|<<< To Ignore the Omens >>>|
|Setting: Ebou Dar, Tarwin's Gap, Cairhien, Thakan'dar|
- Point of view: Fortuona Athaem Devi Paendrag
Fortuona watches Mat, as he prepares the army. She summons him and proclaims that he is to be named “Knotai”. He is also named as Rodholder, which meant that if Galgan fell, then Knotai would assume contol over the armies.
They learn of the assault on the Amyrlin’s camp and Knotai wants the armies to move immediately. As Fortuona is the penultimate leader of the forces, Knotai convinces her to give the order to move.
- Point of view: Al'Lan Mandragoran
Lan receives orders from Agelmar that his forces would hit the Trollocs face-on. The plan seemed sensible.
However, Agelmar had complained of troubling dreams.
- Point of view: Elayne Trakand
Elayne has her troops positioned to face the Trolloc army. As she begins to address her troops, the sun was hidden by something dark.
She rallies the troops with her battlefield speech. Elayne insists on being part of the battle since she is also a channeler. The battle begins and Elayne realizes that Birgitte had been right to fear the power of the dragons.
- Point of view: Rodel Ituralde
Zaida tells him that the Windfinders battle the Dark One with the Bowl of the Winds to keep everyone from being destroyed by tempests. He tries to remain focused on the task at hand of defending the valley. He releases burning logs on the Trollocs and they are then driven into a wall of brambles. This left the bulk of the Trollocs frozen in the pass. Asha’man, arrows, rocks, and most of anything they could find was hurled at the Trollocs. The Trollocs broke away for the day.
Ituralde finds no peace in their victory, as he knows they will come back stronger.
