The prequel novel to the globally bestselling Wheel of Time series - a fantasy phenomenon The city of Canluum lies close to the scarred and desolate wastes of the Blight, a walled haven from the dangers away to the north, and a refuge from the ill works of those who serve the Dark One. Or so it is said. The city that greets Al'Lan Mandragoran, exiled king of Malkier and the finest swordsman of his generation, is instead one that is rife with rumour and the whisperings of Shadowspawn. Proof, should he have required it, that the Dark One grows powerful once more and that his minions are at work throughout the lands. And yet it is within Canluum's walls that Lan will meet a woman who will shape his destiny. Moiraine is a young and powerful Aes Sedai who has journeyed to the city in search of a bondsman. She requires aid in a desperate quest to prove the truth of a vague and largely discredited prophecy - one that speaks of a means to turn back the shadow, and of a child who may be the dragon reborn.

Aardig, niets bijzonders.
Prequel naar de Wheel Of Time serie, en speelt zich zo’n 20 jaar VOOR ‘Eye of the World‘ af. Het advies was om dit te lezen na Crossroads of Twilight te lezen om eventuele spoilers te vermijden. Ik kan me echter geen (grote) spoilers herinneren. Wel geeft het zo’n beetje aan welke Aes Sedai wel of niet te vertrouwen zijn.

Dit is het verhaal hoe Moiraine Damodred en Siuan Sanche Aes Sedai werden. Net als veel andere prequels was het leuk om te lezen, maar feitelijk onnodig. Veel van de informatie wisten we al uit andere boeken.
