From Publishers Weekly

Jordan continues his Wheel of Time saga (after The Eye of the World and The Great Hunt ). Three thousand years ago the Dragon led the male mages of the world into entrapping the Dark One, but the cost was high: all male mages, then and thereafter, were driven mad. Now the Dark One is breaking free, and the only salvation may come through Rand al'Thor who may be a reincarnation of the Dragon and who must obtain the sword Callandor, held in the city of Tear. All of Rand's companions from the previous books find themselves, willing or not, moving toward Tear for a confrontation with evil traps. Jordan's fast and absorbing adventure novel will keep the reader too entranced to worry about plot inconsistencies, numerous coincidences, lack of character development and Rand's inexplicably infrequent appearances. As light fantasy, however, it proves an enjoyable diversion.

From Kirkus Reviews

Third entry in Jordan's monumental Wheel of Time series (The Eye of the World, The Great Hunt). Here, the various factions head toward the city Tear, where, in the Heart of the Stone, hangs the magical sword Callendor that none but the Dragon Reborn may wield. Young Rand, the only man able to use the One Power, already half convinced that he is the Dragon Reborn, strikes out alone. Rand's friend Perrin the blacksmith--he's accompanied by Moiraine, the Power-wielding Aes Sedai, and warrior Lan--suspects that he's turning into a wolf. The junior Aes Sedai, Egwene, Elayne, and Nynaeve take Mat to Tar Valon to be healed of his evil-magic wound; here, they are given the dangerous new task of flushing out the evil Black Ajah in their midst while evading the latter's deadly traps. Eventually, all will converge at Heart of the Stone, where Rand will seize Callendor and destroy their current evil opponent. Some good plotting here and there, and a rousing finale, but most of the rest is merely embroidered heroic travelogue. Not too bad--if you like monuments. -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It Just Keeps Getting Better And Better! 4. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
First off, I just want to say that I am very happy about all the great reviews this book is getting. One of the only things that most of the critics seem to be complaining about is the lack of writing about the main character. I can see their point in some ways considering that the book is called the Dragon Reborn. But, all in all I think that Jordan executed this book very nicely. He gave you a chance to meet the other characters and see their view of it all. Not that I don't enjoy reading about Rand, its just that I like to hear about the girls, Mat, and Perrin too. So, in conclusion, I just want to tell you to buy the book (it really is good if you couldn't tell that from al of my babbling) and in that case, buy the series. I hope that all of your adventures with the kids from the Two Rivers can be as exciting as mine.

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's getting better and better! 2. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
The Wheel of Time turns and brings Volume 3 of the saga, The Dragon Reborn (TDR). Oddly, though named after him, Rand al'Thor hardly figures in the book; after striking out on his own near the beginning, he reappears only towards the end in the climactic battle in the heart of the Stone of Tear. That climax is actually perhaps the best part of the book. But there are a number of other good features. The characters of Perrin and Mat are further developed in TDR and each begins to assume the traits that will, one presumes, shape their futures as well. Perrin with the wolves and his wolf-senses, Mat with his gambler's luck and battle sense. The White Tower is shaken as the Black Ajah emerges from hiding and none knows who can be trusted. Most significant of all TDR gives us out first real glimpse of the Aiel and we slowly start to learn about this fascinating people, so evidently derived from Frank Herbert's Fremen of Arrakis. A super successor to the first two books and a fascinating read. But read the series in order; it will not make much sense to you otherwise. There are flaws too no doubt. After all the build-up to the Horn of Valere in the previous book, it vanishes into safe keeping and plays no real part in TDR. But I suppose, when you have a canvas as wide as Jordan has pained for the saga, it is impossible to keep all threads in play together. A great book. But still only 4 stars for my now patented complains about the pathetic cartography and the wretched excuse for a glossary of characters and concepts.

4.0 von 5 Sternen excellent, if a bit drawn out 24. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a great book, but moves somewhat slower than the first two. I read it first a couple years ago, and now I'm kind of re-reading it and am about halfway through it. Unlike the first two in the series, the focus lifts off Rand as well as giving us a somewhat clearer view of events outside the knowledge of the protagonists.
The scheming of the Forsaken becomes less muddled, although the reader is still very much in the dark as to what alliances have formed among the Forsaken. It becomes obvious for the first time that the Aiel will play a MAJOR role in Rand's destiny and he will need their help.
As far as the main characters are concerned, Rand himself is in flight practically the entire book and Jordan doesn't spend much time on him. The pacing seems a bit off; Rand should be out-distancing the rest of the companions (because they have several adventures along the way, i.e. Perrin and Faile, the wolf-man, etc.), yet Moiraine manages to end up in Tear at about the same time as Rand! Maybe I need to finish re-reading it to understand how that worked.
As usual, Jordan shows his mastery of immersing the reader in the setting. The descriptions of the Stone of Tear and the final battle within are outstanding. The conclusion is very satisfying and henceforth Rand begins a widely recognized ascendancy as the Dragon Reborn, with promises of a gripping saga ahead!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Slickly written and plotted like a soap opera 12. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Robert Jordan's still-growing mega-series "The Wheel of Time" is a flatly derivative venture. Notwithstanding the basic concept (an epic fantasy of struggle against a supernatural Dark Lord in an imaginary world of swords and sorcerers), which so obviously is owed to Tolkien, it is not hard to identify passages or scenes in each of the first three books of this series that have been borrowed (or, if you prefer, "stolen") wholesale from movies, television series and other forms of popular culture. Robert Jordan has put a great deal of thought into fleshing out his imaginary lands, the people who inhabit them and the rules under which they act, but there should be no mistaking this author for something original; he has mixed inputs from a number of sources and has little to say that is truly his own.
The salient question for someone thinking about reading this book, though, is does any of that matter? At this point, decades after Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" first saw print, it is unlikely that anyone who reads epic fantasy does so with the aim of discovering real originality; it is more likely that the reader is looking for a whiz-bang good time, a fast-paced page turner, a vehicle of pure escapist entertainment. It is on that level that all of "The Wheel of Time," including this volume (#3), is to be evaluated.
In this light, Jordan both succeeds and fails. His story chugs along nicely. He brings his characters into confrontation with suitably serious dangers and brings them out satisfactorily (which is to say, no one of any import is going to die).
