Book Review: The Shadow Rising



The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan

I seem to have developed a new tradition for rereading this mammoth fantasy series...I always take the next book with me to a conference or while traveling. Because they are so darn long, I know it will last me the whole trip!

This, book four in the series, weighs in at a mere 986 pages, but the threads of the story are starting to twist and separate and reweave...Rand is the Dragon Reborn, Mat is still mischievous and not following rules, and Perrin is ready to go home again, to lead a battle of his own...

I'm still enjoying rereading these books with a mixture of sentiment and memory, and with knowing where some of the threads will lead. Only 8 more books to go before the saga ends...

Superb fantasy series!
