After returning to Cairhien, in the Sun Palace Merana accepts to be used as a servant by Rand to convince some of the Aiel clan chiefs that he is not an Aes Sedai puppet. Some time after Cadsuane Melaidhrin arrives in Cairhien and takes Merana away and questions her heavily on events that have transpired lately. But after it, Merana takes the courage to confront Cadsuane directly and asks her about her intentions to the Lord Dragon and Merana also tells her that she will help and protect him with the aid of the others sworn sisters.
Some time after Rand, as the Coramoor, meets with Harine din Togara Two Winds, as the Extraordinary Embassador from the Mistress of Ships of the Atha'an Miere; after the meeting he leaves Merana Ambrey and Rafela Cindal to negotiate his Bargain with Harine. Rand initially isn't too pleased with the two Aes Sedai over the final points of the Bargain, causing Merana to strongly chastise him for his unfair expectations of the sisters. Surprisingly, Rand accepts this and apologizes to Merana and Rafela, while realizing the political advantages that were made in the bargain.
In Far Madding Rand orders to Alanna to picks up Merana and the others sworn Aes Sedai in Cairhien, to go negotiate with the Tairiens rebels. Merana is spotted by the Rebel Amyrlin Seat's Eyes-and-ears in Tear, possibly mediating a negotiation between the Steward of the Dragon High Lord Darlin Sisnera, and the leaders of the rebel forces, High Lord Tedosian and High Lady Estanda.
She finally draws an agreement with the rebel High Lords of Tear. The terms are that the rebels will disperse in return for Darlin being made king.
