The Forsaken are loose, the Horn of Valere has been found and the
Dead are rising from their dreamless sleep. The Prophecies are
being fulfilled - but Rand al'Thor, the shepherd the Aes Sedai have
proclaimed as the Dragon Reborn, desperately seeks to escape his
destiny. Rand cannot run for ever. With every passing day the Dark
One grows in strength and strives to shatter his ancient prison, to
break the Wheel, to bring an end to Time and sunder the weave of
the Pattern. And the Pattern demands the Dragon.
