The Wheel of Time series is awesome. It brings your imagination to life. I have listen to this book as well as book 1 in the series. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed books like Harry Potter.
This was the first Robert Jordan book I've listened to. Let me tell you, this set the stage for what looks to be a grand story in the Wheel of Time story series. Very well written and the narration was impeccable. I'm hooked!
This is the shortest Robert Jordan book I have listened to. Honestly, I wish it was longer and continued right up to when the first Wheel of Time novel (The Eye of the World)started.
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.
Jordan always spins a good yarn. Unlike the others in this series you know where things are going. I just wish that he would have used the time spent on this book to FINISH THE SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Began reading sci-fi 71 years ago, at age 4, will continue until my clock quits ticking.. Best education one could have ever wished for.
Like all the other books in this amazing series this tale is filled with romance and intrigue; Never disappointing Jordan delivers on detail, character development and emotion. The performance by Kramer and Reading is, as always, superb, this is a masterpiece of an audiobook.
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.
I've not read or listened to any other Wheel of Time books and if this prequel is any indication, I'll be reading the others.
However, I will not be listening to them since it seems that Audible has no unabridged versions of the first 5 books. Abridgment is butchery and I will not buy ANY abridged versions of any book.
Easy to listen to and follow- but will catch you up and take you along for the ride.
I'm a BIG fan of the Wheel of Time series... This book, on the other hand, was irrelevant in almost every way. No story lines are advanced or secrets or insights revealed. More of a novelette about Siuan and Moiraine's schoolgirl (Accepted) days, this book is worth a listen if you are a big fan, but don't expect too much. Only gets two stars because of it's ties with the Wheel of Time series proper.
