Now in development for TV!

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 centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of th Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of...Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages. …

Review from a Long-time fan (spoilers for previous books, none for this one)

4 stars

The Great Hunt improves enormously from The Eye of the World, but still has some issues.

Books 1 and 2 have always felt a little separated from the rest of the series to me. I have always said that there is a large tone shift in book 3, and that every character in book 3 feels different from the way they did in 1 and 2. Book 3's characterizations of all the main cast are the ones that he works with and builds on in the rest of the series, and I think for a few characters it's a bit jarring coming out of book 2 into their book 3 POVs (especially Mat).

But, the story in this book is VASTLY improved over book 1. There are still some pacing issues, but I think the story here is much more engaging and interesting than in book 1. There won't be …

Review of 'The Great Hunt (The Wheel of Time, Book 2)' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Overall, this was a good book. It's not as strong as The Eye of the World, but does a good job of continuing the story and setting up some interesting threads that we will want to see resolved in the series. The reluctant hero is a big part of this particular book, but we see some payoffs with epic scenes near the end that cement their role in the story. It is a must read for fans of The Wheel of Time as it sets the stage for more to come.

Loial = good

No rating

This book has a lot of Loial in it, which is good because Loial is great and Ogier are great and if I could just have a Wheel of Time spinoff series about Loial and other Ogier that would be great. When I was younger I recall this being my favorite book of the series because it's adventure after adventure after adventure, and also it has a lot of Loial, have I mentioned that I like Loial a lot?

Like Eye of the World, I finished this one weeks ago as well, and apparently all I remember is Loial. The small-town teens turned adventurers are still bad at communicating and in denial about what they are and the boys hate being reminded that they are ta'veren whose fates are guided by the Pattern and who twist the Pattern around themselves whether they like it or not. But Loial loves to …
