- The Great Hunt
This was a solid continuation of the Wheel of Time Series, although I didn't find it quite as engaging as the first. This is possibly because a lot of time was spent developing characters and plotlines for the future, which was great because it added a lot of depth to some of the characters although others seemed to be largely ignored. There was plenty of action, but sometimes I found the book to drag slightly I first read this 27 years ago, and while I remembered the general storyline, I forgot the big climactic finish! The only thing that irked me a bit and as I remember, I was irked through all the books I managed to read in this series the first time is the main character's constant complaining about not wanting to have or use his powers.
I'm hoping he grows out of the complaining eventually!

Rarely does a sequel improve upon the first book. However, I feel that The Great Hunt may have even improved upon the first book in the series. It was filled with all the same things and both the world and characters received more development. The book centered on Rand and the journey of him coming to terms with his destiny. I kept waiting for him to finally accept who he is and it was almost frustrating watching him run away from his destiny. Nynaeve also was focused on some. I went from completely loathing her to actually kind of liking her. Some new characters were also introduced, while some from the first novel took more of a back seat Lan and Moiraine.
I wished there was a little more development from Mat, but he still the same annoying and useless character he was in the first book. And anything that seemed like able about him in The Eye of the World quickly became obnoxious.

I really wouldn't mind if he was killed off in the next book. But on the whole this book was really great and Robert Jordan fully discontented from the Lord of the Rings and created his own interesting world. I'm excited to read the rest of the series.

As with the other book, this is simply the continuation of the story. Jordan's works don't have the same feel as many series, where you get a distinct story each book. Instead, his books each feel like just another chapter in the story. High fantasy at its best! Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason.

Write a review. Most helpful positive review. The evil, twisted, prisoner Padan Fain , takes Mat's mysterious and powerful, but tainted, dagger, without which he would slowly die, as well as the Horn of Valere. In the wake of the attack, Rand has an audience with the Amyrlin Seat and is told that he is the Dragon Reborn. To track them, they enlist Hurin , a middle aged Shienaran with the strange ability to "smell" things that other people can't, such as being able to smell where there was a battle, even if there is no trace of it.
Using this sniffing ability, Hurin is able to follow the scent of their quarry across the land. However, it is not long before Rand, Loial, and Hurin are accidentally separated from the party and transported to another world via a portal stone that they unknowingly slept beside, and somehow activated. In the other world, Rand meets Ba'alzamon and has a heron branded into his palm in a fight.

