Review of 'The Great Hunt'

The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
2nd book in the 'Wheel of Time' series

Book two finds Rand on his way to deliver the Horn of Valere to the Lord of House Shinowa (Ingtar) to allow him to summon an army of fallen soldiers to fight against the dark one. Needless to say it is not as easy as that as the horn (and dagger, needed by Rand's friend Mat in order to prevent him from a fate worse than death) has been stollen and taken to the other side of the world in Arad Doman to which they have to get to, unfortunately, the quick way of The Ways is regretably “out of order” (well, in order, but what is guarding it is a VERY good guard) so they must find another way to get there. That is just Rand's tale, if you want to bring in what is going on with the two ladies who accompanied him from The Two Rivers, then it gets complicated. A great continuation of the first novel and a real page-turner with a very good climax as well with predictable results (though unpredictable methods, it must be said).

Rating: “Really good but I have some issues”
