The Dragon Reborn has again come into the world. It is unthinkable that this tiny and helpless babe has been prophesied to one day have the power to either destroy the world or save it from the sinister reach of the Dark One. Moiraine has been charged to seek out and protect the infant before he is found by others who would destroy him and change the fate of the world forever. But before Moiraine can embark upon her quest, she must complete her journey toward becoming an Aes Sedai. For the sake of the world, she submits to a series of perilous tests to prove herself worthy of joining the elusive and powerful order, facing her greatest fears and ready to cheat death itself.
