The Great Hunt is the second novel in Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series and it is probably best to start by saying that to my mind it does not make sense to read this novel without having read the first one. The story is just too complex for that and you will have a really hard time placing the characters and their connections to one another.

The novel follows the main characters on their respective journeys as the group is split up into subgroups in this novel. Moraine, the Aes Sedai, is reduced to a mere background role. The main plot of the novel is finding the Horn of Valere, an ancient artifact from the Age of Legends, that makes the heroes of the Age of Legends reappear when blown. The horn is stolen by Padan Fain who wants to use it for evil and Rand, Mat, Loial and a group of Shienaran soldiers set out to bring it back so that Rand, who is revealed as the Dragon Reborn, can blow it and fight the Dark One. Added to that, Padan Fain has also stolen the dagger from Shayol Ghul that Mat needs so that he can finally be freed from its curse and does not have to die. At the same time the two Emond's Fielders Egwene and Nynaeve, the clairvoyant Min as well as Elayne, the heir to the throne of Andor, are in Tar Valon and are trained to become Aes Sedai. Will the group eventually be able to take back the Horn of Valere and blow it? Will Rand fight Ba'alzamon and save the world? Read the novel to find out.

I liked the novel a lot as the plot was intriguing and kept me turning the pages. I empathized further with the main characters and really wanted to see their mission succeed. I will certainly continue the series. 4.5 stars. ( )

A series to read when you are not in a hurry, because Jordan is extensive in the way he tells the story, which can help with immersion, but you have to be in the mood to spend a lot of time in this world and with these characters.

I'm enjoying the series, although at times I wish the characters enjoyed themselves more. In the beginning Matt was my favorite character, because he was cheerful and a jokester, but then he got that curse thing and has been miserable since then. Rand is always moaning about how actual adventures are much more miserable than they seem in the books. Perrin hates his wolf-thing...

I mean, I get it, being in danger and having sinister people trying to kill you is not fun in real life, and I'm not asking for these guys to be partying all day, but I'm going to be accompanying these characters for a long time, and I think it would be fun for me as a reader if they had fun from time to time.

Another nitpick: I hate dream sequences, and there are quite a lot of those. ( )

Holy moly. So many emotions in the last 30 pages. you know everything is coming to a head (Toman's Head, to be precise) and you can somewhat see the gears shifting in Robert Jordan's head but that doesn't make it any less dramatic.

Except for that one thing. Did not see that coming and I'm not sure how I feel about RJ playing me like that. ( )

And it shall come to pass that what men made shall be shattered, and the Shadow shall lie across the Pattern of the Age, and the Dark One shall once more lay his hand upon the world of man. Women shall weep and men quail as the nations of the earth are rent like rotting cloth. Neither shall anything stand nor abide... Yet one shall be born to face the Shadow, born once more as he was born before and shall be born again, time without end. The Dragon shall be Reborn, and there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth at his rebirth. In sackcloth and ashes shall he clothe the people, and he shall break the world again by his coming, tearing apart all ties that bind. Like the unfettered dawn shall he blind us, and burn us, yet shall the Dragon Reborn confront the Shadow at the Last Battle, and his blood shall give us the Light. Let tears flow, O ye people of the world. Weep for your salvation.

--From The Karaethon Cycles: The Prophecies of the Dragon,


as translated by Ellaine Marise'idin Alshinn,
Chief Librarian at the Court of Arafel,
in the Year of Grace 231 of the New Era, the Third Age
And men cried out to the Creator, saying, O Light of the Heavens, Light of the World, let the Promised One be born of the mountain, according to the Prophecies, as he was in Ages past and will be in Ages to come. Let the Prince of the Morning sing to the land that green things will grow and the valleys give forth lambs. Let the arm of the Lord of the Dawn shelter us from the Dark, and the great sword of justice defend us. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

--from Caral Drianaan te Calamon, The Cycle of the Dragon,
Author unknown, the Fourth Age
