7. Robert Jordan/The great hunt/A tom Doherty book/1991/705 pgs/Book two of the wheel of time/ISBN 0-812-51772-5 This book is a great book.The only problem is Robert Jordan repeats the theme repeatedly and it becomes kind of dry. The story is still rich and full of life. The Horn of valere is stolen by darkfriends and Rand and his friends must hunt down the horn before the father of lies or his dark spawn blow the horn and bring back the heros of legends back to fight for the darkside in the last battle. I give this a grade A for effort.
