The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Into the Queen's court in Caemlyn, where Morgase is curiously in thrall to the handsome Lord Gaebril.

SummaryAdd a Summary
SUMMARY FROM WIKIPEDIA:
Chasing the Shaido Aiel, who are pillaging Cairhien, Rand al'Thor, titled Dragon Reborn and Car'a'carn, leads his Aiel to the Second Battle of Cairhien. Mat Cauthon saves some troops from a Shaido ambush; wins numerous battles, relying on the memories of past generals, transferred telepathically to himself; and personally kills the Shaido leader, Couladin, whereupon the Shaido Aiel retreat.
Falsely believing that Queen Morgase Trakand of Andor died at the hands of the Forsaken, Rahvin, masquerading as Lord Gaebril, Rand prepares to invade Caemlyn with a small Aiel strike force. Before he can do so, Lanfear attempts to kill him; but Moiraine Damodred grabs Lanfear and both topple through a ter'angreal, which is then destroyed, and both presumed dead. Thereafter Rand attacks Caemlyn. Shortly after arrival, Rand's companions are killed by Rahvin, and Rand attempts to eradicate Rahvin in Tel'aran'rhiod. Nynaeve al'Meara and Elayne Trakand travel through lands filled with Seanchan, Dragonsworn, bandits, and Whitecloaks, attempting to find the base of the rebel Aes Sedai. In Salidar, Nynaeve traps the Forsaken Moghedien in Tel'aran'rhiod with an a'dam. In Tel'aran'rhiod, Nynaeve distracts Rahvin, whereupon Rand destroys Rahvin with a tremendous burst of balefire, and thus revives Mat, Aviendha, and Asmodean.
