Excerpt from the Summary:
Escorted by Thelon DeKinder, Amelia Moore exits the Elven kingdom of Fi. Once her crashed shuttle, still cloaked in the guise of a dead wyvern, is discovered, the pair settle in for the night with a fire and game to roast. The fire’s light draws in Cdr. Vreenak and his away team, who find themselves challenged by DeKinder. Conversation begins, and peace is the mutual objective. Aboard Hope, Cdr. Byrne has a counseling session with Janelle James. Upon returning to the bridge, they find the ship ringed by a massive army. Their king, Calmest, issues a greeting and a wish for peaceable interaction. Byrne and James follow Capt. Barlow onto the field to meet with the king and his men.
Negotiations are begun on two fronts. Before Hope’s fierce countenance, King Calmest presents a serene image to Capt. Rick Barlow, as Janelle James and Colin Byrne look on. In the depth of the wood, Anam Farooqi, Gabriel Logan, Talla Vreenak, and Marisol Hocevar join with Thelon DeKinder and Amelia Moore. In the fire’s glow, the conversation quickly moves to the next phase of their journey, crossing the Blighted grounds to locate the mysterious Source.
On the plain, Calmest asserts his power, agreeing to meet with the Dragon in the company of Cns. James. Capt. Barlow is to remain behind, hostage, to assure the king’s safe return. A nervous archer sets off a domino effect, sending the Reptilian Colin fleeing for his life. He travels a great distance to evade the army’s pursuit, before hunkering down for the night. In the wood, the meting by the fire takes a new sense, as the away team’s guide, a dwarf known as “Hammer,” rudely presents himself.
