The Dragon Reborn

by Robert Jordan

Tor | May 29, 1997 | Hardcover

The Dragon Reborn is rated 4.8125 out of 5 by 16.

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 the Loial the Ogier. Bedeviled by dreams, Perrin is grappling with another deadly problem--how is her 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....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome this book is amazing, i notice a lot of similarities between the LOTR but that's all we can do. this book is stunning from cover to cover. it's one of those book that are like Steven Erickson's whereas you can not put it down, it keeps you up until late in the night just wondering what is going to happen after Mat throws the next hand of dice or what's going on with Perrin and Faile. i would recommend this to anyone who likes to read fantasy novels, but not to anyone who likes book with simple plots and few characters. other than that, this book was stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Dragon Reborn A great novel. A must read. Rand al'Thor has proved himself the Dragon Reborn by taking Callandor from the Heart of the Stone! The defeat of Be'lal and Ba'alzamon though I suspect that Ba'alzamon was really Ishamael the Betrayer of Hope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Wait To Read It!!!!! So far I have read The Eye of the World and The Great Hunt and they both KICKED ASSSSSSS! I hope The Dragon Reborn is as good. I think Rand is the best as the Dragon Reborn compared to a selfish little sheepherder

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOTR Wannabe!!! Just finished book 1 and 2. Does anyone else see the similarities between this and Lord of the Rings...Merry and Pippin to Mat and Perrin...sword that was broken...Gandalf and Aragorn (wizard and warrior king in hiding)...Moiraine and Lan (wizard and warrior king in exile. Those are just a few that I picked out immediately. Still it's a good story and I'm going to read chapter three.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jordon continues at a relentless pace! I found this volume to be totally absorbing. One of the more action packed so far. I polished it off in no time. Read, and become more addicted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great series, and it keeps on going! In short, this is one of the best series of books I have ever read. The author is able to describe the characters in such detail that if I should be walking down the street and pass one, I would recognize them! These books comprise a series that has few, if any, slow parts and keeps the momentum up to the current book. This book is one in a series that I anxiously await the next one. I can't stop reading these books until the final page, just ask my fiance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Very Addictive I couldn't put this book down!! As soon as I finished it I had to start the next one in the series. This book hooks you. Robert Jordan makes you want to help the characters. It makes you feel as if this is going on all around you.. WOW! Amazing..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from book of excellence Robert Jordan has a way of absorbing you into his world. The description of each character is done in such a way that you know the characters instead of being told about them. He is a fantastic writer and I cannot wait to finish his sequels.

Read from the Book

The Dragon Reborn  Robert JordanCHAPTER1 Waiting The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.Down long valleys the wind swept, valleys blue with morning mist hanging in the air, some forested with evergreens, some bare where grasses and wildflowers would soon spring up. It howled across half-buried ruins and broken monuments, all as forgotten as those who had built them. It moaned in the passes, weatherworn cuts between peaks capped with snow that never melted. Thick clouds clung to the mountaintops so that snow and white billows seemed one.In the lowlands winter was going or gone, yet here in the heights it held awhile, quilting the mountainsides with broad, white patches. Only evergreens clung to leaf or needle; all other branches stood bare, brown or gray against the rock and not yet quickened ground. There was no sound but the crisp rush of wind over snow and stone. The land seemed to be waiting. Waiting for something to burst.Sitting his horse just inside a thicket of leatherleaf and pine, Perrin Aybara shivered and tugged his fur-lined cloak closer, as close as he could with a longbow
