New Spring, thankfully, rectifies the latter problem. It moves along at a fine pace, keeping the reader interested from beginning to end. It's a measure of the depth of Jordan's story that even those of us who have read through the whole Wheel of Time series numerous times can find plenty of interest in this latest volume. A number of long-standing questions are resolved to greater or lesser extent in this book:
- What history does Elaida have with Moiraine and Siuan?
- What is the nature of the test to become full Aes Sedai?
- What happened to the other Malkieri following the fall of their nation?
- Why does Siuan suspect that Cadsuane is Black Ajah?
- What was the "unpleasantness" following the Aiel War that Cadsuane has referred to?Read more ›
For all of you who have been buying books every 2 years - and debating whether to keep doing so - buy this.
This was a FUN read - and reminded me of why I got hooked on this series in the first place. I had read a review complaining there was too much fluff (e.g., descriptions of Tar Valon) - nonsense. While the book was not deep it was a pleasure to follow. Reading this provides insight into the relationship between Lan and Moiraine. READ THIS!!
Enough about what the book doesn't have. New Spring is very good. It takes us back to when Moiraine Damodred and Siuane Sanche are Accepted in the White Tower, training to become Aes Sedai.Read more ›
The first six books made me a huge fan, and established some incredible characters -- some of the best in fantasy -- but since then the characters have stopped developing in any meaningfull way, and nothing has happened. You could argue, I suppose, that book nine saw the power cleansed -- but so what? It's cleansing made no real difference in book ten -- heck, Rand (in the few pages he appeared in book ten) seamed even more reluctant to touch the power then he'd been when it had been tainted.
For four or five books now we've been waiting for the battle of the two white towers. For four books or so we've been waiting for Rand to do something about the running of the black tower. For four books or so we've been waiting for Morgase to stop pretending she's a maid and reveal she's a Queen. For three books or so we've been waiting for Elayne to gain solid control of Andor (the struggle for control may be realistic -- but I don't care -- I find it boring. It's been going on too long.) We've been waiting forever for a resolution to Padan Fain. We've been waiting forever for Rand to really do something about the Seanchen. I've been waiting for four books now for Rand to stop sneaking into one ruling house after another, trying to ensure no one know he's there while he tells people he doesn't really trust how to run the day to day operations for him.Read more ›

This was a great addition to the series. Although a little slow at times, it sheds light on many of the questions I had regarding Moiraine and Lan.Published 2 days ago by Michael Petty
This is a must read for any fan of the WoT series. I've enjoyed it as much as all of the other books and was left with an intense sense of nostalgia.Published 6 days ago by Matt G

This prequel is one for the books. Mr. Jordan deftly laid the groundwork for the Wheel of Time series. Intrigue, politics, duty, friendship, and betrayal feature in New Spring. Read morePublished 3 months ago by stone82
