Setting: Fal Dara, Shienar, Medo
Point of view: Egwene al'Vere

Fal Dara keep is in turmoil after an attempt on the life of The Amyrlin Seat, Siuan Sanche. Agelmar Jagad, Lord of Fal Dara immediately conducts a search for the bowman, but is, thus far, unsuccessful. The Amyrlin Seat insists on leaving for Tar Valon immediately, despite concerns from Lord Agelmar. Amid much fanfare, The Amyrlin Seat, Egwene al'Vere, Nynaeve al'Meara, and the Aes Sedai, accompanied by Shienarian soldiers, leave Fal Dara, heading west.

During the march, Egwene and Nynaeve are visited in their tents by several Aes Sedai, who give

them lessons in channeling the One Power. Nynaeve participates very reluctantly, and not very well because she cannot consciously channel except when angry. Alanna Mosvani and Liandrin both ask questions about Rand al'Thor, Matrim Cauthon, and Perrin Aybara during the lessons, Liandrin almost to the point of interrogation.

After a while, Egwene begins to have dreams about Rand being in danger, and feels that there might be more to them than just regular nightmares.

  • a man with a mask over his face, and fire in place of his eyes who was surprised to see her. Ba'alzamon
  • a woman standing over him looking down and she knew she was evil. - Lanfear
  • a feeling of danger as if a trap was just beginning to snap shut.

When they arrive at the village of Medo, she tells Anaiya, who begins to suspect she may be a Dreamer. During the conversation, Egwene discovers that Moiraine Damodred and her Warder, Lan Mandragoran, have left, followed closely by Liandrin, and then Verin Mathwin, all without warning. She then heads to the boat, The River Queen, on its way to Tar Valon
