Jordan again plunges us straightaway into the events unfolding on the continent of Cordizal. Though the war between the Five Kingdoms and the undead Scourge continues, the focus in Book 2 is on the unfolding scheme of the mysterious figure Ta'Lin and his followers.

His scheme threatens to bring an end to the Five Kingdoms themselves, and may lead to a fate worse than death for their citizens. Book 2 picks up right where Book 1 left off. (My review of the first book is here .) While there is the occasional bit of backstory provided, most of the action proceeds apace.
