Notes: New Spring: The Novel is an expanded version of the short story that first appeared in the Legends anthology. The first 202 pages are completely new, while the remaining story has been altered a bit to take into account the additional material, and the somewhat different spin it places on the events. Sometimes this revision is minor, and other times passages in the book have been more heavily rewritten. In some places minor parts of the original short story are gone.
Comic: New Spring is being adapted into a comic series by Dabel Brothers Production.

For three days battle has raged in the snow around the great city of Tar Valon. In the city, a Foretelling of the future is uttered. On the slopes of Dragonmount, the immense mountain that looms over the city, is born an infant prophesied to change the world. That child must be found before the forces of the Shadow have an opportunity to kill him. Moiraine Damodred, a young Accepted soon to be raised to Aes Sedai, and Lan Mandragoran, a soldier fighting in the battle, are set on paths that will bind their lives together. But those paths are filled with complications and dangers, for Moiraine, of the Royal House of Cairhien, whose king has just died, and Lan, considered the uncrowned king of a nation long dead, find their lives threatened by the plots of those seeking power. "New Spring," the novella first publishing in Legends, related some of these events, in compressed form; New Spring: The Novel tells the whole story.
