The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind.
In Tar Valon, Min sees portents of hideous doom. Will the White Tower itself be broken?
In the Two Rivers, the Whitecloaks ride in pursuit of a man with golden eyes, and in pursuit of the Dragon Reborn.
In Cantorin, among the Sea Folk, High Lady Suroth plans the return of the Seanchan armies to the mainland.
In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve.
Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn.....

"Large and splendid. The saga reaches a new level of emotional impact." --Chicago Sun-Times
"Fast and absorbing...will keep the reader...entranced." --Publishers Weekly
"An exciting, well-written adventure, Jordan offers distinctive heroes and themes, including an interesting look at relations between the sexes." --Milwaukee Sentinel
"A complex tapestry of fascinating characters, descriptive details and events. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves epic fantasy." --Carol Lynn Ukockis, Galactic Dispatch
"Robert Jordan writes with the stark vision of light and darkness, and sometimes childish sense of wonder, that permeates J.R.R. Tolkien's work. His style is undebatably his own." --The Pittsburgh Press
