Cadsuane is curious to know why Moiraine is in Kandor, and Moiraine implies that she is seeking her first Warder. After Moiraine makes known her intent to travel to Chachin as soon as possible, Cadsuane arranges for Merean and Larelle to accompany her. Siuan Sanche arrives in Canluum.

She sees three men ahead, including the one she had seen earlier with an Aes Sedai, but keeps her distance until they separate.

The man, Lan, responds by throwing her into a nearby pond. Bukama and Ryne return later, and Moiraine asks the three to escort her to Chachin.

Some time after leaving Ravinda, Lan is hit by an archer. The attacker, mortally wounded by Ryne and Bukama, is Caniedrin, a soldier who had served with Lan during the Battle of the Shining Walls.

Returning to her rooms, Moiraine encounters Merean, who indicates that Larelle had changed her mind about travelling to Chachin. Moiraine becomes suspicious about Larelle's fate. Moiraine meets with Lan and asks for Merean's activities to be watched. After Moiraine reveals why the Aes Sedai failed to render aid to Malkier when it was attacked, Lan agrees to have Bukama watch Merean. Siuan returns with news that Lady Ines' child had been born one day after the Aiel retreat from Tar Valon, and that Bukama had witnessed Merean in the company of Prince Brys all day.
NS 26 Lan, pushed by someone wielding the Power, is almost killed in a fall down a flight of stairs, after which he is told of a serious injury to Bukama. Lan arrives to find Bukama dead from a dagger in his back. Lan confronts Moiraine about Bukama's death, and Moiraine, suspecting that Merean is Black Ajah and that Prince Brys is in danger, has Lan take her to Brys. Lan and Moiraine find Merean holding Brys and Diryk with the One Power on a walk on the outside of the palace. Also present is Iselle, also held by Merean, and Ryne, revealed to be a Darkfriend. Merean reveals Ryne's involvement in Bukama's death. Ryne attacks Lan, and Merean and Moiraine engage in a fight with the One Power. Shielded by Merean, Moiraine watches as Merean drops Diryk and then Brys off the walk to the rooftops below. Unable to channel, Moiraine stabs Merean as she attempts to move Iselle off the walk.

Lady Edeyn, mourning the loss of her daughter, abandons her efforts to revive the nation of Malkier. Siuan reveals that Rahien Demain was born in the wrong location to be the Dragon Reborn. Informed of Moiraine's fight with Merean, Siuan deduces that the Black Ajah, unaware of exactly when the Dragon was reborn, is attempting to kill any many who might be able to channel, including those that exhibit unusually good luck. Moiraine instructs Siuan to return to the White Tower and resume her work with Cetalia. Moiraine leaves Chachin and tracks down Lan outside the city. She asks him to bond to her as her Warder, and then explains her quest to find the Dragon Reborn. Lan agrees and accepts the bond. The two return to Chachin, and then travel on to Arafel.
