Chained, and bleeding, he ponders his chances of survival. But death does not come. He is captured and held captive by the creature. While Ferrin searches a way of escape, Lavender, his sister, searches for a way to rescue him. There is a darker secret still, and truths yet to be uncovered. Will a miracle befall Ferrin? Will Lavender be capable of his rescue? The future is uncertain.
