Summary

Contents
In which the Great War is renewed
Wherein speaking insect languages proves to be of value
A terrifying walk in the woods
Out of the shadows come deeper mysteries
The golden age
Nicholas St. North (A most unlikely source of help)
Is not really a chapter at all
just a piece of the greater puzzle
Where the impossible occurs with surprising regularity
The battle of the bear
In which a great many things occur swiftly
In which wisdom is proven to be a tricky customer indeed
Another short but Intriguing episode
The warrior apprentice proves to be clever
Wherein Wizard and apprentice make discoveries that prove to be momentous
Partly cloudy and most unfair
Anger, age, and fear make an unwanted appearance
A twist and turn
Sly is the evil that travels unknown
The telltale hoot
In which a twist of fate begets a knot in the plan
Laughter is a bitter pill
The oddest reunion
The longest night
The journey's end.
