“Your book is an incredible thing. I recognise so much of my home in it, even a few things I didn’t know. I’d been planning to keep it, but as you’re still around, I thought you might like it back. I hope you continue to work on it. I fear that the place we both know is lost with the Sharrow’s death. The book is a fitting tribute.”
Having decided to head East the survivors of Carn Veskl gather their belongings. Soon they’ll climb the steep path out of the valley into Cenja, a territory devoted to mourning. A forested landscape dotted with graves, tombs and graves from a thousand cultures; where fruit grows bland and grief lingers like a thick fog. As the caravan prepares to leave there are a few moments – to heal wounds, to make plans, to catch-up with old friends. Venz returns a book, Belka reunites with Vilte, Bris shares unwelcome wisdom and Challa sees a bird.
