Publisher's Summary

For three days battle has raged in the snow around the great city of Tar Valon. In the city, a foretelling of the future is uttered. On the slopes of Dragonmount, the immense mountain that looms over the city, a child is born, an infant prophesied to change the world. That child must be found before he can be killed by the forces of the Shadow. And Moiraine Damodred, a young Accepted soon to be raised to Aes Sedai, and Lan Mandragoran, a young soldier fighting in the battle, are set on paths that will bind their lives together. But those paths are filled with complications and dangers, for Moiraine is of the Royal House of Cairhien, whose King has just died, and Lan is considered the uncrowned king of a nation long dead, and the plots of those seeking power threaten their lives. The novella "New Spring" told a part of the story, in compressed form...the novel New Spring tells the whole story.

What the Critics Say

"Jordan has come to dominate the world that Tolkien began to reveal." (The New York Times)
"Written with all the skill that has made Jordan one of the grand masters of fantasy." (Publishers Weekly
"Both narrators handle complex roles with feeling and confidence, never losing the excitement and tension of the fast-moving story. The performers breathe emotion into their characters with an earnestness that holds listeners close and leaves them wanting more." (AudioFile)

    "Love Robert Jordan!"

    Lan and Moiraine's tale of bonding brings an introduction to the entire story of the Wheel of Time for which I, like so many fans, have been yearning.

    "Felt like going home!"

    Haven't read the Wot series for awhile, so decided it would be my summer read this year. Started with New Spring and now I'll go through all 14 volumes on Audible. Feels like heading home again - scared and excited!

    "Great prequel to the Wheel of Time series"

    Great prequel to the Wheel of Time series. I enjoyed following the story of Lan, Moiraine,and Siuan. It was interesting to hear some of their backstory.

    "Great intro to the WOT!"

    Very great view of Moraine, Siuan and Lan before the main story. Short enough to introduce newcomers!

    "Had no audio glitches"

    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.
