Basha is on a quest for Tau’s Cup, to give to his beloved Jawen. He’s accompanied by his fiery adoptive brother Oaka, and stern mentor Sir Nickleby. Unbeknownst to him, they’re being followed by Nisa—his secret guardian—when tragedy strikes.
Beset by fear, doubt, and grief, the group is joined by the talkative falcon, Fato, and the guarded warrior, Monika. Can they all remain steadfast in their quest? Or will betrayal hunt them down in the fortress of Coe Aela? And what strange powers do they possess?
Back in Coe Baba, Habala unleashes her fire magic, Brigga spies on suspicious Smidge, and Iibala bonds with Sisila over secrets, as Old Man watches all. As the mayoral debate approaches, who’ll take the podium, and what fate awaits them?
