Twelfth book of the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson, published in 2009. In this book, Rand, who had made a Forsaken prisoner, is almost made prisoner by this foe and (unsuccessfully) coerced into strangling Min, but escapes by accessing a new, unknown source of power; the event makes hime turn even harder and pityless. He also attempts to make peace with the Seanchan, not to have them attacking his rear while he fights the Dark One, but Tuon refuses. Aviendha is finally accepted as an Aiel Wise One. Egwene, in the White Tower, manages to turn many influential Aes Sedai against their tyrannical ruler, and eventually, after a raid by the Seanchan, reunites all Aes Sedai and is chosen as Amyrlin Seat. She also obtains information about the Black Ajah (from an Aes Sedai who joined the Black to study it) and especially a list of Black Aes Sedai, which she uses to purge the White Tower. In the end, Rand finally understands why he has to (probably) die facing the Dark One, even though Lews Therin had done it (and failed) in the previous Age: the world gets a second chance, and love can make the events turn differently from the previous time. Lews Therin's voice disappears from his head and Rand laughs again for the first time.
