The Dragon Reborn--the leader long prophesied who will save the world, but in the saving destroy it; the savior who will run mad and kill all those dearest to him--is on the run from his destiny. Able to touch the One Power, but unable to control it, and with no one to teach him how--for no man has done it in three thousand years--Rand al'Thor knows only that he must face the Dark One. But how? Winter has stopped the war-almost-yet men are dying, calling out for the Dragon. But where is he? Perrin Aybara is in pursuit with Moiraine Sedai, her Warder Lan, and the Loial the Ogier. Bedeviled by dreams, Perrin is grappling with another deadly problem--how is her to escape the loss of his own humanity. Egwene, Elayne and Nynaeve are approaching Tar Valon, where Mat will be healed--if he lives until they arrive. But who will tell the Amyrlin their news--that the Black Ajah, long thought only a hideous rumor, is all too real? They cannot know that in Tar Valon far worse awaits... Ahead, for all of them, in the Heart of the Stone, lies the next great test of the Dragon reborn....

I think the story overall is engaging and interesting. It follows nicely from the two previous books in the series and provides for solid growth for the majority of the characters. Despite all the good things that I have to say about this book, I could not give it 5 stars because of several issues t...
The story has really got going at this point and the differences in the characters are becoming clearer. Was sucked into the world.
The prophesies of the Dragon Reborn must be fulfilled, including the one about the sword which is not a sword. The Dark One still hunts three boys from the Two Rivers in their dreams and in reality. The aftermath of the events in the end of the previous book sends disturbance waves throughout the wh...
This one dragged and dragged and dragged, only to tie all the missing links together (at least for now!) in a magnificent ending. 4 stars for that conclusion, because now it all makes sense!
