! Summary


! Rand POV

[Rand] sticks around Fal Dara, saying that he's planning on leaving. In the meantime, he's learning swordwork from [Lan]. He stays long enough that he's still there when the [Amyrlin] arrives. [Moiraine] has his old clothes taken away and replaced with new clothes. ([TGH,Ch2]) One morning, Fal Dara is attacked. [Fades] and [Trollocs] have invaded. ([TGH,Ch6]) [Rand] heads to the dungeon, finds [Fain] is gone but left a message for him about [Falme]. The [Horn|Horn of Valere] and the [dagger|Ruby Dagger] have been stolen. The next morning, he has his audience with [Siuan]. ([TGH,Ch8]) After the meeting, [Rand], [Mat], [Perrin], [Loial] and the [Shienarans|Shienar] prepare to leave. [Hurin] is introduced as a sniffer. They start riding south. Three days later, they find a [Fade] nailed to a door. ([TGH,Ch10]) 

That night, [Ingtar] gives [Rand] a package from [Moiraine] which contains the [Dragon banner|Dragon Banner]. [Rand], [Hurin] and [Loial] go to sleep next to a [portal stone|Portal Stone] and wake up in a washed-out version of the world. [Hurin] can still smell the [Trollocs], so they keep going south. That night, [Rand] and [Ba'alzamon|Ishamael] dream-chat and [Rand] wakes up with a heron branded on his hand.([TGH,Ch15]). The next day, [Selene|Lanfear] shows up and keeps trying to get [Rand] to go back to the real world via another [Portal Stone], which he eventually does. They're now ahead of [Fain], so they wait until he catches up and then they go into the camp and steal back the [Horn|Horn of Valere] and the [dagger|Ruby Dagger]. ([TGH,Ch19]) They ride south into [Cairhien (Country)] and pass by a [Choedan Kal] which mesmerizes [Rand]. ([TGH,Ch20]) [Rand] remembers that [Bayle Domon] told him that there's another one on [Tremalking]. They stay overnight at [The Nine Rings] and in the morning, [Selene|Lanfear] has gone. [Rand] and the others head to [Cairhien (City)]. When they arrive, Daes Dae'mar begins. [Rand] runs into [Thom]. That night, [Thom] tells the story of [Owyn]. The next day they encounter [Aludra]. ([TGH,Ch27]) The day after that, their inn catches fire and the [Horn|Horn of Valere] and the [dagger|Ruby Dagger] are gone ([TGH,Ch30]). Soon after, [Mat], [Perrin] and [Ingtar] arrive and then %%brown [Verin]%% arrives. The next night they go to [Barthanes|Barthanes Damodred]' manor ([TGH,Ch32]). They try to go through the [Waygate|Ways] but [Machin Shin] stops them. [Barthanes|Barthanes Damodred] tells [Rand] that [Fain] is waiting for him at [Falme]. [Rand] and the others head to [Stedding Tsofu], where they meet [Erith] ([TGH,Ch35]). Three [Aiel] [Maidens|Maidens of the Spear] also arrive. [Perrin] and [Mat] tell [Rand] that the [Aiel] are looking for him. They try to use the nearby [Waygate|Ways], but [Machin Shin] is there again, so they head to a nearby [Portal Stone]. At the [Portal Stone], [Rand] randomly channels a symbol, causing all to see many visions of futures. ([TGH,Ch37]) They arrive at [Toman Head] and [Verin] tells them that four months have passed. 

They ride for three days looking for [Fain|Padan Fain]'s trail and stop at a village. They are still two days from [Falme]. They learn all about the [Seanchan|Seanchan (People)]. ([TGH,Ch41]) [Hurin] finally picks up [Fain]'s scent. [Ingtar] says he will take some men into [Falme] to get the [Horn|Horn of Valere], but [Verin] says five will go. The next morning, they enter [Falme] and [Mat] senses the [dagger|Ruby Dagger] in [Turak|Turak Aladon]'s house. They enter and take back the [Horn|Horn of Valere] and the [dagger|Ruby Dagger]. [Rand] fights [Turak|Turak Aladon] and wins. ([TGH,Ch45]) After that, they try to leave the city. When the two are together, [Ingtar] confesses to [Rand] to being a [Darkfriend] trying to come back into the Light. [Rand] forgives him ("The last embrace of the mother...") and Ingtar sacrifices himself so that the others can live. ([TGH,Ch45]) Still, they end up trapped, so [Mat] blows the [Horn|Horn of Valere] ([TGH,Ch47]). The  [Heroes of the Horn|Horn of Valere] appear and join the fight while [Rand] fights [Ba'alzamon|Ishamael] who stabs [Rand] in the side but then [Rand] stabs [Ba'alzamon|Ishamael] in the heart. Five days later, he wakes up. [Min] tells him that [Egwene|Egwene alVere], [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara], [Elayne|Elayne Trakand], [Mat|Matrim Cauthon], [Hurin] and %%brown [Verin|Verin Mathwin]%% left for [Tar Valon] with the [Horn of Valere] and the [ruby dagger|Ruby Dagger]. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] tried [Healing|Weaves] on his side wound, but it did not work. They tell him his battle with [Ba'alzamon|Ishamael] was seen in the sky by everyone in the area. [Cairhien|Cairhien (Country)] is in civil war because of him. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] found the two [seals|Seals] in [Turak|Turak Aladon]'s house. They are now broken. The [Dragon Banner] flies on a pole. [Masema|Masema Dagar] starts his Prophet role. [Rand|Rand alThor] finally accepts being the [Dragon Reborn|Rand alThor]. ([TGH,Ch49])
