    Living among the Sachakan rebels, Lorkin does his best to learn about them and their unique magic.

Sonea searches for the rogue, knowing that Cery cannot avoid assassination forever, but the rouge's influence over the city's underworld is far greater than she feared. His only weakness is the loss of his mother, now locked away in the Lookout.

To the amazement of all who bear witness, the stone passes unhindered through the barrier and renders a magician unconscious.
