And hope dawns …

“Home? If Demurral gets his way, none of us will have a home. When I touched the creature, I saw the place it had come from; I could see inside its mind.” Thomas paused and looked at Kate. “You don’t realize, Kate, Demurral has a plan for the future. If he succeeds, this world will be transformed beyond our understanding. Raphah told me that Demurral has a power that can call up the dead, control the wind and sea, and make those beasts in the glade follow his every word. There’s no going back; it is beyond our control.” …

Kate began to sob. “I want this to stop, I want to go back to how it was….I killed something tonight…I saw it die. It tried to kill you. Please, Thomas, make it stop. Make it stop.”
