A rider on horseback on a hill looks back at Ebou Dar. The rider is Seanchan and hopes the Ebou Dari will resist the return of the Seanchan. He thinks about Mat's comment he heard while playing dice in The Wandering Woman (LoC,Ch52) and thinks "Perhaps the Return would come soon, and the Daughter of the Nine Moons with it. Surely that would be the greatest omen of victory."

"The unstained tower breaks and bends knee to the forgotten sign.
The seas rage, and stormclouds gather unseen.
Beyond the horizon, hidden fires swell, and serpents nestle in the bosom.
What was exacted is cast down; what was cast down is raised up.
Order burns to clear his path.

Governor of the Province of Andor for
the High King, Artur Paendrag Tanreall"
