the Fade in White

It has to be said this had Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time influence: “Gaelan and I were in a forest, and we had telepathic contact with the wolves there. They warned us of an evil presence in the wood; the wolves were going to keep watch and protect us from it. I entered the body of a female wolf patrolling the trail just before a Fade (Jordan’s version of a faceless wraith) appeared in front of me, his cowl and robe white. His power froze me and he drew out of his cloak a strange device that looked like an icicle but appeared molten hot. He stabbed it into my spine, sending an extremely painful shock through my body as it paralysed and killed me.”
