Description

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 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" related some of these events, in compressed form; New Spring: The Novel tells the whole story.

    What can I say? This is a wonderful book. It originally began as a short story in a book of short stories with other authors (including Steven King) and was loved so much Mr. Jordan expanded on it. It was great to go back to the beginning and expand on things learned only later in the books. It fills out the back story and yet can be picked up and read by someone not familiar with the Wheel of Time universe. I always wanted to see more of the relationship between Moiraine and Siuan. A must read for fans of the series. See how it all began!

    I read this book two years ago. It was fast paced(no RJ normal style). It was a breath of fresh air to life. He brought to life heroes. The days we live I'm could use some heros. If you are a Jordan fan, then this is must have. Stop what you are doing.....go buy the book....settle back in a quiet place and return to the world we can only dream of. It will be worth your Time!
  • Great read

    New Spring provided details into The Wheel of Time that I had questions about for a while.
