The salt mine Region 2 military encampment is on alert after a Yukkob with an obsidian-black shell was discovered by two gate guards. Major Risjias, the acting commander of the base, General Bavaey, and Councilor Dulis are gathered to uncover the mystery behind this creature. Their worries worsen when the identity of the fire monster is discovered to be an Akshaki, a member of the species that stole their language.

​With more questions than answers, General Bavaey struggles to maintain order and control over the base as Councilor Dulis attempts to supersede his authority. Tensions rise as their encampment is under siege by a new force: Yukkob with an obsidian black shell. As councilor and general struggle for control, the two sides must fight to keep the Akshaki from escaping the base and threatening the safety of their world.

This short 18,000-word story is part 2 of 9 of an 85,000-word book to be released over the course of 2023 and 2024.
