The review of this Book prepared by Bryan

In the series, Rand al'Thor is hunted by the Dark One's evil minions and monsters. He has special powers the allow him to Travel, create Illusion, manipulate fire, wind, water, earth, and spirit. He discovers these powers as he sets out in the world to escape the Dark One along with his friends. He falls in love with three women and must choose between them. He finds out that he is the Dragon Reborn and must save the world from the Dark One before he breaks free of his prison and overtakes the earth. An overall good series, with adventure, wars, gore, love and just about everything else. I recommend it.
