The King has been defeated and the spirit of the Mantra has been restored, Suni has been reunited with her father and all is – not quite right.
Wanda and his cousin Luna are living in the valley beyond the mountains: Luna is possessed and dreams of dragons while Wanda, gifted with an affinity for animals, blamed by Luna’s mother Ntombi for her condition, struggles with the curse of Orag.
Meanwhile, in the town by the sea, Suni fears for Wanda, and watches over him using her gift for dreamwalking. Many, including Suni’s father, suffer from a strange affliction and the townspeople are blaming the Mantra.
Then the strangers arrive from the sea bringing hope for the town: but in this land of gifts and curses, nothing is as it seems.
