Publisher's Summary

Now an original series starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!

In The Dragon Reborn, the third novel in Robert Jordan’s number one New York Times best-selling epic fantasy series, The Wheel of Time®, Rand al’Thor undertakes a journey to prove himself worthy of being the Champion of Light.

Winter has stopped the war - almost - yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he?

Rand al’Thor has been proclaimed the Dragon Reborn. Traveling to the great fortress known as the Stone of Tear, he plans to find the sword Callandor, which can only be wielded by the Champion of Light, and discover if he truly is destined to battle The Dark One. Following Rand, Moiraine and their friends battle Darkhounds on the hunt, hoping they reach the Heart of the Stone in time for the next great test awaiting the Dragon Reborn.

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters. The last six books in series were all instant number one New York Times best sellers, and The Eye of the World was named one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read.

Featured Article: The Best Female Narrators You Can Listen To All Day


When considering a new audiobook, one of the biggest questions listeners have is whether they’ll enjoy the narration style. This is understandable as audiobooks span at least a few hours, and sticking with one person’s voice for that period can feel like a big commitment. Luckily, there are so many excellent voice actors performing audiobooks that you might just find yourself gravitating to certain audiobooks based solely on the narrator’s strength.

Great fantasy series

Fans of Brandon Sanderson will love this series by Robert Jordan's - you can see why Sanderson was the obvious choice to complete the series after Robert Jordan's death.

Robert Jordan's characters mature from wide-eyed innocents through to adults shaped by experiences both fascinating and horrifying. The world he created is full of varying cultures that are relatable, foreign and intriguing at the same time.

Michael Kramer and Kate Reading's performances delightfully bring the cast of characters to life and transport you to the world of the Dragon Reborn and his reluctant entourage.

This series is worth the time investment - I thought 14 books would be daunting to get through but I'm now approaching then end and am sad it has one!

Can’t get enough!

Once again Robert Jordan has captured my complete attention! I love that there are as many heroine’s as there are hero’s! Each character is very unique & the narrators do a fabulous job of voice changes & relaying the suspense as well as the humour. Bravo again! Highly recommended!

Title

I found Book three to be even better than one or two. All storylines in this book are very entertaining. Mat's luck is very interesting. Perrin's falcon is a fun new character. The three hunting for the black ajah is tense and engrossing.
I am actually glad Rand is not a main character. I remember having read this years ago and finding him to be a bit annoying. But at least there is finally growth in his character.
Unfortunately, Perrin takes on Rand's role (and continues his own) of whiner in this one. There is a ton of "I never asked for this" GoT Season 8 vibes throughout the series that continues into book three.
That said, the characters mostly begin to accept their roles in the story by the end.
I still do not understand the constant blaming of Moiraine for everything. Nynaeve should have by now moved past the thought that this is somehow all Moiraines fault just because she is the one who went to Emonds Field.

There are a few errors in the audiobook which surprised me because I'd never heard errors like this before. For example Kramer says something like, "Perrin was too tired and hungry to worry about being respectful. And too hungry too, he realized". The third word there should be "angry". In another part, he says Lan "decided" to move like a shadow during a fight. The word in the book is "seemed". He seemed to move like shadow. How does something like this get through editing?
Otherwise again expertly read by Kramer and Reading

A story for listening

I loved reading this series decades ago. To me, even better to head them told and by such excellent tellers.

Wonderful story

The end captivated me, as I’ve grown used to with these books. I can’t wait to start the next.

No dragon in the Dragon reborn

I’m speechless. Instead of telling the story of Rand, the titular Dragon, he is completely erased from the book, his story left to unfold “off screen” while we instead focus on a bunch of absolutely pointless side character random quests. Quests that appear to be important to the quest for the sword, but that, if removed, the outcome is exactly the same: moiraine gets beat ip as soon as she arrives, the 3 annoying girls fuck up one thing after another only to be rescued by Mat, and then be horrid bitches to him, and Perrin, at the end, just stays out of it to save his girlfriend I guess? Literally nothing the characters the book focuses on impacts the story of Rand picking up the sword and revealing himself the Dragon. And I can’t stress this enough: Rand is not in 95% the book. Only about 2 hours of this 30 some hour audiobook is relevant to the Wheel of Time overarching story. How in the hell Robert Jordan and this series are so well regarded is beyond me.
