I remember when The Great Hunt was first released in mass-market paperback format. It was so thick that if you looked at it funny, the spine would break. Slowly, the pages would leaf out of the book, one by one. So yes, I got this on Kindle. No damaged spine!

The story progresses onward with some plot twists. The Seanchans' culture is fascinating in a sick, repulsive way. I can't wait to see how their interactions with others proceed. A reader does have to keep focused as this book has so many different paths it is following, with the main characters splitting up to go on separate quests. Still, I can't wait to see what happens next.

The series is highly recommended for fans of fantasy but must be read in order. ( )

Mikill sagnabálkur sem gerist í fantasíuheimi þar sem sagan endurtekur sig stöðugt með árhundraða millibili. Hið illa rís upp og reynir að ná völdum og það góða reynir að stöðva atburðarrásina.
Þessi bók segir frá leit hópi hetjanna að töfrahorni sem nota má í lokabardaganum til að kveða upp látnar hetjur til orrustu gegn óvininum.
Löng og ítarleg saga. ( )

The second book in the Wheel of Time. Just as well written as the first, meet friends new and old as you follow the main characters. They split and go their own ways, some willingly, others not so much. Witness magic, betrayal, and even a miracle as you follow along, or get dragged through this amazing story.

Will Nynaeve be accepted for training? Who will be Wisdom for Emond's Field? What will happen to Rand, Perrin, and Matt? Who will blow the horn? Who will they meet along the way? These and many more questions will keep you turning the pages long into the night. ( )

This is a reread as I originally read this book back when it came out. The Eye of the World set up this world, and The Great Hunt really starts the adventure. Rand is still struggling to reconcile his role, while Mat and Perrin are dealing with the changes they've undergone because of the dagger and being a wolfbrother. The girls are in the tower adjusting to becoming Aes Sedai while Moiraine and Lan are mostly out of sight. Mostly, it's the boys chasing Paidan Fain to retrieve the Horn of Valere and the dagger for Mat.
While a bit slow at the beginning, the story quickly hits its stride and we have epic battles, danger, monsters, and new cultures. We get lots of Lolial and some of a Stedding, meet some Aiel, and greet some old friends. Rand is drawn into the Great Game much to his dismay. There's Black Ajah and the Forsaken. I really disliked the character of Celene the first time I read this and I still don't like her. The book moves along at a good pace, with interesting details and worldbuilding. It's a thoroughly satisfying read. ( )

There was much in 'The Eye of the World' that was Jordan feeling his way through his epic. That he had much planned was obvious, but there were some key details that he wasn't sure about. He wrote it down to figure it out. 'The Great Hunt' still has some of that feel about it, but the plot is much more straight-forward and we really begin to see more of what fans would eventually call "Randland". Since that moment writers have scrambled to name their worlds and make it very clear what those names are.

I'm reading this again in honor of the television show that's airing now on the Evil Empire's streaming service. The show's not perfect, but eh. I'm stuck reading the entire series again (oh no!) even though it will be years before the show gets so far.

I don't know, what else is there to say? I enjoy the ride every time I read these. I always enjoy more time with Loial, and Verin is still my favorite Aes Sedai.

And it shall come to pass that what men made shall be shattered, and the Shadow shall lie across the Pattern of the Age, and the Dark One shall once more lay his hand upon the world of man. Women shall weep and men quail as the nations of the earth are rent like rotting cloth. Neither shall anything stand nor abide... Yet one shall be born to face the Shadow, born once more as he was born before and shall be born again, time without end. The Dragon shall be Reborn, and there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth at his rebirth. In sackcloth and ashes shall he clothe the people, and he shall break the world again by his coming, tearing apart all ties that bind. Like the unfettered dawn shall he blind us, and burn us, yet shall the Dragon Reborn confront the Shadow at the Last Battle, and his blood shall give us the Light. Let tears flow, O ye people of the world. Weep for your salvation.

--From The Karaethon Cycles: The Prophecies of the Dragon,


as translated by Ellaine Marise'idin Alshinn,
Chief Librarian at the Court of Arafel,
in the Year of Grace 231 of the New Era, the Third Age
And men cried out to the Creator, saying, O Light of the Heavens, Light of the World, let the Promised One be born of the mountain, according to the Prophecies, as he was in Ages past and will be in Ages to come. Let the Prince of the Morning sing to the land that green things will grow and the valleys give forth lambs. Let the arm of the Lord of the Dawn shelter us from the Dark, and the great sword of justice defend us. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

--from Caral Drianaan te Calamon, The Cycle of the Dragon,
Author unknown, the Fourth Age
