Pursued by increasing numbers of Trollocs and Myrddraal, the travellers take refuge in the abandoned city of Shadar Logoth , where Mat is infected by the malevolent Mashadar. While escaping the city the travelers are separated; Rand, Mat, and Thom travel by boat to Whitebridge , where Thom is lost allowing Rand and Mat to escape a Myrddraal. In Caemlyn , Rand befriends an Ogier named Loial. Trying to catch a glimpse of the recently captured False Dragon , Rand befriends Elayne Trakand , heir apparent to the throne of Andor , and her brothers Gawyn Trakand and Galad Damodred. Rand is then taken before Queen Morgase and her Aes Sedai advisor, Elaida ; and released without charge, in spite of Elaida's grave pronouncements regarding Rand. Egwene and Perrin are guided separately to Caemlyn by Elyas Machera , a man who can communicate telepathically with wolves and who claims that Perrin can do the same. The three run afoul of the Children of the Light , where Perrin kills two for the death of a wolf at their hands, and is sentenced to death.
They have certain powers stemming from the Dark One , including the ability to cause paralyzing fear with a look and the ability to vanish wherever there are shadows. One of their few known weaknesses is that they are reluctant to cross running water.
In different lands they are known by many names, among them Halfmen, the Eyeless, Shadowmen, Lurk, and Fade. The vast majority of people are completely unable to learn to channel the One Power.
A very small number can be taught to channel, and an even tinier number have the ability inborn. For these few there is no need to be taught; they will touch the True Source and channel the Power whether they want to or not, perhaps without even realizing what they are doing. This inborn ability usually manifests itself in late adolescence or early adulthood.

A great authority, who has dealt exhaustively with the subject of the Occult Sciences, including Omens, Augury, and Astrology, does not even allude to the belief in the evil eye, which we take to be the basis and origin of the Magical Arts.
About these the earliest known writings and the most ancient monuments give abundant evidence. Tylor calls the belief in magic "one of the most pernicious delusions that ever vexed mankind"; and considering magic merely as the handmaid, or the tool, of envy, this description accords well with that of Bacon, as the vilest and most depraved of all "affections.
The reason we assign is, that outward circumstances, such as local natural features, or climate, tend to make the mental condition of certain people specially susceptible of feelings, upon which magical arts can exert an influence altogether out of proportion to the culture of the persons affected.

All in all, I'm just dying to get my hands on the next book! I decided to re-read the series because I found myself unable to read anything else without saying "well, it's not as good as Robert Jordan I gave this first book only 4 stars because I have to admit that when I first read it, I was not completely hooked.
