Book Six of Robert Jordan’s acclaimed Wheel of Time series
Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time…
As the Whell turns, the winds of fate roil 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 Amyrlin Alaida 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 heart linger into winter and Nynaeve al’Mawea and Flayne, 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 Whitecloaks bent on exterminating Aes Sedai.
And across half a continent, Perrin Aybara feels rand’s pull, ta’ceren to ta’vereen, and for the first time in a thousand years the bowman of the Two Rivers march to war.
