Moiraine and Lan find help in an unexpected - and unwanted - quarter, as the separated villagers try to find their way back to each other, or at least to refuge. But they all soon learn how far the Dark One's reach extends, and how few they can trust on the road.
Set in a sprawling world where magic exists but can only be used by women, the story follows Moiraine, a member of the shadowy and influential all-female organization the Aes Sedai, as she embarks on a dangerous journey with five young men and women. Moiraine's interest in these five lies in the fact that she believes one of them might be the reincarnation of an incredibly powerful individual who prophecies say will either save humanity or destroy it.
