The Land is One with the Dragon - and the Dragon is One with the
Land. The Shadow lies across the Pattern of the Age, and the Dark
One has turned all his power against the prison that binds him. If
it fails he will escape and nothing will stand in the storm that
blows then . . . save the man that was born to battle the darkness:
Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn. But to wage his war Rand must find
Callandor, ancient Sword of the Dragon . . . and the Forsaken will
shatter the world to thwart him.