Later, having determined that the portal stone transported them to a parallel world that essentially is the same but with a different timeline, they eventually find another portal stone with the help of Selene , a mysterious woman dressed in white whom they meet there. Rand is able to use it to return to their own world, albeit much farther ahead of the rest of their group and even the Darkfriends and Shadowspawn.
Shortly afterward, they recover the Horn and the dagger by sneaking into their enemy's camp, which they found simply by waiting for them to catch up. Ingtar's group had earlier been mystified and confused at the disappearance of Rand and the other two but they manage to continue tracking the Darkfriends, however, as Perrin pretends to be another sniffer like Hurin.
Secretly, he is using his wolf sense, his ability to talk to wolves, to ask nearby wolves which way the Darkfriends and Shadowspawn went.esportsify.org/the-norm-cube-collection-the-norm-dailies.php
The Great Hunt
Egwene and Nynaeve leave Fal Dara at the same time as Ingtar's party. They are visited by the Amyrlin and other Aes Sedai who give them lessons.
Their main concern, however, is to make questions about Rand, Mat and Perrin. At the White Tower , Egwene learns from Anaiya Sedai that she might be a Dreamer and Nynaeve passes the test to become Accepted by walking through three rings, each of which takes her to a vision that could deter her from going on and becoming an Aes Sedai.
The first ring transports her to a giant maze, where she battles a facsimile of Aginor , the Forsaken , and almost wins, but leaves the vision before finishing him. The next two of her visions are painful because she knows that they are also fake and she has to leave them, but she doesn't want to abandon them. One of those visions is of herself in her hometown, Emond's Field , which is in trouble and needs her help, but she has to leave the vision by leaving the village, which makes herself feel as if she truly had left Emond's Field to its fate.
Another vision is of herself in the future, married with children to the man she loves, Lan Mandragoran , but once again she must leave the vision by running away from Lan, the last thing she wants to do. After this, she is made an Accepted, a rank in the White Tower just below Aes Sedai and above novice , the lowest. Rand and his group travel through Cairhien , along with Selene, who keeps mysteriously disappearing.
After reaching the capital at Cairhien, Rand finds Thom Merrilin , a gleeman whom he thought had been killed by a Myrddraal , but who had actually survived the encounter. Thom is with his girlfriend and apprentice Dena in Cairhien. In the city, Rand and Loial are attacked by Trollocs and, during their escape, destroy the chapterhouse of the Illuminator's Guild , a secretive society of people who make fireworks and set them off during celebrations.
The Horn and dagger, unfortunately, are once again lost. Later on, Dena is murdered for Thom's involvement with Rand. Meanwhile, the wolves tell Perrin about Rand's location. Ingtar's group is reunited with Rand. They learn that the Horn has been taken to Toman Head , at the port city of Falme.
Hoping to get there faster, Rand and Verin attempt to use two Waygates , the second with the help of Ogiers in a nearby stedding , but they are closed to them by the Black Wind. Next Rand uses a portal stone, but it malfunctions and the group loses time by traveling by way of stone. As these events unfold, action also takes place on the other side of the continent, where the Seanchan have occupied the city of Falme.
Geofram Bornhald , of the Children of the Light , is preparing forces to take against the Seanchan. Once there, Min and Egwene are betrayed to the Seanchan by Liandrin. Egwene is collared with an a'dam , a device used by the Seanchan to control women who can channel, who they call damane , or "Leashed Ones". Rand, Ingtar, and the others arrive at Falme, where they send forth five of their number to reclaim the horn and dagger.
The five chosen to go are Ingtar, Hurin, because of his sniffing, Rand, Perrin, and Mat, who looks sickly and pale having been separated from the dagger so long, but has all of his physical strength and stamina. In the city, Rand sneaks into the building where the horn is being kept, but is found out and gets into a swordfight with the blademaster High Lord Turak of the Seanchan. Rand manages to defeat Turak and escapes with the horn and dagger. At the same time, Elayne and Nynaeve rescue Egwene from the Seanchan then try to get away from the city.
Unfortunately, the Whitecloaks choose this time to attack as well, and the heroes are trapped between the Seanchan and the Children. In a last desperate chance, Mat blows the Horn of Valere, summoning forth the heroes of the horn, led by Artur Hawkwing himself, and including Birgitte Silverbow.
The Children are easily defeated by the damane , but the Heroes of the Horn then overwhelm the Seanchan, who retreat in haste back to their ships and sail away. The climax of the book is an epic sword battle between Rand and Ba'alzamon , an image of which appears in the sky, drawing the attention of all. In the fight, Rand is unable to penetrate the defense of Ba'alzamon, and is forced to let his enemy strike a blow to his side in order to himself make an offensive lunge which becomes a fatal hit, again seemingly beating his opponent, just like it seemed he had at the end of The Eye of the World.
After the battle, Rand gives in to fate and proclaims himself the Dragon Reborn for the first time. Rand al'Thor journeys from denial to grudging acceptance of his identity as the Dragon Reborn and channels deliberately for the first time. He proves himself as a swordsman by slaying Seanchan blademaster Turak Aladon , and defeats Ba'alzamon a second time.
Matrim Cauthon retrieves the dagger from Seanchan custody, but sounds the Horn of Valere in a moment of desperation during their escape, forging a link with it that can only be broken by death. Perrin Aybara grudgingly uses his talent as a wolfbrother to assist in the search for the Horn. Nynaeve al'Meara becomes one of the accepted in the White Tower. In , The Great Hunt was re-released as two separate books aimed at a young adult literature market, with larger text and a handful of illustrations.
