Description

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers and listeners around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.

The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

For three days battle has raged in the snow around the great city of Tar Valon. In the city, a Foretelling of the future is uttered. On the slopes of Dragonmount, the immense mountain that looms over the city, is born an infant prophesied to change the world. That child must be found before the forces of the Shadow have an opportunity to kill him. 

Moiraine Damodred, a young Accepted soon to be raised to Aes Sedai, and Lan Mandragoran, a soldier fighting in the battle, are set on paths that will bind their lives together. But those paths are filled with complications and dangers, for Moiraine, of the Royal House of Cairhien, whose king has just died, and Lan, considered the uncrowned king of a nation long dead, find their lives threatened by the plots of those seeking power. 

New Spring begins Moiraine and Lan's quest to find the Dragon Reborn that will lead to the events of The Eye of the World...and their fateful meeting with Rand al'Thor. 

New Spring is a perfect jumping-on point for fantasy listeners wanting to know more about The Wheel of Time and the forthcoming TV show.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"Jordan has come to dominate the world that Tolkien began to reveal." (The New York Times)

"Written with all the skill that has made Jordan one of the grand masters of fantasy." (Publishers Weekly 

"Both narrators handle complex roles with feeling and confidence, never losing the excitement and tension of the fast-moving story. The performers breathe emotion into their characters with an earnestness that holds listeners close and leaves them wanting more." (AudioFile)

DO NOT READ FIRST

Jordan says he wrote this novel to be able to stand alone, but it would be confusing if you don't know the Wheel of Time world. I read it seventh..though sixth would likely be enough to be familiar with the characters introduced. Jordan does a better job writing this than in some novels in the series - returning to more of an action-based plot. Kate Reading does the most narration (more female voice parts) and she and Michael Kramer continue to impress. This enjoyable prequel in the WoT series is worth 7.5 out of 10 stars

This is the last WoT book I had

I read this book after I finished the series and wish I would of read it before, a perfect prequel for my favourite book series. The wheel turns.

Difficult

I struggled to finish it, but that's just because I don't like politics. Trust me, it's really good.

Not as good as a mainline entry

For reference, I listened to this after finishing Fires of Heaven (book 5). New Spring is a novella and a prequel to the wheel of time, although I do not recommend reading prior to Eye of the World. I found the story to be lacking considerably. No real payoffs, very little excitement, just sort of meh. However it does give some interesting backstory to some favourite characters.

The story is mainly about Moraine and Siuan Sanche (not 100% on spelling) as well as Lan. I find that since Kate Reading does the majority of the narration here that it detracts from the characters a little bit. Listening to the POVs in this book reminds me heavily of Nynaeve POVs in the mainline books. I just thought that their characters were a little more different than that. I think that the story suffers because of Reading's narration (when normally it's fine). I can say that Michael Kramer's parts are still fantastic and even his portrayal or Moraine is preferable to me than Reading's....just seemed very jarring.

Overall you can skip this story unless you are a completionist. Although here's to hoping that I'm going to have some mega revelation that ties in with New Spring later on in the main story entries.

Less than expected

If you were expecting a book in which has the same scope of multiple characters, telling a thrilling and epic story, you will only be mildly disappointed.

The book set out and did it’s job, as it is a prequel to the series, setting up how the mentor characters Lan, and Moraine met.

Though I must confess I was expecting Tam Althor, I was expecting rands mother, I was expecting some chapters focusing on the aiel war, with the death of the king of carhieon, battles, and the like.

What we got was accepted Moraine, and Swan, becoming Aes Sadi, some bland white tower politics, the search for the dragon, a little bit of Lan, then finally a showdown with some dark friends.

In all honesty I was expecting the last chapter, or the epilogue to be the dragons birth.

Overall it was good but I feel like it could have been more.

Headline not optional

Good book, but was expecting more. Book is aimed at people who haven't read the series, so you really won't learn anything new.

love the series.

This is a great series and the narrators did an excellent job, but I can help thinking Graphic Audio would have made it even better.
