The Dragon Reborn Summary (The wheel of Time series book 3)
From the Mountains of Mist to Tear
Rand al’Thor, having been declared the Dragon Reborn by Moiraine Damodred, secretly goes to Tear to prove himself. Along the way he is hunted by Darkhounds and Darkfriends. After leaving in secret, Moiraine, Lan Mandragoran, the Ogier Loial, and Perrin Aybara always follow one step behind. Rand leaves in his trail a pattern of weddings and strange events. Perrin comes across an Aiel warrior that was captured and in a cage. He frees him, earning a friendship with Gaul, a Stone Dog, who will accompany Perrin on his travels. This event is witnessed by a hunter of the horn, Zarine Bashere (alias Faile), who joins the party as well.
Min reports to the Amyrlin Seat, while Moiraine, Lan, Loial, Zarine and Perrin follow Rand. En route they battle Darkhounds, and discover that the Forsaken Sammael rules in Illian.
From Tar Valon to Tear
Mat Cauthon is taken to Tar Valon by Verin Mathwin, Nynaeve al’Meara, Egwene al’Vere, Elayne Trakand, and Hurin. Immediately after arrival in Tar Valon, Hurin departs to report to King Easar in Shienar. The Amyrlin Seat, Siuan Sanche, sets Nynaeve, Egwene, and later Elayne, to hunt down the Black Ajah, and therefore to Tear.
In the White Tower, through the use of a sa’angreal by Aes Sedai, Mat is healed of the corruptive influence of the ruby dagger of Shadar Logoth. Once healed Mat defeats Galad Damodred and Gawyn Trakand in a practice sword battle, using a quarterstaff. This wins him enough money to gamble with and purchase passage away from Tar Valon; at which he is approached by Nynaeve, Egwene and Elayne to deliver a letter to her mother Queen Morgase. Mat reunites with Thom Merrilin, and they together travel to Andor, where Mat delivers the letter and learns of a plot by Queen Morgase’s lover, Lord Gaebril, to murder Elayne. To prevent that murder, Mat pursues the killers to Tear.
Climax in the Stone of Tear
In Tear, Nynaeve, Egwene, and Elayne are betrayed by Juilin Sandar (under the influence of Liandrin) to the Black Ajah and imprisoned in the Stone of Tear, whence they are rescued by Mat and a repentant Juilin. Faile falls into a trap meant for Moiraine, and Perrin risks his life to rescue her. Rand and the Forsaken Be’lal duel in the Stone of Tear, until Moiraine kills Be’lal with balefire. Ba’alzamon disables Moiraine and attacks Rand, whereupon Rand takes Callandor (a more powerful sa’angreal), and apparently kills Ba’alzamon; but Moiraine argues that the Dark One, having no tangible body, is not represented by the dead man. Egwene, remembering a prophecy, instead deduces that the corpse is possibly Ishamael, Chief among the Forsaken. The Aiel in Tear conquer the Stone in loyalty to Rand.

