Good addidition to the wheel of time series. I really enjoyed adding depth to two of the more mysterious characters of the series. Was a little confusing at times with the way some names were pronounced, but I wouldn't say that was a point against it.
Completely new to Robert Jordan and his works. Thouroughly recommend this as an engrossing and well written work. The narrators where excellent and enhanced the whole experience. I'm encouraged now to listen to the whole series....the whole unabridged series.
Yes, the narrators are fabulous.
This one is a great back story allows you to see how some of the power players in the story got there.
Right on par with their excellent narrating, they bring the characters to life.
See how it all began!
This is a great book to pop in right after book 6. Not going to spoil why but this is a great filler after that book. It also allows you to take a breather from the series.
I read all the series about two years ago, but never bought the prequel. When Gathering Storm came out, I bought it along with New Spring. I re-read the whole series starting with New Spring this time. For me, it made the whole series flow better than it did the first time I read WOT. I recommend it to all WOT fans and think new fans will enjoy the WOT series more by starting with New Spring.
A very absorbing book. In addition to being a terrific story on it's own it really adds to the series. The narration is also excellent. I couldn't stop listening.
New Spring is the prequel to Robert Jordan Wheel of Time series. IT was added later after the success of the series.
The Birth of the Dragon was foretold shortly before his birth on Mount Dragon By and Aes Sedai with Foretelling. Moraine and Suian are Aes Sedai in training and are, with others trainees, sent out to find the child prophesied to be born on the slopes of Dragon Mount.
The White Tower knows of his birth but so do the Shadowfriends amongst the Aes Sedai. The lines have been drawn, but who would prevail.
I, like many other readers have pained through the last few WoT books. New Spring is different and more like the first few WoT books. Great book.
Listening to these in publishing order, the two before this one were full of audio glitches where they repeated about 20 seconds of audio over again a number of time throughout the book. This one was flawless.
