Reviews of New Spring: The Novel


New Spring has the advantage of a wealth of soon to be familiar characters to veterans of the Wheel of Time Series and a kind of new car smell attraction to readers new to the party. -- Bruce Wallace, SF Revu

This is The Wheel of Time at its best: political intrigue, powerful characters, dangerous magic and even more dangerous secrets, a Book sure to win new loyal followers for Jordan's epic Series. -- John Green, Bookpage

Long time fans should enjoy it, and new fans will likely get caught up. -- Jason Denzel, felt like reading The Eye of the World for the first time again. -- Hilary Williamson, Bookloons

Fans of the Series will enjoy this tale that patches up some issues and opens up new questions, but still feels out of sequential time with I think ten ...wheels... already published and two or three spins to go. -- Harriet Klausner,

...enough interest is maintained to make the novel an entertaining read, if not up to the standard of Jordan's best, so I happily grant it a place on my 'more highs than lows' shelf. -- Martin Jenner, SFCrowsNest

Author Robert Jordan has become one of the top names in modern fantasy by delivering a solid tale that combines adventure, fascinating world-building, and character development. NEW SPRING delivers on all of these elements and makes a highly entertaining read. -- BooksForABuck
