After being pushed out of Feesia by the Guild, Khaly and the Underground are forced back to her home continent of Nylm Hills to retreat into the frozen mountains.
Brooding more each day over the mysterious chest left behind by her parents, Khaly resolves to uncover its truth.
Meanwhile, Bancroft, haunted by memories of the girl he loved, must choose between remaining with his friends or returning to war-torn Feesia in search of his love, to learn if – and how – she survived.
What will Khaly find in the old chest? Will the group stay together to continue to fight? Can they land a crippling blow to their enemy, or is the Guild preparing its most sinister plan yet?
