As the Wheel turns, the winds of fate roll across the land, and Rand al'Thor struggles to unite the nations for the Last Battle, when the Dark One will break free into the world, and to spring the snares laid by the immortal Forsaken for unwary humankind.
The White Tower in Tar Valon, under the Amyrlin Elaida, has decided that Rand must be controlled - gentled if need be - immediately. And in Salidar, among the Aes Sedai in exile, Egwene al'Vere, although summoned to high office faces the knowledge that her colleagues also wish to bind him.
Drought and summer heat linger into winter, and Nynaeve al'Maera and Elayne, the Daughter-Heir of Andor, begin a desperate search for the fabled ter'angreal that may enable them to bring normal weather - a search that takes them among White cloaks bent on exterminating Aes Sedai.
And across half a continent, Perrin Ayabara feels Rand's pull, ta'veren to ta'veren, and for the first time in a thousand years, the bowmen of the Two Rivers march to war.
