Official Summary: “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” – Goodreads

Review: I always struggle a bit with high fantasy books, always so much happening and so many names to remember which doesn’t help with being dyslexic. It is a relief when someone dies, then I don’t have to try and remember who they were. Or what they had done in the book. I made the mistake of listening to this book years after reading first. I did again struggle with remembering what happened in the first book.

I liked how it didn’t focus on one person, it switched between a lot of characters to give more layers to the whole story. It also made you excited to read their individual stories. I did not expect that ending, I knew the series was long so didn’t expect a confrontation of that degree so soon.

The fighting done was really good, I liked how the women fought there own way out of situations. It wasn’t here comes the men to rescue them. Can never go wrong with women kicking butt.
