Fourteenth book of the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson, published in 2012. The Trollocs are attacking on multiple fronts. Rand manages to unite all the people to fight in the Last Battle under Elayne's command. He also convinces Tuon that the Seanchan must take part in the battle against the Shadow. In the Black Tower, Taim is revealed as a Darkfriend and turns Asha'men to the Shadow. Logain, his prisoner, resists and with a few followers manages to escape when Perrin, in the World of Dreams chasing Slayer, deactivates the ter'angreal that prevents making gateways. The battle is going badly for the forces of the Light, especially since the four Great Captains are under Compulsion from Moghedien and do mistakes on purpose. They are howerver relieved of their command and Mat, unaffected by the Power thanks to his medallion, becomes the General of the armies. Meanwhile, Rand enters a cave in Shayol Ghul and confronts the Dark One in spirit while swordfighting against Moridin. He is shown possible futures where the Shadow wins and where Rand kills it as he intends, but none of them seems good to Rand. On the battlefield, Galad and Gawin die figthing Demandred, leader of the Sharans, who have suddenly appeared on the Shadow's side; Egwene dies as well, burned out by drawing too much Power while reparing the rips in the Pattern caused by Demandred's repeated use of balefire. Faile, in charge of taking the Horn of Valere from Tar Valon to Mat, ends up with the Horn in the Blight, and then at a Trolloc's camp. She gives Olver the Horn, asking him to find Mat, while she disappear distracting the Trollocs. Olver, trapped, eventually sounds the Horn, making the Heroes of the Horn appear and fight along the forces of the Light. Lan finally manages to kill Demandred while Rand understands that the Dark One cannot be killed and closes the Bore, preventing it from reaching the world again. He then wins against Moridin and exits the cave carrying his body. The Shadow being without a leaders, the forces of Light eventually win the battle. The last of the Forsaken are killed or taken prisoner. Rand apparently dies, and his body is burned on a public funeral pyre, but his spririt wakes up in Moridin's body; he quitely leaves.
