"A story of transformation and retribution, a tale of renegades and deals with darkness."
With the menagerie destroyed and Helmsted in flight, Philip, Alayna, Beathan, and Azir set their sights on a new, and even more dangerous objective. An uneasy truce exists between them, but will the tentative trust between Philip and Azir continue to grow or will it vanish completely as the company forges an alliance with deadly enemies?
Meanwhile, finally reunited, Philip and Alayna struggle to discover if the pieces of their hearts still fit together. Are their emotions still bound to one another or have prior events changed them irrevocably?
Old and new bind together, as this journey culminates where so much of it began. It is a story of transformation and retribution, a tale of renegades and deals with darkness. More than anything it is an example of how far the bonds of friendship will go to keep each other safe.
