Jane and her tired companions seek only refuge from a thick, mysterious fog, but someone has darker plans for them. Those plans lead them to the burnt-out remains of an old building complex where the past doesn’t lie peacefully below the surface. Jane somehow feels drawn to the strange place with its air of dark mystery and is compelled to touch the ruins.
The next thing they know the charred remains vanish and they stand in the middle of a pristine garden. They’re also surrounded by fox shifters bearing weapons and old-fashioned garb. A pointed question reveals that the group has been thrown back in time some one thousand years to just before the complex was destroyed.
As Jane learns more about the past and grows to care about the many lives under the roof of the grand house, she’s faced with a daunting dilemma. The past has already been written, but might they rewrite those events? And if they change the past, what will happen to their future? Will they remain trapped in the past forever, or worse, cease to exist at all? And yet even with those dangers, can she stand by and watch so many kind souls perish in the tragedy that is destined to come?
