The tide of war begins to turn, though all might be washed away.
Hevith begins his initial assault and as the fighting brings him south, he calls to the Jahor, building his numbers. When he discovers a place where the Jahor have gathered, he finds those he’d thought lost and realizes the Jahor have known the dangers of the Hith far longer than he’d imagined. For him to end the fighting, he will have to unify his people, but that means hurting those he cares most about.
While the Volatar searches for the tu’alan to understand the war he’s waged since he was young, he finds a new challenge but thinks he might finally have a way to end the war for good. Chasing down answers leads him to new questions—along with a realization that even the tu’alan might have been wrong all along. How can he stop a war when he doesn’t even know how to find those responsible for starting it?
