each character, I still cared enough to keep reading. I found this book to be very connected to the Great Hunt, so it was great to read both books so close together. I think this one has a great pace to it. I loved the adventure, danger, and mystery.

Thanks for introducing me to this series. I love reading fantasy/adventure/mystery books. Since all these genre seem present in this book, I'll try to grab it.
