Currently Reading: The Dragon Reborn (The Wheel of Time Book 3)

“It’s getting pretty epic”

Author: Robert Jordan

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Age: Adult

Released: 25th June 1992 (UK version)

I think I purchased this book way back, and only now have managed to bite into it. It’s hard getting into epic fantasy books recently, they just feel like too much work. The Wheel of Time series in particular, is so long that just looking the book seems to put me off. I eased myself into it one afternoon, and found myself back in this wonderful world.

I suppose there is no point in explaining the plot, because most people seem to be aware of what this series is about, and those who don’t would not want spoilers for the *third* book in the series. It’s hard to describe the direction of the plot in any case. At least the writing is surprisingly easy to read; I wouldn’t have pinned it down as something for older readers, but the sheer size of the each book will tell you differently. I will put up a review as soon as I can.

There is a short summary below from an official source.

Warning! May contain spoilers!
