The Dragon Reborn (Paperback, 2002, Tor Fantasy) 4 stars

The Dragon Reborn—the leader long prophesied who will save the world, but in the …

Rand fulfills more prophecies!!!

No rating

I've finally started consulting the Wikipedia pages for these books that I'm reviewing that I finished a few weeks ago, and so I can say with certainty that this is the one where Rand runs away and we know that he's feeling really angsty and going through some shit but also we're following other characters in the meantime, so we don't have to deal with all the personal growth that takes place during this book directly. At this point in the series I think Perrin has started to grow on me, awoo, but Mat is as annoying as ever because all he ever wants to do is run away sans the personal growth bit. The girls go off to do their thing but they have no idea what they're doing, and it's a wonder they survive. It's a wonder any of them survive, really. How did this series not end …

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 …

It is long and occupied my attention for the amount of time it took to read

I started reading the first book of the Wheel of Time series back when I was an internet teen with an internet crush on an internet guy with the username Lews Therin Telemon on internet forums and I thought it would be cool to like the same things he liked, or something. After several months of a global pandemic and general disaster I thought it'd be fun to get back into them as a goof or something, but joke's on me because a month and a half later, I'm still with it.

Anyway, what am I going to say about this ~NYT #1 bestselling epic fantasy whatever~ that hasn't already been said? There's a lot of neat stuff in the WoT mythology, and also a lot of eyerolly cisheteronormative stuff, and all the baby teen characters in this book are very annoying and bad at communicating with one another, but …
