The Dragon Reborn is the third book in the Wheel of Time fantasy series by Robert Jordan. The first book is The Eye of the World; the second book is The Great Hunt. I am continuing to love the series so far. The "hero" of the series, Rand, is a person of interest in this book, but not necessarily a major character. Rand who has recently declared himself to be the Dragon reborn--or allowed himself to be declared the Dragon reborn--has gone missing in this one, and that has many worried including Moiraine, Lan, Perrin, Nynaeve, Egwene, Elayne, Mat, and Loial, to name a few. Many journeys are undertaken in this one as everyone seeks to help their friend in his oh-so-dangerous journey. (There are many different groups traveling, many points of view in this one.)
I enjoyed many of the perspectives in this one. I especially liked reading about Egwene, Nynaeve, and Elayne. (They are still dealing with the events that happened in The Great Hunt.) Even if I didn't absolutely love each character, I still cared enough to keep reading. I found this book to be very connected to the Great Hunt, so it was great to read both books so close together. I think this one has a great pace to it. I loved the adventure, danger, and mystery.
