In the distant past 3000 years ago, the Tamyrlin Seat warns the Dragon Reborn, Lews Therin Telamon, of the dangers of his plan to imprison the Dark One.In the present day, in the Blight, Moiraine and Rand make their way to the Eye of the World and the Dark One’s prison. Having worked for 20-years for this moment, Moiraine gives Rand a sa'angreal, an ancient object to enhance his power to defeat the Dark One.

Meanwhile, with Lan tracking Moiraine and Rand in the Blight, at Fal Dara, thousands of Trollocs and their Mydrahhal launch an attack. As the Shinerien army of Fal Dara falls at the defenses in the Tarwin’s Gap, the Trollics charge on to destroy the city and bastion of Fal Dara.

One last hope remains as Five women including Nynaeve and Egwene channel against the attack to protect the city and destroy the Trolloc army. But the effort to channel the One Power burns out all but Egwene, who is able to heal Nynaeve.

During the battle inside the fortress, soldiers accompanied by Perrin seek to retrieve the Horn of Valere, an ancient object that is prophesied to summon the greatest warriors of history at the Last Battle between the Dark One and the Dragon Reborn. But they are not alone and Padan Fain with the help of two Fades steals the Horn, revealing to Perrin that he is a Darkfriend who visited the Two Rivers to find the five ta'veren.

At the Eye, not even the power of Moiraine, the Blue Ajah, can stop the Dragon Reborn from being tempted by the appeal of the Dark One; as Rand is offered a vision of him and Egwene starting a family. The Dark One, Shai’tan or Ba'alzamon, tells him all he sees can come to pass if he gives his power to the Shadow. To prevent meddling from Moiraine the Dark One cuts her connection to the One Power.

But as Rand is offered his choice within his mind, his unconscious body is held by Moiraine who holds a knife to his neck, prepared to slit his throat if Rand chooses unwisely. But as the Dark One’s offer is rejected by Rand he awakes to attack the Dark One with the sa'angreal. In doing so he fractures one of the seals of Shai’tan’s prison.

In the aftermath of his confrontation with the Dark One, fearing madness, Rand decides to go into hiding. Lan finds Moiraine, who tells him that this was not the Last Battle. In the west. on the Aryth Ocean, great ships arrive, whose channellers at the bow of the ships generate powerful waves.
