    One thought on “New Spring”

    1. Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsThis book gave me FEELINGS . . . . few of them good.For the first time in a WoT reread, I found myself absolutely hating the content. HATING. The only reason NEW SPRING didn't get one-starred is b/c there are more than a few poignant Lan moments. But without those . . . *flares nostrils*The first problem is that the front half to two-thirds of the book is slow as molasses. Noooooothiiiiiing haaaaaappennnnns. Well, okay, something happens--Gitara, the same Aes Sedai who s [...]

    2. *** 4 ***A Buddy Read with the best Fantasy Fans at BB&B!!!A very nice recap of how the search for The Dragon Reborn started and the two Aes Seday who sacrificed much and dedicated their lives to finding and keeping him safe in order to live and be at his strongest at the time of the Last Battle between The Light and the Dark Lord. We also got to see a young Lan , who is wonderful even as a pup. A nice addition, but not an essential one. I wish you all Happy Reading and find time to enjoy th [...]

    3. 1.5 I’m Sorry To Do This StarsOkay hear me out….I totally admit the Robert Jordan has a fantastic and complex world full of intricately detailed world building with cultures, religions and landscaping. But if it takes 60% for your books to go anywhere and you destroy beloved characters along the way I’m totally going to have a problem.So this is supposed to be an origin story or a prequel to the Wheel of Time series set a little less than 20 years before Eye of the World. The problem with [...]

    4. This WoT prequel is the story of how Moiraine and Lan first met and of how Moiraine and Siuan got caught up in all the Dragon Reborn related intrigue. It is set 20 years before the happenings in Eye of the World. The story was actually better than I was expecting it to be. It was told mostly from Moiraine's POV, but we also got a number of chapters from Lan's POV. It gave both characters plenty of time to shine and I definitely like both of them a lot more after reading their adventures in this [...]

    5. Sometimes I feel like reading fantasy is just a waste of time. If nothing else, the themes are often distressingly adolescent and no matter how many times I read about slaying dragons, it's pretty unlikely that I'll ever slay a dragon in real life.Perhaps, for me, the real attraction that sword & sorcery offers is an escape into a world of imagination. It sounds like a corny movie trailer (I'm sure everyone can hear the movie trailer voice when reading "esCApe into a worlld of imagiNAtion") [...]

    6. I have read and loved the entire Wheel of Time series so it was fun to read the prequel to the whole affair. I really enjoyed finding out how Moiraine and Lan met and how he became her warder. I also liked all the information about the White Tower and the Aes Sedai. There is nothing in this book that you have to know before enjoying the rest of the series but it is a nice little piece of background information. Loved the ending - it almost made me go and pick up Book 1 to read again.

    7. 2nd readFour years ago, I fell in love with Wheel of Time and read all 15 volumes in less than three months. To this day, it’s still my number One series.Some say this prequel should be read in publication order, as it was written after Crossroads of Twilight, which is the 10th. Well, I started with it and it helped a lot with the intricacies of Aes Sedai schemes and the relationship between some of its main characters; it also sheds light on the Foretelling of the Dragon Reborn. But if you wa [...]

    8. The plot of this book can be summarized in the following two sentences. Moiraine and Siuan Sanche learn a great secret while still being Accepted in the White Tower. Moiraine meets Lan. There are much more than these events in the prequel and some more familiar faces appear than the ones I already mentioned.I gave this book 5 stars initially, but I was sure I would lower the rating to 4 stars after I read this tale for the second time. To my complete surprise I realized that is still worth 5 sta [...]

    9. Some readers may confuse because Some readers read this novel before 'The Eye of the World' because it is a prequel story of 'The Wheel of Time'. Some readers read this novel after 'Crossroads of Twilight because of the publish order. Some readers read this novel after 'A Memory of Light' because the end of 'A Memory of Light' book stated to read 'New Spring'.

    10. I read the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan because both my husband and best friend had read them. The best friend highly encouraged me to read the books - my husband warned me off.The warning is not because the books are bad. The first few, actually, are very good. Great character development, interesting universe for those who love fantasy novels.The warning is because these books never, ever, ever are going to end. Ever.There are so far 12 books (including a prequel that came out somewhe [...]

    11. I feel like I should've read this after like 2nd or 3rd book. This filler book seems a little embellished but empty somehow. Liked the overall story though.

    12. New Spring is technically a prequel to the Wheel of Time series (it's about events that occurred approximately 20 years before The Eye of the World) but I was advised to read it after book 10, Crossroads of Twilight, to avoid accidental spoilers. I'm not sure there were any major spoilers hidden in here but it definitely gives you an idea about which of the Aes Sedai can and can't be trusted so I can see why I was told to hold off on reading it until this point in the series.I'm really torn abou [...]

    13. A pleasure. I enjoyed it more than the later books in the main series, way more than Crossroads of Twilight for example.

    14. This novel is the prequel to the Wheel of Time series. It describes the coming-of-age of Moiraine Damodred and Siuan Sanche as Aes Sedai and how Moiraine and how al'Lan Mandragoran came to be Moiraine's Warder.I've read the last book of the Wheel of Time, A Memory of Light, back in January 2013. This was 22 years after I read the first novel in the series. Quite a journey for 14 novels, hum? Though I consider myself a light fan of this series, I never have read the short story New Spring when Ro [...]

    15. Prequel 'New Spring', a short book written after book ten in the 'Wheel of Time' series, is the story of how Moiraine Damodred and Siuan Sanche became Aes Sedai. It also relates how Lan Mandragoran met Moiraine. It explains why they decided to find the 'Dragon Reborn.' I have finished the entire series, and I can say reading this book out of order will not hurt a reader's enjoyment of the main series at all. It does fill in some history. However, the reader will not find this novel as exciting a [...]

