The Stone of Tear, invulnerable fortress of legend, has fallen. The
Children of the Dragon have risen to the call of prophecy and march
to the aid of the Light. Callandor, the Sword That Is Not a Sword,
is held by Rand al'Thor, the man proclaimed as the Dragon Reborn.
But still the shadows lengthen and still the Forsaken grow in
strength. If he is to fight them, Rand must master the male half of
the True Source, a power corrupted by the Dark One, a power that
drives men to madness, a power that may save or damn the world.
