Beschreibung des Verlags
The third book in Robert Jordan's internationally bestselling epic fantasy series, THE WHEEL OF TIME, now reissued with a stunning new cover design.
The Land is One with the Dragon - and the Dragon is One with the Land
The Shadow lies across the Pattern of the Age, and the Dark One has turned all his power against the prison that binds him. If it fails he will escape and nothing will stand in the storm that blows then … save the man that was born to battle the darkness: Rand al’ Thor, the Dragon Reborn.
But to wage his war Rand must find Callandor, ancient Sword of the Dragon … and the Forsaken will shatter the world to thwart him.
Jordan continues his Wheel of Time saga (after The Eye of the World and The Great Hunt ). Three thousand years ago the Dragon led the male mages of the world into entrapping the Dark One, but the cost was high: all male mages, then and thereafter, were driven mad. Now the Dark One is breaking free, and the only salvation may come through Rand al'Thor who may be a reincarnation of the Dragon and who must obtain the sword Callandor, held in the city of Tear. All of Rand's companions from the previous books find themselves, willing or not, moving toward Tear for a confrontation with evil traps. Jordan's fast and absorbing adventure novel will keep the reader too entranced to worry about plot inconsistencies, numerous coincidences, lack of character development and Rand's inexplicably infrequent appearances. As light fantasy, however, it proves an enjoyable diversion.
Awesome book, but...
The books are a great story for every fantasy fan and I can suggest them - you will not be disappointed. A very deep story, with lots of characters, fantastic ideas and an immense world to discover. 14 books in total, thousands of pages and enough 'action' to last for months.
Why only three stars? The iBooks I have read so far (Book 1-3) are a mess. I am assuming that they were scanned from the original prints with some software - plenty of errors and bad spelling are the result. For the price of the eBook I am expecting at least someone to check the manuscript.
