8.3 What will be in the Lord of Chaos? *

Melissa Horn tells us:

While I was on vacation last week, I went to my favorite s/sf store, and they had just received the Tor catalog with....ta dah! a description of Lord of Chaos. I happily scribbled down most of the description therein. Due to speed and lousy handwriting, I may have changed a few prepositions and caps and suchlike.

It begins with:

"Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time... As the Wheel turns, the winds of fate roil across the land..." (and then I can't read the next sentence at all; I think it said something about the Forsaken laying traps.)

"The White Tower in Tar Valon, under the Amyrlin Elaida, has decided that Rand must be controlled - gentled, if need be - immediately. and in Salidar, the Aes Sedai in exile, also wish to bind Rand. Egwene al'Vere, although summoned to high office faces the knowledge that her colleagues also with to bind Rand.

Drought and summer heat linger into winter, and Nynaeve al'Meara and Elayne, The Daughter-heir of Andor, begin a desperate search for the fabled ter'angreal that may enable them to restore normal weather - a search that takes them among Whitecloaks bent on exterminating Aes Sedai.

Half a continent away, Perrin Aybara feels Rand's pull, ta'veren to ta'veren, and for the first time in a thousand years the bowmen of the Two Rivers march to war."
