Chapter Icon: Frayed Weaving

Points of View: Aviendha, Mishraile, Pevara, Aviendha


Androl and Pevara trick Alviarin and her companions, imprisoning the in a stedding. Hessalam is forced to flee, a severely injured Aviendha accompanying her.


Aviendha's Point of View:

Location: Near Shayol Ghul

Characters: Aviendha, Alivia, Amys, Cadsuane, Hessalam, Rhuarc

Around Shayol Ghul, the Windfinders are no longer controlling the lightning, and it strikes randomly. Aviendha flees Hesselam, who attacks her with balefire. The Shadow is winning. She sees a strange mist, and Trollocs fighting each other. All around her, she sees physical impossibilities. She encounters Amys and they agree to attack Hessalam together. She sees plants begin to grow in the once barren ground and in the skies, the clouds form the ancient symbol of the Aes Sedai. She realises it is Rand, combating the Dark One. She watches as Cadsuane and Alivia fight Hessalam and sees that one of Hessalam's captives, Sarene has collapsed, blank eyed. She hears a noise behind her, and spins round, killing her attacker with fire, before realising it was Rhuarc

Mishraile's Point of View:

Location: The Field of Merrilor

Characters: Mishraile, Alviarin, Androl, Ayako, Donalo, Kash, Nensen, Rianna

Mishraile decides to leave, now that the Heroes of the Horn had arrived. He resents Alviarin being in charge and thinks he might have to kill her, and Nensen, who she has bonded. Alviarin opens a gateway in the hopes of finding the dragons. Donalo tells him they have been tricked, and he agrees. Then thinks he will have to kill Donalo. They see Androl, disguised as Rand, and follow him when he flees, using Donalo's talent of reading residues. Alviarin decides she needs a circle, but decides only to include Rianna and Nensen. They see Androl, and chase after him, thinking him weak and an easy target, but instead, enter a stedding, where they are apprehended.

Androl's Point of View:

Location: Stedding Sholoon

Characters: Androl, Jonneth, Lindsar, Pevara

Pevara asks if the dreadlords will be executed, and are told no, they will just be held. Androl warns the Ogier that the captives are dangerous, but the Ogier are not concerned. Androl hopes that in tie, they may be able to free Donalo from what was done to his mind.

Aviendha's Point of View:

Location: Near Shayol Ghul

Characters: Aviendha, Alivia, Amys, Cadsuane, Graendal, Talaan, Sashalle Anderly

Aviendha sees Hessalam dueling with her allies, and realises they are tiring more than she is. She sees Sashalle collapse, worn out by Hessalam. Aviendha weaves a spear, of fire, air and spirit and prepares to attack. She leaps for Hessalam, avoiding a weave of earth aimed at the ground, but the resulting explosion rips apart er legs, breaking bones and flaying skin. She realises Hessalam is about to travel with the True Power and manages to sink the spear into her side before she finishes the weave, and is taken with her.
