Spoiler Filled Synopsis
Perrin and Hopper leave Elyas to save his pack - Loial and the Seanchan, but on the way Perrin is directed by Hopper to the town Atuan Mill where they were previously attacked by the Schenchean forces. As he looks to find Uno to bury him he meets an Aiel Aviendha and a man named Dain who warns him off going near the Aiel.
Perrin soon discovers that the town has been reclaimed from the Schenchean by the Whitecloaks led by Dain Bornhald and Eamon Valda. Perrin decides to leave and en route releases Aviendha from her cage, but as they make their escape are surrounded by Whitecloaks led by Dain. In the ensuing fight Aviendha shows her fighting prowess but is forced to spare Bornhald’ life by Perrin. As they make their way to Falme to save Loial, Aviendha pledges to help him rescue the others.
Meanwhile, Lady Suroth is demoted for disobeying the orders of the Seanchan High Commander Turak, but Ishamael gains his favour by delivering him the Horn of Valere, a great weapon that will ensure victory for the Schenchean. As Ishmael and Suroth plot he sends her out to receive his gifts of Nyanaeve, Elayne and Egwene from Liandrin.
It becomes clear that Ishmael intends to use them to gain further favour in the Schenchean court as they are destined to become Demane. As the novices are handed over and Liandrin leaves, Elayne and Nynaeve manage to escape and are rescued from capture by Ryma, an Aes Sedai hiding in Falme. Egwene is leashed and presented to Turak by Suroth, who collars her binding her to a Sul’Dan.
Verin arrives at the White Tower and working with Yassica investigates the disappearance of the three girls, which draws suspicion on Liandrin’s cover story and leads her to evidence for the existence of the Black Ajah at Tar Valon, Aes Sedai sworn to the dark.
Elsewhere, Rand and Moiraine escape Lanfear, fleeing back to Cairhein and are taken in with Anvaere and her son Barthanes, who is delighted to have his Aunty back after 20 years. But, Moirraine’s intention is to put distance between themselves and Lanfear, realising the danger that she has put her family in, until Anavere gives her sister some of Moirraine’s own advice that she once gave her.
Moirraine decides to stay at House Damodred and have Rand enter Tel'aran'rhiod, the realm of dreams, where he might be able to learn what Ishamael is planning. Upon entering, Rand finds himself immediately captured by a waiting Lanfear.
