There must be hope somewhere, but no-one knows where to find it. Caelum and his parents go to the Star Finger, hoping to discover the mountain's ancient secrets. Zared tries to help his people, but loses that which he loves most to the appetites of the TimeKeepers. Meanwhile, Faraday grows fearful, wondering if she will be trapped in her previous fate. Must she lose everything for this land?
Qeteb waits, as he has waited tens of thousands of years, for the Star Son, for revenge, for the hunt through the Maze. Death lurks in every twist of the Maze, but only those who have the courage to endure death can learn the secrets of the ancient Enemy.
