The preparations for the Last Battle continue, drawing into their peak as Rand al’Thor announces an amnesty for all men who want to learn to channel. This announcement draws an unlikely ally to his side, one that his advisors cannot trust. Let the Lord of Chaos rule in the epic sixth instalment of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time fantasy series!
Summary of the Book
A dark cloud looms above the White Tower. Siuan Sanche, the Amyrlin Seat, has been deposed and stilled by Elaida. Elaida has wrested the seat from the others, becoming the leader of the Tower and disbanding the Blue Ajah. Angered, dozens of Sisters leave the Tower, leaving it split in half for the first time in its entire history. They believe that Siuan Sanche is dead. They believe wrong. Meanwhile, the Dragon Reborn, Rand al’Thor, seeks to form a new Tower, one that he will use to train men who wish to channel. The plan seems insane at best, for what sort of men would want to draw on the One Power, inviting the madness that will surely follow. His advisors believe his so-called amnesty is flawed, doomed to fail. But Rand will do anything to prepare the world for the Last Battle. The Dark One is gathering his forces. The loss of his greatest generals has done little to dissuade him from his plans of returning to power. If anything, it has strengthened his resolve to destroy the Wheel of Time forever. The Forces of the Light are trying to stop him, but their plans are falling apart at every stage. The Rebel Aes Sedai try to find a new leader, rejecting Elaida’s claim to the Seat. They find her in the unlikeliest of candidates, one they think they can control. Elaida is scheming, she has her own diabolical plan for the Dragon Reborn. And Rand is busy placing his trust in a new ally, one that couldn’t possibly be on his side. Even as he begins to hear the voice of a dead man in his head, Rand wonders if he has finally lost his sanity to the foul taint on the Male half of the One Power. The Wheel of Time turns and the Last Battle draws closer. Lions sing in answer and the hills take flight. The sun rules by day and the moon by night. Blind women, deaf men and jackdaw fools know nothing. There can be only one ruler: so let the Lord of Chaos rule!
