Five years later, the search for Orphane has stalled. A chance encounter brings him face to face with Azalea again, but he still has no way of restoring her body. And with a hostile group of wizards hunting him down, he may run out of time. Past and present collide as Orphane tries to figure out how to save Azalea from her former teachers and friends.
