Fresh encounters and warm reunions abound on the next leg of Elaina’s journey. A witch in a birdcage. A distant princess and a phantom thief. A pinch of stardust. Hair the color of midnight. Sisters from the Country of Truth Tellers. A traveler’s path intersects with others’ only for fleeting moments, you see. Sometimes, the hardest lesson to learn is that every hello leads to a good-bye...and the journey never ends.
