In A Clash of Kings, Daenerys' Khalasar follows a comet into the Red Waste, a stretch of barren land. On the journey, she learns that Jorah, who has become her adviser, has fallen in love with her, and she is saddened by the fact that she does not return his feelings. She and her Khalasar eventually make it to the merchant city of Qarth. As the Qartheen are more interested in her dragons than her conquest of Westeros, she visits the House of the Undying in the hopes of gaining wisdom from knowing her future. But, though she sees visions of various things past and future, Daenerys learns that the Warlocks of the House of the Undying intend to keep her prisoner. Luckly, having brought the dragon with her, Drogon burns the tower to the ground. Eventually deciding to follow the advice of a masked woman to go east to reach west, Daenerys searches for a ship and is saved from an assassination attempt by an older Westerosi man called Arstan Whitebeard, who was sent by Illyrio. Illyrio also sent three ships to take Daenerys back to Pentos. Instead, she claims the ships as her own.