    16. There are no beginnings or endings in the wheel of time but this is an ending. The prequel was the only book I hadn't read (listened to). It was enjoyable. Kramer and Reading are just two of the best narrators out there. The book itself while classic wheel of time was disappointing. There wasn't anything new of note and the first 60% was all white tower not Moraine and Lan off figuring out things about the Dragon. If you're a WOT fan, and I am but see it's many flaws keeping it from being the GO [...]

    17. Maybe 2.5 stars. I'm not entirely sure. This started out very promising. Moiraine and Siuan were young and learning about the Dragon Reborn. It had all the makings of a fascinating story. And then it fell flat. The first couple of chapters were exciting and had me really invested. Then the story became about Moiraine and Siuan in the Tower, and while I found some of this interesting, I didn't find it all that relevant. There was enough of Tower politics given in the main series, we didn't need q [...]

    18. Throughout the series, the Two Rivers folk are emphasized more than any others, which makes sense because they are extremely important. However, Moiraine and Lan are extremely important as well. Without Moiraine, the Two Rivers folk never would have left the Two Rivers, and, even worse, Rand wouldn't have been given his chance to save the world as the Dragon Reborn. Moiraine and Lan are crucial to the Wheel of Time storyline, and reading about their beginnings helped me to respect them so much m [...]

    19. 3.5 stars. Thought I'd better read this prequel before finishing the last book in the Wheel Of Time series, especially because I feel like it's important to know how Moiraine, Lan and Siuan started out and how they met etc.This was a great story overall, helped mostly by the fact that Siuan and Moiraine are brilliant characters through and through. I was really surprised that we went as far back to see them being raised to Aes Sedai. Would've loved to see more of The White Tower a bit later up t [...]

    20. New Spring se passa durante o final da Guerra dos Aiel, cerca de 20 anos antes de O Olho do Mundo. O livro mostra Moiraine e Siuan como aceitas enquanto estudavam na Torre Branca para se tornarem Aes Sedai. Mesmo quando aceitas, as duas já haviam iniciado a busca pela criança profetizada, o Dragão Renascido. O livro também trás alguns capítulos sobre Lan, futuro guardião de Moiraine.Essa prequel me agradou bastante. O livro nos trás bastante informação sobre as Aes Sedai e a Torre [...]

    21. "Only a fool believe women less dangerous than men, but women often seemed to think men fools when it came to women." Μια από τις καλύτερες φράσεις του βιβλίου. Με έκανε να θυμηθώ μια ομιλία για fantasy και φεμινισμό όπου ο Robert Jordan θεωρήθηκε εχθρός του φεμινισμού. Τέτοιες φράσεις διαψεύδουν αυτή την άποψη. Το Νew Spring είναι το βιβλί [...]

    22. I'm writing my review after having read this book for the third time. This was the first time I read it before reading any of the other books in the series (I couldn't wait until January, I had to start getting my WoT on now, so I'm doing a complete re-read). I just have to say I feels so good to hop back into this world. This isn't my favorite of the series by far, but I feel like it's a great addition nonetheless. For new readers you should definitely save this until later in the series even t [...]

    23. New Spring is a prequel novel in the Wheel of Time series. It fleshes out several bits of back story that are provided throughout the first several books. I think I’m just going to stop there as far as explaining what it’s about. People familiar with the series can probably guess part of it just from looking at the cover, at least the cover for my edition, but the book was about a lot more than that and (slight spoiler) (view spoiler)[the scene on the cover was actually one of the last scene [...]

    24. This prequel wasn't about what I thought it was going to be, but it managed to be a fun read.My favourite part was seeing Moiraine and Siuan in their younger years, acting as only children can. A perfect contrast to the stern Aes Sedai we've come to love.I'm not sure how important the events in this book were to the overall series, but for character development I give it an A+.

    25. Livro com POV da Moiraine? Não tem como ser ruim!Depois desse livro passei a gostar ainda mais da Ajah Azul. Agora não tenho mais dúvida sobre qual Ajah eu seria.E que venha o The Fires of Heaven! Torcendo pra que a Moiraine apareça mais. Senti falta dela no TSR.

    26. Buddy Read with the WoT fans of BB&B.This is a hard book to review. It's recommended to read this book after Winter's Heart orCrossroads of Twilight because it gives to much spoilers otherwise. It's what I did and the fact that I read it after reading 10 books of the series has coloured the way I look at things. In a way this scratches an itch I didn't even know about, because it gives a look at life in the White Tower. It's fascinating and depressing at the same time. Depressing because I c [...]

    27. New Spring really wasn't anything more than I expected. It wasn't at all bad, but I also don't think it was a magnificent book like we've seen in the Wheel of Time series. I liked getting to know Moiraine and Siuan as young Accepted, and going through the process of being raised Aes Sedai with them was fun, but really, that was the entire first half of the book. Only when they're raised does it start to get interesting. It was interesting to see how Lan actually came about to becoming Moiraine's [...]

    28. When Memory of Light, the long awaited final volume of The Wheel of Time series, twenty years or more in the making, was finally released earlier this year it obviously grabbed my attention. It’s been a good long time since I’d been truly invested in this series, and my enthusiasm for it had long since waned. I hadn’t read any Wheel of Time since Jordan’s last novel before his untimely death and Brandon Sanderson was brought in to finish the series. I didn’t quit or anything like that, [...]