Flawed But Good
Reviewed in the United States on November 23, 2019
The Wheel of Time Series is one of the most well-known fantasy series ever and I have finally gotten around to reading it. I must admit to some trepidation at this point though. Three books into the series, it has not been amazing so far. Don’t get me wrong, it has been good and at times very good but it has not reached the heights of the best fantasy series that I’ve read. This book in particular, was a bit underwhelming and had some significant flaws.
The book starts off slow and I mean VERY slow. Basically the whole first half of the book seems like an extended setup for what happens later. The second half of the book picks up and has far better pacing but this was not a particularly engaging novel. There are some very interesting plot developments and the world building continues to be outstanding in this series but, as a standalone book, The Dragon Reborn has issues.
For one, we don’t really follow Rand’s story that much in this book. That, in and of itself, would not be an issue if not for the fact that Rand is still the most important part of the conclusion of the book. So after not really having spent any time with Rand on this important part of his journey, we are all of a sudden (once again) thrust into this confrontation between him and The Dark One at the end. A confrontation that I am beginning to grow tired of, to be honest. There doesn’t seem to be any real consequence to these encounters and the author has literally ended 3 straight books with them.
Then we have the three Aes Sadai trainees; Egwene, Nynaeve and Elayne. For some reason, the author doesn’t seem to be able to actually depict any real training in the use of the One Power. There is a lot of talk about it and the three of them all are in Tar Valon to learn but instead they basically have to watch their backs and cannot trust any of the Aes Sadai at all. They are either fleeing for their lives or being punished and made to wash dishes. There is no training or real explanation of the use of their power. Not for them or for Rand. As such the use of magic becomes like a deus ex machina. It’s like an easy button. So far I find the magic system to be very poorly fleshed out.
Honestly Mat kind of saves the book. I never really liked his character before but this book offers a lot of character growth for him and he is also a much-needed dose of unpredictability.
Honestly, I’m at a bit of a crossroads with this series. I have mostly enjoyed reading it but it hasn’t really blown me away. Normally, I would just continue on now that I have read three books already but this is a 14 book series! For me to invest in reading that many books, I need to really love it. I have already purchased books 4 and 5 so I will read those no matter what. If, after I’ve read them, I feel no more engaged than I am now, that will be the end of the road for me.

Great story but
Reviewed in the United States on April 2, 2019
In some countries, the word “bloody” is a very bad swear word. Either way I find the repetition of swear words tasteless and distracting to a story. The swearing is so bad, and used by so many characters, its long lost its potency to emphasis altogether and ends up just plain being disgusting. Yes, people swear, but I feel if an author, as talented and this one, wants to appeal to a large group of readers, he shouldn’t turn readers off with so much obsessive, unnecessary language. It’s one of those times I wish I could highlight words in black to cover them. Then I could read the book without those words in it. The book would be shorter. Lol.
I also feel, after the third book, that the women, especially the main characters, are becoming too big for their britches. They are more and more rude and UNfeeling towards others as they come into their powers. These Aes Sedai women are sadly, too hard and mean, with a chip on their shoulders. Example: Mat risks his life to save them and they look at him in surprise and say, “What are you doing here?” and treat him like he did something offensively wrong. No sign of appreciation, or joy at seeing a good friend who could help, they demand why he is there and huff away with hard, mean stares. They explain nothing to him but are angry he does not understand , until he demands some info. They tend to promote more fear than respect and people cower. The women and men in this book are all too hard and alike. I can’t relate and would not like to be like them. I can see how being governed by the Aes Sedai might be a world with less joy and humor.

Immersive, unique and incredibly original
Reviewed in the United States on February 17, 2017
Love this series. Sick of every highly rated novel I pick up ending up being a young adult book. Jordan was a master storyteller. His style pulls you right into his rich world, and you’re pulled along and every which way as the story branches in different directions, then converges again, never losing track, always keeping you engaged. Truly masterfully woven. One thing I love is an author who creates new names that fit his world, as Jordan has done. The naming of the characters fit the regions they hail from in his world. If characters have names I’ve heard over and over in my own world, it seems to be a blaring indication that the author hasn’t much imagination, which usually reflects in an average, shallow story. Jordan is none of that. This book carries the story forward as well as the first and second, and I’m eager to begin devouring the fourth. The story is as strong in each volume as in the first. Highly recommended to serious readers.

I should learn by now that the more obtuse & unpronounceable the names of characters (apostrophes for everyone!), the more I’ll hate the book. I bought this trilogy and finished 1 1/8 books before deciding that I don’t care about a single piece of the story or characters.
Most of the story is a Tolkien ripoff; Aes Sedai = elves, Warders = Rangers, the young people = Hobbits, Trollocs = Orcs, Padan Fain = Golem, Shayol Ghul = Mordor, Myrddraal = Ring Wraiths. Oh & do you pronounce Myrddraal “murder all”? Soooo clever. The maps even look like Tolkien drew them!
It seems to take 50 pages to walk down a hallway. Phrases are repeated over and over. “Who is John Galt!” Just tedious.
And there are 12 of these?!? Ugh. Jordan is on my list of do not read.
