** spoiler alert ** This book begins as Rand slips away from the group to head to Tear, where he believes the first of the Prophecies of the Dragon will take place, if he is in fact the Dragon Reborn. Moiraine, Lan, Perrin and Loial follow, along the way meeting Faile Bashere. Mat is taken by Verin, Elayne, Egwene and Nynaeve to the White Tower for Healing, having picked up a cursed item.

At the Tower Nynaeve, Egwene and Elayne are charged by Siuan Sanche, the Amyrilyn, to hunt the Black Ajah, Aes Sedai dedicated to the Dark One. After Healing Mat leaves Tar Valon and meets back up with Thom Merrilin and they uncover a plot by one of the Forsaken to kill Elayne and her mother, Queen Morgase of Andor. Seeking to protect Elayne he follows after her and Egwene and Nynaeve who are on their way to Tear.

The three women are captured by the Black Ajah, but are rescued by Mat and a few others. Faile falls into a trap meant for Moiraine, and Perrin risks his life in the dream world to rescue her. Rand battles one of the Forsaken in the Stone of Tear, and the Aiel reveal themselves to be The People of the Dragon, fulfilling one of the Prophesies of the Dragon.
