A Memory of Light: Chapter 19
Chapter Icon: Five dice, arranged in a ring
Elayne and Bashere realize the Trollocs are going after Cairhien. Egwene meets with the Wise Ones and then Rand. Mat is outfitted for a Seanchan military outfit.
Elayne's Point of View:
Location: Along the bank of the Alguenya
Elayne and Bashere look down at the Alguenya river. The discuss the trap that they walked into. Scouts spotted a Trolloc army coming from the north and heading to Cairhien; a city now filled with refugees.
Egwene's Point of View:
Egwene enters Tel'aran'rhiod. She meets with the Wise Ones in the Heart of the Stone. She overhears them discussing Melaine seeing through the eyes of her descendents on her third visit to Rhuidean as Aviendha did. Egwene approaches the group and they ask her if she has noticed the odd deep black cracks in the rocks. They seem to appear more frequently when the Dreadlords fight. Egwene says that they are probably caused by Balefire which Aes Sedai are forbidden to use. Amys tells Egwene that they will not be visiting the World of Dreams much anymore. They say their farewells to each other. Egwene awakes and meets with Rand. He presents her with a ribbon, which initially makes her angry, but he tells her that he wants to make amends and to go into the Last Battle as friends. He says Egwene was always like a sibling to him and that the sibling he does have doesn't know him. This shocks Gawyn to learn that Rand is the half brother of Galad. Egwene shows Rand the seals at his request. He reveals that what she has is a fake. The Dark One holds the keys to his own prison.
Mat's Point of View:
Location: Ebou Dar
Not having people look at him is frustrating Mat. He is introduced to Nata, his personal tailor who is making his new regalia. Mat just barely keeps from having his hat burned. They make him a ceremonial warriors outfit which seems too ridiculous and overdone to Mat. They lacquer his fingernails and he comes to the realization that he is a bloody nobleman now.
